Choosing the license really comes down to what you want to see with the code; if you want to maintain control and ensure that people modifying it make those changes available, the GPL is fine (but yes, it will reduce the number of people willing to use it). If you primarily just want to know that people who would find it useful might pick it up and use it, a more permissive license would help. But don't let anyone peer-pressure you into changing licenses. Figure out your goals and license your code accordingly.
