Gotta Catch ’em All…Carmen Sandiego Style


We like stories. We like to tell stories, we like to read stories, and we like to share stories. It’s simple. At the end of the day, stories are all we have. Stories are how we relate to one another. It’s how we learn, it’s how we tell loved ones about our day, and it’s how our legacy will survive us into the distant future.

Because of our passion for stories, we have a small, simple goal: share stories and storytellers with every nation on earth. The simpler the goal, the more achievable it is, after all 😉 We’ve got a goal. Now, we have to measure our progress towards achieving that goal.

So we’ve tracked movement on our interactive map, showing us where the views are coming from. This in itself is really cool, because maps are cool and this one is showing us where people are physically viewing our page. It is showing us where we have made even the slightest impact, oftentimes in places we’ve only dreamed of visiting. Using the data collected from the map, we’ve created a basic yet awesome spreadsheet with every nation on earth, and have begun checking them off one by one.


Today we are happy to announce that we  just passed the “100 nation” benchmark we set for ourselves. It’s a nice, round number, and makes us seem very successful. (Full Disclosure: 18 of those countries we have collected only received “1” view, but at least it’s someone!)

Thank you Botswana for being lucky number 100, and thank the other 99 for your viewership!! Let us know what stories you liked, or share your regional stories with us!


To those of you still in grey, be prepared. We’re coming for you, and our Poke-Balls are ready.

  1. It is fun finding out where one is read! I haven’t counted my nations total, but probably will now that I’ve seen your post today. My ultimate goal had been to have at least one follower on each continent, including Antarctica. As far as I can tell, I still need that one person on Antarctica, though a doctor who treated during a hospitalization last year assured me he had a scientist friend there that he’d contact with the hope he’d follow me. All that said, congratulations on reaching 100 nations!
