[Hello to all my fans in domestic surveillance]

[ #32682 ]

It's somewhat confusing. I write the odd ramble here. Rarely does anyone comment. So I assume that no-one reads it. Yet every so often someone else mentions that they read this blog. Oh, well. I doubt it will effect the ramble rate.

  • I read almost every journal entry posted including yours. I think the most noteable exception is TorgoX. I don't typically reply because most comments to most journals would be "me too" or "that's interesting". When there are specific requests made in a post that I might be able to help with, I do.

  • So I assume that no-one reads it.

    If you assume that, you're wrong.

    Rarely does anyone comment.

    Maybe you're raising a too high rate of introspective reflection with the stuff you mentioned. And people here are so reserved they keep these intimate thoughts for themselves ;-)

  • Getting comments is always rare. You get more when you generate controversy or post technical inquiries that many people have something to say about. Otherwise, assume that for every one person leaving a comment, there are at least another 10 who read silently. The ratio is probably higher, in fact.

    Personally, I see every single entry and comment posted to the journals here, by way of the newsfeeds. (I don’t read them all, but I still see them before deciding to skip.)

  • Please bury your deposit in the back garden for further responses.
  • Clearly I'm not watching.
  • You do a ton of hacking on Perl's internals.

    That alone makes me keep an eye on what you say.

    Plus, well, there's the news feed for use.perl.

    Come to think of it, pretty much everyone that has moved away from use.perl I don't read their journals any more.

      Yeah, I grab those people only in passing, infrequently, though now that I'm playing so much with Google Reader I might go out and subscribe. To me the unified forum community system was always more attractive than a bunch of scattered blogs.

      Yeah, that's precisely why I "syndicate" my journal, which I consider to really live in Rubric at rjbs.manxome.org. I get many more interesting people reading and commenting on it, here, and it's led to a few nice contacts, like people saying, "Hey, you're a Perl hacker in the Lehigh Valley? When's beer?"
