Hey, Cyberpals

I’ve just discovered Flag Counter, a widget that allows me to find out more about who’s visiting my site, and I have to say, I’m a little obsessed. In the last two days since I installed it, people from 29 different countries have visited Where the Butterflies Go.

Imagine if I could host that party in person! I’d have to serve cake. Coffee cake, crepes flambé, and ice cream. Flowers, lovely amber-coloured dishes and glasses; candles everywhere. A punch with the good stuff in it, a virgin one, and some coffee. And of course, a great mix of music in an attempt to suit all your tastes. I’d read my poetry, and you’d read yours. Then I’d make you strap on a nunchuck controller and play The West Wing for Wii (just wanted to see who’s actually reading this).

I’m learning a little about each of your countries every time you visit. Flag Counter has an option to click on the country name and learn about its history. Every time someone from a new area visits, I’m reading about your country. For instance, I knew very little about Lithuania, until I read this here:

It prompted me to scan the Net for some more information on the countries I haven’t visited and know little about. I’m not getting much writing work done today.

I love history and social studies–mix that with a variety of people from around the world who enjoy poetry and photography, and I’m in heaven.

These days, our attention spans are limited, and it seems there aren’t enough hours in the day. Thanks for spending some of your precious time with me here at Where the Butterflies Go. I may just have to host a blog party soon.

Best Wishes,

Heather

  1. So, now you know where the butterflies go actually. I am glad the butterflies do visit my country India.

    It makes me recall one of the early poems that I learnt in my mother tongue Hindi. Below I am translating the first few lines in English, for you and for your lovely readers:

    I am the breeze heralding Spring
    Listen to my ‘unheard of’ ways

    I travel anywhere, wherever
    I am a wanderer

    1. Sure. I’ll sell the idea to both corporations. Imagine–many goals, at the end you win the election but only if you reach all your goals. For instance, the walk and talk: you get extra points for repeating what the person said before you but stating it like a question, all while walking. And you take on characters as your players. You can be little tipsy Ainsley dancing and you have to avoid bumping into Bartlet, or CJ fielding questions from the press. Does a blog copyright the idea as mine and date of inception as 2010/11/23? I NEED TO GET OUT OF THE HOUSE! LOL

      1. Also bonus points for getting Republicans to work for you, not just with you.

        Extra tasks include making sure Gail’s bowl is properly decorated.
