Okay, I totally lied — those are the eminent and very deserving Rock, Paper, Shotgun’s google reader stats. Now, I’m not actually very fussed about readership numbers (just as well, and just as well I have a day job!), but those numbers make me go “wow” all the same. That’s a damn sight more readers than some paper-papers get these days, and probably more than most of the gaming mags I used to buy back in the day. Do those even still exist in paper form? (Rhetorical question!)
Course, it’s probably also a damn sight more work than I’d ever be prepared to put into a blog. 😉
This mostly as an RPS plug — I don’t read every last post they put up, but the stuff that interests me is consistently excellently-written and entertaining. Check it out if you haven’t already.
In other news, it’s International Talk Like A Pirate Day, so those of you stuck at work can ARRRRR! your boss with maybe a slightly lower chance of walking the career plank. Pirates beat ninjas any day of my week. Hrm… I feel a poll coming on.
In other other news, I’m up to 137 feeds in my reader. I keep thinking I should prune out some of the older and probably defunct entries, but I can’t quite bring myself to do it and it’s not like I’m being charged by the feedage pound. In any case, Syp, it’s only a few Syp people who post Syp like the hoes of Babylon, Syp, and make the rest of us slackers look bad. Not that I’d name names.
