I like to check my blog stats from time to time just to see where visitors are coming from and whether anyone is actually reading my hopeful drolleries.
Not to worry that I might trace you or stalk you...all that the stats tell me, location-wise, are the country and usually the city, but often neither.
Of course there are blogs that have literally hundreds of countries represented and reams of comments attached to each post. I'm lucky if I get one comment. [insert frownie face of your choice here].
But in the last week I started noticing an awful lot of activity and about 75% of it can be tracked to two cities: Bremen, Germany and Cambridge, Minnesota USA.
As Butch Cassidy says: "Who are these guys?"
As The Who say: "I really wanna know."
And as Homer Simpson says: "Doh."
It's true that I can identify some visitors by their city, if it's Erie PA, for example, I know it's a family member or high school buddy who's on my e-mail list. If it's Covington KY it's got to be my sister.
So you persons from Bremen and Cambridge...I'm very curious who you are. (I'm not complaining of course.)
You couldn't be the same reader unless you are a time traveler. Have you mined some particular nugget of interest and want to see what other shiny objects might have emerged ? Are you planning to visit Saudi Arabia? Are you enthralled with my dollops of Arabicana and need another hit? Do you want to go get some coffee sometime?
Don't be afraid. I'm just wondering what brings you to the Veeds of Arabia blog 5 or 6 times a day.
For anyone who wants to say hi, I can be reached directly via the e-mail address over at the left under "About the photos."
