10,000 Views (from 61+ countries)!

Ciao Readers!

Today I am being totally self-indulgent (like a blog focused on me and my adventures isn’t self-indulgent enough already).  This past week my blog past 10,000 all time views!  How cool is that?!?!  To be fair, “views” do not equate with visitors, let alone different visitors; “views” refers to how many times people click on pages, etc. on my blog – so for instance, if you have clicked through on half of the e-mail notifications you have received to individual posts, then clicked on more pages while you were visiting, you alone may be 100+ of those 10,000 views.  Some people land on my blog totally by accident – interestingly, the most popular search terms that get people here are things having to do with scarves – “why do Italians wear scarves” or “how to wear a scarf like an Italian.”

In addition to being tickled at the number of views (and by the way – THANK YOU ALL!!!), I am really tickled by how far my blog has traveled (way further than I have).  I think it’s cool, so I am sharing with you the country views report, below (fyi WordPress, Puerto Rico is actually a commonwealth).  Thanks for coming along for the ride and please stick around for the next 10,000!

    Very cool, Hope! I’m taking credit for a couple of hundred views! Funny about the scarf post–I forwarded that one to several scarf-wearing friends! You keep blogging and I’ll keep reading! Yours, A Loyal Reader

  2. Ciao Hope. I am getting hungry reading your posts. Thank you for your friendship in Firenze. I am missing the daily cappuccino, and the almost daily indulgence of gelato. I wonder if a cappuccino machine could produce anything like what we had at Quelo.
    Since Canadians talk about the weather a lot, you need to know that It is 39 F. in Toronto and Hurricane Sandy’s rain and winds are arriving here (presto)!
    I look forward to reading future posts.

    • Ciao Sharon! Thanks so much for reading and commenting. I was sad I didn’t get to say goodbye properly (looked for you on the last museum tour) – now I don’t have to!

  3. Arrivederci (blame it on jet lag)
