The idea to blog grew out of discussions that Mendee, Byamba and I were having almost every day at the office. Social developments in Mongolia, current politics, curious aspects of comparisons, etc., these were all discussions we were having. At some point, we decided that there were not enough discussions of this kind that connected different centres of interest in Mongolia around the world.
At first we were speaking primarily to ourselves, though now accessible to others in our thinking.
We’ve published a total of 403 posts.
The most read post has been “Corruption in Mongolia according to Transparency International“. It has been read nearly 1,500 times.
We’ve covered a great variety of topics, captured somewhat by this recent tagcloud.

Over these past five years, a total of 79,000 readers have visited our pages. The top ten locations of our readers are: Mongolia (23%), U.S. (20%), Canada (14%), UK (5%), Australia (5%), Germany (3%), Japan (3%), China (2%), South Korea (2%), India (2%).
Interest in the blog obviously parallels broader interest in Mongolia and thus spikes in particular around national elections.
