Stories, thoughts, observations, rants and dribble. Just another of my attempts to keep the interested people informed ...

They love me, they really love me!

Now that I've finally updated things somewhat, I have taken a moment to check out who's been coming to see my site.  This interests me for a lot of different reasons.  It's nice to know I have a regular readership (mostly friends and family), but it's also interesting to see who visits me from where, and for what reason.
Of course there are the random search strings that I sometimes mention, and there always seem to be a good chunk of people that just click on "Next Blog", or whatever that button is, and stay for less than 5 seconds.
Today though is the first day when I have had everyone stay for over 30 seconds.  Hooray! 
You may (or may not) have noticed the little world map at the bottom of the right hand column.  It is a cool little monitor that keeps track of the locations of visitors to my site.  If you click on it (or here), you can see a magnified version of the world with little red dots on it.  Mostly the readership had been in NZ, the UK, Australia and North America (mostly the states but I'm sure one of the dots is Toronto).  Today I've noticed some in Alaska, India, Scandinavia, South America and Asia.  Hooray!  Of course, I'm fairly sure all the Turkey ones are me.  Nothing like biased data!
So to summarise - I notice when you visit.  And in an appreciative sort of a way, not a stalking one.  So Çok teşekkür, many thanks!

Well done Wendy .. what a wonderful time you are having. I have checked out some of your photos. I love the ones of ANZAC Cove and wish I could see that part of the world.

I enjoyed travelling with the NZ Navy, but I didn't make it to Europe or the American continent (only Hawaii). The other places I visited was Sudan, Djbouti, South Yemen and of course Sri Lanka, Singapore and Hong Kong.

You keep those stories coming and I will keep reading them.

Good luck for the rest of your trip. Regards .. Harvey
