Who Are My Readers?

December 5th, 2007 | Categories: blogs, marketing, networks, off topic

ConfusedGood question. Apart from MyBlogLog users, I have no idea who reads my blog. Having said that, I am very keen on getting to know my readers. I truly appreciate all the comments, trackbacks, links, and e-mails. Nevertheless, there are still those who like to hang around the periphery and watch from a distance. I have no problem with that, but for this one post…

I would like all regular readers, as well as new visitors, to introduce themselves with a simple comment below. Just mention your name, how long you’ve been reading the blog, and what you do for a living. Heck, you can even mention your company or your pet’s name.

This is simple experiment to help us all get to know one another. It may also provide some added exposure for yourself or your company. So please be sure to drop a comment - even if it is very short. Thanks guys.

    I’m Anthony Norejko CEO of 510 Networks Inc

    I’ve been reading the blog for about 7 months.

    We just launched our new site http://www.tagiton.com
    Obviously looking to get some input from the community, along with getting some exposure to our concept.

    Hi Aidan,

    I’m a web developer from Holland, and have been reading your blog since July 8, when Read/Write web announced that you were one of two new writers for their site.

    My name above this comment links to my personal blog, my company website is http://locusoptimus.com/ and my 3 fish and 2 birds don’t have names :-)

    I’m quite curious to see if many people will respond to this request of yours, as I’ve been thinking of doing the same thing on my own blog. I’ll keep checking back on this post to see how it goes :-)

  7. Mike Says:

    Hi Aidan

    We’ve known each other since Kindergarten, and still hang out on weekends. Although I sometimes find your blog informative, I mostly read it out of sympathy.

  9. Greg Bacon Says:

    Hello, my name is Greg Bacon. I work at a The MathWorks and am involved with developing our community. I also have a blog, baconworks.com, and often wonder the same thing about readership. If your experiment is successful, I may try it out myself. ~Greg

  10. Laurie Says:

    This is Laurie again. After reviewing everyone’s comments, you might want to try something like a contest…I remember on the designsponge blog she did some type of small contest to get people to post. But, it was a year or so ago, and now I can’t remember anything about it.

  11. Lexo Khubulava Says:

    Hi, I’m Lexo Khubulava from Tbilisi, (former Soviet) Republic of Georgia. I run http://www.jobs.ge, the largest job search website in Georgia. I discovered your blog a month ago and since then I’ve been reading it with great interest. I’m mostly interested in Internet technology innovations and the ideas on how to improve and promote my online business and potentially start a new one.

    Keep up good work!


  12. Mike Kowalchik Says:

    Hey Aidan, Mike Kowalchik here (CTO / co-founder of Grazr) out here in Boston, MA. We met at Gnomedex and I’ve been reading your blog since then. Just saw this post and thought I’d drop you a line.

  13. Joshua McKenty Says:

    Joshua McKenty, here. We’ve worked together on a couple of cool projects, nothing cooler than http://www.bountyup.com (remember Gawsip?)

    I’m an entrepreneur and freelance technologist, and I read your blog once every few weeks - mostly when I’m going to bug you and I want you to feel like I care by dropping a reference. (Kidding - I read it to get ideas).

    […] Aidan Henry recently wrote about how he wanted to learn more about his readers, and I have been thinking about how interesting this idea is. Now, I am not going to pretend I have a lot of readers, and while I do not really track my blogging stats, I do want to use this to partially share something about me right now, especially as I just celebrated my first anniversary of this blog.
