Recently I was at a chemistry workshop in the US and a physics one in Korea. It was really encouraging for me to hear from a range of people that they read this blog and find it stimulating. I particularly appreciated that my readers range in seniority and are from groups whose work I respect (and would like to influence).
Sometimes I have worried if the 500 hits per day are coming from non-scientists searching for random topics on Google. This must be the case for "Who is following who?" which is actually about orbital hybridisation, but has received 1000+ page views!
But, now I know I am reaching my target audience. So, thanks to those who took the initiative to talk to me.
