Or is it Digged? Not sure what the kids are calling it.
This blog’s been running for some time at about 1,500 visitors a day – occasionally rising to 2,000 or just above. That’s not bad although clearly not in the same league as Pharyngula, Bad Astronomy or even Respectful Insolence. Anyway, last Sunday The Bad Astronomer linked to my How do you prove photography to a blind man? post from two years ago. That link gave me a boost to just over 3,000 visitors last Sunday – quite a lot for a weekend.
Someone obviously liked the post and it was submitted to StumbleUpon, Reddit and especially Digg. The SiteMeter tells the story:
A lot more people than normal (approximately 110,000 more) were exposed to the skeptical view of psychics and parapsychology. And perhaps some will stay around, read the “Classic Skeptico Posts” linked in the right hand column. I hope they enjoy it. And thanks for the plug, Phil.
One problem though – as you can see, March is now a very impressive month for visitor numbers compared with previous months. April’s going to have its work cut out to keep up!
