Would you indulge my curiosity, please?

Do some of you read my posts on RSS without visiting the blog?
(I think that's the purpose of RSS;  ain't it?. :-)

I ask because several times I've I had friends mention in their emails how much they enjoy my blog, but when I see no trace of their visits on my site-meter, I figure they're just being polite.

I may be misjudging them.

A blogger mentioned getting the entire post on RSS, and the site meter suggests that she only visited the blog itself so she could leave a comment there.

So, if that is what you normally do, would you let me know?

GOD!!! - What a tender and insecure soul am I (as I remarked to that blogger).

(I can just imagine some of the replies now...
  "Paul, we're in the 21st century now; you don't know about RSS?!!!"
  "Is your computer steam powered?!!!" 
  "Paul, I reckon you figure correctly."  :-)

I'm guessing I'm the blogger you mentioned. ;^p

You've got six subscribers on Google Reader alone; you've got two followers, and I think that would let them read the RSS as well.... I think that Outlook (and other installed email readers) let you subscribe to RSSes as well.

So probably not just being polite. ^.^

Yup! - You are.

So, maybe I can go all Sally Field, "You like me! You really like me!"

Cool - :-)

I read your posts on RSS (Google Reader), and only visit to comment.

That's so good to know.

I cannot adequately express how good it feels to know that something I may have put my heart into hasn't just disappeared into the void.
