So I don't know how many of you are Blogger users, but Google just updated their Blogger site, and there are all sorts of fun new tools out there for free! I can now see where all my readers are from (just countries--don't worry) and which of my posts are most popular and how my readers got to my site. It's been pretty neat to look at. Here's a couple fun things I discovered about my blog and my readers!

*The most popular posts on my blog are Morning Tailgate Menu, R2D2 Cake and Grilled Sweet Potato Chips--interesting mix of topics there!
*Most readers are getting to my blog by seaching for various combinations of those words above, but quite a few are coming because of links on other blogs. So thank you to other bloggers who have included me on your site. : )
*The majority of my readers are in the USA, but I also have readers in China, Russia, India, Australia, Germany, the Netherlands, Canada, and the UK! And shockingly enough, Russia(!) leads the pack of my international readers. Wow!

I really am blown away by all of this. I started this blog as a place to store and categorize my recipes and to also have an easy way of sharing my recipes with friends. I really had no idea my blog had reached so many different people. If you're visiting my blog, leave a comment if you'd like. I love getting comments from readers.And thanks for reading . . .

Bon Appetit!

I do love that Google Analytics is now included in blogger, but I haven't figured out how to make it automatically go to Drafts when I click Post. Right now it goes to All which is somewhat annoying.
