At noon yesterday (my time) I posted a blog entry about how it was that SOL was soon going to eliminate links to external blog and forum sites. Therefore, I needed to re-activate my blog here, and the posting was my way of doing that. At the same time, of course, I threw in a link for my external site -- after all, why not promote yourself when you have the opportunity?
Rather interestingly, that single posting resulted in a flood of requests for an account on my site -- so many, in fact, that it boosted the membership on the site by about twenty per cent. What will be interesting is to see how many of those people stick around for any period of time, and indeed, whether all of them even log into the site after they get an account.
I guess I'll have to wait and see.
