“I love deadlines. I especially love the whoosh-ing sound they make as they fly by.”
After ten days or so of, for Gary William Murning Online, at least, extremely high hit rates (close on 7,000 a day at its peak), everything seems to be finally calming down. The world didn’t end (it was never going to, even if there had been a problem with the experiment — which there isn’t — because it doesn’t really start doing proper science for a few weeks yet) and as the dust settles I’m left wondering what to do next by way of a stats encore… and just how many of the visitors I’ve seen over the past few days have decided to stick around and keep reading.
Whilst I work on the first question, maybe you can help with the second.
Are you a new reader who intends on returning? What aspect of this blog do you especially enjoy? The science-related posts? My writing-related work? Have you subscribed via a feedreader, some other service, or do you just pop along when it occurs to you? Is there anything else you would like to see here that I haven’t already thought of?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
