Watching The Logs...

One of the things that is fun to do as a blogger is keep an eye on who is visiting your blog. As a person who is in charge of various web sites, keeping an eye on logs can be a chore. However, for some reason, keeping an eye on blog logs does not seem as tedious.

What is interesting is watching the ebb and flow of traffic. When one gets a mention, or a link somewhere that gets a lot of traffic, like InsideHigherEd, hit rates can suddenly shoot up. Similarly, one can see connections that come through reliably every day. One can even occasionally spot hits from friends, both old and new. It is all rather fun.

This week though, something rather unusual has happened. This blog seems to have gained popularity with folks in the nation's Capital. A couple of day ago, someone from the Pentagon stopped by, for a look around. Today, a hit came in from the U.S. House of Representatives. Who knows who on these networks are reading this blog. However, it is rather a nice thought that the ramblings that show up here might be being read by folks from such important places.
