A year or two ago, Opinionated Man of the blog, Harsh Reality, ran a post in which he asked his readers to comment on their physical location. I found it interesting that so many people took the time to join in, from all corners of the world. I’d like to link to that post here, but OM has published so many posts it would probably take a good portion of the rest of my life just to find that particular one!
NOTE TO OPINIONATED MAN: I’ll be happy to include the link if you want to send it to me, or leave it in the comments below.
At that time, I had only a handful of readers myself, and I pretty much knew where all of them lived, seeing as the majority of them were friends and relatives. Now that I’m a big[ger] blogger (relatively speaking), I’ve kind of lost track of where everyone is. Sure, certain readers comment on each and every post – and I know where they hale from. (Yes, that’s bad grammar – deal with it.)
But how about the rest of you? Many of you read my posts without ever commenting or “liking” – that’s perfectly OK with me. You can print off my posts, tape them up, and throw darts at them for all I care. I’ll take whatever attention I can get.
Anyway, to create a sense of community – and to make me feel special – how about leaving a quick comment below and telling me what country or area you are in. Or provide the name of the nearest city or town. When I become rich and famous (i.e., win the lottery), I promise to host a blogger party and invite each and every one of you.
I’ll start: I live in Buffalo, New York, USA.
That was easy. Now it’s your turn. GO!
