And Who Reads THIS BLOG?

Yesterday on my other blog Shiloh Musings I asked that question.
Shiloh Musings: Who Reads This Blog?
I got some interesting replies, so this morning when I was glancing at the statistics for this blog, "A Jewish Grandmother," I noticed how many non-English speaking countries are among my top fans and how, again, blog readers Great Britain don't seem to like my blogs.

Here's the week's numbers:

And here's the month's numbers:

I find this very interesting. And it's rather incomprehensible to think that I have more readers in South Korea than in Britain or even Canada? Can anyone explain this for me? What do you think? For those of you in those non-English speaking countries, how did you get to my blog? What do you enjoy about it? Actually I'd like to ask all of you readers those questions:

  • How did you get to my blog? 
  • What do you enjoy about it?
Thanks, I'd really appreciate feedback.

Batya,
I don't know how blogger gathers its stats, but when you have viewers from Russia or the Ukraine, very often these are false bots. In Google Anayltics there are filters for taking these out. I'm sure you do have a real readership in the U.S. - so congrats on that.

(who has been reading your blog since 2008? you encouraged me to write more recipes way back then).

I am no expert in these things. Yes we made a community of Jewish bloggers. Did you see the new HH?
