**Updated country hit list, up to 160 countries of the 195 total countries in the world checking out (some regularly) my notes, that is 82% of the world!!*
First and foremost
I am always amazed and humbled by the amount of traffic I get from almost every corner of the world, I hope my ad-free and hopefully coherent explanations are useful to all my fellow CCNP Grinders from every walk of life, and if you ever have any questions on any topics please feel free to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org!
How this all began
This blog began as a free way to share and compare CCNP notes with fellow forum members around the internet, who quickly dropped out of the CCNP race, however I found a tab in my free WordPress dashboard that showed me I had tons of regular readers from all sorts of countries (~50 non-US countries).
I made the decision to purchase a premium account to remove the WordPress Ads from my webpage, and will never add click-bait advertising on my webpage, because I see it on a lot of similar blogs / technical training sites and I think its a gross practice.
My blog posts did start out a bit sloppy / goofy from my earliest days of ROUTE studies, so the ROUTE section is admittedly rough, but I will continue to improve content always!
And where is all this going?
To infinity, and beyond!
Really though once I finish my CCNP R/S Grind, I want to spread out my studies to other things I work with, and perhaps go for the CCNA Cyber-Ops as I like the blueprint.
However I will continue to update this with whatever I am studying, Cisco or non-Cisco, certification or non-certification related, to provide an additional source of information for IT professionals around the world.
So once the CCNP Grind ends, a new Grind will begin!
Disclaimer for all the information presented in blog posts!
None of the information is guaranteed to be absolutely updated or accurate, by next year there will probably be new methods to route traffic, and my posts claiming something is the most efficient way will be outdated (thats already been the case a couple times).
I try to include as much labbing CLI output to confirm my information / explanations, however Cisco.com documentation should always be primary source for information if in doubt, as I have already posted best practice examples from one year that I received feedback was outdated by the next year in my ROUTE materials.
Please comment on any incorrect information, and I will try my best to confirm its accuracy and update the post, and I always welcome any kind of feedback!
Now for my world famous list of countries that have visited this blog since creation, and why I would even waste my time updating it! 🙂
I have stopped updating the number of unique visits as there is now 160 unique countries with ever changing unique page hits, I still like to update the list from most visits to least, and why would I waste my time making a giant list that really serves no practical purpose?
Its like a lesson in geography not only in learning about new countries, but about how many people are looking at CCNP related materials from those countries!
For example, did you know there is a country named “Jersey” in the world?
I like to update it for others who may find the placing of countries interesting, as some of them I have never heard of, others I may never be able to even pronounce 🙂
All that being said, here is an updated countries only list as of 7/29/2018:
- Unites States
- United Kingdom
- Saudi Arabia
- South Africa
- Hong Kong SAR China
- Czech Republic
- South Korea
- Dominican Republic
- United Arab Emirates
- European Union

- Macau SAR China
- Papua New Guinea
- Congo – Brazzaville
- Cote d’lvoire
- U.S. Virgin Islands

I would have never imagined that my CCNP Notes would have started to generate that kind of traffic, that grows daily from MOST of the world, that is absolutely mind blowing to me and keeps me motivated to stay on the CCNP Grind! 🙂
