World map

Today’s map of visitors (thanks to Blogflux) may not show a record number, but it is typical of most days, with an .
   I find these quite fascinating, as I desire for this , and indeed, all my sites, to reach a audience. The reality is that so far, the audience of this blog tends to come from English-speaking countries, with some exceptions in Europe and Asia. It can be compared to an earlier map from February 2006, which shows that I have not been able to hang on to visitors from Africa, South America and other countries in Asia.
   Admittedly, there were visitors coming by after the blog was introduced on various services around February 1, but they may well have found content here that didn’t encourage repeat visits.
   Back in January, I had stories not just on branding but in , and with my unfamiliarity with , refrained from adding too many personal notes. I imagine this is a pattern that many blogs see: a commencement with hard-hitting posts that spurred the original establishment of the blog; but then a sense of comfort, and familiarity with regular readers, sets in. Life also moves on, with my TV spot, and the progress of my work. Commenting on others’ blogs, too, has kept me occupied.
   Exceptions that spring to mind include many blogs, such as CorpWatch, plus How to Save the World.
   So how am I going with blogging? Comments are welcome. Is the mixture between serious and personal good, or has the balance been upset?
   Before I forget, I need to make a few quick thanks to people who have been making me look sharp on television. Remember those credits in the 1960s and 1970s? Unfortunately, they won’t put ‘Jack Yan’s wardrobe by Botany 500’ on Good Morning, mainly because I am not a star, so:

Suits by Mandatory and Escena
Boots by Dayton Boots
Shirts by Silkbody and Mandatory
Hair by Joanne Smith/Balliage

Thanks to Fi and Clare at Mandatory for me.

Jack, You are doing fine! I enjoy reading your personal writings as well as learn from your more informative ones.

I think people are tired of the too impersonal stuff so something inteligent coupled with some personality equals 'life' which means yours is a living piece of work. You go bro!
Thanks, Amanda! Such awesome feedback! I have just popped by your new blog, too!

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
