A link from Say Uncle is good for about 800 visits.
He linked on Friday to a blog post on Tuesday and my sitemeter jumped about 800 visits.
I write this blog to amuse myself, to keep in touch with loved ones and to jot down stuff I might want to remember later. It's a journal of what's going on in my life. I check the sitemeter once a month or so from idle curiosity.
This little blog gets about 250 visits a day. When it jumps to over 1000, I start looking at the referral logs.
