An Experiment

If you read this, please leave a comment.

"read it" will do just fine.
You don't need any kind of account to comment-- you can even be anonymous.

I can see how many visits this blog gets, but I've often wondered how many people actually read the posts, enlarge the pictures, and watch the videos.  So, if you've looked at anything here (heck, even if this is the first post here you've seen), leave a comment on this post.  I think it will be interesting to see how many actual people there are.

  1. You can drop in google analytics code into your blog to track visitors. Wordpress also has some built in visitor tracking widgits I think.

  4. I read it when you update, and I use statcounter.com to track on my blog - free & easy. You can see every time someone enlarges a photo or follows an external link too.

  20. First time I've ever heard of or visited Mr. Chicken. We're haunters ourselves and members of CalHauntS South. Once in a while we get time to let our fingers wander and surf the haunty sites on the web. Yes, I've read some of the entries and enlarged some of the photos. Enjoyed it.
