Blog reflection and visitor geography

Usually, posts in this blog are about sailing adventures, personal challenges, "learning opportunities", and pretty pictures of boats and scenery. Seldom do I indulge in reflections about the blog itself; it somehow seems silly to me to go too far into audience analysis, counting up visits, and paying much attention to all of that. Occasionally, I'll look at the log to get an idea of where blog visitors are form and what sort of information they might be looking for, but at other times I'll completely pass over that sort of information.

Just for fun, and perhaps as a reference point, here's a breakdown of where most of the last 100 visitors originated (the total is fewer than 100 because of some unrecorded origin points):
