Again, with the dubious merit awards…

The WordPress stats tell me that today, STARTLING MONIKER is among the top 50 fastest growing blogs of the day– no small feat for someone writing about experimental music, rather than the usual pop culture oriented, YouTube-linking gimmick nonsense out there.


In fact, STARTLING MONIKER has been growing fast enough that in just over three months, it’s gotten almost as many views as the “It’s Too Damn Early” website has in the past two years.  Granted, most of the information at the “ITDE” site is static, one-time-only sort of info, but I’m still excited to find this many readers– nearly 3,100 since November 15th, 2006. I know this isn’t the sort of traffic that the breathless reporting of Britney’s every haircut receives, (a post submitted to, “Britney Spears Shaves Her Head,” got almost 3700 diggs!) but its still encouraging to see a large readership for what is admittedly a niche topic.



I’m a ways off the top 100,000 at Technorati (currently? 280,249!) but I’m making it my goal to crack that list. If you have a blog, consider adding me to your blogroll, eh? Until then, I want to thank you all for continuing to make STARTLING MONIKER part of your day. Thank you! –DaveX
