Who reads Zanshin?

January 09, 2004

I just read an interesting posting which asked the question, "Do you tell your family about your blog?"

The comment I posted on Makiko's site went like this:

I write about a variety of topics on my site, sometimes intensely personal and other times trivial fluff.

I've never openly invited immediate family members to go and read my site; like you they all get e-mail from me with the domain name, so they "know" where it is located.

I guess I would be okay with them reading it since I would not expect feedback or to get my needs met through them. For all I know they are reading it now and just not saying anything to me.

Beyond immediate family and friends, I am curious to know who reads my site. I can see by referer logs, and site counters how many of you there are, and where some of you came from. But I really have no interaction with the people reading my thoughts. It makes this form of communication unique.
