After being included in Jason Kottke‘s list of “Single Serving Sites” on Tuesday http://instantrimshot.com saw a burst of traffic. The next day, February 20th, was a historic day for the little site, the first day it peaked 1000 unique visitors (1248 according to Google Analytics.) Sure, this isn’t really that much in the grand scheme of things but it is fun to see a fun little project get some lovin.
Interestingly, Mr. Kottke’s post on Single Serving Sites, which he defines as “web sites comprised of a single page with a dedicated domain name and do only one thing” has become somewhat of it’s own topic on the internet. There is a Wikipedia entry in place calling the trend an “internet phenomenon,” as well as a couple of Single Serving Sites whose only purpose is referencing other Single Serving Sites. See http://www.alistofsites.com/ and http://single-serve.com. In any case, thanks everyone who wrote about or linked to the site even though you’ll probably never get my thanks.
