    Reddit?


    Yeah, so I just felt happy to use Pidgin this morning and posted a little blurb about it on my site... and my hit count exploded. I looked at the referrers and Reddit.com seems to be coming up a lot. I don't know anything about it... can someone shed some light on it?

    Basically:
    - Some reddit user found your site interesting
    - and posted it with a little comment on reddit
    - which then triggered other reddit users (a lot as it seems) to visit your site

    Ah, so it's.... kind of like Digg? Or is that like comparing Star Trek and Star Wars? (i.e. not Kosher)

    I'm about to head off to bed, but from the statistics I've gathered on my host my hit count exploded today. I normally get between 2,000 and 4,000 page views a month. I've received nearly 16,000 just today.

    Now I kind of wish my Google ads still worked. Even funnier, it's not even that interesting of a post! What a strange and unpredictable creature the internet is.
