Erika of the blog Author Erika Kind has been so generous to nominate Dear Kitty. Some blog for the Versatile Blogger Award.

Thank you so much, my dear blogging friend!

Here are the rules:

• First of all, give the link and name of the blogger who nominated you, in your post.
• Secondly, tell 7 facts about yourself.

3. Why do I, when asked to tell seven things about myself in an award nomination blog post, often have statistics of my blog?

Because the national flags of the various countries where visits come from make the blog post colourful. And because these statistics are always different from earlier statistics.
