Happy new year 2019

Dear readers,

I wish you a happy new year for 2019.

In 2018 I published 24 articles on this blog (34 in 2017 and 49 in 2016 and 51 in 2015). It is, again, decreasing.


The number of readers in 2018 is also decreasing by 20% compared to 2017.

A large part of readers came from the USA, France is 2nd, followed by Germany.

The first cities from USA are from California: San Francisco, San Diego, Los Angeles, San Jose, Palo Alto, etc. The second state from USA is Oregon with 94% of Oregon readers from Boardman. Is there a high smart card activity in Bordman/Oregon?

In France 33% of readers comes from Paris. The distribution is more homogeneous in Germany.
