Green Comet traffic

Green Comet had an interesting traffic spike at the beginning of the month. For a few days, we were getting way more visitors than we were used to. It didn’t last long, though. The traffic has been dropping off and we seem to be headed back toward normal. But the decrease has been much more gradual than the initial rise. It looks like a classic “long tail.”

Here’s hoping that it levels out above where it used to be. Any ideas what can cause this?


This week’s reading is The Qubits of College Acceptance by Lily Turaski. Its themes are the act of observation, qubit, Schrodinger’s cat and superposition. Length about five-and-a-half minutes. Listen to this and other stories on the Audio page.

Green Comet is getting popular. There has been a good uptick in traffic here lately and it’s nice. I see what you’re doing, you lovely people. Welcome. Have a look around. Make yourself at home. Join the discussions. Drop a comment. We love to hear from you.

There has also been an increase in downloads of the Green Comet trilogy. Thank you. That makes this ink-stained wretch feel good. The trilogy is licensed Creative Commons (CC-BY-SA) so please help yourself. Take one of each. Take several and give them to your friends. Tell your friends to come and download them for themselves.

In addition to all that, people have been registering with the site, joining our happy little group. Well, come on down. The more the merrier.

So far, 2023 is turning out very well, thanks to you. And on top of all that, this year’s novel is flowing satisfactorily out of my fountain pens.
