At midnight last night, my blog became “Cool Site of the Day.” I normally get about 25 hits a day; so far today I’ve gotten over 1,200. At this rate I’ll end up with about 1,600 visits for the day. That’s 65 times more than usual. Wow. This graphic makes things far more clear.
I haven’t done so well in terms of my Cool Site rating: I’m at 4.7 on a scale of 1-10, which ranks me #8 of 11 sites so far this month. Oh, well.
My strategy for today, insofar as one exists, is to post frequently. I plan to continue this tactic for the next several days as well, in an attempt to keep a few of my first-time visitors as regulars. I’m most interested in what my daily visitor rate will be say, two weeks from now.
