Do You Know Someone from Greenland?


Do You Know Someone from Greenland?

Do you know someone from Greenland? Please write them if you do
and tell them that I need someone from Greenland who will view
my blog for me so I can get it lit up on my map;
for on my statistics page it leaves a shocking gap.
Italy is lit up and the rest of Europe, too.
Mexico and Canada and Poland and Peru.
(But not, I fear, Afghanistan or Chad or Katmandu.)

I have fans in India, in England and in China.
Readers in the States from Oregon to Carolina.
Africa, The Emirates, in Russia and Japan,
and even in Australia, I have one loyal fan.
But no one from that Island has ever viewed my blog.
It seems that my well-oiled machine is missing that one cog.
I know that Greenland’s icy—that it’s Iceland that is green,
and perhaps that oxymoron may make Greenlanders mean.
Yet I’d think in winter, when there is so much snow
the Internet’s the sort of place that they would want to go!!!
My blog may not be noted for being really hot,
and if they want X-Rated, my blog is not the spot.
But if you’ve friends in Greenland, please tell them this for me:
my blog may not be steamy, but it’s guaranteed frost-free!

(And while you are at it, please have them stop by Shawn Bird’s blog at She’s missing Greenland as well!)

The Prompt: Road Tripping—‘Tis the season for road trips — if time and money were out of the equation, what car-based adventure would you go on? (If you don’t or can’t drive, any land-based journey counts.) . . . I interpreted the prompt loosely this time, more as a road trip of the mind. After almost 18 months of blogging, I keep noticing that very big block of the world called Greenland that still sits blankly staring at me, resisting my blog. When Shawn wrote to me after reading my blog about statistics, (read it here) saying that she was waiting for a viewer from Greenland, I knew that was my cue. So although I doubt anyone from outside has ever taken a road trip there, if you’ve journeyed there by some other means, please drop a clue to any friends you may have who live there to take a mind trip to our blogs and shut us up!!!!

    Yes, please. I’ve even written poems about Greenland, used key words naming Greenland in assorted languages. I am beginning to doubt that there is internet in Groenland aka Kalaallit Nunaat aka Grønland. 🙂

      Hi Mark. Thanks for visiting. I’ve tried 5 times to post on your site and hope the last one posted as “anonymous” went through. It wouldn’t accept my WordPress url. I’ll check and if my comment isn’t there tomorrow, I’ll email you…Thanks for your offer. If you can get me a Greenland viewer, you’ll win a prize!!! Loved your blog. Spent a long time there…Judy

    That’s a funny way of pleading..haha! English blogs are not widely read in greenland thats why you find it rare to have visits from up here. Btw, im dani and i live in nuuk, greenland:-)

      Thanks, Dani. Look tomorrow for a poem in honor of you on my blog!!! It looks so good to find that big chunk of our map no longer gleamingly white on my stats page! Today Greenland, tomorrow the world!! I really enjoyed your blog, by the way. Let’s forge some understanding between Greenland and Mexico! Judy

    It’s so great to see your wish coming true in the comments section! It’s one of the wonderfully unexpected sides of blogging that we get so many international visitors. I certainly wasn’t expecting that when I started out.

      I agree. I was surprised at that, too. Unfortunately, they no longer show us the map in stats that tells what countries people have visited from from the start of our blogs. I loved that..

          But it is just for the day…not for the entire life of your blog. I’d like to see the countries where I’ve never had a viewer. That is unless they’ve changed it back. Hope they did.
