For now, I'll begin with this tidbit:
I'm based in the U.S. and the URL for my blog is officially http://fm-cab.blogspot.com. However, if you are in another country and you type in the URL for Forced Migration Current Awareness, you will automatically be redirected to a country-specific domain. I learned this recently when I was in Vienna, and the URL for my blog showed up as http://fm-cab.blogspot.co.at. Google (which owns Blogger) does this in order to be able to more easily manage content locally. In the event it receives a take-down notice in one country, it can comply without affecting what is viewed in other countries. Apparently, if you are outside the U.S., you can bypass the automatic redirect by typing in http://fm-cab.blogspot.com/ncr (NCR = no country redirect).
So any readers out there who think I am located in their countries - I'm not! The URL for my blog just makes it seem like I am.
