Growing fast!

I checked in on my dashboard this morning to find a kind of shocking surprise:


Given that there are just under 2 million blogs in existence (although admittedly probably only a fraction are active non-spam blogs), being on this list is quite amazing to me. How many minutes are remaining out of my 15?

I’m on here because of a spike in traffic from yesterday’s post, which was linked to at RateYourStudents which evidently has a lot more readers than I thought it did. I’ve gotten almost 400 page views for that one article since 7 PM and nearly 600 page views in the last 36 hours, which is more traffic than I often get for the entire blog for a week! I guess it’s a very timely topic for a lot of people, which is why I blogged it in the first place.

So again, welcome to all new readers. Be sure to sample my Top 12 posts lists for more stuff I’ve kicked around here.

    Fastest growing blogs.
    That’s how I got here, and I’m glad I did.
    I check the list every once in a while and it’s usually disappointing.
