Although my blog doesn't have a high readership I continue to blog because I enjoy writing, want to preserve some stories for future generations and believe that some of the things I write about may be of interest to others.
I therefore got a shock this morning when I checked in with Google Analytics to see who had been visiting lately. The visits usually go in peaks and troughs with no particular pattern. On the image below visits go from a low of 16 to a high of 70 in a day. A report on recent visitors tells me that my blog has had no visitors since June 15th.
I find this hard to fathom as someone commented on one of my posts during this time so I must have had at least one visit. Others may read my posts in an RSS reader and not actually visit the blog but to have no visitors for 10 days seems a bit strange. I am now wondering about the effectiveness and reliability of Google Analytics.
