May traffic report

May was my busiest month ever by a lot, with about 8100 visits, according to Sitemeter. That's over 1500 hits more than my previous high water mark. Without a doubt, the story of the Killer D's drove much of that traffic. Links from usual suspects like Atrios and Daily Kos, links from new places like Political Wire, The Burnt Orange Report, and a Salon Table Talk thread, and folks who came here having read my coverage at the Political State Report were among the big contributors. There appears to have been a residual effect as well - my normal weekday traffic has topped 300 per day, about a 20% increase. I had my 75,000th visitor during May, and at the rate I'm going will get 80,000 in about a week and 100,000 in August. I'm pleased and humbled by this, and I'm very grateful to everyone for reading.

A full list of top referrers is underneath the More link. Thanks again for stopping by.
