Who are you? 15


And where are you?

I get a report each week of how many people read my blog. Or at least click on the page. I’ve had this blog over two years now and I’ve only JUST noticed that the report I receive also has a link to a website where I can get things like maps of where my readers are coming from.

The red dot is where I am. The green dots are where the last 10 visitors came from. And the white dots are the 50 previous visitors. Shelley Munro – I’m assuming that’s you down there in New Zealand. But I also had someone from Australia drop by.

I’m betting a couple of those green dots are my critique partners in Texas and Louisiana. There’s one out in Seattle way – Lauren Dane perhaps visiting during Snippet Saturday. And several in California – RJ Lebeau, a new friend from Twitter and fellow Romance Diva perhaps? Another out in Nova Scotia – Julia of “A Piece of my Mind” blog, is that you? And someone up close to Hudson Bay – Churchill, Manitoba maybe? East coast, west coast, central US and Canada. It’s so cool to see where you’re from.

There is someone from England, another from Scotland (Edinburgh?) and several visitors from the Netherlands. Another visitor came from the southern tip of Sardegna (in the island in the middle of the Mediterranean) Is that what we in North America call Sardinia? I’ve even had a visitor from Egypt.

My website also provides stats, just not in map form. I’ve had visitors from Canada and the States, naturally, and from Australia and New Zealand. But also from Russia, Poland, Singapore, South Africa, the United Arab Emirates, Germany, the Netherlands again, Switzerland, Finland, Belgium, Brazil (Yay, South America is finally represented!), Mexico, India, Denmark, Norway, Portugal, Costa Rica, Turkey, Ireland, Taiwain and the Seychelles.

So … now I know where you’re from … I’d love to have you leave a comment and tell me who you are and where, and how you found me.

    Hi Leah,
    I love these maps too! I am from Northern Indiana so I should be real close the the bottom tip of Lake Michigan.
    I first heard about you from your interview on Hooked on Romance. Haven’t read either of the books profiled there, but am saving up for a purchase (hopefully in the near future).

  • R.J. Lebeau

    Yes, I think I’m that dot all by its little self down in the SW corner of the US. That’s cool!

  • Kathleen O

    I am that little dot in southern Ontario and I found you on the Classic Romance Revival site.

  • Lori

    I’m probably the dot close to the central coast of Cali. I found you cause you found me first, LOL!

  • Misti

    Hi Leah,
    I’m most likely the dot closest to the coast in Texas. I found you through Snippet Saturday on Lauren’s blog and am planning on trying your books soon!

    Hi, Booklover – glad to hear people were reading my posts over on Hooked on Romance. Welcome!

    JK, Yes, I know where you are. RJ – feelin’ lonely down there in San Diego way? I was there years ago, it was pretty.

    Kathleen – LOL about finding me on the Classic Romance Revival site since I write very “unclassical” romance.

    Lori – that’s right, I found you through your blog, didn’t I? (I really enjoy reading the blog of someone else who is the only female in a houseful of men. But your guys seem a lot more funny than mine.)

    Misti – Welcome to my blog. Snippet Saturday is fun, it’s nice to know readers are enjoying it too.

    Natasha – another Canuck. One of these days we’ll have to meet up.

  • Natasha

    We should! It would be a lot easier if I drove though! lol (hopefully this summer I might actually practice!!)

  • Leah Braemel

    Would be easier if you lived THIS side of Toronto. TO traffic scares me. You’ll just have to move!

  • HockeyVampiress

    I am in SW Ontario. Petrolia to be exact. About an hour from London and half hour from Pt Huron MI I can’t remember where I stumbled upon Leah…. but friends on twitter….as hockeyvampiress

  • Leah Braemel

    Hockey Vampiress – I think we met on Twitter. And I’ve been through Petrolia. First time I’d realized why it had the name it did – never realized Ontario had oil/gas wells.

  • C R Ward

    I’m another dot in Southern Ontario, Cobourg, to be precise. πŸ™‚

    I found you through the link on the free story you wrote for the Samhain website at Christmas.

  • Leah Braemel

    CR – welcome! Cobourg’s not showing up on the map – I’m thinking perhaps your ISP is coming through as Peterborough. (But I added Cobourg to the list to correct that error) πŸ˜‰

    Same with Hockey Vampiress – no Petrolia showing up. Nor is the entry from Hudson Bay appearing. There are some entries just saying “Canada” or “United States” because they’re too far from a large center perhaps?

  • Marley Delarose, Author

    And here’s one of your CPs checking in. No idea where Robeline, LA is probably near NO but I’m in central – Monterey, LA.

    Interesting stats.
