No you aren't the only one. It all depends which group (loosely speaking) of bloggerd you ask the question of. Go to a make money blogging forum and take note that bloggers there are focused on "traffic" and not targeted readers who come by way of search engines looking for sprecific content.
Targeted readers are more likely to leave comments, become part of a the regular readers of your blog, backlink to your posts in posts of their own, become subscribers and are more likely to recommend your blog to others they know in the same niche. They will retweet to their own followers the links to posts of yours that they think contain valuable content.
The largest niche in the blogsophere is the make money niche. Make money bloggers are looking for ad clickers as their focus is on making money from advertising clicks and from affiliate link clicks and from text link clicks ... yada ... yada .. yada. Some have blogs equipped with PPC (pay per click) so they get paid for every click a visitor makes on their site. The make money blogs that have "do-follow" links evoke many "hollow" comments simply posted to get the do-follow backlink. Many also have "keywordluv" which allow the commenters to insert their "keyword" where the username goes on a comment form.
Here at wordpress.com which I refer to as being behind the garden wall we blog for personal validation. We cannot have blogger initiated advertising on our blogs and that eliminates the bullshit about making millions of line through pyramid and ponzi style schemes, keyword stuffing, search engine gaming, splogging, spamming and plagiarism are not the order of the day. We value targeted readers over traffic, and readers who leave comments, become regular readers and subscribers. We like it when they retweet our links but we don't devote hours of every day creating pseudo relationships via 140 character blurts like make money bloggers do.
