Free Web Survey
I'm trying to figure out how many different people are reading this blog, and I'm pretty sure SiteMeter exaggerates the numbers a bit. Whenever you read this entry, please "vote" for the day you're reading this. Thanks!



I'd like to amend my vote for "Jan 27th" by saying that I read most blogs via Google Reader, including yours, and especially because for some reason it always takes forever to load. (The left sidebar and the header show immediately, but the rest only shows up after a minute. Seriously a minute, which is beyond forever in Internet terms.)

By Blogger OJ (not that one), at 4:05 AM  

I also read via Googlereader. I hardly ever come to the site. I just scroll through all my subscribed sites. And it says on Googlereader you have 689 subscribers who read this way. I'm sure the other feed sites like Bloglines etc. would have a similar number, so quite a few regular readers I'd imagine.

By Blogger Kevin, at 6:20 AM  

Interesting experiment, I'm curious to see your results.

By Blogger About, at 10:37 AM  

Huh, that last post was me (Kody Chamberlain), not sure why Google is listing my name as "ABOUT".

By Blogger About, at 10:43 AM  

Likewise subscribed through Google Reader and only come to the blog if I'm commenting or searching in the archives.

<blond>I think it's interesting that everyone voting has picked today. I'm shocked that *no one* has read this tomorrow.</blond>

By Blogger R.A. Porter, at 10:48 AM  

Another ammended vote. I read this today, and I read via Bloglines RSS agregator. That said, while I normally read within a day or two, I currently am behind with unread posts going back to 1/16.

By Blogger Pythor, at 11:57 AM  

I'm assuming the person who is reading this tomorrow is simply in a much later time zone and not a time traveller who has come back from the future to do some web browsing. By the way, I've already registered my script with that story with the WGC and WGA. It's kind of like The Net, but without all the running around.

By Blogger Tim W., at 12:02 PM  

Pythor, don't worry about your "usual" reading patterns. I'm just looking for a snapshot of the readership at a given point.

The next poll coming down the pike is about how many are reading through an RSS aggregator.

Thanks, people!

By Blogger Alex Epstein, at 1:06 PM  

I usually wait to actually read the blog all at once, once a week, so I voted for 3-7 days, even though I actually did read it today. (I saw that you were doing a poll on my RSS feed, so I clicked through.)

By Blogger Maude Cat, at 5:04 PM  

Just voting.

By Blogger A Strange Boy, at 11:00 PM  

It was kind of depressing, moving my blog on Wordpress, and then finding out I get eight readers a day, rather than 230 (and that was without counting one's own visits).

Still, a couple of people have put me on an rss feed, it seems (the meter jumps the moment I post), but I always thought my sketch blog was a minority taste.

By Blogger Jack Ruttan, at 6:13 AM  

I read it though Google Reader.

By Blogger Catalin Braescu, at 6:49 AM  

I'm reading this during the waning days of the Pelopennesian War. Does that help?

By Blogger DMc, at 8:44 AM  

If you don't vote you can't compain. Oh, wait, this isn't that type of vote. Then I vote myself off the island.
