People has been reading my OTHER blog

This afternoon I received a call from Leonard. He called my cell to apologize for the bad service I've encounter with his plumbing company yesterday.

I was shocked to receive the call as I really don't know how he got my cell number. On top of that, I've just posted the blog yesterday afteroon. At the same time, my mind was wondering how did he know about it, how did he find out about my blog in the first place.

I wanted him to give me the answer about my questions, but the line was in a lot of static and my boy was crying as it was his nap time and we were at a friend's house. I accepted his apology and I hung up the phone and left my friend house. He kept mentioning that it wasn't him who took the call because he was out of town and kept insisting that he is able to show me his air plane ticket for his flight from Dallas back to LA early this morning.

After this call, my mind couldn't stop thinking. While on the way back home, I was thinking how did they find out about my post. And how did he find my phone number (which wasn't listed anyway)? There is no phone number in my profile listed with blogspot or technorati. I guess there are ways to find out. One possible way was he went to my Real Estate Blog and I have listed my office number there. He might have called my office and asked for my cell number. That is one way to do it. There may be others but I can't think of any. Scary huh?! Now I really have to think what to post and what NOT to post.

Anna; OIC no probs, no wonder I could not access the URL, hehe. U're right, yr RE blog does make it possible for strangers to get hold of u.

Wow, that's so scary that they could trace your phone number and address. You should ask him how he got it so you know how to prevent other people getting hold of your personal details. I hope all goes well.
