Metrics are meaningless unless in the right context. In this case, my "right" context is purely a "feel-good-factor".
In April 2011, I published the "Agile QA Process" paper on SlideShare. I am very happy to see it has received over 30000 views and has been downloaded over 1400 times!
On a similar note, I created a mindmap for Test Insanse - titled - "Agile QA - Capabilities & Skills". That also seems to be hitting a good note - with almost 1000 views in under 25 days!
So in this case - Metrics are fun! I don't mind this ego boost to continue writing more, and sharing more!
