Question to Readers???

I'm wondering for all the folks from all over the world how the site is loading up? Do you find the site slow to load? I'm also wondering if all the graphics on the left side are really necessary? There are some that I find that I can do without and others that seem to slow the pages loading up even on my home computer.

Other questions I have for the readers are about my feed. One of the mind boggling things that I can't get over or understand is that the feed for Papamoka Straight Talk generates more traffic than the actual site? Can anyone take a stab at explaining how that all works? On a regular basis the feedburner feed gets three to four times more traffic than the actual blog does and I'm wondering how that is even possible?

How are the pictures loading up for you on your computer? What about the video's that have been posted? Are they viewable for you?

Just a reminder... If you have a permanent link to Papamoka Straight Talk and you do not see one in the sidebar then please let me know. Family friendly, no porn or mega violence sites.

Needless to say, this is an open post on questions you have about the site and things you might like to see gone or things you might like to see added. Feel free to speak your mind and I appreciate all of your feedback.

Take care of you!
Papamoka

I'm on steenkin' dialup, Papamoka, so my comment won't be an indicator of how your site loads for most visitors. It loads comparably to other blogger sites for me, and the small images and doodads in your sidebar finish loading while I read. The text loads first, which is good. When you are calling scripts and text from external sites and services, this can take just as long as images to load. I don't notice anything obnoxious though.

Your site's feed has more hits because people are subscribed to it for reading in whatever reader they use, like Google Reader, Bloglines, or maybe their e-mail clients. This is a good thing too. It means we are interested in what you have to say, and the feed subscription makes it so we don't miss anything.

Thanks Chell!

Question back at ya... In my feedburner account it says I have anywhere from 17 to 27 readers a day but the item use is anywhere from 140 to 274 per day? Are those hits or just my feed is being used or read by that many people somewhere else?

Subscribers are the number of people FeedBurner deems are actually subscribed to your feed. Hits, from what I gather, are potential readers, those who haven't subscribed, but I think it could also be some existing subscribed readers. I'm not 100% clear on "item use," but it seems to tally when people (subscribed and not subscribed) click on links or other items you post. So your best measure of subscribed readers through FeedBurner is "subscribers."

"Guru"- more like "big goof." :)
