Whur y’all from? / Long may they wave.
I have decided to add another gadget to my sidebar. Since I added the Feedjit Live Traffic thingy in December, this blog has had visitors from 40 countries, and I have attempted to save as many of their flags as I could. I have no idea how many total hits there have been because the Feedjit thingy seems to show only the most recent 50 or so. Like Ol’ Man River, it just keeps rollin’ along, hour after hour, day after day, 24/7/365, make that 24/7/366 during leap years. I might have missed a few flags because I myself am not on sentry duty either 24/7/365 or 24/7/366. A man has to sleep sometime.
So I am adding a Flag Counter today. I hope it works. If it doesn’t work at first, please help me figure out what I did wrong. Eventually we, together, will get it working properly -- I have faith in my readers. It would be nice if the Flag Counter worked retroactively and captured the 40 countries I saw before I installed it, but technology does not seem to have progressed that far yet.
I love findin’ out, as they say around here, whur all y’all* come from!
*In my little corner of the world, y’all can be either singular (as in you personally and perhaps other members of your family who are absent) or plural (as in everyone within earshot) but all y’all is definitely plural. Don't laugh. Some of you say you’uns and youse guys. I just know it.
