April traffic report

The hit count was about 52,000 for the month of April, with fairly steady daily totals throughout. I can't actually remember anything exciting from a traffic-watching point of view for the month, so I'll take this opportunity to say thank you as always for reading. I really appreciate it.

So, how does the growing popularity of RSS aggregators effect SiteMeter stats? I'm assuming that hits via Bloglines, etc. don't show up?

Sitemeter captures some RSS feed referrers. I don't think it's that many, but I can't say for sure. I should note that these monthly totals do not come from Sitemeter but from my webhost, which provides a script to process the logfiles. The raw logs seem to capture Bloglines referrals pretty well.
