So I woke up this morning bleary eyed to check my sites/stats/etc as I normally do and I noticed quite a lot of users online..
This is normal though, sometimes I get hit by trackback spambots and have 50-60 users online, but this time, they were legitimate, and all looking at the same story – How to use RSS feeds on your WordPress site.
Then I thought hmm…so I checked my sitemeter, and low and behold I had a whole load of referrals from digg!
Hmm so I checked the traffic for today, yup a massive spike!
And there I was, my face on the front page of digg and my story on my little blog 😀
I’ve seen other people get 35,000 hits in a day from the digg effect, so hopefully the traffic a) will keep coming and b) won’t crash the server 🙂 Seems pretty steady so far.
Something like the Slashdot effect but I think not so extreme 🙂

Hosting handled it fine, didn’t get much traffic though as I was digged about 10-11pm I think, I’ve seen spikes of 35,000 unique hits on some diggs, I only got about 3000 🙁
