It is sort of a weird thing when we have an indicator, a statistic, a number for something, it always creates some kind of feedback loop. Some of them are useful, some of them are not. I find it quite useful to have a little graph that shows how many different people have looked at my weblog every day. I guess I feel it is reassuring that the numbers are gradually inching higher. Must mean I write something that somebody finds worth reading. But it also might make you look for meaning where there isn't much. If one day the number goes down quite a bit compared with the day before, I might mistakenly think that what I wrote the day before wasn't to people's liking, or if it suddenly goes up, I might think that people suddenly love what I wrote. And I might try adjusting what I do, based on the numbers. And I'll go crazy. The best advice would probably be to continue doing what I like doing, and care very little whether 2 people or 2000 people read what I write. Likewise, it is probably not very useful to compare one's readership numbers with those of other weblogs. There are many other possible reasons for higher or lower numbers than quality of the content.

J'ai la chance d'avoir une incbyoarle épicerie orientale tout près de chez moi : La corbeille d'Orient. J'y touve toujours tout ce que je cherche. Ce mélange Espig pour Pains d'épices est un sachet tout bête à 1 euro 50 qui contient cannelle, anis vert, gingembre, muscade et girofle... Tu peux donc faire ton mélange perso si tu n'en trouves pas ;-)A très bientôt sur le www
