In addition to my dear followers, I get visitors from around the world whose faces and names I never learn.
On the day I posted after my three week hiatus, I had over 120 visitors in a few hours. Most of you were strangers to me.
Was I happy with all these visits? Yes, I was.
I had expected during that hiatus that readership would fall seriously off. That I’d be forgotten; dropped out of cyberspace; cast off into the black hole of lame-o bloggers who don’t do what they say they’ll do and are self-focused enough to think the whole blogging community cares. Poor me.
But wait! Poor me nothing. There you all were.
So please, if you’d be so kind, won’t you say ola or bonjour or g’day or dzien dobry if you never have before? I’m dying to know who you are. Here are some of the mysterious places you are from:
Pretoria, Parow, and Johannesburg, South Africa
Somewhere in Kuwait
Honolulu, Hawaii (I think you, sly friend, come a lot!)
Phoenix, US (I lived in that valley for 18 years)
Buenos Aires, Argentina
Athens, Greece (are you safe from the fires??)
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Whitley Bay, UK
A heartfelt thanks to all who visit here…
