A big thank-you for stopping by!

Hey all,

Just want to say a big thank you for visiting our site! We hit a few milestones in the last week and we’re stoked that so many seem so interested in what we are up to. These numbers are all firsts for OutThereSomewhere.ca:

  • 100 posts
  • 1500 visits (in last 30 days)
  • 5500 pageviews (in last 30 days)

That spike on the graph above represents 98 visits on a single day, which is the highest we’ve seen (June 19, 2010). The right-most point on the graph represents 47 visits, which is about our daily average. We’ve had visitors from 59 countries in the past 30 days, and from 89 countries during the blog’s lifetime. We’ve had over 2,000 unique visitors since the blog’s debut in January.

Here are our visitor stats over the past six months:

The steady climb of visitors is very encouraging to us.

These aren’t exactly mega stats, compared to many websites, but for a modest little travel blog they’re pretty good. It seems that about 50 of you visit our site every day, and we thank you all for doing so. It’s been a very nice added dimension to our trip to be able to share it with you, and your comments always put a smile on our faces. Thanks for visiting!

Chris (and Laura)

p.s. – I’ve recently updated the maps on the “Where” page, and also added an “Archives” page to the links at the top.

p.p.s – If you’re getting a red boxed message at the top of the page every time you stop by and the blog looks bad, then you really, really, need to stop using Internet Explorer 6. You can update to Internet Explorer 8 here, try Firefox here, or maybe give Google’s Chrome browser a shot here. All of them will let you see www.OutThereSomewhere.ca the way God intended you to see it and offer you a much better Internet experience overall.

  1. Page statistics are so addictive. I’d have taken a stats or maybe a comp sci class if I didn’t hate math and programming so much. -T

  2. Wow…very impresive. And here I just enjoy hearing about what you two are doing and being able to also see the trip come together with all your photos. Carry on guys you are giving us all a trip of a lifetime.

    Love You…Mom
