I am going to “out” myself and my new obsession.. Here goes (deep breath)… I want the world to read me… not everyone… just everywhere. There it is!… I said it… Just admitting it feels weird. (am I suppose to feel unburdened now?… or embarrassed and ashamed?). I am like an addict… I just can’t get enough… and I am not talking about “followers” or “likes” or “comments”… but visitors from different countries… (I want my map all colored in… a visit from every country… ). Have I developed a “world read me fetish”?
Before you judge (stop laughing...)… Let me offer some back story for those interested.
I chose to blog my weekends to document some of the “weird” things that I do… I chose wordpress with the idea at the end of each year I could use some online service like Into Real Pages to create a “real” journal. I had no initial desire for others to read what I write… Honestly I was surprised at how enjoyable it was to have all of you read, like, and even comment on my writings… and I have loved discovering all of you through your posts. With that stated… the thing that really excites me… makes me absolutely giddy…is every time I have a visit from some new country… currently I have been visited by 31 unique countries…(why would someone from Rwanda read me???)…I should be content with 31… BUT I WANT MORE… Not just more… ALL… You can’t imagine the angst I feel when I notice things like I have yet to even have one visit from South America… (oh…why do they ignore me)
I have noticed many are searching for and writing about ways to increase the amount of “followers”… I want to know… where is the help for those that want more diversity in there readers… (geographical diversity)…I need your help… Any ideas or advice for having a visit from every country in the world?… is this possible?… does anyone share this obsession and want to create a support group??? I want to conquer the world… are you with me?
Here is my current map (so much grey… what will I do):
