A bare double-handful of weeks post-assimilation I've struck a bit of a quandary with respect to readership. As expected, our traffic has jumped up quite a bit. A veeeery slow day around here matches some of our better days on WP. Nice that. But what with the recent transition and the increased traffic and whatnot, its a bit hard to tell much about "our" reader demographics. And yet we have reason to identify at least a couple of "our" readers.
The overlords are up to a new project which is intended to get some of our (meaning SB) readers to tell the rest of our (meaning SB) readers what hot stuff they should be reading on the SB. This can be viewed a little like the "top 5 most active" and "top 5 most emailed" sidebar links, only with a little more thoughtful input from readers. Readers as in a select subset of contributing regular readers, rather than the google-horde that stops by for pictures of whassername or the other horde that stops by for the stench of calamari.
The fun part is that this is to be a representative democracy such that even dinky little operations like DrugMonkey can play. Unfortunately, being still on blog 0.8beta instead of SuperBloggerz2.01.2 like most of the folks around here, the notion of plumbing the stats for our most plugged-in homies holds little interest.
The deal is this.
Do you know from del.icio.us? Do you use it? Regularly?
If so, make some sustained
noise thoughtful commentary around here over the next few weeks would ya? We need to find some suckers SuperReaders.
