The underlying cause of the hockey stick graph
No, not that hockey stick graph, this one:
Thanks to a link to this post from Hobart over at geology.com/news, this blog has finally surpassed the 500 unique visitors per day mark. I was happily pluggin’ along between 100 and 150 per day for several weeks. It’s amazing what one link can do.
I’m not a ‘professional’ blogger, I don’t have any ads on my site, I’m not trying to sell a book, I don’t have a blog that simply links to something I wrote on another blog, I’m not planning on selling any merchandise … so I’m not too concerned with my hit count. A nerdy blog like this basically attracts other nerds; and specialized ones at that. I guess I’d rather have fewer, but more engaged and more interested readers, than multitudes of passers-by that quickly click through. So, hopefully, at least a couple people out of those 400 or so new visitors will come back again.
(hmm…looks like there’s a ‘little ice age’ from 10/20 to 10/27)
