Can We Have Our TURKEY Tag Back Please?


Sunday 01 December, 2013 by Uncle Spike


Like most folk, I like to view posts about my home country. In New Zealand, you look under the ‘tag’ New Zealand, in Singapore, likewise… BUT here in Turkey we can either search under ‘Türkiye’ for domestic posts, or for anyone travelling here, we would tend to look under the tag of ‘Turkey’.

However, over the past 2 months (first Canada then the USA), it has taken me ages to find posts about our country… instead all I came across was pictures of the bird Turkey, a plate of food or a flippin’ pumpkin! Granted, most bloggers chose to use the tag Thanksgiving – and thank you for that 🙂 but others just went for the Turkey option.

Please, please, please… can we have our tag back now please?

Rant over

Çok teşekkür ederim – Thank you very much

P.S. I also happen to be a big fan of Thanksgiving
– this was just my attempt at cynical comedy 🙂

  3. Hi Uncle S, I have nominated you for a Sunshine Award! Have a look at my blog to see how to accept it. If you don’t want it, no worries. You are still a ray of sunshine!


  4. To be fair, I actually had a photo of the country, Turkey, in my Thanksgiving blog 😀


  5. Just googled it – top pick Tesco Christmas Turkey – sorry Spike Wiki Turkey (the country) came third!

      Ah, but we dont have Xmas Day… simple solution.

      Reminds me of my old neighbour in Yorkshire, a semi-hermit who had never left the small village in 70 years. When I first came to Turkey in the mid 90’s his only comment was “So what do hey eat at Christmas?” lol


...waiting to hear from you...
