Over the weekend I've been reading everything I can find to see if I could find some sort of clue as to what the outcome of Tuesday's presidential election might be. I've seen a lot but not enough to definitively say what to expect on election night.
Meanwhile I looked at my blog stats today and I noticed a run-up of readership that start about 6 months ago has continued - up to November 1st when there was a sudden, dramatic drop off in readership. It's hard to explain. I don't think I've said anything to offend my readership. I can only conclude that given the proximity to the election either (1) readers of political content are focusing on the big sites right now (2) internet readership is down the last few days or (3) Google is skewing searches away from conservative websites, or at least mine.
I think it may be a combination of factors, but just like the election, chalk it up to something I can't quite figure out with certainty right now.
