I started writing this over the weekend:
It has come to my attention that visitors to my blog are from all corners of the world. I know I primarily blog about things regarding my life here in Indiana. I imagine that some of it just may not make much sense to those of you visiting from the jungles of Portugal or from a cave in the Himalayas...or L.A.
But regardless, welcome to my blog. Or shall I say:
- Aloha mai
- Bruchim habayim
- Hiku a nat la
- Maligayang pagdating
- Oonta gleebin gloutin glowbin
- Howdy y'all (Texas)
- Hello, eh (Canadic)
- ...let me know if I'm missing your particular brand of greeting and I'll add it.
I’ve started keeping a list of every country my visitors come from. Granted, many of them “accidentally” pop in due to weird Google searches, and they’ll never ever come back.
But still, it’s a fun hobby to check Statcounter and see flags from the various countries represented each day.
So far, I believe that I have had visitors from more than 25 countries* and representing every continent on the planet……except for Antarctica.
In order to develop a reader base that far south, I’m throwing in this post. Be sure to send a link to any of your Antarctic friends.
Hi, all you Antarcticans! Welcome to my blog which, to you, must seem so very tropical and balmy...
And that’s where I stopped. I was just going to delete it because it's stupid and because I realized that no one lives in Antarctica, right?
WRONG!At lunch when I checked out some of the Statcounter information**, I saw that I DID have a visitor from Antarctica less than two hours ealier, and I hadn’t posted this yet. What are the odds? I am SO kicking myself for not finishing this awesome post in time.
Well, Antarctic friend, if you come back here again, please leave a comment and let me know! I'm curious about life in your neck of the woods. I've always wanted to know how your eyeballs keep from freezing, what does penguin taste like, and does making snow angels ever get old?
**Big Doofus, I just want you to know that the Stat info is real. I didn't make it up or Photoshop it or nuttin'.
* In case you wondered, I have had visitors from: Antarctica, Argentina, Canada, Cayman Is., Dubai, England, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Iran, Israel, Malaysia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Philippines, Romania, Scotland, Singapore, S. Africa, Thailand, Trinidad and Tobago, Turkey, United Arab Emirates.
