I've been following baseball blogs for a while now (I used to have one of my own, but it was too time consuming and not as rewarding traffic-wise as I would have liked) and I found something interesting. I started visiting this blog very near its inception. I think I found the link on Baseball Musings (by David Pinto), which I tend to think of as one of the early baseball blogs. Now, I'm sure that there were plenty of blogs before David's, but it was pretty much the first one I found of its quality and depth that was created by a pure baseball fan who actually had baseball stats experience. (In case you're wondering, my earliest baseball stats book was a Bill James back in 1987 or so).
Like I said, I found this blog near its inception, and have been following it ever since, but I always thought of it as a more 'niche' baseball blog; it is, after all, a minor league blog (check the title), though all baseball topics are discussed here. The thing that I found interesting today is that this blog gets 20 more page views then Baseball Musings does. I guess this is because of the Diary section, which forces people to click on links and visit other pages, whereas Baseball Musings is a 'classic' blog where everything is on the one page (except for comments, which is a popup window).
I'm not sure where I'm going with this long, useless diary, but I just found it interesting about the page views and traffic differences. I guess sometimes assumptions, and perceptions, are wrong.
