As of Monday (Jul 9), WordPress.com, which hosts my website, showed a full display from where people accessed my site, and not just the top 10 countries. Thought I give you a look cause it’s quite eye opening, and flattering. From what I can tell, the visitor stats are pretty typical of a day on my site. At 122 countries from 15,269 page views, I really do have visitors from pretty much ALL over the world!
When someone starts a blog, one of the first and/or big question they have to answer is What is your blog going to be about?
For a lot of people, that’s a fairly narrow answer, like football, Transformers, the environment, etc. Even “everything about” a topic, like Twilight, isn’t all that broad. A blog on a theme becomes a focal point for something and aim to bring readers to them on that topic, like a a city in a state, where other blogs on the same topic are other cities, and each post is a new building in its city. Readers looking for something else would go elsewhere, like to another state or city.
For me, it was different. I chose to have a blog about pretty much anything and everything.
So why did I do this and how was I going to make it “succeed”?
Back on Feb 25 2009, I created a Hello Kitty / Sanrio collage for Facebook tagging meme games. In creating it, I had to collect a whole bunch of images of the characters. I was missing a few, as told to me by Commenter Jenna M. But since I have gone to find them (and discovered a few more!) and have them, here they are for your use! And Jenna M., whoever you are, this one’s for you! 🙂
These are 256 x 256 pixels, which is large enough for most icons and avatar requirements. They’ve been resized, colour enhanced to have a bit more “punch”, and had as much pixelation as possible. This set is more complete than the Hello Kitty / Sanrio site. It has larger icons as they have 228 x 228 pixels and mine are 256×256. And these have better colour quality. Given all that, I dare say this is the best Hello Kitty / Sanrio collection of avatars and buddy icons on the Internet! You try and find as good an avatar as some of the ones here unless people steal them, which I know they will. But that’s OK. I’m all for sharing. Quite shockingly, for something as popular as Hello Kitty / Sanrio, I could hardly find anything for some characters among all the Google results. I had to drastically improve what was present for some characters to make them as good as they are here!
