I admit: It would be somewhat disappointing to write articles, only to realize that nobody reads it. WordPress is my favorite blogging platform as I get detailed statistical data who in the world is reading MCUonEclipse:
According to the statistics, most reads on MCUonEclipse come from the USA, followed by Germany, Brazil, Mexico, United Kingdom, Italy, India, France, Canada, Spain and Poland.
❗ Don’t worry: this is only statistical data, and has no other information.
Of course this is influenced by the fact that this blog is in English, and is about software and microcontroller. It tells me that the subject is not much of interest in Central Africa, which probably reflects access to internet and availability of tech companies in this area? No surprise: the topic of Embedded System is very popular in the USA and Europe. And I realized that it is on the rise in Central and South America and Asia. China is not listed high probably because of the language barrier, and I know that WordPress sites are blocked over there. But I’m sure there are a lot of activities in China too and always numbers are up for interpretation.
The MCUonEclipse journey started Feb 1st 2012. It started 1k monthly reads and is now at 80k every month :-). And when I looked today at the numbers, I realized that it reached 1 million reads since the beginning :-). If you read this: thank you all! I say ‘thanks’ to you all, because it is an appreciation and encourages me to continue doing it.
I’m blogging because I want to give back something to the world-wide web: the web is such a great source of information, and I’m counting on all the excellent information out there put together by users in their free time to help others. So I want to give back and help others too. And it helps me too, as a professor I know that you learn things as well with writing it down :-). And sometimes I need to google my own articles to find my own tips&tricks ;-).
Happy Reading 🙂
