I have been surprised by the volume of traffic that this blog is getting (about 8x the amount I thought it did). I have blocked my home computer from counting toward the number of unique visitors (before blocking myself, I counted as one person every day, but I won't any more). I am thrilled that so many people are coming across this thing.
Not everyone who's been checking it out even knows me. My counter tells me what the "referring link" was for visitors. I have about 5 people who got here from a Google search on "grandeur of the seas." Somebody else on "non-mercator globes." I've had people in a few different countries: Trinidad & Tobago, Sweden, UK, and of course USA.
