I understand, Eric, your wanting more and more followers (and commenters, etc.). I almost didn’t even start my blog as I thought it would be a waste of my (precious ;->) time. After I finally had it up & running, it took me months just to figure out how to do certain things, like share it in other sites. And I still haven’t figured out how to get those flags in there (though I have them in my blogspot blogs. Those blogs are not about writing – they are about other subjects that interest me.)

At the time of writing this I have 246 followers and my best day I had 192 views. Small compared to some but still progress.
What I really like is seeing is the breakdown of the origin of viewers overall. Most of mine come from the USA not the UK. But I also get quite a few from all countries of the globe. I have had 44 from the Netherlands mainly due to some friends I used to play WoW with and have stay in touch over Facebook. I’ve had 29 from Thailand all…
