I’ve been doing this WordPress blog thing for about 6 months. Growth has been slow, and since I’ve been posting poetry, my exposure has expanded quite a bit.
But I want to focus on one little aspect… The “Countries” data shown on the Traffic page. I think it’s a lot of fun to see new countries appearing in the list with the little pictures of their flags. It’s kind of gratifying to think that my words (and my first wife’s words, in the form of her poetry) is touching people from all parts of the globe.
Here’s the map from today and the map from all time. Nigeria was added to my list today; Malaysia and Singapore got added yesterday. I don’t know if it’s possible that that all countries can be represented, but in 6 months, I think I’ve made good progress.
I’m sure there’s a poem in here somewhere. If I can extract it from the depths of my brain, I’ll be sure to share it.
