Fastest Growing???

Wow, I just saw that I’m on the “Fastest Growing Blogs” list at #6. Generally I get between 30-40 hits daily, mostly friends and family as well as a few disappointed folks who think that they’re stumbling upon the personal blog of the “other” David O’Hara :), but yesterday I got 70+. And I know what did it – BlogMad.

If you haven’t noticed the little badge to the right, I’ve signed up to participate in the beta. It went “live” yesterday and hence the spike in traffic. I’ve got to say that I’ve enjoyed surfing around and seeing the sites of the other participants and I’ve even grabbed a few for future reading. If you’re interested in getting in on the BlogMad craze, drop me a note and I’ll get you an invite.

UPDATE: Well, I made it to #5 today (March 7th).

UPDATE: Woohoo!! I hit #1. Many thank to my fellow BlogMad folks. I know it was you. 🙂
#1 With Love

    I’m doing the beta test as well & have seen a nice spike in tin traffic. Hope it keeps up.

  3. indeed, but I guess it won’t last long as number of users increase so it’ll be virtually impossible to show up 🙂

    I think that the big problem is that you’d have to have wild fluctuations from day to day in order to make your delta (change) high enough to get listed. Very strange indeed.

  5. Can I get an invite?

    Many thanks for your compliments. Actually, BlogMad has opened it’s doors (although it is still in beta) Just use the BlogMad badge to the right and you can get signed up.

    As for using, I HIGHLY recommend it. I’ve tried several services and applications, even hosted my own for a while, and just couldn’t beat (especially for the price ;))
