I still can't help but be fascinated by the widget on my blog that tells me where my visitors live. I admit to checking it daily to see whether I can determine any trends or guess at who might be reading my posts. I've had a few probable brushes with greatness, in that I was convinced that the Time Bandit captains had read my post about them, as I think did the author of The Shiniest Jewel (I still love your book, girlfriend). I also am regularly amazed by the far-flung places where my blog turns up (it doesn't hurt that, due to posting often, I have wicked SEO).
But today I was floored when I saw that I got a hit in Wasilla, Alaska. Could it be? Odds are about 7,000 to 1 that Sarah Palin read my remarks on Harcourt in Boston. She is shopping a book, ya know, so it's not out of the question.
So if you're out there, Sarah, sorry I didn't go see you when you came to Noblesville. I was kind of pulling for the other guy. But I wish you all the best with your book. I admit I'll be curious about it!
