An International Audience

I never would have guessed a few months ago when I started this little blog about our team that it would ever receive as much traffic as it does. What really has taken me by surprise is who is actually reading it. Last week I installed a counter on the site that also tracks where the readers are located, either in the United States or around the world. I figured that most of the traffic was coming from within the team, after all, we are so new to Chicago I figured no one knew who we were yet. Well it turns out that we have quite an international audience. Sure most of the hits are coming from the Chicago area, but I was shocked to see a steady stream of traffic from overseas as well. Just in the last week we have had visitors from Israel, Turkey, Canada and Belgium. Our site also gets viewed from quite a few number of states as well. In fact, just today there were hits from Kentucky, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and California. In the last few weeks I have met people at races that mention that they read the blog, and to be completely honest I am really quite flattered that someone would take the time to read what I have to say.

I know this has nothing to do with us racing, but I thought it was rather interesting. I guess I am just easily amused.
