Is it worth it? newsvine furl google yahoo netscape

I changed the focus of this site nearly nine months ago. I took the site from being a personal site to being focused on real news. With the focus of most news being on celebrity gossip and sensationalized crime, I thought a voice of reason exposing the news that really matters might be a good idea.

I have tinkered with the format a few times trying to attract more readership, but with the exception of a couple of lucky breaks where I got out ahead of the curve on a story, traffic has been completely flat. I'm getting about forty page views in a typical day -- and that's only slightly better than when I first started.

Does what I'm doing matter to anyone reading this? I'd really like to know.
