The Global FC

Hello world!

That's right, I am talking to the ENTIRE WORLD right now because apparently there are 17 people out there who checked this blog yesterday who do not live in the United States of America.


I know, I can't believe it either.

This is a snapshot of  yesterday's audience around 1:00 pm. I am completely amazed that anyone besides my 36,970 cousins and my mom read this blog. And now I have wonderful people who probably mistakenly googled something relating to real cowgirls or real problems with frustration and they stumbled upon me. I am sorry. I am sure speed limit signs saying "17 1/2" were not what you were looking for, especially since your country probably uses kilometers.

But welcome aboard, nonetheless!

So, I am going to give a shout out to the six people in Russia. Здравствуйте! (that means "hello." I hope.) I have never been to your country but I hope you are staying warm right now!

And then there is Chile. Hola Chile! I almost studied abroad in your beautiful country while in graduate school. Unfortunately, it was not meant to be. However, I may use my frequent flyer miles to see you.

And hello Romania! I actually have a wonderful, darling, fabulous friend in Romania right now. I bet she checked the website three times just to make me feel loved. HELLO SWEET FRIEND! I miss you tons.

And let's all say hello to India. I work with quite a few people in India and they are stupendous. Thanks for following along, peeps!

And then there is Brazil. Gearing up for Mardi Gras, are we? Have fun and stay safe!

Greetings to the Czech Republic! You are on my list of places to visit. I hope to meet you soon.

And to the one person in Great Britain: Hello! I am really excited for your summer Olympics.

Finally, to all those in the wonderful US of A: I like you a lot. Each one of you.

Happy Friday, world!


  1. 17 non-US people?? That is amazing - you're practically viral! ;-)

  2. Don't forget the little people when you get a book deal :)

  3. That is AWESOME! It totally boggles my mind every time I check my stats. For the first 4 years of blogging, I'm pretty sure I had a grand total of 10 loyal readers. Then all of a sudden, it just exploded and now there are tons of people all over the world reading! Boggles. My. Mind.

  4. Those wacky Romanians. :)
