Okay, my little patch on the Web gets a few hundred hits a day. Fun, but nothing spectacular. Then in the last couple of hours, one innocuous post made late yesterday has suddenly racked up several hundred hits alone, making the WordPress stats graph for this blog look … weird:

graphThat spike is from the hits on just one post. Odd thing is, the referrers page gives no indication where these hits are coming from. Some sort of bot?  I dont know

    The signs are clear: it was your best post ever!

    Was it the Joe Friday bit?

    If so, I sent it around my email list. Also I link to your site from mine.

    I get about six or so hundred every day myself. It could be a bot. I get a lot of spam.

    Still, you have a good and funny blog. If it was the Joe Friday video, that would have done it.

      Yep. It was the Joe Friday video. Still going strong, too. And that reminds me I need to add your link.

    I got the link from Naomi Ragen, who sent it to her entire list. Now it is a link I will check out on my own. Keep up the good work!
