We are so lucky to have incredible friends who are loyal readers of TNL. Even more exciting , is that there are tons of new friends out there who have been reading as well.
One of the coolest parts of checking our stats is that we get to see where in the world TNL is being viewed. In addition to the US and Canada, we’ve had readers in Hong Kong, Singapore, Tunisia, Brazil, Germany, Italy, Bangladesh, Australia and so many more! We decided to do a blogger tag for fun and maybe some of our new friends can get to know us a bit better.
