Where would writers be without readers! We are readers, we want readers, we love readers.
A great perk in blogging is being able to connect instantly with readers all over the world. They can read your work, respond to you, criticize, congratulate, laugh, cry, learn, teach…….all from their home to yours. Fascinating.
I have not been blogging very long and never thought much about who might read my posts. My family, of course. My friends, sure. But……Wow! Readers in more than 50 countries are checking my site! 🇩🇪🇺🇸🇫🇷🇪🇸🇮🇹🇬🇧🇷🇺🇰🇷🇯🇵
I write about all kinds of things, as my blog title indicates. It’s gratifying to know that my Musings are interesting to such a diverse group of readers. A school student in Angola, for instance, might look in to see what’s on my mind regarding a nifty kitchen gadget I purchased: You Gotta Get One of These!, July 2014.
Maybe a reader in Italy will read my take on how Chrisopher Columbus is feted in the USA: In Fourteen Hundred Ninety Two, posted in October 2014.
What do readers in Australia, France, England find interesting? Maybe stories about the World Wars and the veterans who fought in them: Giving Thanks and Over There, November 2014. And Comanche Code Talkers:July 2014.
I wonder if readers in Ecuador or Poland or Greece can relate to my wacky family stories, like O, Day of Labor: August 2014. I’ll bet they can. I’ll bet their families do exactly the same funny things.
And that’s the point! Here we all are, from every part of this little blue marble planet, writing and reading about all sorts of things and connecting through the air, discovering how we’re the same, how we’re a little different, who I am, who you are…….reaching out and touching each other.
Welcome, readers of the world! Welcome to my world! I hope you will let me know who you are and where you are and what you would like to know more about my little pinpoint of our world. It will be great to ‘meet’ you!
