I have to egotistically obsess just a little longer about the blog.
Trout Fishing in America has a song titled "Who Are These People?" That's what I'm wondering when I go to site meter and click on the 'location' tab.
This morning, somebody in Spearwood, Western Australia visited my blog! Were they lost? Looking for a cobbler recipe? Researching voting trends in Texas? Trying to find a good place to eat in Galveston? Searching for a Texas Music reviews? What?
And who is reading my blog in Phoenix? Unless the parents of one of my offspring's significant other are reading, OR the folks who send me my prescription drugs are interested in my scribblings, I don't "know" anybody in Phoenix. Boo and I cheer on the Phoenix Coyotes, but that's another blog topic. So who are you? Wayne Gretsky, could it be? Be still my pitter-patting heart!
And while I have friends and Fam in Arkansas, Missou, and Oregon, I don't know anybody in Fayetteville, Eugene, Portland, Branson, or Blue Springs. Thanks for reading, y'all. Drop me a comment, just a one liner if the mood ever strikes.
Westbrook, Maine do you know Stephen King? just curious. He's the only other person I know OF who lives in ME.
Power, Montana- how is it up in Big Sky Country? I've never been there, but always wanted to go. I think the Dearly Beloved has been hunting up there in the past. Maybe after my novel sells, we'll come up. I'll blog about it so you can schedule some time to meet us, if you like.
Monterey, CA- I KNOW who you are. Love you!
Los Alamos and Potomac, I've got a super bright neice working for NASA. She's an IT whiz! Wanna try to hire her away?
Mobile, Jimmy Buffett's home town! Welcome!
Chicago- are the Tsavo lions back on display? I won't come visit if I can't see them.
And then there's all those Northern tier states: Michigan- Troy, St. Joseph, and Dearborn; Wisconsin - just Eau Claire; PA - Altoona and Bellwood [sounds pretty, is it?]; Indiana- just Indianapolis.
And over in the Pacific NW we have the Washington State viewers in Seattle and Vancouver.
Last, but certainly, not least- Ft. Thomas, Kentucky. Now is that a town or an actual Army base, like Ft.Hood or Ft. Leonard Wood?
Now I know that there are other readers, b/c I've seen them on the site meter in the past. But it only lists the last 100 when I click on the location tab. For instance, I remember a visit from individuals in Indonesia, Milan, and some other far flung place like Okie City.
I thank you, one and all. I'll keep writing, even if Flo, George and Dian are the only folks I know are reading. I like writing. It's a good mental exercise. But I won't deny the Site meter is one great ego stroke.
I just have one last question: Who is reading from Lewisville?
