Kristjan Wager points out to me that Respectiful Insolence was listed as the Blog of the Day by the L.A. Times on Monday.
Oddly enough, I hadn’t noticed any traffic coming my way from the link…
“. . . often-cranky ramblings . . .” is “good”? 🙂

Man believed to be using a laptop is killed in car crash
YUBA CITY, CALIF. — A man who authorities say appeared to be driving while using his laptop computer died Monday when his car crossed into oncoming traffic and collided with a Hummer.
California Highway Patrol officers found the victim’s computer still running and plugged into the cigarette lighter of his 1991 Honda Accord.

A client of mine has had his web site featured in a bunch of national papers, and it seems only the NY Times brought any traffic.
There is also the story of ActiveWords, a software application which when reviewed in USA Today got only 32 downloads.
Geuss you have to be mentioned in Wired, or one of the other tech-savy magazines, to get any traffic-increase.
I wonder if PZ gets any traffic increase by being mentioned in magazines, newspapers and radio shows?
