“What brings you here?”
It’s a common question.
Having a blog means you have access to all kinds of cool stats. I like to explore them every once in a while, as I have my morning coffee. Gets the grey cells moving.
I’ve been writing this blog for over three years now – covering everything from green home building, to mental break downs, to gardening and saving distressed animals. Without a doubt though my most popular post is a simple “how-to” article I published quite a while ago: the installation of a shower curtain rod in the upstairs bathroom.
I get a hit on that post every day from somewhere in the world. After forty years of living, solving that little problem of how in the heck do you mount a shower curtain rod on a sloping ceiling, is my contribution to our modern society.
Keep in mind though, my meager little blog only gets about forty visitors a day (twice though what it was just four months ago). A real blog gets hundreds and thousands of daily visitors. But I enjoy writing so it’s worth it even if I just get one visitor a day.
I always imagined I’d accomplish something more earth shattering or sexy. But I suppose writing a popular article on a shower curtain rod is achievement enough for all the DIYers around the globe who were scratching their head, googling “L-Shaped shower curtain rod installation” or “sloped ceiling shower curtain rod”.
Somewhat unrelated it’s always cool to see where in the world readers of the blog live. Not surprising most are in North America and english speaking countries. What I did find interesting is that only one hit from China, the most populous country in the world. There’s something to be said for internet freedom.
I bet there are a lot of people over there scratching their head, L-shaped shower curtain rod in hand, staring up at a sloped ceiling in their bathroom.
