Interesting [if a little depressing] statistics...

Sometimes the widgets a blogger adds to a site tell you a lot about that person. And sometimes they tell me some things about you. Case in point: the "WorldVisitors" gimmick on the right side of this blog. It's been up for about a month now, so I think it's safe to make some observations based on it.
Most of my readers live in North America. No surprise there, except the fact that only about 30 people from the US and Canada [and possibly Mexico, for all I know] have stopped by. Well, I'll try to provide my selective audience the best in blogging goodness.
Some of the non- North American visitors come from surprising places. I mean, I only have one reader in all of the United Kingdom! [Whomever you are, sir or madame, I celebrate your good taste] There's been one visitor from all of Oceania {New Zealand, to be specific; I don't know what Australians read], and one, surprisingly, from Finland [I don't resemble the President, like Conan O'Brien; maybe its the photos].
The rest of the world couldn't give a rat's behind about this blog. Somehow, THAT fact isn't too surprising.

Well, anyway, having been humbled and intrigued all at the same time, I can only promise to do what I do best. Whatever that is...
