Blogging Buddies around the Globe - Update

After one week…here’s where I stand in my quest to link with a follower in every state and country across the globe. I’ve received comments from people representing twenty-eight US states and seven countries (and I’m only using locations where they are currently located…no switch-hitters). I’ve garnered fifty-two responses in total, which is only 17% of my followers, so I know we can do much better. Here are the states I’m needing help with:

Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Vermont, Washington, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

As far as the countries go, it would be easier to just list the ones I do have:

Australia, Canada, Ecuador, Ireland, Sweden, United Kingdom and United States.

If you are already a follower and currently live in one of the states listed above, or a country NOT listed above, please leave a comment on my original post here and be counted. If you know a blogger, or a reader of blogs, who resides in one of these areas, please give them a nudge in my direction.

Just 22 states and 188 countries to go!

Oh yeah...on Friday I'm being interviewed by Gina at Passions on Paper as part of her FANTASTIC FRIDAY series.  Why don't you stop by and check it out.

  1. Woo hoo! Love the tour around the world. I'll have to think about which writers I know in any of those states. I have lots of friends and family in Colorado and MD but none of them blog.

    Good luck with your world domination! ;)

  5. Wish I could help but I'm in Texas! I'm loving the idea though! Does it count if I have a sister in Hawaii? She's not a blogger but I did do a blog about her once! LOL

    BTW per my Internal Conflict post I wrote it last week and I'm happily married so I have never had the experience I wrote about! You'ere in the clear, no need to lie low!

  9. It's too bad you don't accept the switch hitters... I was born in South Dakota and grew up in Wisconsin before moving to Illinois...

  12. Ha -- I need to read more carefully. You listed the states you NEEDED, not the ones you have. :) In any case, I'm glad to be a loyal follower from the great state of potatoes.

  22. Hi, DL. I write the Monday posts for the Northern Colorado Writers blog, The Writing Bug. NCW is a great group of writers of all levels and genres. Best of all, we're in Colorado.

    Good luck with the rest of your list!
