Yes, I know it is pathetically cliché, but it really is a small world, particularly with the internet bringing us closer together. WordPress has a very cool feature, which all of my fellow bloggers are aware of, that records where blog visitors live. I get a list of all of the hits my blog receives daily and the countries they come from.
Being that my blog is an English language blog, it is no surprise that the most hits come from countries such as the USA, UK, Australia and New Zealand. Yet, I find it so fascinating to know that there are also hits from places such as Albania, Japan, Ghana, Belgium and Honduras. Overall, I have had visits from 122 countries in the past ten months! What an honor! It is so fun to see where all of my readers live. They are LITERALLY all over the world!
What an amazing journey it would be if I could visit my readers in their home countries… can you imagine? For now, it will remain a fantasy, but I do hope to one day visit more of the countries my readers come from. I also wonder if a few more countries may make it on the list before I have completed my 400 day journey.
Today, 81 days ’til 40, I thank YOU, all of my readers from all over the world – you make writing so much fun for me!
