The problem with readers

When I started this blog I had exactly zero readers. After one year of intense writing and lots of growth, I have somewhere in the neighborhood of five readers. While my readership has grown a bit since then it creates issues. Like the fact that you guys actually read what I write and expect me to do the things I promise.

Case in point from yesterday. I commented on Twitter that I wonder why people read my blog. Possibly for variety? Lex was nice enough to say she kept coming back to see if I’d post more pictures and reminded me I’d promised to post my favorite shots of ’08.

Crap.

Yes I mostly forgot about promising to do that. Partly because I’ve been really, really busy lately. And also partly because I forget people read these things and actually expect me to do them.

I promise I’ll post my favorites later this week. No really, I will.

Also a note to myself: Don’t promise things on the blog unless they are done already.

    I’ve got to be honest. I don’t know what hooked me in to becoming one of your elite readers. I don’t know you… I arrived on your blog through a link to a link to WTC to your blog, and I liked what I saw, so I subscribed. Plus… you’re close to me. In any case, you have some of the most stunning photos that I have ever seen, and your posts always capture my attention.

    Hey Matt,

    That’s the beauty of the internets. One link leads to another and another. Before you know it, you’re in a digital dark alleyway like my blog and wondering how you can get home. :)

    Glad to have you reading. Thanks for the compliments on the photos.

    Well for the record it wasn’t just the promise of Best of ’08. I stop by from time to time ’cause you throw up pictures of a wedding or a weekend or whatever from time to time.
