Who Reads this Stuff?

I have asked myself on several occasions, 'Who reads this stuff?'  Fortunately, Google allows bloggers to track their audience.  Since the blog started thirteen months ago, over 5,000 people have read my posts. 

Now, in the grand, worldwide scheme of things, that is not a lot of readers.  I blogged back in October about some of the readers' locations.

Yesterday, someone asked me why there seem to be no comments on my blog.  Other than the fact that I edit them, I do post almost all that I receive. 

What is interesting is that people I know who do read it send me an email to an address not associated with the blog.  Or to the gmail address shown on the website.  And when they do, I have no way of posting that comment.

On the other hand, when someone sends a post through 'blogger', I have no way of responding to them unless they provide a separate email address.  So, I hope they do not think I ignore their comments after they get posted.

I also know that some folks have chosen not to be a 'follower' because they do not want to be shown as a reader for 'personal reasons'.  And I fully understand that.

Now, at the bottom of each of these posts you have the ability to choose what you think of it:  'Funny', 'interesting', or 'right on'.  If you hate it, you can skip to the next blog by clicking the link up top.

All in all, even if no one read the posts, I would probably continue.  I find it very cathartic.  Especially when all I can see out of my window is 'white'.

  1. Don't forget those of us who read your blog (and others) from a reader and never get counted.


I love to hear your comments and will try to reply on this blog and visit your blog when available.
