I tried getting used to the Google Reader, but it's just weird, people. It keeps recommending blogs of Russian-speaking immigrant from all over the world to me. I only follow 2 Russian-language blogs out of 235, and I really don't enjoy being put into a box with Russian-speaking immigrants as if I had nothing else to offer to humanity.
I wonder if Google Reader only recommends my blog to other Russian-speaking immigrants. If so, then I shouldn't expect any regular readers from that source. This is obviously not my audience. V. and el are my only readers who belong in that group, and both of them are quite exceptional. I also have 2 readers from Russia and zero from Ukraine. Which just goes to show how relevant my people find me.
