Last night my blog went down for a couple of hours. It seems I somehow managed to exceed my bandwidth allotment. According to my fantastic webguy, I got more hits yesterday than I normally do in a month.
Take that Scot McKnight!
But how shall I explain this massive increase in my popularity? To what may I attribute this sudden spike in information superhighway traffic?
Was it a swarm of spammers come to tempt me with their online pharmaceutical wares and promises of nude celebrity photographs? Did one of those pesky New York Times reporters finally cite my site as the source of their editorial insight? Is there some controversial person out there talking about me behind my back? Is Perez Hilton perhaps taking me to task for my views on gay marriage?
No, my personal theory is that it is a group of angry baristas who want to stop me and my message about the potential dangers of including coffee bars in church assemblies! That’s the only explanation. Every Starbucks on the planet is encouraging its employees to log on and clog up my blog.
We haven’t done any kind of roll call in a while, so let’s try it today. Lurkers, come out of hiding! Who are you? Where are you? How did you come to discover my little corner of cyberspace?
