And where are you?
I get a report each week of how many people read my blog. Or at least click on the page. I've had this blog over two years now and I've only JUST noticed that the report I receive also has a link to a website where I can get things like maps of where my readers are coming from.
The red dot is where I am. The green dots are where the last 10 visitors came from. And the white dots are the 50 previous visitors. Shelley Munro - I'm assuming that's you down there in New Zealand. But I also had someone from Australia drop by.
I'm betting a couple of those green dots are my critique partners in Texas and Louisiana. There's one out in Seattle way - Lauren Dane perhaps visiting during Snippet Saturday. And several in California - RJ Lebeau, a new friend from Twitter and fellow Romance Diva perhaps? Another out in Nova Scotia - Julia of "A Piece of my Mind" blog, is that you? And someone up close to Hudson Bay - Churchill, Manitoba maybe? East coast, west coast, central US and Canada. It's so cool to see where you're from.
There is someone from England, another from Scotland (Edinburgh?) and several visitors from the Netherlands. Another visitor came from the southern tip of Sardegna (in the island in the middle of the Mediterranean) Is that what we in North America call Sardinia? I've even had a visitor from Egypt.
My website also provides stats, just not in map form. I've had visitors from Canada and the States, naturally, and from Australia and New Zealand. But also from Russia, Poland, Singapore, South Africa, the United Arab Emirates, Germany, the Netherlands again, Switzerland, Finland, Belgium, Brazil (Yay, South America is finally represented!), Mexico, India, Denmark, Norway, Portugal, Costa Rica, Turkey, Ireland, Taiwain and the Seychelles.
So ... now I know where you're from ... I'd love to have you leave a comment and tell me who you are and where, and how you found me.
