I didn’t really have any expectations for this blog except to discuss my experiences and vent my frustrations. As of today, Beth’s Adventures with Carcinoid Cancer has had 10,000 visitors! I’m quite happy that the blog reached that milestone so soon and exactly at the one year mark. Over the past year, I’ve met some nice people and learned a lot from my writing experience. Not being a super savvy computer user, I’m not sure if the 10,000 visitors are distinct users or could be 1,000 different people visiting 10 times each.

The Difference between a Flush and a Hot Flash
Bitter Pill and Gorillas in CT Scans
I think a lot of people get here by asking a search engine “what is or how do you tell the difference between a flush and a hot flash?” Then my blog comes up.
When looking at where the visitors come from, it is very US focused but many visitors have also come from overseas. Just yesterday there were 20 visitors from Jordan! I wonder how that group found this blog on the same day – perhaps they were together in a class? The table below shows the top 10 countries visitors came from:
I also get information on what operating system and browser the visitors are using and it looks like this:
Other information that I can’t get from online users are facts such as whether more women than men are viewing my blog, their average age or the type of cancer they have. I’m guessing that more women than men are viewing it because of the popularity of the flushing vs. hot flash post. It could also be because that post mentions “Fifty Shades of Grey”.
Overall, I’m in a better place now than I was last year at this time and I think this blog has helped me get there. On to year two!
