Mine is a small corner of cyberspace. I get around 75-100 readers every day, and I have readers who return here regularly. I enjoy that.
Every now and again I get linked by a carnival, or by Pharyngula, and they have had effects on my traffic. You can see those as the small blips above on my traffic graph (plotted since I started the blog in February).
On Sunday, I got linked to by reddit. Wow.
