So I’ve been quite happy blogging away in relative obscurity for the last 9 or so months. Don’t get me wrong, I do actually think my site is fairly interesting, I don’t just blog, I do try to write stuff of value. But, up till now, I haven’t even bothered to do any promotion, outside of simply submitting myself to Google.
Anyway, last weekend, for the first time, I thought it would be nice to get some traffic. Not a lot mind you, just a little.
Loa and behold, this morning The Register here in the UK links to one of my articles. El Reg, if your not aware, is almost on par with the mighty Slashdot in terms of traffic and overall usage.
After just a few hours, the article has become the most read on their site, which of course means my meagre little site has been literally crushed under the deluge of users.
*sigh*, be careful what you wish for fellow bloggers!
