May traffic report

May was my busiest month of the year so far, with about 57,000 hits. Links from Atrios and Crooked Timber helped boost the numbers a bit, but things were pretty steady overall.

Every once in awhile, I look at the referral log numbers that my webhost generates and I see something that I hadn’t noticed in the Sitemeter referrals. Sometime in May I got over 200 referrals from this discussion thread on Poe News. The thread is called “ACLU Wants Cross Removed From Cemetery”, which seemed odd to me at first when I clicked on it to check it out, since I had no idea what they were talking about. Then it hit me – the original poster had linked to this picture I took in France, which he presumably found via a Google image search. It doesn’t have anything to do with whatever he would have been writing about, but it is a nice photo if I do say so myself. Here’s the post that goes with the photo, in case you’re curious.

Anyway. Thank you as always for visiting. Top referrers and search terms are beneath the fold.
