Thanks, Rob, I guess. I see Acidman's readers are batting against my lamp, and find he gave one of my bits a link.
The other day he was carping about his traffic, but I don't think that anybody who can triple my Saturday traffic with one link has a thing to worry about.
One blognomenon I have noted, is that on days when I feel frisky, and go to a lot of different blogs and leave pithy comments, my traffic appears to increase substantially, as folks follow the bread crumbs back.
You new bloggers, make a note of it. Just don't be (too much of) an asshole, and don't feign interest, BE interested. Be yourself.
If they like you, they will come. If they hate you, they will come, too.
Those, we ban.
