Old New Traffic Bump

I usually don’t worry much about the traffic on my blog, but when I logged into the control panel today this caught my eye:

Page Views showing 800 views on the day Raymond Linked

 Now I already was expecting a bit of a bump since Raymond had given me a heads-up about the link, but I’m always curious exactly what traffic a link will bring.  Between December 31st and New Year’s Day about 900 extra views compared with my normal baseline is a pretty good reach for a pile-of-links post referral.  The results say a great deal more about Raymond’s reputation for putting up interesting links than anything else!
