My first post since I walked into Santiago – three weeks ago. I have been working on an assessment of the clothes and gear that I used and will post this info soon, but meanwhile I wanted to share with you my delight in ‘getting Greenland’.
There are very interesting statistics available on my wordpress blog – well at any rate they are very interesting to me. I can see how many visitors I have received on a daily, weekly, monthly, annual or all time basis, with similar information for views (a visitor may only view one post, or may read several or many) I can see if they have come via a click on another blog or website, and if they have clicked any links on my blog to another site. And the information I find most fascinating – I can see what country the visitors have clicked from, with a world map showing the countries coloured according to how many views have come from each. I have to say, my geography is improving, which certainly can’t be a bad thing!
When I click on the button for ‘all time’ views the map is very colourful and there is not much of Europe that is left white, except that is, Greenland. For a country of 840,000 square miles it has a tiny population of under 60,000 and I expect they are all much too cold to sit around looking at their computers, but it caused me to have a huge white blob between Europe and North America and I so wanted to colour it in. Well, today is the day it turned from white to beige. There was one visitor who viewed just one post, but when I saw that colour on the map it made me whoop with joy (‘little things please little minds’ is a phrase of my father’s that comes to the fore, and I’m sure he would be saying it if he were reading this!)
So thank you, person from Greenland – you have made my day!
And here is said map with a lovely beige blob to the east of Canada, and a list of the ninety countries from whence I have received visitors.
|Colombia||Korea, South||South Africa|
