Checking Blogger Stats On A Rainy Day

I intended for this to be posted three days ago, but something went wrong and I've been busy so didn't notice. Anyhow, here it is:

Today, Monday, is a miserable day outside. Just the kind of day, I was longing for in our long, hot and dry summer. So I can't complain. And we're getting quite a bit of rain from that bomb cyclone to the north of us. I haven't seen rain for so long, I must go outside and let it rain on me. How I've missed the sounds and smells of rain. 

I had a busy week last week and my great-niece, Jasmine, came to visit me on Sunday. Before she left, she wanted to be sure to schedule another visit. This touched my heart. She's 17, very caring, very bright, and a joy to sit and talk to. I've decided to stay in bed today to rest, read, and write. Maybe watch the Sunday movie I missed yesterday. I have a movie afternoon every Sunday. Something new I started this summer. It's becoming a tradition. 

Reading about blogger stats, I decided to visit mine, something I haven't done for many years. 

Here are the results for the past Three Months:

Most popular post:  Another Puzzle Done. -- I was hugely surprised by the interest in this. And embarrassed too since I'm a puzzle beginner and maybe these viewers' expectations were high for a real difficult puzzle solved.

Second most popular: 25-Year Old Otis Wins Fat Bear Contest. -- I'm happy this one was popular. I'm in with love this contest myself. 

Third most popular: Wildfire Smoke Causes Breathing Issues. -- I've noticed that scary posts and those about illness, even a cold, will draw readers. 

In Pages, the most popular was Contact Me, with triple the number of views of each of the above posts. Which is so interesting, because no one has contacted me. As far as I know. 

Could spammers be checking this? 

And Faith would be upset to learn that  Conversations With Samson got more views than my conversations with her. Even though he doesn't speak English nearly as well as she does. But, of course, he's the Fluffy one. 

Then I clicked on More About This Blog where I found where the people who read it resides. 

My blog has the largest audience in the United States, no surprise there.

Followed by Sweden. Now this surprised me because it's never been the case before. 

Then Indonesia, how I would love to get to know you better, but you have to leave a comment for that to happen.  

It was fun to look and I'm not done yet. I want to go back and look at all the people who signed up to follow my blog. There's a place for them somewhere. Sometimes I wonder how those I knew who stopped blogging are doing, are they OK?

The sky was gorgeous this morning. 

Have a Happy Day, Everyone!
