We wanted to devote this post to all the people who follow Exchanges and make the blog so successful! This year, it was named as one of the best eating disorder blogs by Healthline. We really do appreciate our followers and hope that you all enjoy staying up-do-date with the blog. In case you did not know, we have people following the blog from around the world! It is always exciting to look at the Site Stats and see a colorful map, indicating lots of global viewers. So where do our followers and viewers come from? We have viewers from every continent, except Antarctica, which is pretty amazing. This wide readership speaks to the growing global interest in eating disorder research. In addition, the blog can be a great way for people to get leading-edge information from clinical providers, researchers, and scholars that might not otherwise be accessible in many parts of the world.
So how many views do we actually get? On a big day we might have over 300 viewers and on our best day we had almost 500 views. Even though a majority of our views come from North America, we do have followers from Australia, New Zealand, India, Norway, England, Brazil, Egypt, Chile, and Pakistan just to name a few countries. We hope even more people from around the world can follow us in the New Year!
We hope Exchanges can continue to enhance the global community and contribute knowledge to the field of eating disorders – and we cannot do that without followers! So thank you again and continue to visit the blog and the UNC Center of Excellence for Eating Disorders webpage.
