Blog Traffic

A Blogger’s Big-Fish Fantasy: Short little article about the pyschology of blog traffic:

“‘Getting linked to a popular blog can help, but ultimately it’s the quality and consistency of the blog that will sustain a readership,’ said Paul Schindler … ‘It’s like what children of famous Hollywood stars always say: “My name gets me in the door, but my work keeps me in there afterwards.’”’”

(For the record, that last sentence was a quote in a quote in a quote. We had to think twice about how to punctuate it.)
