At the bottom of my blog, I've got a gizmo called "Live Traffic Feed" by some company called FEEDJIT. It tells me the city and state of individuals who visit my blog. That's all it tells, not who they are, why they come, or what they do here.
Recently they've been beta testing a new service called "Live Feed" which I can put on and it lets me know when people come and go, and where they came from, i.e., Blogger, Google, Nicole's blog, Bonnie's blog, etc. Still don't tell me who they are, which is fine, but this beta version tells what people were searching for if they came through Google. I was amused yesterday when someone arrived after googling "Where to buy crystal meth Near Philadelphia"! Of course, this led them to my whining post from a few months ago when I had a bad cold and the pharmacist wouldn't let me have my remedy of choice because people use it to make crystal meth.
Anyway, where I was going with the title of this post is here: Lots and lots of people visit this blog and a few faithful visitors leave comments which I read and enjoy, even if I don't usually respond to them. There are people from many cities and countries who are utterly mysterious to me; I've no idea how they came upon my blog, why they read it, what they think of it, any of that.
Daily, and I do mean daily, I get at least one visit from someone in Bear, Delaware. I don't think I know anyone in Delaware anywhere, much less in Bear. I went a-huntin' and discovered that Bear, like most of Delaware, is south of Wilmington, and it is in New Castle County. The closest quilt shop appears to be Lavender and Lace (no website, apparently), in Newark (note to self -- check it out next time we head South on I-95).
Do I know you, Bear? Do you ever comment? Would you, if begged, she groveled?
I'm so curious.
