Let us say that you acquired 130 views for the day and out of that 130, 99% were from foreign countries and 1% was from your own country; how would you feel about that? You might come to the conclusion that your own native people are not too appreciative of what you have to offer via your blog and only foreigners are truly appreciative of your blog.
When it comes to the number of people who view my blog, people from The United States and the United Kingdom make up the majority.
I am somewhat baffled as to why I only have a small handful of views from my own country — Trinidad and Tobago.
I am also fortunate to have a small number of views from my neighbouring Caribbean country — Barbados.
The other remaining views are scattered among people from various countries around the world.
The reality of the situation is: most of my local friends are interested in Facebook; they spend their precious moments there chatting away with their local, regional and international friends.
It is quite rare to have someone blogging from Trinidad and Tobago; especially one who posts on WordPress. Unfortunately, my fellow countrymen are not too enthusiastic about blogging.
Also, there are a large number of people in The United States who are members of the WordPress community and the same thing goes for those who live in the United Kingdom.
Although I am grateful for a fairly large number of views on a regular basis, a part of me feels as though I failed at making my voice heard among my fellow citizens.
Are you in a similar position as myself? Are the majority of views from countries other than your own?
I believe that everyone has their own market; a style of blogging that may only be appreciated by a certain group of people; however, in my case, I seem to have an international appeal instead of a local or regional appeal in the blogosphere.
