I am always amazed at the reach of blog posts. When I look at the analytics for my blog I wonder…..who are all those people? I believe these are all actual humans and not gremlins. I look at all the countries they are in and I realize that they have read my blog posts. A recent post “When Life Hands You Lemons” was particularly interesting. This is a post about a very courageous horseman, Eddo Hoekstra, who rose above crippling health events to continue to do what he loves; teaching others how to connect with their horses.
Here is how far that post reached.
The largest numbers of readers were in Canada, which is now Eddo’s home country and in the USA where he teaches clinics. But look at all the other countries.
Eddo used to live in Bermuda so there would be readers there. But South Korea? India?And there is more….
I’m not sure that Eddo will be getting calls to teach clinics in the Philippines but there is one thing that is clear to me. Eddo’s story is a story of struggle, survival and triumph . It is a story of a person who overcame the odds and did it with a big and generous heart. That is a story that resonates with people all over the world whether they ride horses or not. This is what it comes down to. We can all identify with that.
Hands across the Blogosphere.
