Hello, world!

WordPress added a new statistics feature – it now keeps track of where my readers are from! Here is the map of countries colored by hit count since it started keeping track.

I love it. I’ll have to try to post something about embroidery in every single one of those countries (105 of them!). If you want your country to show up earlier you can send me tips on where to find information!

The big surprise in the top twenty is Morocco. I had no idea I had so many people from Morocco reading my blog. Hello, Morocco!!!! I googled it, and Moroccan embroidery is gorgeous. I will try to write about it soon, but if any of y’all have a blog about Moroccan embroidery I would love to see it. Leave the link in the comments and I will go look.

The other surprise is New Caledonia, currently at #20. This was a huge surprise because I didn’t know there was a country named New Caledonia. Or Old Caledonia for that matter. It’s a cute little island off the coast of Australia. Hello New Caledonia! I love you!

I’m learning lots of geography through this blog. Here is the start of the country list, because I know you’re curious.

    I don’t do Moroccan embroidery, but I have a piece my sister brought me from there. I’m off to photograph it, and will post it later. It is nice !

  8. What an interesting statistical device. There were some surprises in there for me; I really didn’t think that you would get more hits from India and Sri Lanka for example, than from Australia. Maybe the rest of the country hasn’t discovered you yet, lol. When you think about it, all of those countries have their own indigenous forms of needlework and it seems that needlework per se is one of those things that can cross cultural boundaries with ease. Thank Heavens.

      Well, India is a lot more populated. On the other hand, if you want to recruit Australian readers and make it a contest, I absolutely don’t mind 😀
