Thank you to the U.S. and Global Readers of ThinkBrandFirst

This is pretty cool: Blogger stats tell me that there is an audience outside DC that reads my stuff.

Interesting: "127 Hours of Product Placement" is the most popular post so far. 

The point being: It's good to check in with metrics sometimes. Don't get obsessed, but it helps you to learn.

Here's a list of the "Top 10" countries my audience is logging in from:

  1. United States
  2. Germany
  3. UK
  4. Canada
  5. France
  6. South Korea
  7. Russia
  8. Australia
  9. China
  10. Singapore

Thank you all so much.
