Land of Mystery

For as long as I've had Mapcluster on my site, I've been fascinated by the absence of activity in the old Soviet Union. I've wondered, for a year now, when I might get a hit in that mysteriously cyberless world. Well, this week it happened.

There is one tiny red dot on my Mapcluster map tucked away in the Russian Federation. Somewhere east of Kazakhstan, north of China, and west of Mongolia, a lone blogger clicked in for just a moment. There was no message so I'm left to imagine who this rare bird might be. Whoever he or she may be, if you see this know that you are acknowledged. I saw you and you were the first to start filling up that sadly blank part of my map.

Welcome.

Oddly enough last night I got my first visit from someone in the former USSR. This person stayed for 3 minutes before moving on. Connections like this fascinate me.

I've had some hits in Mongolia and China, but now I have to go and look and see if I have any there! What a marvelously strange and fascinating world we live in.

Good for you, Annie. I have had a few Russian visitors over the years, but very few.

God bless you and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Isn't it fun to discover where readers of our blogs come from? I love that. I've had some from something called the Thai Flight Crew but as it is in the Thai language I have no idea what the blog is about.

A lone star in a fathomless sky..

So interesting. Blogging's awesome. Imagine: we'd never have met each other in real life, yet in a way, all us bloggers are sharing in experiences and ideas and knowledge and dreams. It's amazazazazing!
