I’ve seen a lot of articles about the Digg Effect and what a site can expect after having a bunch of new visitors arrive to check out an article, as happened with my recent post on Warcraft.

The general prediction is that readership drops to normal levels pretty quickly, and that’s borne out by the stats.

after diggPage views are a little higher post-Digg, but it’s nothing like the giant spike that happened in the middle of the Digg storm. Most of the people who clicked through were following a story about Warcraft; most of them weren’t screenwriters. (Living in Los Angeles, it’s easy to forget that there are some people in this big world who haven’t written a script.)

On a somewhat-related note, I’ve upgraded to the most recent WordPress, and the site seems to be running a little faster for it.
