Hello To All The New Readers

Normally I would have two to three new posts each day on the blog but it’s under a pretty heavy load at the moment. Yesterday my post about The World’s Most High-Tech Urinal got Dugg. Today, all hell broke loose. I’m about to set a new one-day traffic record thanks to the post getting on Slashdot, Fark, Engadget, Gizmodo, eBaum’s World, USA Today, and a ton of other blogs.

I like to welcome all the new readers who came to check out the story. I hope that you have a chance to check out the rest of the blog and like it enough to bookmark it or subscribe to the Full Feed RSS. I like to write about technology, take pictures of my dinner, and show people how to make money on the Internet.

I will have a full updated on the Super Sunday, with traffic and income figures, on Monday morning. Once again, thank you for visiting and I hope you stick around!

    Hi John,

    Funny how I’m referring to you by your first name, as if I knew you personally 🙂

    Anyway, remember the comment that I left on your “World’s Biggest RSS Button” entry? About having 1121 (I think) readers? Right now the Feedburner.com widget says you’re at over 4,000. Nice work!

    Yeah, I think yesterday he had about 100 readers (or was it 1000?) anyway gaining a few thousand subscribers is no easy task. *pats john’s back despite me being a stranger, and possibly a slightly weird one *

  6. John Chow says:

    Bryce – It was 942 readers. I expect the subs to drop on the next update because that’s how it works.

    Thanks everyone for the support!

    Nice one. I have been reading many blogs this morning and the urinal story has hit some pretty large sites out there!

  8. John Chow says:

    Matthew – So why haven’t you posted it? 🙂

  9. Matthew says:

    Well 🙂 It is currently open in a firefox tab (for the last couple of hours) and I will be starting soon 🙂

  10. Matthew says:

    Done. Also threw in a link to the Male Restroom Etiquette. I wonder how that will be taken in to consideration when being in public 😀

  11. Gdog says:
