I'm very pleased that my friend Alice Feiring's site/blog is being linked to by Eric Asimov's great new wine blog The Pour. I built the site for Alice last year and pushed her to post often and not just post her published articles. She still posts long essays on her travels and tastings. She also puts up recommendations. She so far is more game than my other friends who are hard-working often published food and drink writers who claim they don't understand writing for free or in their spare time. Her traffic shot up yesterday to about 550 page views many coming from The Pour according to the referrer logs. Go Alice.
Garden Voices, the reblog, I launched on GardenWeb is also driving traffic to smaller blogs. It's a great feeling to spread some traffic to these blogs not to mention the good will (and links) it is engendering for the site.
I was very pleased to read about Six Apart's new funding. Lately, it has been too easy to lose track of the fact the blogging is still in it's infancy.
