Why We Blog
I checked last month's stats on my own site and fully a third of the hits were on my post on the frilled lizard boat. Now I don't know where these hits come from, but I suspect that somewhere out there are school children who are doing a report on frilled lizards and stumbling onto my blog pages. They are most likely disappointed by the results, but they will at least walk away with a nice photo of a frilled lizard. But they won't really care about what I have to say about kayaks and kayak paddles and water. So then, my real audience, the people I am addressing in my imagination is really much smaller than I imagine. But still, large numbers are good for the ego and I can pretend that the people who search for frilled lizards really do care about what I have to say.
