Could Blogthings Predict the Election?

Probably not, but so far we’re 1 for 1! Fred Thompson was generally in the bottom three for our visitors when they took the Who Should You Vote For? quiz that we just launched yesterday. So it’s not that surprising that Fred was not popular enough to stay in the race. (And as a result, he has been removed from our quiz.)

Who would Blogthings visitors elect as president? Well, if they voted their hearts, early results suggest it would be Dennis Kucinich or Barack Obama. Who wouldn’t be president? For Blogthings visitors, it’s pretty clearly Mitt Romney.

Who Spends the Most Time on Blogthings?

Like Fanta soda and David Hasselhoff, Blogthings is most popular outside the United States.

Okay, that’s not exactly true. 66% of our traffic (measured in unique sessions) comes from the US. But if you measure visitors truly in terms of how much time they spend on our site, Americans are just about average. And that means over 100 nations bring us visitors who spend more time taking Blogthings than Americans do.

So where do our long lingering visitors come from? It’s fairly mixed. People from beachy, temperate places seem to enjoy hanging out at Blogthings… and the same can be true about people from some of the coldest areas in the world. We also have some long visits from people in countries that are predominantly Muslim.

Welcome to the Big Shiba blog

If you ever saw our old Big Shiba site, it was awfully boring. It turns out that it’s difficult to create any sort of interesting corporate site when you already work full time on your business.

So we thought we’d give WordPress a try. And as usual with WordPress, it’s easy and impressive.

Big Shiba is a small publishing company based in Colorado. You may know us through our site Blogthings, especially if you take online quizzes. And if you haven’t heard of Blogthings, you should definitely check it out. We’ve got over 500 original personality quizzes and a loyal following.
