OT: Where You At?

New, 76 comments

A little about where we're from, and we want to know where the readership is holding it down.

Some may feel more compelled to identify based on where they were born, but as a new writer here at BTBS I was curious to know where my new teammates were located. Personally, I'm from Cambridge, ON, Canada (about an hour west of Toronto) but recently moved to Vancouver, BC, Canada.

Mostly I was curious if I had any other writers within a few hours to catch a Mariners game with (no such luck), but as I polled the staff I noticed quite the East Coast bias. The map below shows where we're all located (without names..."beware of saber-stalkers" was the first thing they told me when i signed up), with a listing below in case the Google Map isn't clear.

Canada (1) - Vancouver, BC
Israel (1) - West Bank
USA (13) - St. Paul, MN; Bethlehem, PA; Winston-Salem, NC; New York, NY; Providence, RI; Chicago, IL; Somerset, MA; Danbury, CT; San Francisco, CA; White Plains, NY; Washington, DC; Kansas City, MO; Raleigh, NC

So where is the readership from? Do you fancy yourself a Mr. 3-0-5, or are you 6-1-9 (booyakah)? Any internationals to accompany our Israeli writer? Any fellow Canadians frequenting BtB?

If we get a good response I'll post a follow-up map showing the readership as well.
