Dumbledore vs. Apple Store

It’s finally happened, my post about Dumbledore being a homo has garnered more interest than my post on the Apple Store’s dreadful customer service. I’m a little surprised at that, to be honest since the Apple Store post was linked on a well-read unofficial Apple Store blog for a long while and the Dumbledore post wasn’t even one of the first ones out there reporting it, but who can say what happens on the open seas of the internet.

While I miss the comments and (sometimes false) sense of community that livejournal brought, it is nice to have better access to my statistics and see what people are interested in or not. It sort of blows the LJ attitude of “People aren’t commenting on my entries, therefore they aren’t reading my entries and they don’t care about me — *wah!” right out of the water. :mrgreen:

    My problem with reading sites that come through my RSS feed is that I need to remember to check it. That, and I get overloaded with posts from a certain site I have to keep up with for work. End results? I’ll end up going through 20 posts from one person who’s not on LJ one day a week.

    @Brian: Oh I agree. Occasionally in slow periods at work I can catch up on my RSS feeds and my LJ friends, but in general there’s no way I’ll be able to read people’s blogs every single day. Having a more external site keeps me from posting those “get back to me today” or “no one answered, so I guess you’re not interested” types of entries.

    My stats only allows me to view how many hits I have had any given day, are you able to pinpoint hits for certain posts or do you just post once a day for that data.

    My other question is I post on my blog once, twice a month and I still get hundreds of hits on days I dont post, so how do I know which entry people are reading.

    I guess I will figure this out eventually…
