160 People From Turkey Reading My Blog?

In the past few days I have been getting much blog traffic from Turkey, and I wonder if anyone else has too-

This blog has perhaps 8 regular readers, though visitors do stumble in on it when they are looking for information on Tennessee lizards or Harpeth River State Park and Hidden Lake.

I think the Turks, forbidden to use Twitter and Facebook, are looking for ways to bypass what their government is blocking by going in through backdoors.

My hands would fall off before I would use Twitter or Facebook, though a few years back my sister talked me into joining. I used it two weeks, then got the hell out.

I do not think my blog links to either of these sites.

How very odd. I started to use Google Analytics a few weeks ago, and noticed that my blog was getting visitors from Turkey too. Next but one book to be reviewed probably will be Turkish, although it wasn't intended to reflect my followers!

Haven't noticed this, but now I am curious

Perhaps your last post, "I Gave My Cat A Bath" made folks from Turkey give your blog a look, it might mean something else there!
(I don't mean any offence by that, I just notice that I sometimes have lots of readers from one country and like you, I wonder why!)
