Guy Kawasaki authors a popular blog. A very popular blog. On an average day, he might pull in 8,000 visitors (not counting RSS readers). On a good day, maybe 130,000 visitors.
I host a niche blog with a loyal but comparatively small audience. On an average day, I might attract 100 visitors (not counting RSS readers). On a good day, maybe 200 visitors. Since starting this blog, 12,500 total visitors (not counting RSS readers).
So imagine my surprise when I view my site stats today, and instead of seeing 94 visitors, I see 9,400 visitors?
A Reddit user was kind enough to post yesterday's article about the 1/3, 1/3, 1/3 Rule on Reddit. At 6:30am, I had 11 visitors. When I got home from work, 7,500 visitors. At 9:29pm, 9,400 visitors.
At it's peak, the post was in the top nine on Reddit, and in the top nine on the 'popular' page of Del.icio.us.
Ten months of hosting this blog --- over 200 posts. Today, 40% of my annual audience visited. Thank you nloadholtes for your kindness!
