no books, but figures (3000)

On May 7, 2014 I reached 1000 views.
On July 31, 2014 I reached 2000 views.
This morning I reached three thousand views.

“semper aliquid novi africam adferre” was started somewhere in September 2013. I copied my bookcomments from another blog I used, so you will find some with an older date.


Up till now most of my views come from The Netherlands (820), the United States (766) come in second place, South Africa (239) in third place, United Kingdom (including Scotland) (217) in fourth and Belgium (128) in fifth place. 

When you look at my ‘flagcounter’ (added on 24th of April 2014) you see the United States are in the lead, with 45% of the visitors from 66 countries coming from the USA. Maybe there is a great longing for African literature in this country, or there are many people with a account or … . South Africa is the first African country on the flag list.

With 1000 views I had 32 followers.
With 2000 views I had 119 followers.
With 3000 views I have 165  followers.

The day with the best score of views was the second day of September 2014 with 71 views (and 34 visitors)

The best scoring week was the week starting with September 1, 2014 with 242 views (and 145 visitors)

August 2014 was the best scoring month, with 654 views (and 361 visitors).

It is no surprise that ‘Home Page / Archives’ and ‘Who I am’ attracted most visitors, but for a single post it was and still is my post on “Ontdekking aan de Awash”, a book for young people.  In second place is a new post: New wave of African writers with an internationalist bend.  In total I have published 422 posts (including this one).

I will skip the moment of 4000 views and move on to 5000 views and then I will let you know again how my weblog is fairing.

Thanks for joining me in this discovery of books from and about Africa.
