I love WordPress and the stats it provides. If I ever thought I understood what made this blog tick, that was all dispelled by looking at the stats. Maybe now I’ve reached over 25,000 views I should illustrate… oh oh and my blog is 1 year old tomorrow! Who’d have thunk it?
Top 10 search terms:
|ott lepland gay||617|
|kurt calleja gay||520|
|eurovision 2012 final results||407|
|eurovision 2012 final list||274|
|eurovision 2012 semi final 1 results||171|
|ott lepland penis||163|

Perhaps not surprisingly, Eurovision dominates the party … well in a manner of speaking. Now I don’t want to stereotype the Eurovision demographic, I know a lot of people think of it like the gay music Olympics. Well those gays haven’t done much to dispel that, speculating on this year’s Estonian, Maltese and Norwegian performers’ sexualities. Can’t really blame them for wishful thinking, but I’m afraid I don’t have the answers… (well maybe Tooji is)
Maybe I should do more to find out, since a fair chunk of my traffic seems devoted to poor Ott Lepland and his penis. Perhaps I shouldn’t have posted that photo. C’est la vie.
Very surprised to see Tyler James in the mix too, runner-up (I think?) on UK’s The Voice. He had a small music career in 2004-ish, but I guess there’s not too much written about him since he keeps popping up in searches. Chalk that one up to me being in the right place at the right time.
Further down the list, the Lithuanian Eurovision gets queried on his gayness, that damn Swiss Roll Bowl Cake refuses to die, and Ott Lepland’s genitalia get a surprising array of search terms. Only the classiest viewers read my blog!
Top 10 countries
No huge surprises there, though I guess it’s a surprise it’s so UK-centric. I don’t think my posts are especially geared towards Brits, but who knows.
Obviously my massive amounts of Eurovision posts draw a lot of different countries into my blog, perhaps it’s more surprising to see what’s just outside the top 10. The next four in order are Lithuania, Malta, Estonia and Serbia, not exactly massive countries.
I love seeing random small countries popping up on these stats, and I’ve been amazed to find hits from Gibraltar, Luxembourg, Nepal, Mariana Islands and … China. OK China doesn’t sound that surprising, but I’m pretty sure WordPress is banned there, and so I’m lucky to have that single hit from there I think!
Anyway, bottom line is that I love you guys, wherever you are from, and no matter whose penis you came looking for. Leave a comment if you’re reading this from somewhere far away!
Recommend this blog to any Greenlanders, Kazakhstanis or Mongolians you know, I want to fill in this map! Maybe I need to post more about seals or yurts or something…
