No surprises here, just an honest question. Do you subscribe to blog RSS or Atom feeds? Do you watch the various twitter accounts for signs of a new post? Do you check in to your favourite sites every week/day/hour? None of the above? I’m curious.
Conversely: Blog-owners, where does the majority of your traffic come from? On my end a significant fraction of visitors come from ‘syndicated’ pageviews (ie. RSS readers), but the largest fraction are referred by other blogs, twitter feeds, or reddit (google searches account for a steady 20% or so).
