~ 100.000 mark ~

Woo Hoo!! I hit the 100.000 mark!! Isn't that amazing??!!

In 3 years, actually 37 months I have one hundred thousand visitors from 198 countries!! Officially there are only 195 countries in the world... but I guess this is a different way of counting countries.

That means that I have about 2750 visitors a month looking at my life here at Funky Doodle Donkey!! About a 1000 a day... impressive... for just looking/peeking into my life. I mean I don't give a service, post recipes, or free things... just rambling about my life :-) Sweet! Cool! Never thought this would happen 3 years ago... i just did it for my family and friends overseas... I got so much more than I ever thought I would get out of writing a blog. If you don't do it yet, go for it, it is fun!!

So many people stop by and only so little who comment??!! Why not more?? I don't get that, I want to know who you are, who is looking at my life?? Please try to comment more and introduce yourself, I like to know you, where you are from, what brings you back to my site all the time?? Do you have kids, twins, adopted children from Thailand, do you live in Africa, are you an expat, are we having the same common interests, what is it that brings you to my site??

I would LOVE to know!! So please ~ STOP LURKING ~ and SAY HI!!

My life has changed quite a bit since I started blogging in January 2008, still living in Connecticut not knowing what would hold for me in the near future, definitely not knowing that I would be moving in 5 months to Africa, but loving my life and sharing it with you.... hopefully entertaining you enough to keep you coming back!!

THANK YOU ALL for stopping by and coming back. I am having fun keeping up this blog, it is a great way for me to see what I did the last weeks, months, years and staying in touch with family and friends this way.

Hopefully I will be updating my blog even when I move again to another country, because I am sure that will happen sooner or later... are you staying with me and following me then too?? I hope so!!

Well friends from all over the world, let's stay in touch and come back to my little space in blog world!!

Love, Mireille

I get to be the first comment on your 100,000th post. I probably deserve a prize or something! LOL! I think it's kind of odd, too that I get hundreds of hits a day, yet only an average of 5 comments. If I get more than 10 comments, that's a huge day. It's sort of weird that people are interested enough to keep coming back, but don't want you to know who they are. I think we should have an official introduction day where everyone who reads everyone else's blogs has to just write where they're from and why they read your site. It would be interesting. For instance, I get the same people from Ireland, France, Iceland, Finland...I can tell from my feed. But none of them has ever left a comment. I wish I knew who these people were and why they keep on coming back.

Hi Mireille! I am just a culture vulture who loves reading about life in different countries. I like to hear about your travels, especially the foods you eat and cook. Being a dietitian, I love food so much and my job involves talking about it all day long.

I often mean to comment but I currently read the blogs I follow whilst I quickly eat breakfast before leaving for work. But I will definitely try to comment more to show my appreciation for all the interesting things you post about!

Aren't you a little, teensy bit frustrated? Two comments on your post asking for comments? I am trying this too. I just want to know who is reading the blog and why. So far? One comment. Far fewer than I normally get. I guess the lurkers will just always be the lurkers.
