I just had this conversation with an overly concerned buddy:
OVERLY CONCERNED BUDDY: Ryan, last week when you linked to Hodgman's site and he linked back to you, you were getting 400, almost 500 page views a day. Now that you're not riding on Hodgman's coattails, you're getting 20, maybe 30 page views per day, and that includes your own. Are you concerned that the popularity of your blog may be waning?
RYAN: Oh, no, no, no, not at all. I just think that, um, my appeal is becoming more selective.
