There is a "Site Meter" on my cooking blog.
It's interesting to see who's been coming and where they come from when they visit that site.
I've been nagging Randall about getting a similar thing on this site, and yesterday I was able to get a little glimpse of what kind of activity there's been here.
It's funny, (not in a "haha" sort of way) what knowing you have an audience can do for a person.
I was thinking about it as I walked home from Church this morning.
Yes, I know.
I didn't have very long to think about it.
But I had enough time to wonder what I'm doing here.
Am I more stand-up comedian or story teller? Is it reality-internet meets Ladies' Home Journal?
People are reading this... but what are they reading and why are they reading and what is the point of it?
I was a little pumped to see that there are numbers. Numbers that represent actual people sitting in front of actual computers actually reading what's written here.
It occurs to me that stats can be illuminating, interesting, and encouraging, as well as motivating and energizing.
I should get back to writing more often...
