I use WordPress to write my blog. One of its features is you can look at a section called Your Stats. This allows you to see how many people have looked at your blog (though not who they are) and how they found it – Facebook, email, Google search, etc. You can also see in which countries people have looked at your blog.
I started writing a few months ago to keep our friends and family updated on how our family is doing here in Alaska. I don’t have very many overseas friends, so I didn’t expect to see any other countries. I was a little shocked to see I’ve had two views in both Canada and England and 16 (!!) in Norway. I don’t know anyone in Norway. Amazing!
If you’re family or Texas friends, I hope you’ll keep following our family. And if you’re someone who has somehow found my little blog on a Texas family’s adventure in Alaska, I’d like to say, “Hello, Hi, Howdy and Welcome!” Please keep checking in on us. And if I knew how to say that in Norwegian, I would. 🙂
