20,000 Views

What began as merely a plan to post a CV online and occasional announcements of my activities and thoughts on music and current affairs seems to have matured by reaching a significant milestone today: 20,000 page views.

The following chart indicates the national origin of the most active readers of this blog:

United States....
9,920
United Kingdom....
776
Germany....
735
Netherlands....
699
Canada....
640
Australia....
541
Japan....
332
Russia....
261
Italy....
185
Ukraine....
178

About half the readers are from the USA, and half from other nations. Although they did not quite manage to make this list, there are many readers from Nordic nations, New Zealand, and China as well, and some very new readers from Africa and Latin America.

It may be worthwhile to spend some energy on reformatting and offer more frequent posts to this rather simple-looking blog, but for now I really must focus on finishing writing for a book that is under contract and has been delayed for too long. I will plan to write more for Sociomusicology in the summertime, when the other projects are complete.

Today I am in London, where I gave a lecture at University of London Institute of Education, and tonight I am off to the British Forum for Ethnomusicology conference to chair a symposium on historical research methods, and then to Africa (Accra, Ghana) from Saturday onward to give a presentation for a conference on online music learning and to evaluate an international music camp project. Then, finally back to Mississippi to do nothing but write a book for two solid months before moving to Norway to work with outstanding new colleagues there.
