Here’s a potential positive spin (with no data or evidence). I’m wondering if the new home page may be potentially exposing readers to new writers. This could create a situation where readers click to sample a new writer to simply check it out. We don’t know if our current reads are coming from followers or not.

I mention this because I have found myself “sampling” more since the upgrade.

Just a theory.
