I love my readers. No, that’s not a slang term for my bifocals (see below) that I have to wear to read virtually everything, it’s for 2 different things.
Reader # 1 ~ It always interests me as to who is reading my words. This site has some statistic things that, at times, can help determine where readers come from. I looked over the past 10 days of data and it seems it can only tell about 50% of the total readers locations. Of the places it could determine, over the past 10 days, I’ve had people read from 17 different states and 12 different countries. I’m a simple guy and that seems incredible to me. Some of the busiest states are Texas, California and North Carolina. I get lots of readers from Canada to my north and as far away as Kuwait. I’ve had a person as close as 30 miles away from me, (from Wooster, OH) on here as well. Never be afraid to ask a question or read a comment ~ I will attempt to respond.
Reader #2 ~ Google Reader ~ I love this little device. I have almost every link (along my right border) going through a Google Reader, so I can read all of my favorites quickly and easily, soon after something is posted. These go through an RSS Reader, I believe. But, I also have Google Readers set up to daily scan the vastness of the Internet looking for news stories or blog posts on things that I want to read. Some of those are “Heart Transplant”, various local politicians, support groups, etc.
