(In all answers, "you" means the person responding.)

I've been meaning to post something like this for a while. I'm curious how many readers I have, and I'm also curious how many people come directly to my journal's page. There are certain elements, such as the "Thought of the Moment" sidebar, that people who read me through their Friends' list or an RSS feed won't see.

Incidentally, LiveJournal made some changes recently, so that my default URL is now http://philaros.livejournal.com. That URL has actually worked since last June or so when I bought membership, but now it's the default. It's probably a good idea for you to change your bookmarks to that URL, if you've still got www.livejournal.com/users/philaros bookmarked.

Oh by the way, if you're reading my journal through your own Friends' page, you can just put down however often you check your Friends' page to answer how often you read my journal.
