Who Are You People?

So this blog gets like 200+ hits a day and has 180+ subscribers. Probably 100-150 of those hits go directly to my helpful tutorials, but who are the other 50-100 of you that read my blog every day? If you read this and comment telling me who you are, what your blog is (if you have one) and what you do for a living, I’ll enter you into a drawing to win a $10 gift card to Amazon.com or something lame like that. I just want to learn a bit more about who’s reading my content so that I can write more specifically to you.

I started this blog quite a few years ago (my first post was November 5th, 2007). I didn’t have a very clear view of what I wanted to write about when I began, so EE has evolved to be a conglomerate of tutorials and my random life experiences, successes, failures and whatever else. I’m thinking about starting a separate blog that is more devoted to my affiliate marketing efforts specifically to narrow things down a bit.

Anyways, let me know who you are. I’d love to meet you. Oh…and thanks for reading. I think you’re cool for it.

  1. My name is Nathan Smith, and I read your blog almost daily. Enter my sorry can into that drawing. (btw I just rated this post a 5, so you should put my name in the drawing 5 times)

  2. I read on occasion if you have something interesting. What i do for a living is to make sure that matt knows that he’s on the bottom of the food chain.

  3. Yeah… I read here quite often but keep it on the down-low. I don’t want to skew the results of your posts. You know like observing the wave/particle theory. Just being observed by the wrong/right people can change the outcome. I was talking to Chase about this today, if you aren’t familiar with it here is the simplest video there is on it:


    In management theory its called “what gets measured gets managed” though and it is another case where science applies to the business world on some level(s). This is best illustrated in the “Hawthorne Effect” as found here:


    In the 1920s the Western Electric Company had a factory at Cicero, Illinois, just
    outside Chicago. Between 1924 and 1932, a series of field studies and experiments
    were carried out on workers at the plant. The research was funded by the National
    Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences and undertaken on
    behalf of General Electric, the largest manufacturer of light bulbs in the United
    States. The aim was to assess the influence of lighting on workforce productivity,
    and therefore to determine the level of illumination which produced the best work
    When the researchers discovered that productivity almost always increased after
    a change in illumination, regardless of whether the light was increased or
    decreased, they performed a second set of experiments, supervised by Harvard
    University professors Elton Mayo, Fritz Roethlisberger and William J. Dickson, in order
    to find out why their measurement methods were unreliable.
    They introduced other changes into the work environment and studied the
    responses to them by a sample of five young women. Once again, whatever
    change was made to the conditions, the women’s productivity almost invariably
    These studies engendered the expression ‘the Hawthorne effect’: an important
    advance in industrial and organizational psychology and in organizational behavior,
    whose general meaning was that when people are being observed by
    researchers, they temporarily change their behavior or performance. The definition
    has since been extended to state that people change their behaviors and
    performances in response to any increase in the attention paid to them.

    Keep up the good work… I’ll be watching 🙂

  4. We’re a software company in Ogden that provides tools for affiliate marketers. I found your blog because I’m interested in knowing who the affiliate marketers in Utah are.
