Someone asked me recently if people really read my blog. I replied that I don't have that many readers, but I do have SOME (that's you, by the way). But it made me curious to take stock of who has commented on my blog since I started. I enjoy each and every one of the little notes people take time to type. They are like little gold nuggets, whether they say much or not.
Here are the demographics on commenters up until now, after 9 months of posting:
15 complete strangers (that is to say, I have never met them or talked to them)
10 family members
7 church friends
5 college friends
2 local homeschool friends
1 business colleague
...For a total of 40 non-me contributors over the history of The 30 Second Blog. The gold medal goes to Helen for the most comments at the time of counting (81 by March 28th). Thanks, Helen! :-) 16 people commented once and then promptly forgot I was still blogging (or were no longer interested, or developed sudden shyness).
Of course, I realize the commenters are just a subset of the readers, but the non-commenting, non-trackbacking, non-linking readership is just so hard to gauge. Some people no doubt only stop in once and never come back.

Reading my stats, I find it very difficult to know how many of the hits are from different people...maybe you have more descriptive stats that I do!
