The Dooce Experiment

Two Thursdays ago my visitor number shot up to 1,226 (thanks to everyone who stopped by!) My visitor count is usually in the low hundreds, so I was thrilled with the spontaneous spike. I can’t help but wonder if it was because I mentioned The Pioneer Woman on the 10th. Her daily numbers are in the high thousands or low millions, I’m sure.

Today I’m experimenting and seeing if I can have another day of higher traffic by mentioning Dooce. Dooce. Dooce. Dooce. Dooce. Dooce. Dooce. Dooce. Dooce. Dooce. Dooce. Dooce.

No, it’s not the mating call of Anser Geese, Dooce is a popular blog created by Heather Armstrong. She’s another lucky lady who makes her living from blogging. Ah, envy. She’s on my mind because there is a fantastic profile of her in today’s NY Times.
