Who Are You?

I have always wondered about the readers of this blog, do we (me & Mic) have regular readers subscribed to the blog? Statistics can only tell you so much, we have around a thousand daily page views, and I see lots of references coming from links posted in dpreview forums and Google searches, and the majority of hits comes from the US & Canada.

Recently I've started becoming less motivated to write blog posts and reviews. You know, when you write an exciting mail to someone or a long blog post that you spent a few days preparing and writing, at the beginning you are very excited and keep waiting for feedback, opinions from anyone who read what you wrote, any response, but time passes and the silence becomes more deafening, until you forget all about what you wrote and surrender. That's exactly what we lack here, feedback, and that's a strong demotivator.

Do we have regular readers who actually read our posts? Or do we just get hits from people searching for a certain topic and leaving again?

This is an attempt to find out, I'd love to see your comment and learn about the reality of our readers. I have the following posts coming in no certain order, if you want to see a certain topic sooner than the others, please let me know in the comments.
