So, as most of you are no doubt aware, Art really, really wants a Greenland visitor to his blog. Being the awesome, computer-literate friend that I am, I decided to make it my mission to make this happen. (And, yes, my paternal great grandparents really did leave Copenhagen for New Jersey. I can’t explain it, either.)
Flagcounter is a site from which you can get a free flag counter for your blog. I opted for a full map version (check my sidebar), but there are multiple sizes/formats available to suit your needs. In addition, they maintain a forum. You can go to the forum and ask people to visit your site in exchange for visiting theirs. How awesome is that?
I went to the forum and begged for a Greenland flag on behalf of my somewhat technically challenged friend. And though we haven’t actually collected Greenland yet, the following folks from other beautiful countries were kind enough to visit. I would really appreciate it if, when you have a little time, you might click these links, too. Aside from the fact that I think it would be a nice “extra” thank you to give these folks a bump in their stats (and a few extra flags!), it’s also neat to see what folks in non-English speaking parts of the world are blogging about.
Without further ado:

Oh! I almost forgot to mention: you can also make multiple flag counters. I added a couple to my front page, including one that shows how many visitors I’ve gotten from each of the other US states plus Puerto Rico since I started using it. It makes it easier for other flag counters to see my stats and gives me added insight into who’s visiting from where in the USA.
I’m not all that concerned with stats, (Dude. I just gave up 90% of my followers to start over here.) but I do think it’s fun to make these connections. How about you?
