I really don't have a clue...
If you look in the sidebars you'll see three measurements: one of posts viewed by RSS, one that says "Top Posts" (via PostRank) and another bearing the header "Popular Content" which is a service of Google.
None of them jive with the results I receive through my sitemeter service. So I'm puzzled.
I'll leave them there for now, because they do give readers an opportunity to see other material posted on this humble weblog.
I just got a nice email from someone who said she bookmarked my blog for use as a "portal" to "go through to visit a bunch of interesting sites."
I like that. It makes me feel "functional" ???
Also check out "I Read These" - a place where I list blogs I check in with more frequently.
If your blog is not on that list, please don't be offended! Some of my favourite bloggers don't update regularly like they used to, so I keep track of them them via my Google Reader. That way I can see the moment they've published something.
I'm really glad I updated and added the 3-column template. Any suggestions you readers may have are always welcome!
