Even though today is Saturday, my site meter tells me that Scientific Life is getting hundreds more hits than usual, even if this was a weekday (Scientific Life received more than 1,100 hits by noon, NYC time). So, worried that last night's party with PZ and pals was more entertaining than I recalled, I had to check Scientific Life to make sure that no one had posted a picture of me without my shirt on, or something equally er,
But instead, I found that besides the NYTimes mention of Living the Scientific Life (hey, that's ME!!), the whole lot of us at ScienceBlogs were linked by the very high-traffic BoingBoing, and of course, PZ is adding fuel to the fire with his weak attempt to refute the sad, cruel truth about the picture I took of him last night.
Nice job, Hedwig. I headed here exactly to tell you the NYTimes mentioned your blog, but you beat me to it.
I posted this comment over on Tara's blog, but it fits here as well:
BoingBoing beats everyone down - Instalanche, Pharyngulanche and Atrioslanche look puny compared to getting Boinged. And I should know: When I started Circadiana, I posted the first post in the evening and the sitemeter detected (my own) three visits. When I woke up in the morning there were more than 1000 visits on it already - Cory linked to it and all hell broke loose - that one post is still making the rounds on delicious, stumbleupon, LiveJournals etc, more than a year later, and I still, to this day, get hits from that BB link!
