I noticed a spike in my blog traffic after my post on our new shower, it turns out I’m getting a lot of hits from British DIY sites and home-improvement message boards… I don’t know what that says about plumbing in the UK.
Google Analytics shows where these hits are coming from, and I recognize London, Manchester, Cambridge, Reading and so forth. Then there were a bunch of unknown-to-me, but believable place names, like Dunstable or Petersfield. But Worksop? Kirkintillock? Wombwell? Huyton-With-Roby? Leyton Buzzard? Are these actual places or just clever names for proxy servers?
The information’s going to come in pretty handy the next time someone
asks me if tells me I’m British.
“Yes,” I’ll say, “I’m from Leyton Buzzard. Where’s the tea?”
If I knew I was going to be famous, I’d worn something nicer than Stick’s sweater.
