I like to check this blog's stats on Blogger every once in awhile. On good days, I've recently hit a bit more than 1,000 pageviews a day. That won't get BoingBoing or Dangerous Minds looking over their shoulders, but I think it does say something about the persistent interest in Robert Anton Wilson's writings.
I've assumed all along that most of my traffic comes from the United States and the United Kingdom, but if Google's traffic tallies are to be believed, the reality is more interesting than that. According to Google, here is the ranking today for my sources of traffic:
1. United States
4. United Kingdom
Now, I know that there are RAW readers around the world -- check out the folks who participate in Dan Clore's Facebook group for RAW fans. I've been emailing back and forth this week with an Italian editor, Fausto Marcon. But am I really getting that many readers in China, or the Ukraine? If you're reading this blog from someplace more exotic than Ohio, please say hello in the comments. Or say hello, anyway.

Who reads this thing?

To be honest, my proxy service cycles through about half those countries. Anyone else here using a proxy that roams?
I exchanged email with a couple of Blogger tech geeks and they thought all (or most) of my Ukrainian hits were referrer spam.
I don't use a roaming proxy but I'll bet a lot of Chinese do. Does spam to this site that's blocked by the server get counted as a hit?
Reading from Bangkok...
@fyreflye Hope you're not asking me! Obviously, Gary and Michael know more about this stuff than I do.
Reading from Tokyo
Well, the Poland hits may not be completely fake ;). Hello, or "Cześć", from Poland! Great to read your blog!
Like the blog. But reading it from boring old Ohio. :)
It's another set of stories, but when the poor thing FINALLY came out, I ended up reading parts 1 and 2 in Singapore and 3 in Jerusalem . . .
But if RAW has fans in China, that's some of the best news I've gotten all year.
