Aug 26 marked one month from my first post on this site. I can't believe I let it go by unnoticed! Perhaps it had something to do with the fact that I was recovering from my birthday AND preparing for the first day of classes on that day. I only noticed today because I now have a full month of tracking from Site Meter. And what kind of quantitative sociologist would I be if I weren't completely obsessed with the data? So here's the low-down:
The Freese Effect (Myers 2006): I have that on my blog, too! On the 12th I posted tips on how to get your article published in a journal, and on the 15th it was linked by Jeremy Freese and Jim Gibbon (who found the post via Jeremy). Note the jump in traffic on the 16th and the 17th. Even now, 31% of my traffic has been from Jeremy's website, 6% from Jim, and the rest from Google, Blogger, etc.
