Wow, what a huge week here on the blog. Monday saw the biggest traffic day ever with 9,722 visitors to the blog in just one day. The last huge traffic spike happened when I accidentally posted about br1tney, par1s and l1ndsay’s fondness for showing off their naked cr0tches, this time it was for a much better reason. The traffic was mostly from Stumbleupon to see the educational Snoskred made 5 MILLION DOLLARS online this year! post. Tuesday saw 6730 visitors. By Wednesday things had started to calm down a little, with 766 visitors but by then the traffic had begun to flow from other places who had posted links to the article.
In total by the end of the week almost 20,000 people have dropped by the blog. They stayed for a while, too – on average visiting several pages and I saw quite a jump in my feedburner stats which means many people subscribed to me on RSS – a big welcome to the new readers – and a hello how’s it going to all readers! Drop by and comment from time to time, I’d like to hear from you. Some people say Stumbleupon traffic doesn’t do that but I have to disagree.
As you can see, StumbleUpon can drive some serious traffic your way, if lots of people like what you wrote and stumble it as well – a big thank you to all the people who stumbled that article and helped to get the word out there about check scams, as well as a HUGE thank you to everyone who posted a link to the article on their own blogs and helped to educate their readers. Bloggers you can still help out, there’s a list of how you can help in the post.
The high amount of visitors is even more amazing because at the time the blogosphere was virtually deserted thanks to the Harry Potter finale book being released. Blogs came to a standstill as people read for hours. Therefore I got a lot of work done, too – a lot of new blogs added to the sidebar mostly.

Here On The Blog –
I asked the lurkers to jump out and say hi and some of them did, on the hump day I wrote about political correctness, I posted some lovely photos from a couple of outings, I had a bit of a day off on Friday thanks to a headache but I put some kitty photos up to keep you amused and yesterday I wrote an article about how to write your own blog wrap ups.
Coming Up –
This week I’m hoping to take a look at writing in conjunction with Cugat but we haven’t had a chance to chat about it yet. We’ll see what happens. As yet there’s no topic for this week’s Hump Day Hmmm but keep an eye out at Julie’s blog The Ravin Picture Maven to see what it will be, if you’d like to join in – and please do join in, the more the merrier!
Over the next week I want to check out some of my older posts and label them, so if you see anything extra coming through on the feeds, I apologise in advance. Also I am hoping to do a visit run to all the blogs in my sidebar, just to say hi, take a look at your blog designs, see if anyone moved without telling me. If not this week then it might be next week.
