On Friday, Perusals was chosen as one of the featured (aka “Freshly Pressed”) blogs for the WordPress.com home page. Within a few hours visits to this modest little blog had quadrupled and the comments were coming fast and furious. By the end of the day on Friday, there were over 1,400 hits.
Hello, 15 minutes of fame. I’m not sure what flagged my blog for the Fresh Press designation, but it’s been a ton of fun reading the comments and interacting with all the new readers. Whether the new readers decided to stick around (and I hope they do!) it’s made this Friday a great day!
Thank you, WordPress and WordPress bloggers for the honor!
