Who's reading?

If blogging has its narcissistic elements, why not add voyeuristic as well?
The Naked City has added a little Sitemeter bug at the bottom of the blog, and now Mary Newsom can see where her readers are, when they're visiting and where they're coming from.
Other visitors can click on the bug as well.
Actually, there is business value here: We always say it's important to know who your readers are. And this feature allows bloggers to measure their traffic, to answer Cheryl's question, "What Drives Traffic?"
Perhaps an added bonus: Will such a little bug deter nasty posters?
Bonus No. 2: Don't go to the other Naked City blog by mistake. Unless you're about to spend an academic year in Boston.
