Wow, reviewing my website statistics for 2017, I find that fully half my visitors are coming from outside the United States, indeed from all over the world!

What’s interesting about this is the distribution. Sure, large numbers of you hail from the UK, Canada, and Australia, the obvious places for English readers, but surprising numbers of you are from India, Sweden, Romania, Germany, Indonesia, France, places I would not have expected.

I don’t know where you all are hearing about me, and I don’t know what to say, except welcome, thank you, and please come back.

Oh, and of course, happy new year!
