Random blog fact

This is the visitor summary for my blog this week. I am showing it to you because I can't believe how many blog visitors are from Russia... actually more than from Canada!

Who knew there were that many Russian quilters wanting to read about Canadian quilting?!?

I think the Russian quilters are having a 'rebound' of quilting, like we American's did, after our bicentennial. Freedom and the internet help creativity flow, like never before.

Mary said...

That is wild! I knew you were poplular. Word of mouth has made your BLOG Internationally known.

Shari said...

That's just too cool! Love your blog - and apparently lots of other folks around the world do too!

Bonnie said...

Way to go! You consistently have interesting blogs... why not a following from Russia?

Janet O. said...

Made me have to go check stats for my blog for the week, out of curiosity. My #2 country was Germany--even above Canada. That isn't normal--at least I don't think so.
That is quite a following from Russia for you!

How do you describe yourself as a quilter? A Canadian quilter? A hand-quilter? Something else? I suspect all those Russians (and us Americans) follow your blog because we love your work and the thoughts you share on quilting and life, not necessarily because you are a Canadian quilter.

Isn't the Internet amazing?

When I seem to have a lot of traffic from certain places in the eastern hemisphere and am able to check out some of that traffic, it often comes from questionable sites rather than from quilters. That said, I hope your traffic is from quiters.

You just make it obvious. Patchwork is international and they love your blog.

Lesley said...

Great to see the quilters from across the world who are inspired by your work!

margaret said...

still unable to post a comment without using the reply button. You certainly are world wide and so many visitors that is because your blog is so interesting and informative as well as sharing lots of lovely things

Kristin said...

I love as thinking the same thing! It could be bots 😥

Dasha said...

There are a lot of quilters in Russia - I have visited quite a few bloggers there. But to be honest I think the vast majority of visits from Russia are spammers or robots.

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

Like Janet, I had to go check mine out of curiosity. Germany was #2, Russia #3 and then Canada was #4. Hopefully our Russian visitors are quilters. ;-)

how funny I just looked mine up and #2 is Ukraine... how odd

I've noticed that as well. Every now and then it's an actual quilter though! Quilting reaches far :)
