If you will kindly indulge me, I want to point out a couple of features in the side bar. First of all, if you scroll down and click on the world map, you can see where all the IRL readers live: 139 different countries (if I counted correctly), and all 50 states plus the District of Columbia, Armed forces of the Pacific, Europe, Middle East, and Canada.
This is more fun than collecting states on license plates in a National Park. I am humbled and honored that so many of you actually read what I write. I have to agree with the gal who left me a comment declaring that I have "The Coolest ClustrMap in Blogosphere!”
Thanks, y’all, for putting dots all over the map.
Secondly, do you see how many different topics I have discussed over the past couple of years? Those labels are almost embarrassing; I’m all over the map from A to Z. Man! (Can you find the new letter I added today?)
Each week I ask myself what on earth I can possibly share with such a diverse group of readers who literally live all over the world. Usually an idea pops into my head, but sometimes not. Those are the posts I dutifully and apologetically send to the WOTH editor, and then you amaze me with your comments that are better than what I wrote myself.
This month I am grieving the absence of my dear friend, Cindy, who has stepped down from her position as the editor at Women of the Harvest. She was the brain behind this blog, my motivator, and creative genius behind all the fun graphics and titles. Now I am on my own with Cindy on the sidelines providing a dot in Colorado for my ClustrMap.
(In case you missed it, click here to read Cindy’s last “Letter from the Editor.” You can leave her a note of appreciation there, too, if you like.)
Because this blog takes a bit more time and effort when I can’t fall back on Cindy’s creative juices to pull it together for me and find any grammatical errors, I’d like to appeal to you to provide my occasional blog fodder. Please? Is there anything you would like to hear about? Questions you’d like to pose to this global audience?
I would love to hear from you. Either leave me a comment below, or feel free to send an email to me at IRL@lokerfam.com with your “Ask Jamie Jo” type questions.
IRL: Usually seeing red is an indication of an anger issue, but here “seeing red” brings me great joy. Thanks again!
