The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

25 December 2004

Ever so slightly spiked

I mean, really:

All this from a five-word post — and five short words at that — from Michelle Malkin. (The link was to this impertinent observation, which also prompted a Freeper thread.)

I mean, this was a slow day otherwise. Of the 3,080 visitors yesterday, 2,554 came to see that one silly little item. Needless to say, I'm inclined to think that the increased Malkinization of blogdom is a Good Thing.

Wow! And I get giddy when I hit 100 visitors in a day! I hope you are having a nice Christmas, Charles.

I'm taking advantage of that Peace On Earth business: quiet, unruffled, unperturbed. As I get older, I appreciate it more.

She could at least do the tease page in the back of the mag. Those stats certainly look erect.

I'm not holding my breath.

Hey..Merry Christmas and all that.

Hope you're enjoying the tree in the "new" digs.

Not a bad day at all, really, which (considering some of the horrible holidays I've had in the past) is definitely a step ahead.

You need to follow up and milk the surge by writing a post indicating that Michelle Malkin has obliged you with a couple fine looking peaks and you have graphic evidence to prove it.

Er ... nevermind.

Traffic yesterday having been two-thirds of what it was Friday, I'd hate to be in the position of accusing her of, um, asymmetry.

WOWSA!!!!! I would have fainted if that happened to my blog!!

It's those teaser posts that make people click through.
