Is there much interest in Fred Thompson?
Looking at my blog traffic, I have to wonder how much interest there really is in Fred Thompson at this point. Thanks to this post I wrote back in June, and the subsequent link I got from buzzfeed.com, my blog traffic has tended to almost directly parallel interest in Fred Thompson. When the media starts talking about him, my traffic increases drastically. Looking at my sitemeter, Fred's announcement of his official candidacy only garnered a 3 day spike in my blog traffic with a sharp drop off after that. In the past, the increased traffic has tended to last longer and taper off more slowly. Maybe it doesn't mean anything, but I found it interesting.
