The New York Times posted an article about bloggers who abandon their websites, which is the overwhelming rule, not the exception, in the blogosphere.
The stats are interesting, but this is the part that caught my eye:
… Matt Goodman, an advertising executive in Atlanta, had no trouble attracting an audience to his self-explanatory site, Things My Dog Ate, which included tales of his foxhound, Watson, eating remote controls, a wig and a $400 pair of Prada shoes.
“I did some Craigslist postings to advertise it, and I very quickly got an audience of about 50,000 viewers a month,” he said.
A blog about a dog eating a remote control generated 50,000 views a month? Either college football blogging is more of a backwater than I thought, or you’re reading the post of one very humbled blogger right now. Sheesh.
