Congrats, Mindy. Glad to see reddit was able to send some traffic your way. Hopefully you’ve gained a few more new readers from it.

How does a link on a list of seemingly unrelated topics provide such a massive boost in page hits? Are people just clicking at random?

And how do links get on Reddit in the first place?

(Forgive me I sound confused.)

I think it means nothing — these people don’t care about my usual subject matter at all. They click, they glance, they leave. It’s really useless. Except, as Alexis said, maybe I will pick up a few new regular readers as a result. And I do mean a FEW.

Links get on Reddit the same way they get on Digg — people post them.
