I mentioned a couple of post ago about setting up a site meter. Although there is a thing out there called site meter, I actually use Stat Counter. Sorry, got the names a little confused. Not sure the difference but so far I have been happy with Stat Counter.
If you want to set one up for you blog, all you have to do is go to HERE and click on the register tab. It only takes a minute to set up an account and then you are off.
Once you get signed on, you can click on the graph icon to pull up your real-time stats and visitor reports. This will show you not only a map of where people are checking you out from, but it will also show if they are new/unique to your blog, if they are returning visitors, or if they came to you through someone else's blog. It is really neat, especially when you see you get a hit from somewhere really cool like Australia & Sweden! Come on my Italian/Swiss/ British friends...where you at?
Anyway, thank you Emily for reminding me that I never posted how to set this up! Hope this helps yall out there that want to get started checking out your stats. Enjoy and let us know where all you are getting hits from!
