Wow! Today was my biggest day ever for WhyPad as far as traffic goes. And I’ve gotta tell ya, that’s just fun! 800+ page views, and there are still a couple of hours left to go. Compared to 200-300 on average, excluding weekends when that gets divided in half.
Half the fun was having the little Who’s.Amung.Us widget on the blog to show how many people were viewing in real time. The graph shows that I hit a max of 10 concurrent readers. I just spent about 20 minutes sitting here watching the little globe. Users would come in and their stars would start glowing, then go dark after they left.
This traffic was related to the Contender WordPress theme that I recently released here on WhyPad. It is the same theme that I use on WhyPad, and I am pretty pleased with it, though I do think it needs a bit more color and splash.
Realistically, I don’t expect the traffic to stick around, but it was a lot of fun, even if only for a day. I think Contender may have been in the “new themes” section of one of the theme directories today, explaining the influx. I just hope it’s not too depressing to see my numbers plummet back to their previous levels 😉
Here’s a peek at the Who’s.Amung.Us graph from today…
It’s nothing like hitting it big on Digg, but for me, it was a ton of fun. Cheers!
