I read blogs using bloglines, which is a pretty handy and free aggregating service. I just realised that when I look at the latest news for a blog it tells me how many people are subscribed to that blog using bloglines. I have 17 subscribers! Woohoo! I thought I might have that many readers total - bloglines of course does not know about people who just pop in to look every now and then.
Why do I care? Well I don't mind knowing who I'm talking to here. In theory, the whole world can read this, but I reckon I appeal to a niche audience :-). For comparison, Boardgame News has 83 subscribers and Gone Gaming has 91, Mike Doyle has 21.
