Been updating my blog, among other things, and found a new gadget with which I'd like you to help me out. If you are reading my blog, please "follow me" with the new gadget called "Followers" in the right hand column just under my picture.
I've always wanted a way to see who is reading this blog (since I get very few posts), and I hope this is the answer.
Now research shows that
* 90% of users are lurkers (i.e., read or observe, but don't contribute).from Jakob Nielsen on Why No One Comments on Your Blog.
* 9% of users contribute from time to time, but other priorities dominate their time.
* 1% of users participate a lot and account for most contributions: it can seem as if they don't have lives because they often post just minutes after whatever event they're commenting on occurs.
I'm sure there is a lot of other research out there regarding percentage of readers versus commenters, but this one fit my post so I'll stop with it. You can let me know about the others if you choose to do more research, thanks.
Anyway, click on that little follow option . . . I appreciate it.
