The next exciting thing that happened was that Katherine Poll from Digeus Software (http://www.digeus.com) invited me to write a review on their SnapIt program. I am not sure whether she has ever read any of my posts as I cannot imagine why she would want someone born before 1970 to write a review on any computer software (lol).
The next, and most exciting thing, is definitely my Revolver Map. OMG! I have 25 followers (24 up to last night + 1 new one tonight - Yippeeee) so I expected to see maybe ten or twelve little yellow dots (looks like stars to me - remember the gold stars for excellent work in primary school?) on my map. Well this is what I saw:

There were little stars all over the world! Look, this one over Vancouver must be Jo, and this one, somewhere in the centre of England could be Argent. The one over Israel is probably Duta, and the one over Nova Scotia..... but the Middle East?... the Horn of Africa, and what about those over the Middle East and the islands East of The East? There are little stars blinkiing in places where I didn't know there were places! Are the people over at Revolver Maps doing this to make me feel good, or is this really true? Have all these people visited my blog? In the classic words of every second teenager: "HOW COOL!"
Okay, okay, I know. Most hits were probably by accident, but so what? They still visited the blog of boring, insignificant me here in the back of beyond called Naboomspruit. WOW! You say I'm raving? Of course I am. Naboomspruit is never even mentioned in the national newspapers and here we are splashed all over the globe!
Seriously, this was such a surprise. I hope that at least a couple of them read my posts (or some of them) and that they found some kind of joy or enjoyment in them.
This also makes me very nervous though. I do hope I am portraying a positive image of my country and people - even though I occasionally complain and rant. I just wish they would leave some comment so that I know where and how to thank them for their visits. Oh well, maybe they will in the future, but in the meantime:
"WELCOME TO MY BLOG
AND THANK YOU FOR VISITING!"
