cwestbrook describes the benefit of this best in his own words:
"Imagine how it would feel to have those numbers and those people looking at your blog after it’s been frustratingly quiet for months. It would be tremendous. That blogger would be permanently bolstered, and it would all be because of the strength of their content, and anything that allows bloggers that focus fully on content to succeed is great for the medium."I'm optimistic enough with a positive perspective on human nature to think this would be great.
