Thank You for the Views
Yesterday, I posted my WS Game 1 recap at round 11 a.m. When I got home from school (3 p.m.), I had a decent 65 views. Now here’s the focus of today’s post: when I checked again at 10 p.m., I had a whopping 324 views! I know some of you are thinking, “This is a sports blog, why is he writing about this?” Well, I have my reasons. I noticed that about 270 of my 324 views came from a website called StumbleUpon. When somebody finds your work interesting, they might click on the ‘Stumble‘ button at the bottom of the post! If that happens, the reader publishes it for millions people to see! If the work keeps getting ‘Stumbled’ (like Digg), it will grow in popularity until the whole Stumble community sees it! Obviously my work didn’t make it that far, but I was still shocked I got so many views just from this one website.
In addition to educating you on http://www.stumbleupon.com/home/, I wanted to say thank you to whoever ‘Stumbled’ my work. To me, this shows much more than just a ‘Like’ or a ‘Comment’. This shows me that you guys want other people to see it, which is just so heartening.
Once again, thank you to whoever Stumbled it, thank you for the subsequent views.
But most of all, thanks for reading!
Till next time,
