Most people who read this blog don’t follow any of the links. MyBlogLog shows me that: on most days, less than five percent of the readers will have followed any individual link. Until yesterday, that is, when nearly 50% of the readers went and looked at that photo of me in the interview. Cads!

Ah well, I suppose I want to know what people look like, too 😉

What people click on and whether or not they return to the original post fascinates me. 🙂
