Knowing my readers



Blogging has been a little like opening the Johari window for me, although at a different level. After almost a year of blogging (when my blogging was more of a Personal KM effort) I discovered Technorati and it was a shock, to discover who was linking to me. Knowing that I had even a couple of readers actually modified the kinds of posts I was writing. Currently I have 75 blogs linking to me 89 times. Technorati actually discards post links after 7 days, so majorly it consists of blogroll links.

And then, I discovered the joys of RSS, and bloglines. It gave me a little more picture about who was reading the blog, and that modified the postings accordingly. Currently I have 63 people reading the rss feeds through bloglines...and I wonder who read it through other aggregators...? Blog pundits what are the tools that would tell you who reads you ? (considering that blogger does not support trackback yet !)

So my posts are currently on these areas:

  1. Knowledge Management
  2. HR areas
  3. Indian business scenario
  4. Soapbox - my views on all and sundry

What else would you want me to write about?

I am not making any commitments, but just thought I would do this dipstick check so that you can give me some feedback....feel free to email me or use the comments section of this post !

Another thought: I notice I don't get too many comments...why? What do I have to do to get comments? ;-)
