Somehow this blog keeps track of the home countries of its visitors, and displays them for me on a map. This is very cool.
Yesterday, I was astonished to learn that I had 10 views from New Zealand. Now how did that happen? Am I catching on in New Zealand? (Judging by the sales figures for my books, I am not catching on anywhere.) Are there really ten people in faraway New Zealand who even know I exist?
Well, in case any of y’all come back, here’s a shout-out: “Kiwis, ahoy!” I’ve never been to your beautiful country, but I was absolutely fascinated by moas and tuataras before I was three feet tall, and I still am. Fascinated by moas and tuataras, that is–I’m not three feet tall anymore.

Hey Lee. I’n not a Kiwi but an Aussie. NZ is kind of a suburb of Australia. That should get any Kiwis reading to respond 🙂

If you’d like to see what I have to say about the man I consider Australia’s greatest writer, see my post in the archives, “Fading into Obscurity.”

Is this a paid subject or did you customize it yourself?
Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s
uncommon to look a nice weblog like this one today..
