Blogging as a past time is far reaching

When I started blogging, it was an exercise in "Can I do this?", "Can I learn this?", "Can I keep it going?," etc. Well, I just blog about whatever pops into this gray topped head of mine. It might be deals at a store or web site. It might be nifty coupons for the thrifty amongst us. It might be something on my heart that bubbles up that I wish to share with someone. It might be my frustration at the political scene. Who knows? Now I just checked the number of hits it has received, and there are now over 4,000. That is in about 2 years. Not many, but it is reaching out.

Recently I added a widget that would track who visits (doesn't identify visitor, just locale). I really find this to be interesting. There are people all over the USA that somehow have found Chat With Vera. In fact, I have found from time to time that Australians, Brits, Scots, Russians, Chinese, etc. have visited. It confounds and humbles me. Here is the latest listing:
  • A visitor from Greensboro, North Carolina arrived from blogger.com and viewed "Chat With Vera" 0 secs ago
  • A visitor from Walnut, California viewed "Chat With Vera: Vera is quoted online......" 2 hours 23 mins ago
  • A visitor from Woodstock, Illinois viewed "Chat With Vera: Vera is quoted online......" 2 hours 26 mins ago
  • A visitor from Van Buren, Arkansas left "Chat With Vera: Tidings of Comfort and Joy" via blogger.com 6 hours 11 mins ago
  • A visitor from Van Buren, Arkansas arrived from havecouponswilltravel.com and viewed "Chat With Vera: Tidings of Comfort and Joy" 6 hours 12 mins ago
  • A visitor from Walnut, California viewed "Chat With Vera: Vera is quoted online......" 15 hours 55 mins ago
  • A visitor from Dallas, Texas viewed "Chat With Vera: Vera is quoted online......" 17 hours 26 mins ago
  • A visitor from Kuala Belait arrived from google.com and viewed "Chat With Vera" 18 hours 54 mins ago
  • A visitor from Streator, Illinois arrived from havecouponswilltravel.com and viewed "Chat With Vera: Tidings of Comfort and Joy" 19 hours 59 mins ago
  • A visitor from San Francisco, California viewed "Chat With Vera: Vera is quoted online......" 23 hours 46 mins ago
Now, if you are as geographically challenged as I, you are wondering where in the world is Kuala Belait? So for your information and mine, I looked it up:
Kuala Belait is located close to the western border of Brunei with the Malaysian State of Sarawak at 114.18ΒΊE longtitude and 4.59ΒΊN latitude. The town center is bounded by the South China Sea to the north, the Belait River to the west and south and the suburbs of Kampong Sungai Pandan and Kampong Mumong to the east and south-east respectively.
