About This Weblog

For those who have been following this effort for the last many years, you know that I'm straightforward about who I am, where I come from, and what I'm all about.  With the exception of my being evasive about my current employer - I owe it to the corporation and I'm not suicidal - I'm very open about this weblog and about myself.  While some bloggers feel the need to write anonymously, I have always viewed such an approach to opinionating to be kinda off the mark.

That said, someone - a dear reader - made the comment the other day about viewership - asking in a roundabout way if I had anybody stopping by the weblog to partake of my radically far-right extremist views.

Well, here's my response.  From Sitemeter, which tracks such things, an accounting for this week, as of a few minutes ago (click on the image to enlarge it):

Average number of visitors per day: 219.  Visits over time?  Over a quarter million.

Is that a lot?

Not really.

Is that small potatoes?

Not for the Southwest Virginia blog world.

Am I happy with it?

I'm not unhappy.

Does my effort make a difference?

You betcha.

Which should give that person who inquired sleepless nights.
