This Blog is Half as Popular As It Used to Be - Why?
By oracletechnet on Nov 10, 2009
Wow, I am seeing some disturbing stats where this blog is concerned. Basically, it appears that either half as many of you are reading it, or that all of you are now reading it only half the time.
Believe me, I am not blaming the victim. This is almost certainly my fault: for one thing, the number of posts have gone down, in inverse relation to my Twitter activity. (Yes, I am one of those shallow people who think that Twitter is often a worthy substitute for blogging.) At the same time, my Twitter follower count has gone up like a rocket.
It's also true that for the most part, the most interesting subjects are off-limits for me at the moment. So, it's possible that a lot of people got tired of looking for juicy content here, and then not finding it. Frustrating.
Perhaps when the information floodgates can open, the crowds will return. In the meantime, if there are any "discussable" subjects of interest to you, feel free to leave me a comment. I'll redouble my efforts to minimize Twitter-induced blogging disruption.
