Where are all these people coming from?
Traffic has picked up markedly this week, and I can't think of any good reason why. The usual 800-a-day average, after sliding into the middle 700s during the summer, has somehow jumped over 1,000; even Sunday drew 916. I'm not getting any extra linkage that I know about: I'm still ranked just above 3,000th in Technorati, and still in the middle of the TTLB Large Mammal phylum. And while I've had a couple pieces on the Norman splodeydope, arguably the biggest non-basketball story in these parts, I'm hardly leading the way on any of this stuff.
No, I'm not crowding my bandwidth limit or anything. (My host is projecting 8 GB for the month, which is a lot by the standards I'm used to but far from getting into the dreaded Extra-Cost Zone.) But if by some fluke I'm actually doing something right, I'd like to know just what the heck it is.

It's me Charles! I just like to hit the refresh button. Over and over again. I find it soothing.
That's funny, because this last week my own traffic has DIED. Went from 600-700 a day to barely scraping 300 now.
And no idea why.
I'm holding strong at my usual 5 visitors.
maybe it's because you spelled baloney bologna, which is the correct spelling; many people are drawn to the orthographically superior, as a month to a flame. i think nietzche was the first to point out this phenomenon.
I've also noticed that my traffic has climbed for non-obvious reasons. However, I'm also gradually moving upward in the ecosystem -- even though my inbound links total has dropped as a result, apparently, of NZB tweaking the algorithm or some such. Nothing else would explain my gaining ground while losing links.
I'm here because of Joel Henry Hinrichs III. I'm hoping for some extra enlightenment from a local about what is going on in Oklahoma, and it was either your place or the Hansons' website.
