As the diagram on the left demonstrates, the link last week from Andrew Sullivan saw a massive spike in visits to this site. As you can also see, it soon dramatically levelled off again. But it seems that a few more people than usual are coming back for more, as overall traffic is still slightly higher than usual.
But comments are still pretty rare as a percentage. So I thought it would be a good (and, admittedly, slightly tacky) idea to see who you transitory readers actually are. Seems like a fair few of you pass through every day, have a read, then swan off again.
So here’s an an invitation to all lurkers to come out of the shadows and use the comments feature. Nothing too extravagant required: just a quick hello and maybe even a few words about yourself and where you live if you’re feeling daring. Say whatever takes your fancy.
Go on, be a devil. Introduce yourself.
