>Another month of big activity from StumbleUpon. The pieces by Pendarvis, Kinsella, Maltezos, Hunt, Leary, Chopan, Bundy, and Cooper all had higher referral rates from there than from any other site. Huai’s hits came from her inteview, which in turn got its traffic from China Adopt Talk. AichenbaUm, Chopan, Bundy, and Cooper got most of their hits from the front page of SmokeLong (which makes me wonder if it’s unfair to some authors to list the contents on the front page alphabetically… hmmm). Leary’s hits are largely from people googling for very short stories.
