And who are you?

Dear reader,

two weeks ago I moved this blog from Nature Network to PLoS Blogs. I hope that most of my old readers have followed me here, and that I might even have a few new readers.

The Reader 1770-72

Ed Yong recently talked about how he interacts with his many, many blog readers. One important strategy he uses is to ask his readers for feedback in regular intervals – he calls it delurking. AJ Cann has picked up the idea, and on Wednesday asked the readers of his blog MicrobiologyBytes a few questions. I like them and have blatantly reused most of them:

  • Who are you and what’s your background?
  • How long have you been reading Gobbledygook?
  • Where do you read Gobbledygook – website or RSS?
  • What do you like best about Gobbledygook?
  • How could I make Gobbledygook better for you?

It would be kind if you could provide some feedback in the comments section below.
