Hello, out there: Fun with statistics -- with a bow to the photographers

It was four months ago that this online literary salon first saw the light of day. In that time, there have been three banner photographs, all of which are displayed in this new post as a way of reminding you to check out the galleries and the photographers' own websites. 

This morning I checked out who’s been visiting www.lindaleith.com, and here are the top 30 of 41 locations during the month of June.

Most of you -- 40.2% -- are in Canada, and what surprises me is that there are 27.12% US locations. Not sure why there are so many 19.63% identified only as “unresolved/unknown.”Can anyone explain that?

Am amazed to discover there are people, or at least computers, in 40 countries checking out this salon, and can even correlate these visitors with what I posted on any given day. Peak time to read salon posts is lunchtime, between 12 and 2 p.m. And the number of visitors spiked on June 13th when I announced the publishing company.

Won't provide all the stats, but here the international list, in order:

40.20% Canada
