What countries are represented by our posters?

We've recently had a new poster from Cyprus. I know we have a loyal group from the U.K. and certainly a prime poster or two from France. We have one for sure from Scotland... Which other countries do people hail from?

Great question!

I don't mean to spoil the fun - and I hope all of the people who are from these countries will say "Canada here!" or whatever, but I just checked our stats for September, and here's who was here. The order is the number of "pages served."

Canada

United Kingdom

Finland

Australia

Japan

France

Uruguay

Singapore

Netherlands

Belgium

Germany

Denmark

US Military

Russian Federation

Sweden

New Zealand (Aotearoa)

South Africa

Austria

Italy

Brazil

Greece

Israel

Cyprus

I haven't checked the stats in about six months -- this is just for the message board, not the main site, but we had 18,000"unique visitors" last month. That's not one person sitting here clicking 18,000 times; that's 18,000 PEOPLE. Gosh. Probably half were checking up on Volochkova, but hey. Not bad.

So who here is from Austria, Germany, Brazil, Israel, France, Russia, etc?

Adrienne, you live in an area dear to my heart. 1. It's Anne of Green Gables country (after she grew older and moved from PWI). 2. It's the original site of the Acadians, an incredible group of people in terms of keeping their traditions alive against the odds (of colonialism). 3. Halifax may well be the most environmentally conscientious community in the world, banning public use of fragrance and phasing out the use of commercial pesticides on lawns. 4. My dearest ever ballet teacher founded Halifax's ballet company many years ago. Beautiful country you hail from.

US over here, i'm not sure if i'm boring or not. How can any place be boring if u havent seen it yet? To me, every place has something to show you; something u can learn. i'll have to visit cananda someday (and i probably will cause i wanna see the aurora borealis)

oh and good old new jersey east coast!! so i got sea gulls. they could be interesting. :)

Awww, thanks. I'm actually from Cape Breton, which is dear to my heart, but going to school in Halifax. I'm currently a student at Dalhousie University, which is where Lucy Maud Montgomery graduated from, and Redmond College from Anne of the Island is based on it.

(Oh, yeah, and Anne was actually born in Bolingbroke, Nova Scotia. As far as I know it's a fictional town. I'm obviously a big Anne of Green Gables fan-- this happens when you are a strange, precocious red-haired girl-child, whether you want it to or not.)

I was neither red-headed or freckled, but I loved Anne of Green Gables and still do. I have always wanted to visit the area where the story is set. But, for now, my vacations are always around wherever my daughter goes for an SI. However, maybe one day...

By the way, being from Oklahoma, all the places that the international posters are from sound very exciting to me! (No, I don't know anyone who lives in a teepee. Yes, I've been in a tornado. And yes, I do have a few native americans in my family tree!) :grinning:

Hi, I'm from middle Georgia and that's really exciting, I can tell you! By the way, I love Anne of Green Gables, too. I even gave my third daughter Anne as a middle name- with an "e" of course. It's more distinguished that way!
