Hits on Dyneslines have been modestly increasing lately, even though a good deal of the gloss on Blogger has faded. I know, of course, that I will never achieve a large following, in fact not much of a following at all. There are several reasons for this. Most of the time I do not focus on current events, but deal with remote or arcane topics--at least ones perceived as such. Another reason is my eclecticism. Not long ago I made a list of my intellectual interests. There were more than a hundred items. To be sure, I hardly ever comment on cartography or pre-Columbian monuments herein. But the eclecticism is enough to deter some readers, who are used to consulting blog sites that address a single set of topics.
