This is what it looks like when someone posts a link to your blog on reddit (linux subreddit). I went from 48 visits the previous day to 581 visits the day of the reddit post. More than an order of magnitude more visitors. I don't give a s**t about visitor count but as a graph and chart nerd, it's neat to see in the google analytics.
Side note: great discussion on reddit. I will be making a followup article about pgp + vim, since that seems pretty slick. The jury is still out on which is a better solution for me.
