Everybody loves a frog (and my plan for world domination)

A quick note to thank every one for stopping by today.

I should have known that a Thought of the Day about Jim Henson and Kermie  would do well, but I was pleasantly surprised to log on this evening and see the spikes in today’s stats. [Drumroll please…] I’m happy to report that today ritaLOVEStoWRITE had its very best day ever! By 7:40pm the site had reached a whopping 153 hits, for an all time total of over 5,000 hits! Whoot!

Here’s a map showing where all those hits are coming from…

Map reflecting all time hits.

Actually this is about a week old. Ghana, El Salvador,  Suriname, Algeria, Oman, Kuwait and Reunion have joined since then. I’m learning a lot about geography. (Reunion is an island nation off the east coast of Madagascar, btw.)

Personally, I would love to see a few more of the countries on this map get filled in. Not just because it is cool to see the continents fill up, or because it would give me a RISK (game) sense of satisfaction to pick up Greenland so I would have all of “North America,” but because I have something to say.

If I could actually send a message to the world it would be similar to the advice Kermit gave in a Men’s Health interview in November of last year.

  1. Challenge yourself to help others.
  2. Accept people for who they are.
  3. Roll with life’s ups and downs.

I would add

4. Live peacefully and with joy in your heart. And
5. Do something (small or large) to help save the planet every day.

So, thanks for stopping by the blog, and if you happen to know some one who might like ritaLOVEStoWRITE please send them a link and invite them to stop by (especially if they’re in Greenland.)
