The counter in the right margin is provided by StatCounter.com and it provides me with some interesting information about my visitors. One of the useful features is “Came from” which gives the address of the website that directed the visitor to this site. And this tells me who has me “blogrolled” on their site.
It is gratifying to find your site listed on other blogs because it means that the person reading it liked it enough to add the link. StatCounter also tells me who are the “best” referrers, so that I know where to send the champagne next Christmas. :-)
I also discovered that my chum The Shrink has just started blogging from the ninth circle of Hell, which seems an exotic residence even for a psychiatrist. No wonder they are allowed to retire at 55! And most mysteriously of all, I am listed on a Nordic blog “Lääne tänaval” that is incomprehensible to me. I can't even work out what language it is written in, though I think it may be Estonian. In any case, I extend a warm welcome to all my visitors, from Eastern Europe and everywhere else. :-)
