Every once in awhile, I take a look at the site statistics for Shortening the Road . After doing some simple math, I discovered that in the past year this site gets about 250 hits and about 340 page views every month! That can't all be from my Mom! According to Blogger, my wee blog is clocking in at over 23 000 pageviews since 2008 and my visitors come from all over the world (these are all-time pageviews): Belgium 9022 United States 5629 Canada 3912 Russia 1566 Netherlands 830 United Kingdom 586 Ukraine 518 Germany 429 France 403 Slovenia 384 Oddly, there are more than twice as many visitors from Belgium than my own home country of Canada. Could it be that I'm Big in Belgium and I don't even know it? Wherever you come from, thanks for stopping by! I would really love to hear from you, so please leave me a comment.
