Free Brand new Book – Does anyone read my Blog?

In my blog posting on Sept 29 I offered to send a free copy of the new book Lincoln: The Presidential Archives to the first person who posted a comment on the blog and sent me their address. (The offer is still good.)Since no one has taken me up  on the offer I must assume that no one wants the book or no one reads my blog. I get a few comments on my blog so I know that it sometimes gets read. I think this illustrates what I have suspected for a while. Most people probably read blogs by searching. For example Richard Bernstein the author of The book Thomas Jefferson recently commented on the blog post I did for his book. Undoubtedly he found the post by searching on his name. I was very excited to get his feedback and in a sense make an acquaintance with him.

I regularly read blogs by using the Google blog reader but I suspect no one else regularly reads my blog. This bothered me for a while but I then I reminded myself that I blog because I like to. Comments welcome.

  1. I don’t read blogs by search. I normally stumble upon a blog and then read their posts and follow the links from one blog to another. Its amazing sometimes seeing the circle of people. You arrive at blogs you wouldn’t think would ever be linked but by the 6 degrees of seperation it somehow happens. Keep blogging. People very very rarely leave me comments but I don’t let it stop me from blogging.
