I thought I would share with you today something I have come to enjoy about blogging: I like to see that map light up. Are you wondering what map I am speaking of? Well, hold on just one moment and I’ll tell you… I don’t know what it is like with other blogging platforms, but WordPress shows you a map on the Stats page and lights up the different countries that people have visited your blog from.
I love to see different countries highlighted on the map. I don’t know why I like this so much…just that I find it fascinating to see the different countries around the world that people are reading my blog from. Maybe it stems from my love of traveling – which, folks, sadly doesn’t happen too often due to being expensive – and this is as close as I can get to other countries… I don’t know.
Every time I see a new country highlighted, my first reaction is: Ooh, cool! Of course, it’s likely that some of these people stumbled on to my blog by accident, but I can still check that country off on the map. These are the countries that have been highlighted so far (I’ll try not to miss any out. I have also tried to put the names of countries in one of the colours from their flag):
- United Kingdom
- United States
- Sri Lanka
- Saudi Arabia
- Hong Kong
- New Zealand
I enjoy getting to talk to people from other countries and am always surprised when another country pops up highlighted, and may it continue.
