Readers and contributors might be interested to see how this wee blog is read globally. We’re not in the same league as Wings over Scotland but averaging around 2 000 reads per day; probably less discrete visitors. However, I can’t help looking at the map and the list below now and then. I get figures for each post too but not linked to the countries where they were read. World conquest in a very faded yellow and readers from the most unusual of places? I guess they’re mainly ex-pats living there but still interested in Scottish politics though some might be locals interested in autonomy for the regions they live in. I like to think so. Anyhow, I hope this does not inhibit contributors but, rather, inspires them. Watch your spelling and grammar though! They’re watching us.
