Where are you from?

If you have a Blogger account, have you ever noticed the "STATS" link ? After you sign in and go to your Dashboard, you can see it there. It shows the most visited pages and posts from today, or this week or even in the last few months. It shows where your visitors come from (which countries and from which websites). A very cool tool !

And just for fun today, I thought I would share a few license tags from my lovely Sunshine State!

Love the palm trees.

In case you didn't know, we live in Bulls Country :-)

And there is always sunshine for golfing!

Hummm............ wonder what this message means?

I do agree with the message on this tag. But surrounded by chain links?????

Manatees are famous here too...............


Honoring our service men and women.

Who is this????

Some of my family members are big Rays fans!

My stats said I have visitors from all over the world.
Please leave a comment and tell me where you are from :-)

That was fascinating information ... I had never checked that out before. It certainly answered the question why I was getting so many "odd" hits. ;-)

I'm wishing you a terrific Tuesday from southwestern Illinois ... 25 minutes from downtown St. Louis.

Mary said...

I'm from Virginia, but I was fascinated by your license plates. We always play the License Plate game during the summer. This year we just had a staycation, but you can still find loads of states just going around your area. My teen daughter was keeping the list on her cell phone - then dropped it into the pool (accidentally). And that was the end of our License Plate game for 2011 :) I love your manatees and I'd have to vote for that one as my fave. By the way, which type do *you* have?

The 'stats' information is so much fun. I check it periodically just to see who's been visiting. :-)

Beckie from Brentwood, TN (Nashville). I love seeing where my readers are from also. Yesterday, I had 7 from India and one from Saudi Arabia. I know that 1 of my Indian readers is my niece who is a missionary there, so I guess she had several of her friends read my post which was about her and the squatty potties of India.

Nanci said...

Canada, Ontario actually, and our licence plate is Nascar88, not my favourite driver but Ernhardt gets me looks all the time.
When we go to the US with that plate, you wouldn't believe how many honks and thumbs up we get.
As we head to Panama City for the winter this year you can bet it will be well received. Great blog Jacqui.

I love the license plates..I like the palm tree with the kids under it too.
I'm from good old California and I live in the Central Vally of Modesto.. I have never lived in any other state. So I guess I can be called a "Valley Girl" or "Cali Girl" LOL
Have a sweet day and hugs, Elizabeth

Angie Burrett said...

Hello: this is such fun seeing where your "followers" are living! I am in England - I live in a small village on the River Tamar - which is the boundary between Devon and Cornwall. It is very beautiful, though we do seem to get a lot of rain - but that can be good because then I can sit and sew!
Today it has rained a lot - so I made plum chutney this morning and then I drove over to my very favourite patchwork shop (Cowslip in Launceston, Cornwall). A very good day! Thank you for a lovely Blog. x

wow! Florida sure does have an array of plates since I lived there. All we had was the orange back then.
I live in NC and we now have quite an array here too. Used to be the only plate you saw was the Wright Bros. plane.
