I started blogging in 2009, and the blog became very popular within a month. In 2011, I moved to a better platform, and around that time blogging became eclipsed by a succession of social media. I also stopped doing any blog promotion at all at about that time.
The blog readership stabilized at approximately 1,700 hits a day. And it’s been that way for a while.
The good news about the migration of most online readers to social media is that I no longer have to do any moderation at all. The blog never gets idiot visitors any more. And the blogs that remain in existence are overwhelmingly intelligent.
So thank you, my friends, for reading and not defecting to the social media completely.
