Delaware, North Dakota and Rhode Island

A dear friend of mine recently wrote that there were no bloggers in Iowa.  I don't know about blog writers, but I know Iowa has blog readers.  I've been visited by Adair, Cedar Rapids,Sioux City, Waterloo, Council Bluffs, Redfield, and Bradgate, Iowa.

In a past post I wrote about my addiction to my tracking widget.  I really love seeing the cities around the world that visit my blog.  I started keeping track of which states have visited.  It didn't take long to add around forty states to my list...   Slowly the final states have been showing up one-at-a-time... except for three:  Delaware, North Dakota and Rhode Island.

It seems strange to me that my blog has been visited by Malaysia, Iran, Nigeria, and Bahrain, but not by Delaware.  I know there are lots of computers in Delaware.  They have to have them to keep track of all the credit card accounts.  Maybe Rhode Island is too small to have its own internet hub.  Is that possible?  That would explain it not showing up on my widget.  North Dakota?  I've never been there, but I want to visit it someday.  I imagine if I lived in a place like North Dakota, perhaps I wouldn't be spending my spare time reading blogs either.  I'd be out riding the range on Nekoda or Maggie.  Or maybe huddled by the campfire watching the sunset with Sadie.  (If you don't know Nekoda, Maggie and Sadie, click HERE)

If you are reading this, and know anyone in Delaware or Rhode Island, have them stop by my blog so I can feel some sense of achievement.  North Dakota has an excuse...

Sorry, don't know anyone in any of those states - at least not yet.

I can see you on the plains in ND riding with the wind. I say let's get you a lasso so you can rope in some peeps from Delaware & R.I. Yippy I Aye... I can agree with you about seeing ND. I was there as a baby. Does that count??

I've gotten hits from Rhode Island, but maybe because my son-in-law is from there and I think sometimes some of his family members peek in. I haven't been paying as much to my map lately, but it always fascinated me. I could never get all 50 states either, but I don't remember which ones didn't show. I wonder about some of those international hits sometimes--the ones from Iran, China, or countries like that give me the creeps sometimes. It shows that they spend zero time on my site (as do about 50% of all visits) --I'm always paranoid that somebody is trying to spread a virus or take control of my computer. Weird paranoia I guess.
