Today my feedburner dashboard informed me that I surpassed 400 subscribers (to my main feed). I’m now regularly getting over 600-700 hits a day and it moves into the 1000s about once every two weeks when I write on open source or the article gets slashdotted or retweeted by someone like Jay Rosen or Tim O’Reilly.
Recently a newspaper editor asked me if I knew who any these subcribers and readers are, why they read my blog and what they like/don’t like. I suddenly realized that while many of you know a bit about me, I know almost nothing about you.
Of course some of you may like it that way! Which is cool, no need to share… but for those who are inclined I thought I’d do a little outreach. If you have a second over the weekend please post a comment below and let me know who you are, why you come to eaves.ca, maybe what you like/don’t like about the site or what you’d like to see more/less of. No guarantees I can act on any of this, but I’d love to hear from you. Of course, often when I’ve solicited input in the past many of you have been more comfortable emailing me – feel free to do that instead, although a comment helps build a sense of community!
Hope to hear from some of you soon.
