For The Speed Readers

I've been visiting my sitemeter results less and less lately. This is in part because my schedule has changed somewhat and I don't have nearly as much free time. Mostly, it is because I'm only getting one or two visits a day week.

One of the things I have noticed is my average visit length is 0:00 long (with the exception of the individual from Italy who spent 25:06 reading my blog (or fell asleep at their desk)). Now a glass-half-full kind of guy would say that I am attracting a lot of speed readers. The type of person who can hit my blog and read an entry or two in the course of say, zero seconds. However, I am more of a half-empty kind of guy. My half-empty mentality tells me that someone clicks on my blog and quickly realizes that there is nothing of interest here and shuts their computer down in disgust.

I would like to be a little pragmatic though just in case there is a club of speed readers targeting my blog. This is for you.
