After breaching the 1 million pageviews mark in early October 2016, my blog has been getting about 500 views a day in October-November (vs. around 340 a day in previous months), mainly from US readers. By December though, this blog was attracting around 800 views a day. And mainly from Russian readers.
And I'm not even writing about Russia, or Crimea or Ukraine. I think they are ordinary folks there reading about Asia and the Philippines.
Thank you readers from Russia, and America, Philippines, Germany, other countries.
