Other people’s hard work pays off

March 26, 2008

So, two of my writing homes have hit big milestones lately, and I’m very proud of the people who caused it, even though I’m not one of them and it affects me only through tertiary means. Still, good news seems to abound everywhere.

First and foremost, this pregnant man story over at PopFi got us picked up by an AOL News blogger, which is always huge in terms of traffic. So congratulations to Trace for writing up an awesome, attention-grabbing article. You have to love it when someone sites you as a source of new and interesting news.

Secondly, since this is quite possibly a huger hit generator but also just happened this morning, Simon’s article about 38 remakes you may not have known about over at Den of Geek got picked up by the hits monster that is Fark. Of course, a few idiots comment on the fact that Anthony Minghella is dead, thus the article is a fail, but he was alive when the article was written, which goes to show you Fark lurkers don’t grasp the concept of dates on articles. Anyway, complaining over.

I knew Fark was big, but I had no idea it was quite as big as it actually is. I don’t want to give out details, but suffice it to say there were more hits on Den of Geek today than there have been in some whole months. Crazy, isn’t it? Here I thought I got good hits off bad jokes about Heath Ledger.
