I still haven’t fallen back into the blogging habit since changing over from Blogger, but does anyone really care about my missing thoughts? Well, during the change-over period I got the opportunity to build up a fuller picture of my some of my readers – for the first time some people clicked on the Amazon links and bought some books!

The only book someone bought that I had actually linked-to or read was Click: What We Do Online and Why It Matters, although one of my readers also bought Web Analytics: An Hour a Day.
The most books, however, were sold to a demographic my blog had mostly been ignoring – the teenager girl into vampire romance:
I’m not sure why someone would decide to buy 4 Twilight books after reading about a monkey on Chatroulette – but that person made me £0.88!
