I have been writing Omega Alpha | Open Access for 7 months now, starting at the end of November 2011. On February 25, 2012, WordPress.com launched an enhancement to blog statistics called “Views by Country.” This feature displays both a country listing (with country flag) and a map showing the views distribution for a given time period. Because it is today exactly four months since this feature was launched, I thought it would be interesting to take a cumulative look at my stats using this view. (This feature is unable to retrieve statistics prior to February 25.)
It is fascinating and actually a little amazing to see how far and wide (if not yet deep) my blog has been accessed in just four months time. Although I have had only about 5,000 views in this period (I have had just over 6,500 views over the life of the blog), I count 92 countries where at least one view has been logged! Of this total, 45 countries have had 10 or more views logged.
Wow! This is pretty remarkable. I want to thank you for your interest in Omega Alpha | Open Access. I hope you are finding the stories informative and encouraging toward the promotion of open access publishing in Religion and Theology. I welcome your comments.
