Blog Visits from Other Countries

I happened to check the origin of visitors to my blog and found some very strange results. Besides the United States, visits to my blogs from other countries are ranked in order as follows: Saudi Arabia, The Czech Republic, Canada, and Norway.

While I did spend a great many years growing up in Saudi, I’ve not yet mentioned it on this blog. So someone there must be looking me up, but I don’t recall anyone from Saudi that still actually lives in Saudi. So whoever you are — identify yourself!

I have no idea what’s going on over at the Czech Republic and frankly, I always liked their original name Czechoslovakia. I’m all for democracy, but their old name was way more hip.

I only know one of one person in all of Canada, my old saxaphone bandmate from Junior High School, Audrey Alexa, who oddly, I knew in Saudi Arabia, but she is originally from Ukraine, which isn’t too far from Czechoslovakia.

And Norway? Well, again I haven’t mentioned it here yet, but my entire Dad’s side of the family originates from Norway. But we haven’t had a living relative from there in decades. Maybe my last name is what is causing the hits since the name, which I believe was originally Salzberg, is Norweigan in origin.

The world truly is a very small place. Even more so now thanks to the internet.
