California and Illinois tied for top state with the most readers.
That's one of my more interesting findings from July's end of month statistics.
In June, I reported on the most read posts. This month, I decided to build in Google Analytics, a free service you can sign up for to track your web and blog traffic, and MyBlogLog, another free service that combines social media and traffic metrics.

Written in March, this one keeps popping back up - thanks to a reader who suggested "PR" stands for punk rock. Here's to The Ramones!
Where Readers Came From
Top States: California, Illinois, New York, Texas, Florida - now I know where I should do seminars
New Visits: 86.48%, need to do a better job on conversion
Search Engines: 96% Google, all others are insignificant from my blog's perspective
Top Clicks and Links on MyBlogLog

What monitoring systems do you use to track your blog visitors and readers?
