I thought I would do a different kind of post today.

You see, I sometimes confuse one blogger for another blogger especially when they are new to my blog.

I only realized today that a blogger buddy whom I had been interacting with for some time is actually another blogger with the same name and from a totally different country! One is from Poland and the other from Belgium!

I thought they were both one and the same person!

This has actually happened a couple of times, particularly namesake bloggers with similar blog templates.

So, what I would love for you to do for me today is to just say "Hello" in your language and tell me which country you are from in the comments.

And if you are from the US, it would be cool if you could mention your state too.

To start the ball rolling ...

Apa Khabar?  I am from Malaysia.

Well, it appears from many of the comments I received that some of you thought  I was American and lived in the US!

In case you are wondering where Malaysia is...

  2. Hello Veronica Lee,
    I'm Bill and I live in Dungloe, Ireland which is on the west coast of Ireland.

  3. Hello Veronica!! Betty from Phoenix, Arizona in the great United States of America!! Cute idea to do this! Now I'm curious who your Poland friend is as I'm 100% Polish. I will have to check back in your comments and see if that person commented :)


  4. İ'm from Turkey... İ'm wondering the other countries my blog

  5. Merhaba :-)) Türkiye'den sevgiler:-)

  6. Hello Veronica!

    I am from Italy 🇮🇪
    I've understood you don't live in the US ... and you are from Malaysia.


    Have a nice week!


  7. I am David and I live in Ontario, Canada. You will be happy to know, Veronica, that not only did I know where Malaysia is located in the world, I visited your country a few short years ago.

  8. Servus und Hallo, liebe Veronica! :-)
    I realized from the beginning that you live in Malaysia. (I could read it in your blog profile - and I did, because I was curious, for example because of your blog title and the term "ramen", which I associate with Asian food ;-))
    I think you already know that I live in Austria, very close to our capital Vienna. But I'm happy to tell you again :-DDD
    All the best,

  9. Oh, gees....I think you remember me, no?? Lin...from Chicago in the US. :)

  10. Great idea! 😊

    Bună ziua! (Hello! / Good afternoon! / Good day!) Bună! (Hi!)
    I'm from Romania, Europe.
    I wish you a wonderfull week! 😊

  11. Hei!
    Jeg er fra Norge !

    I have visited your beautiful country :)

  12. I'm Carol @ Comfort Spring and live in Florida, USA.


  13. Yeah, I know about the name problem, lol. Well, you just live "close" to Florida, at the East end of the USA. I moved 9 hours East from California, but not quite Florida:):) I remember the word "apa" from my parents (who spoke Indonesian:)). Thank you for sharing the stunning beach with All Seasons.
    Regretfully, I think I have to start going over to a simple copy and paste perma link in your comment, like the rest of the wordpress people. I'll explain more in the post on Sunday
    Right now underneath your post there's an ad "stop your wordpress headaches and pay just $147 (per year)" - that would even be a greater headache for me!

  14. Good to meet you. I am from the US and live in South Dakota. It is on the northern prairie, an environment very different from your south sea paradise.

  15. Hello from North Carolina, on the east coast of the United States!

    I have two blogs, Jackie's Photos Blog where I originally posted photos from our mainly cruise holidays, and now my Wordless Wednesday posts.
    My main blog is my cat blog where I post my Friday Flashbacks in their memory.

  38. Hello Veronica
    This is a great way to get to know your readers

    I’m Cathy and live a little bit south of you in Melbourne. Have visited Malaysia and even lived there at one time (many years ago)
    Take care

  39. I live in Belgium, in Waterloo near Brussels where the European Union has its buildings.

  40. I have a couple of ladies who link up that I confuse, too, so I can relate.

    This is a great idea! I like to know where people are from to better understand their gardens and weather and such, but not all make that info known on their blogs.

    I am Betty from New Zealand, originally from Kansas.

    I'm happy to see you at 'My Corner of the World' this week! Thanks for linking up.

  41. lol, I guess that is one reason I use my alias when I post.

  42. Namaste! Pranaam! Sat Sri Akal! from India Veronica 💗

  43. Hi Veronica, I am Valerie from Hope Valley (don't you love the sound of that?) in South Australia, Australia

  44. Hello Veronica. I knew somehow that you were from Malaysia. I love having blogging friends from all over. It is one of the best parts of blogging and a great way to learn a bit of geography and world history and culture. Thank you for your posts from Malaysia. I’m from the State of Oregon in the Northwest Corner of the USA. Since we retired from work, we have been traveling In the winter and for the last ten years have been in Florida for about half the year. (But we stayed home in Oregon this last time because of the pandemic.). Florida is all the way across the country , over 5,000 miles.

  45. Alissa here. I live in Omaha, Nebraska USA. It's not by anything really. No ocean, or mountains. Just grassland. Omaha is a small city that thinks it's really big.

  46. I too have gotten bloggers confused over the years! You were so easy to remember because of my very own Veronica Leigh. But here I am - I am Melanie aka Mellie from the bayous of Louisiana, USA. We are right along the coast of LA less than 100 miles from the Gulf of Mexico.

  47. Wow, Veronica, with over 2,000 followers, I'm amazed that you don't get more names mixed up. I would never be able to keep track.
