My visitors

I’ll be honest: this site is not receiving a lot of visitors. Sometimes I have the feeling that I am the only one reading my texts. And I know exactly why. The main reason is that this site is not so interesting. And that is because I am not a great writer.
That sounds really pessimistic, but in my opinion it is realistic. My style of writing has been created at school; due to my education I mainly write down the ‘cold facts’, and try to use as less words as possible, while the sites I like to read are funny, well-written, poetic, …
The other problem this site suffers from is the subjects. I mainly write about two subjects: my life in Lleida, which is only interesting to the people who know me, and some technological news, which van also be found on a thousand other sites.
But I am like this, and this is my site. Even though not a lot of people are reading my writings, I really appreciate the people who _do_ take the time to read it. Because they are interested in my life now that I am living far away. Or because they are interested in some technological information I have been writing about (I hope that you could use the information I gave you). Or because they accidentally came here looking for something that is nor here (most people arriving on my site through a search engine are looking for Spanish curse words or serial numbers). No matter why they are visiting this site, I appreciate it.
But still, deep in my heart I keep hoping that one day this site will have a group of enthusiastic regular readers posting comments on the things I write. To make this dream come true, I only have to do one thing: write better, more interesting texts. I’ve got work to do!

  1. Jeroentje,
    ik blijf je site ook wel lezen hoor.
    Wanneer kom je weer naar nederland?
    Groeten van de papa van niemand 😉

  2. Hoi!
    Ik blijf toch terug komen naar je site, en blijf je teksten ook lezen, al zijn ze technisch of persoonlijk van aard. Het is toch een beetje voyeurisme zo’n weblog, maar ook zoals je schrijft, gewoon interesse in wat je doet en wat je bezighoud! Tevens vind ik je technische artikelen best interessant, misschien omdat we een beetje met dezelfde dingen ons bezig houden!
    Groetjes vanuit Nederland
    van de papa van Casper en Robin 🙂
