Update - Where in the World are our Readers?
A few weeks ago, we posted a story about a chance meeting with one of our readers in an aiport. We asked you to tell us where you are from and how you learned about this blog. Today, we'd like to thank everyone who submitted comments and give you a little summary of what we learned!
We received comments from 22 readers! While most of the comments were posted by readers residing in the United States, we also heard from readers in Italy, Canada, Ireland, Scotland, England, and South Africa. Some readers learned about the blog by doing an internet search, some received recommendations from friends, family members, or lactation consultants, and a few couldn't remember how they stumbled across the blog. (To those of you who can't remember, don't worry, sometimes I can't remember what I had for breakfast!)
We were so excited by all of your responses (this post received the most comments of anything we've posted so far!) that we did a little more research using Google's website analytics feature and got even more information about where are readers are from! Since our first post in June 2009, we've had 29,867 readers from 6 continents (do you know anyone in Antartica? If so, spread the word!), 161 countries/territories, and 6,551 cities worldwide!
So, once again, we'd like to express our gratitude to all of our readers. For 4 moms in a small town in California, knowing that our work is reaching so many parents from so many different places brings us great joy! We hope that the information we provide on this site is useful and look forward to hearing from you in the future!
