A rather odd circumstance--checking the stats for this blog just yesterday, I discover that I now have a huge audience in Russia. I have over one hundred times more readers in Russia than I do from Canada, even though Canadian affairs are the usual focus of the blog.
Canada is only my fifth largest audience. Immediately following Russia, although at only one tenth the audience, is --- Mauritius. That, too, is pretty remarkable, considering the total population of Mauritius.
It goes without saying, I suppose, that I have done nothing to promote this blog in Russia or Mauritius.
In fact, I have done nothing to promote this blog anywhere.
