WordPress site stats -obsession or plan for world domination?

my blog world domination as of 16/1/2013

I’ve only had this blog for 2 or 3 months and I’ve come to really love it.  I love writing about stuff as much as I enjoy reading about what other people are up to.  What started as an experiment has become a part of my life, possibly to the slight annoyance of the BF.

But, behind the love I am harbouring an obsession.  I’m addicted to the wordpress stats pages!  Specifically, I love the map.  I was only getting hits from big westernised countries and similar eg USA, Canada.  Then out of the blue I got a hit from Argentina.  Argentina, I thought, why is someone in Argentina interested in what I have to say?  Then I had a visitor from Sri Lanka and then the Phillipines.

Before I knew it I was hooked.  Never mind about pages views, when I log on with my laptop I want to see if there are any new bits of the map coloured in :-).  I’ve got 14 countries so far, now the challenge is to see how quickly I can collect the rest of the world – I’m not a megalomaniac honest…………

Hmmmmm, wonder what can I write about to attract interest from far flung places like Bolivia, or Bali, or India?

      …….and so it begins :-). it all seems so innocent and then when someone somewhere exotic views your blog you crave more. its worse than chocolate I tell you! Good luck resisting 🙂

      Its even more addictive than ‘likes’ and views. hows your world map looking?

        well done, keep up the good work. One day the world will be yours, and when you’re done with it I’ll have it 🙂
