Although I really should, I don’t pay much attention to how many people actually read this site other than to check whatever reports WordPress sends my way or if someone who wants to send me something to review asks for stats just to know I’ve at least the minimum amount of traffic they require (I do, by the way). That’s thanks to the numbers going up and down over time and the general unreliability of the internet in gauging whether or not someone is a real person, someone pretending to be someone else, or a well-tuned spambot just doing its thing. I actually “lost” about 100 or so followers from my old site when it was on Blogger thanks to a facebook hiccup that I’ve never been able to figure out and me not wanting to personally shoot out emails to each and everyone of those people to see what was up. I know some were probably spambots or folks who ran crappy get rich quick scam sites full of links no one needed to see, so good riddance to them. On the other hand, I do wonder about the rest of the folks who didn’t transfer over from Blogger, as I still see them on the old site when I swing by to change the banner there once a month.
Any-waaaay, I’ve been hovering around 666 followers for a few days now, as if no one wants to take the plunge and get “unlucky”. Actually, I’d need 667 followers to hit that number, as I don’t count myself as a subscriber even though I clicked that box by accident once day and got annoyed because I’d be getting emails about posts I just made as I made them and was trying to get LESS email and not more. Oh well. That said, I don’t really care who subscribes as long as they read and enjoy what’s here. I’m not about to pull a facebook here and sneakily force you to speak up when you don’t want to. “Like” it or not, as long as you’re reading, I’ll keep writing…
