    Did you all see the recent video clip of Emily who said she had sold to over 300 countries!!! I thought that's an awful lot of countries so I went onto 'google' as you do, to find out how many countries there actually are in the world. Guess what? There are 196. Go figure... Soon after this another video of the same Emily appeared stating she had now sold to 106 countries. Or was it 126 countries. Whatever the revised number was it was significantly lower than the original 300 countries. I myself have sold to 22 countries and 26 USA states, of which I was extremely proud. However I've a long way to go to catch up with Emily, lol...

    How do you know how many countries you've sold to? Do you keep some sort of a record or is there somewhere on Tes dashboard that keeps this information?

    Yes I keep a record. I have a world map where I mark the countries I have sold to and I have a map of north America showing the states. Those states I have sold to, I get great joy out of colouring them in. You may think it's sad. However I have always been intrigued as to where in the world my resources are actually going to. My students are equally impressed.

    I should have said that my students are also interested knowing where in the world other kids are doing the same work as them. I am semi-retired and teach privately from 2 ½ years to 15 year olds.

    If you click on the resource on the 'Sales' page, a drop down with information appears @hoppytimes ... Theres no other way of knowing but a map graphic would be cool- not necessary but cool :) I sold a resource to Japan this morning!

    Yes, I too get a little buzz when I see the different countries sold to. So far United Kingdom (of course), USA, Egypt, New Zealand, Australia. I'd like some Asian countries!
