VerveEarth

It’s always nice to feel recognized so I was delighted to receive VerveEarth’s invitation for this blog to represent Boston on their world map of the Internet. The widget appears below.

One of the things that consistently amazes me is how people all over the world read this blog. A techno-savvy friend turned me on to StatCounterLocs, a site that tracks where in the world people are when they read this content. They’re from all over! In fewer than six months, people from six continents have read this blog.

Does anyone know someone in Antarctica who they could email and ask to sign on to Seeds for Sanctuary? That would make it seven continents.

Forty-nine of fifty states of the United States are represented. Does anyone know someone from Wyoming who they could email and ask to sign on? That would make it fifty states.

I know much is made these days of our global village, so I was shocked at myself to discover how little I know about world geography.

Anybody know how many countries Africa has?

I didn’t.

It’s 57.

People from five of those 57 read Seeds for Sanctuary.

Truth is, I want people from all 57 African nations reading Seeds.

According to Wikipedia, there are 192 countries in the world, and one non-country (Vatican City). There are Seeds for Sanctuary readers in 71 of those countries. I find it thrilling.
