Yesterday, I was notified via e-mail that my blog was appearing on the homepage of WordPress.com:
Congrats! Your post ( https://allthoughtout.wordpress.com/2009/11/10/look-ma-no-hands/ ) has just been promoted to the homepage of WordPress.com. Keep up the good work!
Thanks a million,
The WordPress.com Team
I was pretty excited even though my blog’s selection was likely the result of computer-generated randomization. Because my blog was listed right next to Anderson Cooper’s. I can think I’m pretty cool, right?
Unfortunately, I think my reader statistics are now slightly skewed, thanks to the free publicity. It turns out 1,400 hits looks much different than 40 hits.
