RSS readers VS Website readers?
Michael Arrington said an interesting thing during The Next Web Conference. Casually he mentioned that he wasn’t interested in page views or website visits but only in RSS feed readers. He did know how many page loads he had a month but the number he was really interested in where his RSS feed readers.
Not long after The Next Web Conference I decided to start writing this blog. I have been blogging for years but always on different projects. I think the first real blog I managed was the HubHop blog (95 posts). But I also wrote for Macosx.nl (167 posts), Fleck.com (104 posts) and Meganova.nl.
So I started blogging here. I have heard that the average amount of blogpost on any blog is 3. After three posts the blogger is tired of blogging and gives up. I decided not to blog for an audience but mainly for myself. So my posts have been motivated by frustration, enthusiasm or just boredom.
But I would be lying if I said I didn’t care about who was reading this blog and I have been monitoring the growth on a daily basis. I try to write interesting posts and am happy when I get quoted or get comments and interaction.
So here is the graph of my page load and the Feed Burner stats on top of it. Hope you find it interesting.
