Welcome childless men under 35

According to Alexa jgc.org is very popular in the US (sometimes bouncing up into the top 15,000 sites, not blogs, by traffic in the US), but it's particularly popular with childless men under 35 who browse from work and have no college education. The final part surprises me, you would have thought that a college education was a prerequisite for coming here.


If you're a visitor to the site who has no college education, but enjoys the content here, please post a comment on what you like. I'm fascinated to hear.

And if it isn't obvious: welcome!

I just recently subscribed via RSS after reading your GAGA-1 post because I'm considering playing around with an arduino. I have no college education because I'm a senior in high school.

Well... I think Alexa only knows about people who have their toolbar installed. So it is more of a summary of what kind of people think the Alexa toolbar is a good idea.

Personally I only match the male part.

I'm a childless, un-college-educated man who often reads at work, (following links from HN, etc) though I'm under the age of 35.

And I wouldn't say that a degree is required to read your blog. It's not exactly LtU.

I’m slightly under 35, I have no children that I know of, I am not college educated, and I do browse from work. I love the site, your writing, and your topics. It’s kind of disappointing to hear that you felt college education is a must. There are topics that are beyond my level of understanding, especially when you get into complex math equations and the like. It does not mean that I don’t take the time to further research what is being discussed. I would venture to guess that your audience mentioned may be like me, uneducated due to an immediate need to start work directly out of high school. I would say that intelligence and the ability to comprehend advanced logic and thinking are not always correlated to the presence of higher education.

Ill just go ahead and wing a guess that the vast majority of blog crawlers on the planet are childless men under 35 with no college degree. It's just a halo effect overlighting your survey.
