For those of you with tons of blog traffic, this post may bore you, but I couldn't NOT write about it.
Yesterday morning, I logged onto my computer as usual and opened up my blog. However, I noticed that according to my widget showing how many other people are reading, there were six others.
I thought, "That's weird." I refreshed and then there were nine others. That was really weird. Good, but weird.
I checked sitemeter and saw that 866 people had already visited since I checked the night before. 221 people in just the previous hour. I hadn't had that kind of traffic since I wrote about Tom Brady and Gisele!
"Who are these people and where are they coming from?" I wondered. I checked my referrals and found that they were coming from Yahoo! News under Most Blogged - Elections. I've noticed that they had linked to me before, but I usually wasn't the first blog that was listed and the traffic was increased, but not like this. This time I was the first blog on the main page. I took a screen shot and tried to copy it into my photo software, but couldn't figure it out. I copied it and scanned it into my computer. That worked, but the photo quality isn't the greatest.
But you get the point. My post from yesterday, A Pennsylvania Story, made it to the big time! And I finally broke my 50,000 visitors mark! Yippeee Yahoooo!!
