Experiment: the testing of an idea.
This post follows from my post on stats and posting. I do observe a number of pageviews from countries other than my own, and often wonder, how many people are really that free to read up a seemingly random blog? How many actually end up reading more than the first few lines?
I have decided to create a blog which I shall not publicise in any way. I shall put up seemingly random posts there, but not post the URL on Buzz, Facebook or Twitter, in other words, not thrust the blog upon my friends.
What do I hope to see from this experiment. I suppose that it would give me some idea about the number of people who happen to visit my blog from various sources, those who do not have the blog thrust upon them.
As to the question about how many people end up reading more than the first few lines, checking that would be much difficult. Can someone suggest a good method?
Why do I wish to do this experiment? Because I am hopelessly jobless.
Will I share my findings with you? Sure, if there is anything to share (besides the obvious
No one wants to read my blog, boo-hoo).
