I have always considered myself pretty good at world geography. Well, up until they started changing a lot of the names in Africa some years ago. I lost it a bit then! I was fascinated that people were viewing and subscribing from countries I had not expected. Saudi Arabia surprised me. As did Gaum. Oh, look! There are men subscribing from the Philippines…that is interesting.
Then it happened… someone hit subscribe in the Northern Mariana Islands. Where? Where in the world are the Northern Mariana Islands? Thank goodness for Google and how did we ever live without it?! I found out that they are a string of islands north east of the Philippines and on your way to Japan. You probably knew that but it was a geography lesson for me.
Going to work was going to put a stop to all my goings-on but it was a pleasant distraction. It was a very busy day at work so, by the time I got home, I made a cup of coffee and sat down at the computer to find that our little family had grown to 630 subscribers and 1341visits.
There were more questions in my inbox and I spent the evening listening to the dings of subscribers – which now had the therapeutic effect of making me smile each time I heard them – and answering questions as best I could. 
By the end of the day I looked at 646 subscriptions and 1396 visits and thought that maybe there was a need for people to have a place they could go to either ask or check out what other people are dealing with and, hopefully, get some support in that. 
I closed my eyes knowing I had grown that day. I knew where the Northern Mariana Islands were, in case it ever came up in casual conversation in the lunchroom!
