Reflections on 24 hrs of blogging- It's not what you say. It's when you say it.

September 30th, 2009

So I was chatting with my judge today about my blog, and the number of hits I received. He asked me if I said anything really interesitng. My answer; No.

I blurted out, on the Internet, it’s not what you say. It’s when you say it.

Like all other aspects of life, timing is everything.

I’ll attempt to replay the anatomy of the Instalanche today, for posterity’s sake, in 24 Jack Bauer Blogging Style. Beep. Beep. Beep. Beep. The following took place at….

Sep 29, 2009 @ 20:41 – Published initial Post and Launched Josh Blackman’s Blog

Sep 30, 2009 @ 11:17: Saw on Michael Krauss’s Twitter Feed that SCOTUS Granted Cert

Sep 30, 2009 @ 11:19- Post discussing Supreme Court granted Cert

Sep 30, 2009 @ 11:26- Post, mentioning Question Presented in McDonald v. Chicago, and discussing Privileges or Immunities Clause (this was the post Instapundit linked to)

Sep 30, 2009 @ 11:29- I posted a link to my Post on the Volokh Conspiracy

Sep 30, 2009 @ 11:39- Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit Links to my article, and the Instalanche Ensues!

Sep 30, 2009 @ 20:25- After receiving 2,000 hits in less than 12 hours, I made the WordPress Blogs of the Day List

I don’t think I have anything important to say. But, what I do provide for the blogosphere is my rapid speed and instant analysis. I hope to keep this up for the future.

Just a prediction. Last week in June when SCOTUS issues opinions, I’ll be glued to this blog. Its my favorite week of the year.

Thanks again checking out my blog. Thank you. Come again.
