The story of a blog, from birth to...?

Thursday, September 28, 2006


This carnival stuff works. Or maybe my expectations were just really low. I've had 103 unique visitors today at The Antidote, most of them linking from yesterday's carnival site (and 15 or so from a thread on a health forum site called Webmagic, which hosts discussions on everything from lymphoma to collecting old Coke machines.

Now I'm about to do something for which I hammer on the pharmaceutical industry all the time, but what the heck: Even if the absolute number of hits seems unimpressive, 103 (with only half of the day elapsed) represents a relative increase of 900% over the average of 9.5 hits per day for the previous 6 days.

Whew! Heady times, let me tell ya.

Emily, you made me laugh.

I'm learning a lot from reading you; when I get some time, I'm going to use some of these insights to see if I can't do better with my blogs.

Enjoy your high percentage -- something tells me that you are taking a bit different route with this than Big Pharma is!
