One of the ways I monitor this blog's traffic is by checking Sitemeter every day. They have lots of fun features, one of which is a world map that shows where my last 100 visitors came from. The map isn't particularly useful, but it's interesting to know that people in places like Denmark and Turkey and New Guinea and Philippines have popped over to read my blog. You can see my traffic map here. Zoom in and find yourself!
And then maybe somebody can explain why I get traffic from all over the world but never Alaska. Have I offended Alaskans in some way?
