Labor of Love
The first thing I do after a cursory glance of the site is to find the Sitemeter on the site and check their average daily visits and their traffic for the last year. Then I read a little closer to see why the site gets the amount of hits is does.
I have to say that for many, blogging must just be a labor of love. I say this because their site traffic really sucks. Many in the order of 15 or less visits a day. Often times this is after blogging for several months or more.
I lament the fact that I only average between 45-50 visits a day. I console myself with the fact that I have only been blogging for about 3 weeks. Once word gets out of just how I much I rule, then the masses are sure to flock here. I blog because my opinion could be the crucial link that improves the lives of countless others and dammit who am I to deprive the proletariat of my thoughts.
I don't want to be that poor bastard that gets 5 visits a day, 4 of which are him checking to see if anyone else has visited.
