Dvorak on Blog Abandonment
John Dvorak has always hated blogging. In this blog entry, er, column
he cites a study on blog abandonment:
The most obvious reason for abandonment is simple boredom. Writing is tiresome. Why anyone would do it voluntarily on a blog mystifies a lot of professional writers. This is compounded by a lack of feedback, positive or otherwise. Perseus thinks that most blogs have an audience of about 12 readers. Leaflets posted on the corkboard at Albertsons attract a larger readership than many blogs.
Damn, that's harsh John. If you're in Northampton, expect to see printouts of my blog over at Main Street Cleaners -- I need to get my readership up.
