I don't know if you can see it, but I've got a button on my blog that links to some mega-switchboard in the sky (or the depths, since I do know that the salient wires are buried deep). It gives me reports about Traffic and such, most of which I'm still unblissfully ignorant of.
My favorite report, though, is the one called "Location". That tells me the city and state and country, if you will, of each visitor to my site. Mostly, it's got Elk Groves or Sacramento or Philadelphia. But sometimes my reading public comes from far afield.
I get so excited when I see that. I want to yell "Hello Taipei--whassup?" And "Hey Singapore, how'd you get here?" Or just plain--"Hi Butare, Rwanda. Who are you and will you be back?"
Hi hi hi, world out there. Am I incredibly uncool for getting excited about this????? Does anybody else think it's a wonder, this blogging thing?
