I hadn't checked my blog visitor map for absolutely ages until a couple of days ago, and was thrilled to see all the readers I've had, from all over the world!
The top twenty countries my blog visitors come from are, in order:
I can't help noticing from the map that I've never had any blog visitors from Madagascar, Siberia or most of Central Africa. Hmph. :-) Great to see that I've had a fair few readers in South America and Asia, though.
Since 2008, the blog has had almost 350,000 page views. Between 150 and 230 people visit the blog every day. My Facebook page about Edward has almost 800 fans now.
I happened to do Google searches for Edward II's friends Sir Roger Damory and Donald, earl of Mar recently, and found that the top results for them are my blog (I have the top three results for Damory!). It's also third on Google's results for Piers Gaveston, with my friend Anerje's blog just behind, yay.
A big resounding THANK YOU to all my readers, whether you're regulars or occasional visitors or one of the many hundreds of people who find my article explaining why William Wallace couldn't have been Edward III's father after watching Braveheart when it's on television yet again. :-) I've been writing this blog for the best part of six and a half years now, since 3 December 2005. Here's to the next six and more years of the Edward II blog, and lots more 'myth-squidging' as someone on Tumblr (linking to the blog) so nicely described it a couple of days ago. :-)
