What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Figures don't lie, but…

Okay, is someone with a big readership linking to my linkee-poo posts? 'Cause even though my posting schedule is way slower than it used to be, some of these numbers of unique views are just astronomical. I'm humbled, but I don't think it's really me. Did I get on someone's list or something?

I know, I should probably go crunch the numbers of where all these hits are coming from (there has been an increase in attempted spam and link farming lately). I just don't have the time at the moment.

Your job is well done. So revel in that. Eventually you get noticed, especially when a Jay Lake mentions he got something from you.

Hey Dr. Phil, part of it is the impostor syndrome. And I see a spike whenever Jay or the Slacktivist point back to me, but these numbers were way higher than what I see even then. It's like I'm almost popular. The other posts, the non-linkee-poo posts, all follow my regular readership numbers (which I'm happy to say that they continue to improve). But those linkee-poo numbers are a whole factor higher, which is what is causing me to wonder.
