As the number of “Like Minded” following my blog approaches 300, I’m continuing to make final preparations for my totally awesome celebration (excited girly giggle when I think about my prizes). But I’ve also found myself contemplating the make-up of those who’ve joined hands with me and attached themselves to my site. I already know that approximately 95% are female, but where is everybody from? How many Texans are here? Californians? East Coast vs West Coast? North vs South? And let’s not forget about those outside our borders. I know there’s at least a couple Canadians, a few from the U.K., and even some from down under. Wouldn’t it be cool to have a blogging buddy in every state, every country for that matter? Am I dreaming too big? Should you put restrictions on dreams?
I’m not. There are 50 states in the US, one self-governing incorporated territory of the US (Puerto Rico) and 195 countries worldwide. Let’s see how many of those I can touch. But I’m going to need your help…and it’s in two parts. First, those of you who are already following me, I need for you to leave me a comment and let me know from where you hail. Stand proud for your home. Yeah…yeah…I know I could install Google Analytics or some other fancy traffic monitor to tell me that sort of information, but I prefer the old school method. Second, once we’ve figured out which state or country I don’t have representation for; I’ll need your assistance to fan out across the blogosphere in search of a writer from that area? Are there any bloggers in South Dakota? Rhode Island? How about Ecuador? Cuba? Wales? If they’re out there, let’s seek them out.
So how about it...are you game? Where are you from?
