Hey, is this thing on?
I’ve always maintained that the target audience of this blog has size one: In general it’s written for me, and is about stuff I find interesting. If other people find it interesting, that’s great. If not, that’s not a problem. Sometimes I write specific posts that I actually do want other people to read, but most of the time I don’t really care.
On the other hand, Google reader tells me I have 379 subscribers and Google analytics tells me I average about 50-200 visits per day (around 2000-4000 visits per month) depending on how much I’ve been writing recently (and a few giant spikes where I’ve written something that’s got 10k+ visits all on its own).
These aren’t huge numbers, but they’re respectable. Clearly the audience is a bit larger than just me.
So, who are you lot? How’d you get here, and which bits are you actually interested in?
Given that I write about politics, philosophy, mathematics, web comics, voting theory, feminism, programming, cooking, game design and probably more things I’m forgetting about I imagine the only person who is actually interested in everything I have to say is the aforementioned audience of one.
So which bits are you actually interested in? Are there any subjects you particularly would like me to write more about? Chances are I’ll pay only slight attention to it if there are, but there are enough ideas on the back-burner that there’s a good chance I’ve got something to say about it that I haven’t yet.
