*alanche.

Want a feel for the mood of the country?


Late on Saturday evening, Glenn Reynolds (aka Instapundit) linked to a post of mine. Late on Wednesday evening, John Wesley, Rawles of Survivalblog did likewise. Everybody in the blogosphere knows who Insty is, but who knew so many people read what is probably the premiere SHTF/TEOTWAWKI site on teh intarw3bz?

(...and the hits just keep on coming; he was throwing 400+/hr. at 10PM on a weeknight; Vishnu only knows what it'll look like at noon today...)

Oh, to see a "k" on the Y-axis of *my* Sitemeter weekly hits...

It isn't all it's cracked up to be, Jay G. Sure, he throws a shitload of traffic but do any of them have anything to add to the convo? Hardly ever.

I found your blog on Survivorblog, so it does pull some traffic. I am in Southern Indiana and would like to link you on my blog. I always ask permission first so let me know. Thanks, Dan

Tam said...

Sure! Feel free. :)

(And thanks for stopping by.)

Found you through SB also. Look forward to reading more.

Eh. People seem to love or hate JWR; funny thing is the haters seem evenly divided between Pollyannas who think nothing bad can happen to them and the super-secret-squirrel survivalists who say he's a, and I quote, "yuppie survivalist".

From what I've seen, there's a lot of good prep information that would be useful for loss of services from common disasters like tornados, ice storms, and floods, not just stuff for the Nukes & Bugs crowd.

We got a bit of a hit-parade from JwR recently. We still have a bit of traffic - we hope we are providing good information for people who read survivalblog.com. Great going! Vikki/Doug www.survival-cooking.blogspot.com

I think I still have the online copy of "Ought-Six" somewhere in the house.

I don't mind the occasional Instalanche every now and again, either. It's fun to go to those websites and see how much they think your URL's worth, especially after an Instalanche or two...

It's James, not John, for JWR's first name.

Ten years ago or more, "Triple Ought" was one of the best pieces of fiction I'd read in half a lifetime.

That guy is an essential.
