S / O to South Africa!

South-Africa-2

So yall know every now and again I check to see who stopped by the PBS Blog from across the water. I say every now and again because I try not to get too caught up in the stats every single time I post. I just don’t want to get distracted. I prefer to be lead naturally toward post ideas without the influence of how little or how great the views are. So I’ve organized my thoughts to take a look at them only enough to stay in tuned, to stay aware but not to depend on. So anyway, when I noticed more views from outside countries I did a blog series where I gave them a shout out. Only because other countries don’t get the same representation as America does. I decided then to shine some light on my viewers from across the water, those outside of the U.S. Make a long story short, I’m sitting here in the late hours drafting tomorrow morning’s post and decided to stroll on over to my stats. This is when I noticed I’ve received a total of 65 views from yesterday (7 / 30) from South Africa alone. Now yall know they deserve a shout out! I know some of you veterans out there are used to this but I’m really excited to have so many people from one place to support this blog and from Africa of all places is icing on the cake! I guess you can call it a milestone. I didn’t set out for this specifically, but I am always excited to reach as many people as I can. Even if their eyeballs slightly brushed upon the page its really cool to see just how many people viewed your blog and I want South Africa to know that I appreciate your support. I also appreciate everyone who supports this blog by sharing my posts, participating, commenting, and reading in silence.

Welcome Russia

So as everyone whose probably tired of these posts by now already know, I am showing love to all my viewers who I see stop through to peek at this blog who are from other countries outside the U.S. It is something I don’t think is done very often, and not too long ago I saw a view come in from Russia! Welcome Russia!  Do come Again.

Nigeria and Pakistan

This week I am showing appreciation for my International Viewers. And being that I have residence in the U.S. that means any country outside America.  It may seem small, but if you appreciate the little things you can be trusted with greater things. I by no means under appreciate any level of support.

So anyway, what’s up Nigeria and Pakistan! I saw you this morning. Thanks for scrolling through The PBS Blog. 🙂

400 Follows and International Support

As I approach a potential 400 subscribers (aka followers of this blog), I can only maintain the excitement that out of 400 people I am at least reaching one of you (it is my hope). I still remember when I got my first 100. It was very exciting and I told myself I would not shout from the rooftops until I reached at least 400. And as I look over the map of the locations of some of you with 3 followers short of my mini goal, I cannot help but notice something even more exciting than that: International Support.

I’ve only been blogging at this address for about 7 months. And as I continue to learn about blogging itself, about you and your interest and about how I can be of service, of friendship, and of inspiration, one of the many exciting things about Blogging is the ability to reach people across the globe. It is one of the many advantages of the internet and increase in technology. While there are many things that excite us about our writing endeavors, I especially enjoy the International views that I get from those of you across the water. I also think it is something we underestimate on a general scale. That is, the world is much bigger than the U.S.

So without further ado I would just like to take the time to thank those of you from:

Germany, Australia, France, and the UK.

Do you live outside the U.S.? Where are you from? I would love to know! Comment below!
