I started this blog almost eight years ago when I turned sixty years old. My average number of visits per day has gone from ten to fourty during that time. The total number of views is now over 45,000. This does not count those that subscribe to this blog. Since the way I set up the email subscriptions provides the complete post, there is no need for a subscriber to go to my site. But this also means, I do not actually know if the blog post was read. I am about to change that. Now you will only get a summary and will have to go to my blog to read the full post.
It took my seven years to get about a hundred subscribers. In the last month or so, I have more than doubled the number of subscribers and have no idea why. Many of you do not seem to be the kind of reader I would expect. I would love to hear from you as to why you subscribed. I think that something either changed with WordPress or perhaps it was my Wikipedia entry that is driving new people to my site where they subscribe. Frankly, it feels kind of strange.
