It’s frustrating when you’ve been collecting things, and you just have one missing. I’ve been collecting American States. – That is, I’ve been collecting American States from which people have visited my website. I’ve got 49 now, since someone finally visited my website from West Virginia (or 51 if you include the District of Columbia and that curious state “Not Set”), but I’ve still got one missing. I’m sure you can guess which. I’ll leave the answer till the end though – so you can have some time to think.
Adjusting, as best I can, for the massive distorting factor of the same people constantly visiting the blog, these are the top ten states:
- New York
Adjusting for the further massive distorting factor of population, these are the top ten states:
- District of Columbia
- New York
- South Dakota
I shan’t put in the paltry figures. (Every other website always has better figures than mine!). And I’ve no idea what any of that means; but the second list I find more satisfyingly esoteric (perhaps it just reveals which states keep switching people’s IP addresses). And it’s clearly more interesting than writing about books.
The missing state is, of course, Alaska. – Anybody fancy a trip up there?
The US and the UK are constantly exchanging the lead too for monthly visits. The US today are one visit ahead. Very exciting.
