I think the WordPress metrics must have gone a little haywire yesterday. It registered 302 visits to my Coffeehouse Observer blog yesterday. That’s pretty good for a tiny blog I barely promote, but I’m not letting my head swell. Before yesterday, the blog metrics registered about 1,366 visits in the entire year since I started commenting on the things I see in the coffeehouse. I have no illusions that somehow the world suddenly “discovered” Coffeehouse Observer. It must be a glitch. But a fun one.
Go to Coffeehouse Observer for more coffeehouse observations.

This cracks me up just a little bit. I have “Letters From Away” on two platforms – WordPress and Blogger – because when I first started the blog I wanted to spread out the reach a little bit.
Anyway, one of the features on the Blogger metrics is a list of countries in which visitors to the blog are located. What strikes me somewhat odd – yeah, “odd” is the word – is how many visitors are from countries such as China, South Korea and Singapore.
I know one person who is currently in one of those countries. She’s working at a newspaper in Beijing.
The only other person I knew who regularly traveled to that part of the world no longer travels there. At least, as far as I know.
I’m guessing visitors from those countries are merely stumbling on me via a search engine. I seriously doubt I have an international following. I don’t have the ego to believe that.
But it is proof – as if we needed more proof – that the world is a pretty small place.
Here’s the list from the past day or so.
