The below are Stats with visit length > 0 second. I am not sure how accurate it is but I believe some of these people do read my blog even though their length of time shows zero. This is because sometimes I get comments, but when I checked their stats, their length of time shows zero. I am not sure why.

Recently I have been exposed to the possibility of monetizing my blog. And this is not because I have suddenly become greedy. I will probably include some advertising banners and place it discreetly at the side and not in a way that will affect readers of my blog. I will probably be selective in the type of advertisement that can be placed. I will do it on a  trial basis and if it affects the blog negatively, I will take it off. However, with the extra money from these ad banner, which is not expected to be much anyway, I can do the following

i. be able to upgrade to a webhost with better features. With the contents in my own web domain, I will be able to do more things than the free blog sites.
ii. any extra I will be able to sponsor visits by lamas, Rinpoches, other Buddhist teachers, or donate for the beneficial projects. I donate quite often to FPMT projects such as their Eye Hospital in Amdo, Jade Buddha for Universal Peace, and I have even sponsored one man for a long term 3 year retreat in a Karma Kagyu center in Germany (if I remember correctly the location). That was through e-sangha before the forum ceased. Or, I can use the extra RM50 or RM100 for printing sutras. I am thinking of printing Amitabha Sutra (english version) for people to copy. In this way, people who cannot recite Amitabha's name will also be able to plant seeds of their rebirth to Amitabha Pure Land after they pass away. Any money from this blog adverts will not be enough for sure but the extra money from the ad banner will certainly help a little. I will see how it goes.

Conclusion: From the above, it appears that my readers are from other countries, rather than Malaysia. Some of my articles have also been featured in search engines such as Ask.com and visited by "stumble" and "yahoo". There was at least once where my article had been translated into another language.  So, it is not really doing that badly, considering only one person completed my poll question. I would like to thank all my readers.

i think as u are spreading the dharma, doesn't matter about how many people read, it will always be great due to your motivation and your contents...

from my heart, thanks for all your wonderful blogs about dharma and practice... i hope it inspires many people towards virtue and more positive directions in their life, and finally, liberation

you're right. As such, it motivates me to keep on going if there are people who are positively affected or influenced or even if it is just for their knowledge, based on what I wrote. It is quite difficult to balance between considering a blog as a private journal and a public one. If there is no many people reading it, it serves more as a private diary.
