Practical Dad

RSS At 10,000

People that have their own websites can be caught up in numbers.  How many hits?  How many unique visitors?  From where are they accessing the site - via search engine or link to somebody else?  Honestly, I've never paid a great deal of attention to the data which is why PracticalDad is a relatively stripped down, no-frills site.  Parents - fathers and mothers - aren't going to read this site because I toss in an article about which is the best family minivan; there are other and better sites for that and I'm not going to spend my time playing Can You Top This?  But what has become my focus is the RSS Feed and it was this weekend that the RSS feed clicked over the 10k mark.

Thank you.  Honestly, thank you very much for giving enough of a damn to put this site on your RSS feed. 

But now I'm going to ask for some input from you, if you could kindly spare me a few moments. 

Should I just keep plugging as I've been or are there some changes that you'd like to see?  More importantly, are there areas on which I need to provide greater - or lesser - focus?  I'm not hiring a market research firm to handle data collection since this is effectively a kitchen table endeavor, but I'd appreciate knowing, and if I don't get 10,000 responses, then I'll try to respond to as many as I can.  If you don't want to respond or have nothing to add, then that's fine, too.

And in the meantime, I'll continue to roll on as I have, writing for the site in between hauling the kids and managing the family affairs.
