The Wil Wheaton Effect

On Monday March 5, one of my search feeds caught a reference that Wil Wheaton had made on his blog, discussing his episode "Chain of Command". This was about 9 pm or so. He linked back to me for the torrent files, so I quickly put up a welcome page for the people I knew were going to check this out for the first time.

Although not one of the approximately 1300 or so new visitors left a comment, they tripped my blog stats. Here's how Google Analytics measured the Wil Wheaton effect here until things settled back to normal:

Tuesday's hit count was almost three times as high as my previous highest, but I'm not sure if anyone stayed. Well it was fun being a link in a celebrity's blog for a few days, anyway.
