It’s now been four weeks since the launch of my audacious quest to link with a follower in every state and country across the globe. Anybody care how it’s going? Great…glad you asked! I’ve now received comments from people representing thirty-five US states and thirteen countries (once again - I’m only using locations where people are currently located…no switch-hitters). Here are the states I DO NOT HAVE represented and need help with:
Alaska, Connecticut, Hawaii, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
As far as the countries go, it’s still easier to just list the ones I DO HAVE:
Australia, Canada, Ecuador, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and United States.
Somebody asked me why I just didn’t check the profiles of my followers and make note of their locations, or utilize Google Analytics to get the information that way. Out of 328 followers surely I had all fifty states covered. I could do that, but I wanted this to be an interactive endeavor with active participation. So I’m only counting the ‘Like Minded’ that post a comment, or e-mailed me directly.
If you’re a follower and currently live in one of the states I don’t have covered, or a country NOT listed above, please leave a comment on my original post here and be counted. If you know a blogger, or a blog reader, who resides in one of these areas, please give them a nudge in my direction.
Hey…even if you’re one of the ‘like-minded’(or would like to become one) who lives in a state or country already represented, go ahead and post a comment anyway. Let me know where you’re from. So far Florida, Georgia and North Carolina are tied for the most Cruising Altitude followers.
Just 15 states and 182 countries to go! Piece of cake!
- Continually trying to answer the question...can a man of few words write a successful novel?
I'm a Mystery/Thriller/Suspense writer from small town USA who struggles everyday to balance my passion for prose against the need to be a full-time bread winner. Finding ways to devote more time to my writing is the challenge, but for now all I can do is follow this tug at my heart to wherever it leads. I'm here primarily to soak up all the knowledge I can from the writing-centric blogosphere, but I'll do my best to contribute by thinking of new and innovative ways to churn the writing pot.
