A quick post to follow-up on my last blog post.
In a week I have gone from having a dozen Twitter followers (nearly all classmates at UAF required to follow me for class) to 73. I’ve moved from following maybe 20 people — and never actually looking at what they post — to following 166 people carefully selected based on the content they create. (See more on my Twitter (re)Awakening here.) I went looking into the data on my Twitter account and my blog (which I promoted on Twitter for the first time yesterday). Here’s what I found on TweepsMap and using WordPress built-in analytics:
People who follow me on Twitter (locations, rounded to .1%):
1.9% each of Denmark, Serbia, Italy, New Zealand, France, and Portugal
The above US group breaks down further:
7.4% North Carolina
3.7% each of New York, California, Indiana, Washington
1.9% each of Colorado, S. Carolina, Connecticut, Louisiana, Arkansas, Virginia, Hawaii, Missouri, Iowa, Florida, and “Other” US.
That’s almost 25% non-US! 10 countries and 16 of the United states are represented.
Views of this blog yesterday (3/5/13) alone (locations):
44 United States
2 each from Canada, France, and Spain
1 each from Belarus, Serbia, India, Hungary, Australia, Korea, Portugal, and Italy
49 of the above views were a result of me tweeting my blog post and a couple people re-tweeting it. Only 5 hits came in via my link in Facebook — those people who are my personal friends. There were 52 unique visitors to the blog.
