Just wondering

Semi-rhetorical question for blog owners: do you prefer to have regular readers of everything you write, or one-off visitors arriving via searches for specific topics?

It's not 'either/or', of course, but without devaluing the former, I think I prefer the latter.
I'm not entirely sure why.  Perhaps it's related to the fact that I'm not a single-issue blogger, many (most?) entries stand alone, and I'm not looking for an evolving debate.


I'd rather have some regular readers; although I blog about a variety of subjects, I hope I blog enough about each one to encourage people to come back.

My blog doesn't exist in isolation; most of my regular readers are people I know through other internet sites and mailing lists, or in real life.

I prefer regular readers, although I do get a few comments from people passing through. I'd get more but I close comments after 60 days to prevent spam.
