Who reads this from Germany?

Sitemeter is great. You find all sorts of information from what people search under to find you, to how long they spend on your site. One question has me curious though. Who in Germany keeps reading?

I had a relative over there for a while that I figured it must be, but he has since moved back to the states and I still see hits from Kaiserslautern, Rheinland-Pfalz. This is actually probably one of the most regularly occuring places on the Sitemeter statistics. If it was something closer to home, then I might chalk it up to multiple people. However I am firmly convinced this is a single person.

So, Mr. Kaiserslautern, Rheinland-Pfalz, you have been picked as the new blog-famous person of My Reputo. I know it probably doesn't mean much, but what the heck, I'll give you the title anyway. Furthermore, besides where your ISP is located, I know nothing about you.

You could be a hacker from Hobbs, NM that is just using Kaiserslautern, Rheinland-Pfalz as a feignt to throw anyone off your trail.

Or, you might be the Mayor of Kaiserslautern, Rheinland-Pfalz and just want to keep up on what is going on in the mind of a normal American.

Or you could be a US Serviceman stationed over in Germany that might have known me once and lost contact over the years (os which there are several).

Or you could be a tourist from Italy, that just happened to settle down in Kaiserslautern, Rheinland-Pfalz for the last month.

Finally, it is entirely possible that you have no connection to me whatsoever (although I did take German in high school) and just found my blog through some other link (I'd put my money on this one).

So, I invite you to email me at myreputo-at-yahoo-dot-com or leave a comment here and tell me what keeps you coming back. Don't worry, I won't reveal your identity if you don't want me to. Seeing your ISP just makes me wonder (whoever in Singapore visited obviously didn't like it enough to come back).


  1. I think this must be address to me, since I am reading from Otterbach RP Germany, a little town just outside of K-town. I work as a contractor with the US Army, got out of the Army in 99. I don’t recall how I found this blog; I read a lot of blogs on Firearms, Freedoms, and Politics. I think I followed a link from another gun blog, and like it enough to add it to my favorites. One of the great things about browsing with Opera, and Firefox is that I can open all my blogs at once, and then read them as I get to them.

    I wish I had taken German in high school but, I get around good enough with out. I do wish you would update/post more often, but it’s free for me, so I guess I get what I paid for.

  2. I would post more often if blogging was my priority. However, I have a wife, kids, house, and job that take up my time. Plus there are those other fun activities (like shooting) that consume my time as well. thanks for reading!
