I've been hoping for some sign that my website work could help pull me out of this. It's time to be honest about the state of this project.
I get about 100 visitors per day. About half of them stay for more than 0 seconds.
Visitors generally come via google image search. This means that people are not looking for anything to read, let alone the sort of material I write. This also means that these viewers are gotten by a sort of cheat, however accidental. Those images are not mine.
A few visitors come via Google text search, but not many.
Some people stay and read. Some take a tour through the pages. 20, 30, 40-page runs, I've even seen 50. When a person runs through pages in this way, they seem to spend an average of about 30 seconds on each page.
