I think that the fact that I have been writing on this blog for four years already, without having gathered more than a few hundred visits a month, is a proof of something. Not clear what. But I'll give it a try.
First, that there is no correlation between the popularity, or computer-savvyness, of the speakers of a language, and the popularity of blogs written in it. Long tails exists everywhere, and even if the tail is fatter in some particular language, some people get to be in the tiniest, thinniest part of it.
Second, that it's important to fill a niche, but some niches are mostly void. There are not many blogs-that-talk-about-research-and-Spanish-politics-and-a-bit-of-humor-on-the-side. But when all is said and done, there's very few people interested in that.
Perhaps there's something else I have realized, and that's the fact that a blog needn't be popular to just be. I have written, and I guess I'll keep on writing, even if daily visits go down to binary (one day a visit, the next one no visit), which is the only way down from now. It helps to vent off steam, or to announce stuff which I need announced.
And, of course, even if you are few, it's great to have you around. So happy new year to you all!
