Whole world in our hands

One popular widget here on the rain is the cluster map widget. I got one, although mine is not so world in our handsimpressive as some others I have seen here. Every time I go on a blog which has the Clustrmap, I can't help but click on it. I find myself absolutely amazed by what I see. Now remember, I am new to activerain, and new to blogging. I am not, however new to the internet. But, this is mind boggling to me.

This is some of what I have found:

Kim Daugherty, McKinney TX REALTOR, Broker has had visitors from Croatia, Japan, Ethiopia, among a host of others.

Midori Miller-Daytona Beach Florida Real Estate Trainer has so many visitors on hers the maps look like they are covered with red gummi worms! 13 visitors from Russia, 10 people from Qatar, where is that??? and 1 visitor from Tanzania.

Active Brad, wow, the people that are looking at your blog from all over the world, you have quite a fan club! But seriously Brad, you need to boost your presence in the United Republic of Tanzania, only one person from there has been on your blog.

That British Agent, Sheldon Neal, is developing a following in Korea and Cyprus.

As for me, I am new to this as I said. I just put the map on my blog page, and so far, have only had visitors from the U.S. and Canada.

But, my point here is... we are being seen, and I mean really being seen. The world just got a whole lot smaller. Also, I am wondering why someone from Cyprus would be on my blog page? Just a thought. And more importantly, I hope that if they do stop by and read my blog, they would say HELLO!

A bigger point, we really need to be careful how we put ourselves out there, best foot foreward and all. You just never know who will end up on your post!

<-----Look who landed on your post!!!

You're so right Andrea, you just never know who will stop on by. We open the door, and anyone can just walk right in.

As far as cluster maps go, I had one on my blog page, but I recently deleted it. I was, however, amazed at  the locations of some of my visitors.

The world is much smaller than it use to be and amen to your point about being careful about how we present ourselves.  We have to remember that what we post with our names on it is out there . . .

Andrea, that is a really cool widget.  I need to figure out how to set one up.

Craig, LOL, look what the cat drug in! Seriously, why did you delete the widget? I am mesmerized by this particular widget!

Bruce & Mary, that is ever so true. I know that I am a bit ... er... colorful at times, but always try to be true to myself and above all, "do no harm".

Pat, oh, it is so easy! Call or email if you have a problem.

Case in point about small world, someone in Europe was looking to reach my husband. (We do not have the same last name). They knew I was a realtor, actually knew how to spell my name, which might be easier than his, and voila, found all my contact information!! Or I took out clients (who have an accepted offer and woooo hoooo inspections tomorrow, now we are in CT, he lived in the same town in MA as I did when we were wee-sters, and was actually best friends with my next door neighbors. WAY SMALL!!!
