Two Hundred Thousand Hits - Our Story To Date !

200 000 Hits !!! 

Delighted  to say that  my Crieff Strathearn Perthshire Local History  has now topped 200 000 hits with over 180 Blogs  in 6 years and 3 months .Having written  some four  books on local history , I was determined to have a crack at “ Blogging “ .  It was back in February 2012 that I launched it not realising just how popular the history and heritage of the Strath  was! The first  four years saw the number of hits  climb  to 84 000 but just over  two years later it has  soared to 200 000 . I thought  somewhat naively that I was  catering  for the “ home “ market but indeed  the stats  shown below indicate that nearly half the hits  come from  outside the UK .

The balance of  10.75 % is spread out over a wide selection of countries and continents ranging from Finland in the North of Europe  to Vanuatu in the  South Pacific ! What is perhaps  surprising is the number of persons  from Russia and the Ukraine  who follow  the stories of local antiquity !
