World-Wide Reach

I set up this blog to be served from my Raspberry Pi 400, as a protest against Big Tech and social media, and also to show what’s possible with a fast Internet connection and a $100 PC. I still need to write a post listing all of the setup steps, but in this post I wanted to share a few stats, courtesy of GoAccess.

Every day I get between 400 and 500 unique visitors, but what really excites me is the international reach. It’s humbling to know that I’m being read in:

  • United States
  • Canada
  • China
  • Indonesia
  • Russia
  • Ukraine
  • Spain
  • Kazakhstan
  • Hong Kong
  • Bulgaria
  • Great Britain
  • Colombia
  • Netherlands
  • Mongolia
  • Germany
  • Finland
  • Poland
  • France
  • India
  • Iran
  • Sweden
  • Vietnam
  • Czechia
  • Belgium
  • Romania
  • Switzerland
  • Serbia
  • Estonia
  • Latvia
  • Lithuania
  • Austria
  • Belarus
  • Australia
  • Ireland
  • South Korea
  • Japan
  • Portugal
  • Italy
  • South Africa
  • Chile
  • Uzbekistan
  • Turkey
  • Panama
  • Monaco

What I find fascinating is that I may only have one or two readers in most of those countries, so my reach is fully world-wide, despite still being very small numerically. That country list is just from the past 18 hours! There’s no tracking code on my site, so the country names are all from reverse IP lookup from the Apache access logs.

If you’re under 30 years old, you know intuitively that the world has now been connected in this way, but I still remember how excited I felt back in the early 1990s when I made my first FTP connection to and successfully downloaded some software from Finland, from my home in Los Angeles, without paying any long-distance fees. I knew instantly that the world had changed. I didn’t anticipate how noisy and chaotic social media would become.

If we are now in the middle of a major spiritual awakening, as I now believe, then that means we’re likely to continue using Internet services to find each other to communicate, in order to perhaps also connect on the astral plane. We’re definitely going through a technological consciousness “leveling up”.

Thank you for reading this humble blog, and I’m sending my love to all of you.
