Blog “Traffic Reports”
First, a disclosure: while I cannot identify specific visitors to this blog (nor do I want to), I CAN see the domain names they — you — are visiting from, as well as which posts visitors start and finish on.
I regard that as useful feedback, and use it (at least a little bit) to guide my choice of post subjects.
Most Popular Posts
After a couple thousand posts spanning 4+ years, and over 130,000 page hits from dozens of countries, I think it’s safe to say that the domain names that are represented now number in the thousands, and run the gamut.
Most notable: whitehouse.gov, senate.gov, and defense.gov (for “Department of Defense”).
So, what are those folks reading?
No, it’s not any of the “weightier” posts on broad real estate trends, economic policy or financial reform.
Usually, it’s fluff like “Real Housewives of the Twin Cities” (same as you — and me, for that matter!).
