I would just like to thank everyone who participated and are still participating
in the reader survey I posted on Tuesday. It’s a lot of fun to hear from people
I don’t normally hear from, and learn more about even the frequent commenters.
I’m always a little afraid to solicit responses
because a) it feels self-indulgent to ask, and b) it feels absolutely awful
if no one responds. I learned a few things from your comments:
- There are more international readers here than I realized—Canada, England,
Scotland, Australia, Malta, Malaysia, Singapore, a nameless country in Southeast
Asia, and California are all represented.
- A number of people who visit this site live in places I wouldn’t know where
to look for on a map.
- I should really visit Malaysia some day. I already have several friends
- Definitely more women than men read this blog.
- Search engine hits sometimes result in return visitors.
- Since a couple of Oklahomans visit this site regularly, I should tone down
my anti-Okie rhetoric when The University of Texas plays OU this year.
- People really do read what I write and enjoy it. That’s what I hope for,
but it’s a little overwhelming to know it for a fact.
Just about every day this week has had some sort of blog-trumping quality,
which is why I resorted to asking for reader participation. Next week I will
definitely get back to writing about marriage for real.
Thanks again, all of you.
