Stages of blog fame
Stage 1 – Elation: Pleasant surprise at being featured on Blogs of Note and increase in number of visitors.
Stage 2 – Panic: Freak out over the number of people visiting, and that your scheduled post during all this may not be the most substantive thing you’ve ever posted.
Stage 3 – Depression: Realization dawns that you will probably never have this many visitors ever again. *
Stage 4 – Acceptance (predicted): Work to earn the time of those people who decided to stick around to see what you got.
* Unless P.Z. Myers directs his readers to vote in the whale shark versus mimic octopus poll.
