The more important number to look at is the views and favorited items in my arty sets. It is silent feedback on what works for viewers. To that end I know if I am striking a cord somewhere and use that info to help me determine what images get a simple matting and others go the whole 9 yards and framed for shows.
The danger is in letting stats interfere with meandering down artistic paths to explore. So far it hasn't discouraged me from exploring anything, but strengthened the resolve to explore what interests me. I guess being a statistician has its merits even though it is dangerously close to cube dwelling activities.
Regardless you can follow my daily photo-blogging, raw image samplings and final works on my Flickr.
