[Blog] Visitors change

I noticed a huge change in my viewership. For reasons unknown I have suddenly astonishingly high viewer counts from France and New Zealand.

I'd like to ask readers from those countries to tell me WTF happened, for I am really curious. 
And yes, I  would also understand a French explanation if it was in simple French. :-)

Both comments and e-mail would be fine.

(The drop in UK viewers relative to Germany and US may be due to the much-reduced activity of the Think Defence blog.)

P.S.: Since we're at blog topics just a quick message to Indian spammers:
This is not a good site to advertise for escorts in Mumbai, Hyderabad or whatever in comments.
is how escorts look in the context of this blog!



  1. I discover your site via French colonel Michel GOYA Blog "la voie de l'epée" .i didnt notice any inusual activity on your site , just good article , but Du to recent attack on a "military patrol" in Paris Orly airport , there was a spike in consultation "la voie de l epée" who could have ricochet on your site.

  2. Wuhuu! Finland mentioned!

    1. That's you, checking in 9 times a day. ;-)

  3. http://lavoiedelepee.blogspot.fr

    Your in his "followed blogs" (blogs suivis) list. You have been added juste two month, or so, ago.

    That why.

  4. I'm a long time visitor from New Zealand. I can't point to anything locally which could have driven up visitor numbers. Maybe the NZDF is using your blog as a reference in their staff courses :P.

  5. Shared a couple of links on reddit.com/r/europe/ on pertinent topics, but I can't imagine it made a big dent.
