The Proper Way To Drink Coca-Cola, a little piece that I tossed off one day when I couldn't think of anything else to write about. As of today, it has had 8,559 page views, which is about six times more than my second-most popular post. People from all over the world have viewed that post; I have been constantly amazed at the amount of searching for coke-related terms that has led people to my blog.
So, I must admit, it would be very tempting for me to write another post about Coca-Cola, which sometimes comes packaged in a coke bottle, since I can see on my Feedjit gadget (recommended for any blogger) specifically which search words have led people to Growing Up In Waldron. Now certainly, I enjoy a glass of coke as much as the next person, but to write a post specifically to attract large numbers of people to this blog would be wrong.
Of course people all over the world are drinking coke. Our friends in China often enjoy a refreshing can of 可口可樂 . In Russia, it's fun to head down to the corner drug store for an ice cold Кока-Кола. In Japan, many shoppers take a break to enjoy their コカ・コーラ. If you hop on over to Korea, you'll be asking for 코카콜라 . In Arab regions, whenever you come in off the desert, you'll want to sit down with a nice glass of كوكاكول. And, should you ever find yourself in a place where Marathi is spoken, you, like me, might have no idea where you are, but you'll feel better if you can get someone to bring you a bottle of कोका-कोला.
I'm not real sure how they serve Coca-Cola in all those places, maybe they just serve a can of coke, but if anyone over there needs suggestions, I'll refer you to my previous post. I hope it will make sense to you and not be Κόκα κόλα, which is Greek to me.
No, the purpose of this post about Coca-Cola (It's the Real Thing) is not to blatantly increase my number of page views. No, not at all. I just want to share with you the tremendous interest that Coca-Cola holds with people all across the world.
I just read recently that, in honor of the Summer Olympics of 2012, Coke is going to distribute cans with the Coca-Cola logo written in other languages from around the globe. That's what is pictured above. And that's great! If there's anything that might interest people more than Coca-Cola, its the 2012 Summer Olympics.
