Testing, testing. Is this thing on?

A lot of work goes into this blog -- and a lot of heart, too.

One of the down sides is wondering whether anyone (except Dad29) really reads it.

The only way for us to know is by the comments and feedback you provide.

I'm regularly visiting and reading your blog after linking over from Kathy Carpenter's. I like what I see. Keep up the good work!

That's always the quandry. It's not always easy to tell whether the blog's being read, and comments are not a particularily-good measure. I'm as guilty as anyone in not commenting on something I agree with.

If you're really interested in finding out how many people read, I'd recommend adding a stat counter, and then moving the RSS feed to FeedBurner. The stat counter will catch how many people open up the blog in a web browser, while FeedBurner catches those of us (including me) who use a feed reader to catch the new stuff.

You will be surprised to see how many people do read.

I agree with the first writer about viewing yours after Kathy Carpenter's. It proves that conservative does not = equal conservative.

Personally I don't really care what you think of Afghanistan, but would prefer more focus on state, county, and local conditions (like for example the People's Republic of Pleasant Prairie).

Nice work with getting the Village Board comments moved to the end of meetings! What would they do without your advice. Now, Pleasant Prairie is even more like Kenosha!

Keep up the good work and at least you know you have at least five (somewhat) daily readers. FDR's??

FYI, those of us who use a reader will not show up on your hit meter.

You may want to sign up for feedburner services to get a better idea on this.

Hit the feed meter on my site and follow it from there to set it up.

Thanks to everyone who responded. I truly appreciate your ideas. (Now to figure out how to implement them!)
