April traffic report

April was my best month ever, with about 41,000 hits. A couple of referrals from Kevin Drum's new Political Animal site was a big part of the boost. Things have tapered off a bit so far in May, but my weekly running average continues to remain at or above 1200, which is as high as it's ever been on a regular basis. As always, thanks to everyone for reading and for returning. Top referrers are beneath the More link.

Though this will be a very busy summer, with the state Democratic convention, who knows how many special sessions, Texas Tuesdays, and of course that big election in November, I expect things to slow down for awhile here soon, as my posting schedule will be greatly curtailed after the baby arrives. I don't know how long it'll take me to figure things out, so please bear with me. We're still 2-3 weeks away from the due date, but with babies you never know for sure.
