With a bit of instruction from great people on WordPress (go check out http://toemail.wordpress.com) I put a Flag Counter on my site yesterday. I’m hoping there’s a way to go back to January 1 and pick up all the stats since I started my new blog — it astounds and thrills me to see so many people from so many different countries participating in this blogging community. So far, there are 40 countries represented on my site, and 1,853 individual people from those areas, some of whom have visited many times. This is truly one of the most gratifying elements to having a blog — the privilege of rubbing shoulders with people from literally all around the world. To each of you — I am so very happy to have you here. Please come back often, leave me a message, share something of your life with me!
