Surprising what high powered website can do for blog traffic

I noticed a spike in my normal web traffic the other day as a weekend post was mentioned on a high traffic website. As someone who posts to a tiny personal blog, it still amazes me how many clicks and visitors My Desultory Blog generates.

Over the years I have also noticed that viewers are much more savvy to ads (those below my posts) and are far less likely to click on them. In other words, pageviews are up, but revenues are down a bit from the past (I’m glad not to be blogging for the money).
