I had a rather large spike in traffic last week after posting a comment over at Signals vs. Noise. It’s incredible to think about how much influence people like this have over the blog ecosystem. If I was selling a product (or even really writing posts with regularity), traffic like this could have a major impact.
Opportunity aside, with the variety of things going on these days I was just left praying that the traffic wouldn’t take off too much and push my site over. The small victories are the ones that count.
