Every day, this site welcomes about 200 visitors. That’s peanuts compared with the hordes that the likes of Yahoo or even aintitcoolnews.com pull in every hour, but for a humble one-man affair working on a shoe string, I think that’s mighty nice. Especially since I’ve never paid enough attention to promotion or anything remotely resembling marketing. For that : thank you.
But where do you all come from ? A quick glance at my stats that most of you find the Ephemerist through plain old, boring Google. 25 % of you is scavenging the net via a plethora of localized Google Images variants, and another 15 % is just searching around. StumbleUpon is also quite a good source for that kind of accidental hits. So, there goes the link love theory.
Anyway, after a year of blogging, I have the impression I’ve been able to build a good community of loyal readers (even though the majority of visitors were looking for my reports on my dealings with Quechup). Which is quite a nice feeling, I can tell you. I won’t let you down.
