Today I reached 10,000 views on this blog – a pretty nice one year milestone for an old retired guy living in Florida who tries to write poetry (not very well) and sundry other posts.

Ten thousand times in the last year someone in the world visited my blog and clicked on something.  That’s pretty good traffic considering I am not on any social media, have no Facebook page or Twitter account.

While I am pleased to have reached this milestone I am prouder still of the number of countries where these visitors reside – 85 countries over the past year.

Countries ranging from Jordan, Iraq and Palestine, Saudi Arabia to Bangladesh, Pakistan, India, Russia, the U.K., Italy, the Netherlands, Brazil, Argentina, Costa Rica, Korea and Japan, Australia and New Zealand.

It’s nice to have so many readers in countries other than my own.  See if your flag is on the list!

Sincerest thanks to those of you who come by to visit – I hope you continue to visit and enjoy.

Best regards.

About toritto

I was born during year four of the reign of Emperor Tiberius Claudius on the outskirts of the empire in Brooklyn. I married my high school sweetheart, the girl I took to the prom and we were together for forty years until her passing in 2004. We had four kids together and buried two together. I had a successful career in Corporate America (never got rich but made a living) and traveled the world. I am currently retired in the Tampa Bay metro area and live alone. One of my daughters is close by and one within a morning’s drive. They call their pops everyday. I try to write poetry (not very well), and about family. Occasionally I will try a historical piece relating to politics. :-)
