blog stats

January 29, 2008 at 9:47 pm (learning 2.0, social networking, web 2.0) (, , , )

I watch my blog stats.  I am fascinated by them.  Generally 15-22 people read my blog in a day.  Sometimes, when I link to my blog where my online friends post, I might get 40 – 60 hits.  When I posted about LibraryThing I got about 140 hits.  For the first time, I  felt the panic that a lot of people  feel about the whole on line social networking thing.  I  had no idea  why people were reading my blog , and who they could be. I figured out that 1) LibraryThing liked my post and 2) wordpress  had also linked to my blog – maybe I had the right tag? Anyway, it was a day of fame and maybe a few people will come back .  That  would be cool.  I do think I understand a little more why people can get nervous about the idea of meeting and sharing  with strangers they can’t even see.
