Happy Eighth Birthday to I’m Turning 60…!! by Margaret Ullrich




Happy Birthday to I’m Turning 60…!!

I really want to thank you for visiting during the years, whether you have dropped in on a daily, weekly or occasional basis during the past eight years. 
I especially want to thank those who have commented. I really appreciate it when you tell me that your family enjoyed a recipe, or when you ask if I have a recipe for a particular dish.
The past eight years have been full of changes - some good, some bad - and I want to thank you for sharing them with me.

I’m Turning 60… continues to be more popular than its older ’sibling’ 
Winnipeg is Better Than Chocolate! 
Really!!
I’m Turning 60… - with 1002 posts - has had an amazing 544,689 visitors since July, 2010, when Blogger started keeping track of both blogs.
That's more visitors than its ‘elder sibling’.
The Winnipeg blog has had 2,706 posts, and received a bit over 371,000 visitors.
Quite the growth for this little blog!
Thank you for visiting and for telling your friends!


Okay… enough with the numbers.
Let’s get back to the recipes which deserve the credit for all these visits!

I recently took a look at how this blog’s posts have been doing.
Here are the current all time top ten posts:




Please, if you haven’t already, do try the recipes on these lists.
They’re not popular recipes because people don’t like them!

Back to the visitors...
As of last October the United States had 210,049 visitors, Canada had 41,609, Russia had 26,113, Malta had 24,589, and Australia had 24,292 visitors and they were the top five countries!
Thank you for visiting!
Now the top ten countries and their visitors are:

United States…………. 269,964
Canada………….…………. 49,165
Australia…………………… 29,281
Malta……………..……..…. 28,851
Russia………………………. 26,367
United Kingdom………. 17,882
France…………………..…..15,888
Germany…………..……….14,224
Ukraine.………....….…….  9,474
Romania………….……..…. 2,846

If you’d like to compare the growth and changes from last year, here are the stats from 2016.

During the years there have also been visitors from Turkey, Italy, Finland, Poland, Spain, the Netherlands, Macedonia, Mexico, Afghanistan, Thailand, Slovakia, Ireland, Denmark, Bangladesh, Sweden, Israel, Moldova, Malaysia, Singapore, Kuwait, Greece, Kenya, Vietnam, Czech Republic, Brazil, Bermuda, Namibia, Cyprus, India, Philippines, Japan, South Korea, Norway, New Zealand, Madagascar, Armenia and China.
I'm always amazed at learning where you live.
I expected many visitors from the United States, Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom since many Maltese immigrated there, especially after World War II.
It is a small world after all!!
