Ever since I got an invisible hit counter for this blog in mid-March, I've been surprised to see that people actually read this thing. Of course, I'm talking about you. At my last count, there were 10-15 active Factor programmers in the universe, not counting the ones who do it in secret. Yet, for some reason, my blog gets around 25 unique hits a day, with a standard deviation of around 12 and a distribution skewed strongly to the right. (That's ignoring the outliers of the times I get Redditted, getting 400-500 hits in a day; if I include that, the standard deviation is higher than the mean!)
So, I'm just wondering: among those of you who aren't Factor programmers who I sorta know, what motivates you to read this? Where/how did you find it? I know you're out there, so I'd really like it if you commented. (In fact, I always like it when people comment, even stupid comments.) This isn't meant as interrogation. I'm just really curious and confused.
Update: Thanks for all of your comments! But it's never too late to write another.
