I love days like today. You get out of bed after a nice night’s sleep and the sun is shining, the birds are singing and you have a gem of a scoop waiting for you in your inbox from a reader of your blog giving you the story of the month (maybe year) exclusively.
I had to do a little background work but the story was right, a new DSLR camera from Canon – the Canon Rebel XT, and no one else had posted about it yet (most other sites are bound by agreements with the manufacturers and can’t post til tonight), so I posted it a couple of hours ago and am now enjoying watching the traffic flood in.
It’s quite exhilarating to see your traffic graph come alive – it just jumped from 350 visitors per hour to over 2000. This is going to be a fun day.
