Today I learnt…

…getting a minor link in passing in an io9 article makes getting linked by reddit look like a normal day. Seriously: the scale is so different that on my stats chart everything up to the moment io9 linked me is now just a straight line… I had more views yesterday than in March, and March was a good month…

Not that I’m complaining or anything. Or excited, really – 90% of those views probably just saw how ridiculously long my post was and closed the window, 10% prodded a few pages and then closed the window, and maybe a handful might check back some time. Which isn’t a problem, but I’m not expecting any long-term effect of this brief public exposure. [I’m slightly curious why io9’s writer chose to link to me in the first place – I’m flattered, but it’s not like I’m well-known. I’m guessing they just googled the book to collect thoughts when they were writing the post and mind happened to come up for some reason.]

But anyway, if any of you io9 people happen to have hung around to read this: hi! Feel free to poke around, and feel freer to comment on anything.

    Shit man, what got linked?

  2. My review of Lord Foul’s Bane, linked in passing from an io9 article on pre-GRRM writers who wrote gritty and realistic fantasy.

    Those bumps always feel nice, even though they never really amount to anything, other than to remind you how minuscule a guppy you are in the ocean of the Web . . . . . or is that just me?
