Colour the world – Iceland

I’m sure I’m not alone in getting excited when my blog is viewed in a new country!  Today I am excited because I have reached Iceland… so thank you to my Icelandic reader for finding me!

I am especially excited to colour Iceland in on my world map because Iceland is somewhere I would very much like to visit.  It’s actually number one on my list!

Resulting from this I took a bit of time to investigate the populations of some of the smaller countries (mostly islands) that my blog has reached.

Population figures from 2017

Iceland 338,349
Barbados 285,719
Tonga 108,020
Aruba 105,264
Jersey 100,080
Isle of Man 84,287
Bermuda 65,441
Guernsey 63,026

Right now the world population is over 7.6 billion
. . .  that’s 7,600,000,000!
so each of these countries is less than 0.005% of total population
with Bermuda and Guernsey less than 0.001% each
and somehow my blog has been read in each of these places!

    I think the key is to get someone from Greenland, because it takes up so much area on the WordPress map! Sadly Antarctica doesn’t seem to have made it on the map – you never know when some lonely person at a research station might need a little poetry to help get them through the chilly nights (-47ºC at Vostok Station at the moment).
