Yesterday I had a huge surge in traffic here, probably one of the busiest days in the history of Too Much Awesome. According to my SiteMeter, I had 236 visits; Google Analytics tells me that 192 of them were unique visitors. Sure, some of them came from some of you terrific, anonymous Internet readers who keep up with this site with frequency. I got a few Google searches, but nothing too nutty (mostly people still searching for that damn Merry Christmas pin).
But there were a few odd visitors that had either Googled my name or had my blog address emailed to them. This happens occasionally, but usually these types of visitors are from Chicago or Virginia. Last night and this morning, I've had visits from IP addresses in Michigan. Who do I know in Michigan, or who do I know who is forwarding my blog (specifically this post) to people in Ann Arbor?
In other news, today is my last day at work before I fly home to Virginia. I'm super excited, even though I know I'll be ready to fly back to Chicago on Sunday afternoon.
