post #108: going from 50 hits to 5000 hits: what did it & then what

March 20, 2008

Last weekend a fellow poet blogger and I were talking over around and through a table of loudmouth rowdy poets. He was saying how great he felt when he wrote something and got a huge blip in his blog stats–and how it’s been a let down since.

Know what I mean? he asked.

Oh, yeah, I said. I went from 50 hits a day to 5000 in two days!

What did you write about? he asked.

The lunar eclipse. Action like that will probably never happen again, I said. But you never know.

>>this post, #108, is an auspicious number

>>>10,000 total hits in 6 months (but nothing like the growth of stuff white people like!)
>> written from the Ahwahnee Hotel, Yosemite Valley, winter 08

here it is so you know what it looks like…
