So I got my annual report from WordPress on how many people are reading this site, which were my most popular posts, and from where all of you hail.
The most read post of 2014 was the Open Thread: Teaser Reax on November 28. My second-most popular post was from 2013! It was about the technical issues with the Clone Wars S5 Blu-Ray. Go figure. The rest were one of my Undeniable Facts About ROTS, my post about Anakin and Padmé from March, and l’affaire Whitta from May.
The U.S.A. ranked first in the amount of eyeballs…107,861 views. ‘Murica!! I’m also popular in Canada, the UK, Mexico, France, Brazil, Spain, Germany, and…Slovokia (though I have a fair number of views throughout Europe).
On the Asian/Pacific/Indian front, Australia comes in first with Malaysia in second. I’ll have to do better to break into the Chinese market in 2015 since I don’t have much of a readership there.
Then there are the surprising locations, given that these are places in the middle of war zones, places not exactly known for their freedom, or that wouldn’t have a lot of access to/influence from Western pop culture. It’s possible they are Western readers who are in the military or doing gigs as aid workers, teachers, etc.. But I’m still amazed there’s somebody in Mongolia, Iraq, Burma (aka Myanmar), and Cuba who’s tuning in.
Finally, the #1 commenter is Adam. M. Marshall, lovelucas, PrinceOfNaboo, and Tarrlok round out the top five.
