Siss, Siss, Siss! Boom, Boom Boom! Bah. Aught Nine!
Many of you I know well… some I don’t know at all and many I come across and you tell me you read here. I thank you all. Just to let you know that you are not alone I will update the reader trends below. I get asked how many people read here and I honestly don’t know. Blog-metrics like user or hit counts are becoming ever less useful as people read more and more via content aggregators of all forms and for other reasons.
But taking this as a metric of some value, here is what the hitcounter tells me. I won't get into the reasons why these numbers are both over and under counts in terms of representing true readership. I have no illusions that this is anything more than a moderate amount of bandwidth as these things go. I really am quite happy to expound deep deep in the long tail space. I am mostly curious that the trend here appears to be quite steady over the long haul.. Spikes in there on some days, but really no big jumps up or down breaking the long term trend for the most part. Ignoring what our hybrid MSM friends get, I am sure this comes in less than Bram, must pale in comparison to PittGirl and I personally am curious how much traffic the sports folks like Mondesihouse get which I suspect is quite a lot… but this is the all time traffic count here for unique users per day since inception for what it is worth.
