I marvel once again at the community that's sprung up here. Truly an unexpected gift, and greatly appreciated.
You'll be shocked to know that I regularly geek out over my stats. No, really. Of course I like to see agents and editors show up; of course I obsess over New York ISPs. All blogging authors do. Right?
If it's not true, don't tell me.
But it goes beyond that. I puzzle over trends, like why I have so many readers in Massachusetts. Not just the main urban areas, but towns with curious names that sound like settings for novels.
And how many writers there are from my old stomping grounds in the Northeast (yeah, yeah, you all know I'm a Yankee. This isn't some kind of new disclosure.).
And if those readers WHO LIVE WHERE I LIVE NOW will ever bump into me at Starbucks and never know who I am.
And how in the world somebody from Bosnia and Herzegovina found me.
And so on.
A fun little exercise, to be sure. But today I'm asking for more. Because I lurve you.
So. Where are you from? How did you find me? How has the COMMUNITY here touched your life?
I'm certain to love reading your comments today!
