I love shameless self-promotion.
A couple of prominent blogs dedicated to the New York Mets linked to my story about Bobby Valentine. I'm thrilled!
Take a look at a screen shot of the chart showing how many people viewed my blog as a result of the links:
MetsBlog.com is run by professional blogger Matt Cerrone, who also presents video content for SNY, the television network that broadcasts the Mets games. Cerrone posted a quote about the possible return of Bobby V. as the Mets' manager. The other website that linked to my wrap up of Bobby V.'s visit to the Japan Society was Amazin' Avenue, an unofficial blog about the Mets. Blogger Joe Budd linked to my blog entry and simply said, "Let the Bobby Valentine speculation begin once again."
I'm excited that these links prompted hundreds of unique viewers to shrinecastle, but I realize it's because people are more interested in Bobby V., as evidenced by the graph below:

On the travel blog Upgrade: Travel Better, a person by the handle of RLee commented by posting a link to my most recent blog post about Nyaran, my new favorite commercial cat! Upgrade's Mark Ashley asked for help in translating Nyaran's commercial for Jalan, a Japanese travel company. RLee was kind enough to say that my blog post offers a good explanation for the cat's name. Thanks to RLee and Mark Ashley for finding this blog post!
