I don’t really have a reason, but I might as well do a semiformal survey because I feel like today might be a good day for one.
Ramble of the Day
So, the question of my semiformal survey: Where is everyone from, anyway?
I ask for a few reasons, some pretty obvious. For starters, I’d like to know my audience a little bit better, and which football teams are near you and/or relevant. I tend to pick out British and American news, knowing there are a lot of people from the nations. I’m fully aware, though, that there are a ton of you from elsewhere.
Also, I’m just curious. No need to tell me the latitude and longitude; share as much as you want, from cities, regions, and countries, and feel free to define “from” however you want. Maybe it’s where you grew up, maybe it’s where you live — whatever fits your fancy. Feel free to even start a dialogue about where “from” means; I’ve lived in the same area all my life, so I can’t contribute, but do what you want.
Anyway, it’s just a way for me to get to know you all a little bit better, so feel free to go ahead and answer. Looking forward to learning some things.
tl;dr: I’m curious about how geographically diverse this group is, so tell me where you’re from!
