So, the July stats for the GotDotNet blog pages came out, and I actually showed up
with a statistically significant number of hits! I started my blog in late June,
and I had so few hits in June that I didn’t even show up in the June report (kind
of demoralizing). But for July I got over a thousand separate visits at my main
page (and many more RSS listeners).
So far I’ve received a handful of blog comments and 0 (yes, zero) direct e-mails.
I had actually considered giving some fake alias to defend against a storm of random
e-mails from people asking me to debug their apps for them (this used to happen when
I posted on Usenet with my microsoft.com address). But blog readers are obviously
a more sophisticated lot!
(Knowing that someone is listening is important to us bloggers — it give us good
motivation to keep at it!)
Thanks to all those who are tuning in! -Chris
