Honestly, Felix. You don’t have to tell people to ignore a blogger. It’s what they do anyway.

Who knew that no one does that anymore? What should I be doing?

1) This was mostly PR for Ritholz.
2) There are few more exciting words than “RevPar.” Say it a few times after your morning coffee. Vroom vroom.

My guess would be that there’s far more people who read the site directly than through an RSS feed.

There is a reason AR and Footnoted got bought out. Organic generation of bloging is tough to get right. On aggregation, well aggregators = time savers.

However NC has also started displaying the number of “readers”. I was surprised to find out that it only has 12,000 readers. For comparison Baseline Scenario has 14,500 readers.

Based on the number comments I always thought NC had more readers. That must mean NC readers comment much more frequently than those of other blogs. I guess that’s because Yves Smith often replies to them, so there’s some dialogue going on. Simon Johnson never replies, James Kwak rarely.
