Without the forums I suspect his traffic would go down by 2 thirds Im guessing.
I for one dont read anyones blog but his. And I only do because I come to the forums. Im so glad though because the blogs have been life changing for me.
The forum only has 46,000 registered users, total. That's what, .5% of the traffic the blog gets every month? And most of those users aren't even active.
Even if every single registered user stopped checking the blogs if Steve killed the forums, that wouldn't make a dent on his blog traffic.
Or in other words...we are the 1%!
