My blog is somewhat 8 months old. Yesterday, 19/06/2004 one of the major events have happened in its short life. Robert Scoble linked to me. This was the first time my blog was linked by the monster's blog like I believe Robert's is. Despite the fact that I was prepared for that mentally long time ago and despite the fact that my rank is somewhat strong (due to well ranked articles and tutorials on this blog mostly) I was really shocked. I believe I also understood some things about blogging, too.
The first thing - I realized Robert had a conversation with me (without telling anything) and this is strange. I got that bloggers can handle dialog via posts and comments... If you don't understand what I mean wait until you have experience like this. Second - the power of A-list bloggers and at the same time the ability to handle the heat. And it is hot out there.
I have had more than 1000 unique web views in the last 24 hours, 400 of them in the first 2 hours. Strange feeling. You see referrers number is growing like digits on the clock. I felt like a small village and troops continue passing through it. And they continue and continue. It looks like electric shock. You just sit and watch.
Update: the link was to my previous hosting location with different url, so it doesn't really matter right now...
