I've learned that the frum community is not nearly as homogenous as I thought (and I didn't think it was all that homogenous to begin with).
That there is a place where people can express their ideas, have them put to the test of public criticism and be able to react to those criticisms.
That most of my traffic comes from the same twenty or so sites. Except...
For some reason, every third or fourth day, I'll get a bunch of hits from other Blogspot blogs with absolutely no connection to my blog, Judaism or any other subject that I have any interest in. None of these blogs reference my blog at all. I might think that it's someone randomly clicking through the "Next Blog" button, but it's always about 40-50 hits, and all the hits come together... not randomly distributed through the day, as you would expect.
That certain features don't work well with the template I've chosen, but I'm not going to change it because it's too much trouble.
That blogging takes more of your time than I thought it would... and I'm not a particularly active poster (2-3 posts a week).
That frum Jews, like the rest of humanity, has our share of people who cannot be reasoned with.
That no one has bought any shares of my blog on Blogshares.
That it's not easy to keep track of all the comments that you leave on other people's blogs.
That there are people who have some of the same thoughts and feelings that I have had but kept quiet about for a long time.
