Why hello there, Slashdot! Thanks for checking out my journal.

Please let me know what you think!

EDIT: ...or not. I guess nobody actually ever clicks there after all. Oh well.

Still... very cool! At least you know they're reading your posts.

You are expected to have ads all over your blog if you submit to Slashdot... of course they don't click on your nom.

Also, you didn't make it to the front page, where the real clickies stay... better luck next time when you announce availability in the US.

I most certainly did make it to the front page! You don't get 250+ comments in the backwater sections. Maybe you have the gaming section turned off?

That's how I saw it, actually... I was managing widgets on my dashboard, I turned on the slashdot widget to see if it still worked, and there was my name, "justme8800 writes." I knew the widget didn't have any login info, so I did a double take and then scrambled to slap some adsense on the sidebar, you might have noticed it. I needn't have bothered.

The daily traffic has increased by about 5 hits from normal, i.e. it's still practically nothing. In fact, the only noticeable difference is that my pagerank has significantly dropped due to some auto site mirroring the entire blog, and having a better pagerank than mine.

All this from one silly slashdot submission. This is the first time I've tried it for like four years. Bleah.
