bump, set, spike!
Yesterday, Blogger migrated me to its new version. It seems to be working well so far, but in addition to not being able to post for the latter half of the day, an unusual side-efect occurred.
It so happened that Planet Swank appeared on Blogger's list of recently published blogs when posting was suspended. As a result, instead of rotating off the list in a matter of minutes, it stayed on for hours, generating a staggering number of hits. My hit counter spiked to more than 750 yesterday, about 600 more than average, most of which were referred by Blogger.
Some visitors even left comments to the first post.
I hope the occurrence will result in some new regular readers, but it was rather heady for this slithering reptile to get that many hits in a day.
