Last Thursday the number of visitors suddenly changed, because Blogger gave this blog a 'Blogs of Note' listing. I noticed this due to a significant increase in comments and it got me pretty excited. A few hours after the listing I already hit the 400 visitors and that was already a big record. The next day I monitored the statistics and couldn't believe the first 1000 and soon the second 1000 and ending the day over 4000 visitors. The next day it already slowed down and it will be interesting to see how long before it's back to normal again.
Next to the blog visitors also the blog followers and RSS subscriptions increased significantly. This is really exciting because it shows that there are people who like what I write.
Since it was the first day that I got a significant number of visitors I also has a look a the browser statistics and is was quite interesting to see that only half of the visitors was with Internet Explorer and about one third with FireFox.
I'm now curious how this will develop over time. Do any of the sudden visitors stick around and become regular visitors. In a few months we will see what happened. I will keep you updated.
