Hello World!

A couple of weeks ago I changed over the interface I use on blogspot. It wasn't a very big change for any one who isn't me. In fact I don't think it would have blipped on anyone's radar at all, as you have to be on this side of my 'sign in' in order to see any difference at all. So, unless you're hacking the Turtlepack you wouldn't have seen it.

Initially I wasn't overly impressed, mostly because they moved all the buttons on me. I had to find the commands all over again just to be able to do the things I'd always done, which is just irritating and inefficient. I was almost on the edge of changing back to the old interface when,  today, I found this.
This is a world map that charts you. You, being the people who view my blog. I now know a little bit about who you are, or at the very least where you are from, or happened to be situated when you were having a squiz. The darker the colour on the map the more page views the country has logged. It's very exciting for me, and as such, I just wanted to give a shout out to a few countries.

First of all, I'd like to give a big "Thank you" to Australia, Japan and the good ol' US of A, you are my bread and butter and I can say from personal experience are all awesome countries to live and work in.

Next I'd like to say a big "Howdy" to Canada, Russia and Malaysia, I haven't had a chance to visit yet, but I hear good things.

Thirdly, I want to give it up for my European friends, France, Germany, Denmark and the UK. I'm planning my next big trip in your direction. I hope to see you soon.

Lastly, to the countries that didn't quite rack up enough views to be shown above on the blogspot map, I still appreciate you stopping by, I hope I had the chance to make you smile. 'Hello and thanks' to Romania, Singapore, India, Italy, Spain, and Indonesia.

Happy travels all!
