Extreme Housewifery Worldwide!

Here’s me eating incredibly expensive food in Bordeaux!

I’ve been having a little look at my blog stats. I find it quite amazing that I’ve nearly had 350,000 page views, although judging by the amount of spammy comments I delete every day, a lot of those may well just be crazy bots, trawling the net.*

I’ve noticed that I get a lot of hits from different countries, so I thought it would be nice to leave a little note to all of you from foreign climes – whether you are real people or not. So, after the USA and the UK, which countries pop by for a dose of Extreme Housewifery the most?

*Warning* The following translations are done using free translation apps online, and so therefore probably bear little resemblance to what I want to say. It’s all a bit of fun though!

Здравствуйте. Спасибо за то, что посещать мой блог. Я никогда не был к России, но я хотел бы посетить. Что делает Вы любите приблизительно мой блог?

4. France – 11,595 views
Bonjour. Merci de visiter mon blog. J’ai visité la France dans beaucoup d’occasions. J’aime particulièrement boire du vin français! Comment est le temps en France aujourd’hui ?

5. Germany – 9365 views
Hallo. Vielen Dank dafür, meinen blog zu besuchen. Ich lebte in Deutschland seit achtzehn Monaten, als ich wenig war. Bevor ich Europa verließ, war es mein Lieblingsland in der Welt. Ich denke, dass mein Lieblingsplatz der Schwarzwald ist. Wo in Deutschland würden Sie empfehlen zu besuchen und warum?

And now for the benefit of my English speaking readers, thanks to the wonder of the Internet, I will now back translate all of the above. Presumably with hilarious results.

3. Russia
Hello. Thanks what to visit my blog. I never was to Russia, but I would like to visit. What does you love approximately my blog?

Hmm, that’s not too bad. I am vaguely disappointed.

4. France
Good morning. Thank you for visiting my blog. I visited France in a lot of opportunities. I particularly like to drink some French wine! How is the time in France today?

Wow, internet translations have got a lot better than they used to be. Admittedly I did ask about the weather at the end originally, but still… My hopes for hilarity are pinned on the German translation then.

5. Germany
Hello. To visit many thanks for it, mine blog. I lived in Germany since eighteen months when I was a little. Before I left Europe, it was my favorite land in the world. I think that my favorite place is the Black Forest. Where in Germany you would recommend to visit and why?

Well, there you go. I didn’t use Babelfish, as I normally would, because it doesn’t do Russian, so instead I used this Free Translation online instead. And it turns out I would recommend it highly. It does a fine job. What an unexpected end to this blog.

* I don’t really know what bots are, or why they want to come to my blog and leave weird comments, but there you go. The magic of technology means I don’t really need to know.
