I am in the midst of adding a reader count to the articles. It's not terribly accurate since many people read the articles via an RSS reader (I'd have to use a web pixel or something to track that).
Right now the issue is caching, currently the site only updates its cache when something changes (by me, or a comment) so the numbers aren't real time. I will probably clear the cache once per hour or something so that the counts will update. Articles from the past couple of days are incorrect (and mostly zero).
