Poynter article spikes my pageviews

Mega hits for WellsWritten.com!

An article linking to this site was posted on Tuesday at Poynter.org and the result was astounding (at least to me). In about 48 hours, my site experienced more than 2,700 page views. The welcome page alone saw more than 700 individual hits. That means most of the visitors went beyond the home page to explore the site, look over my resume and check out some of my work.

It’s all due to Judy Stark, formerly of the St. Petersburg Times, who wrote up a great set of tips for newspaper journalists who expect the layoff ax to fall. Thanks Judy!

UPDATE: Today (01/12/09), my site’s hits reached 3,369 for the month. I’ll stop counting now, but it was fun to watch the stats rise.

    It is a very well-constructed website indeed. This has motivated me to have my own work on the web the way you have done.
