I started this blog on April 10th, 2008.  Technically it was a few months before that but due to some rookie mistakes for the first few months I finally figured out how to manage a blog without blowing it up.  Over the last 4 years I’ve had 465 comments.  That means for every 6 blog posts I get one comment, not too bad I guess.  That number is terrible if you were to compare to likes/comments on a Facebook posting.  Blog engagement/community seems to be dying.  Maybe it is just me.  People consume on blogs/sites and engage in social media.  At least that is my view.  I’m averaging 40 some RSS reads per day, is RSS dying too?  To date 256,199 people have visited my site.  I don’t have a blog for the hits, or for the comments.  I use my blog as an online brain, a place for me to refer to things I’ve thought, sites I’ve enjoyed, videos, pictures, things I want to share.  Thanks for hanging in there with me while we all figure this out.
