Who are those guys? Or gals?

I was just looking at the stats on my blog.  Pretty interesting.  For example, there have been 265 page views in the past week.  I expect a bunch of them have been mine.  219 of them were from the United States.  But also represented were Australia, Germany, France, the United Kingdom and Canada.  I can understand that because I frequently read bloggers in all of those countries.  So they read me.

But what I find interesting is the other countries represented.  Iran, Malaysia, Egypt and South Korea.  Iran is my second highest number of page views with 18.  I don't think I've ever had a comment by anyone from Iran, not to mention anyone from Egypt or South Korea, so that has me curious.  I think I have heard from someone in Malaysia once but it's been a long time ago.

In a line made famous by a movie in which either Butch Cassidy (Paul Newman) or the Sundance Kid (Robert Redford) said it over and over as they were being pursued by a Pinkerton man . . "who are those guys?"

You have become world famous.

I love the stats feature. It's incredible the number who read, vs the number who comment.

Stats are a constant puzzle to me. I get quite a few from the Ukraine and fear most of them, along with far eastern ones, must be potential spammers.

The most pageviews goes consistently to a guest post of my brother's which I posted about cats, it's had easily twice as many as any other. I've even added a PS question to it asking where people are coming from to read it and can they leave a comment to tell me, but to no avail. I can only conclude cats means stats!

Ooh, wv is 'belly'!
