Dear readers, I don’t have a subscribe button on my site because I’m not looking to create a following. My aim is to inspire independent critical thinking among readers. On 7/28 this site got 120+ new subscribers. My guess is that people went on the WordPress login page to subscribe to my page. So far I have close to 9,000 subscribers. I’m touched by your commitment.
I recently disabled that feature because I have no intention of using the list and because of the annoying spam I get when this feature is enabled.
On a side note: on the same date this site’s analytics revealed that I only got ~20 page views. Something doesn’t add up.
