I was just looking over my blog's traffic stats since I started it six months ago. I noticed that whenever I write something about an iPod or iPhone, my traffic volume doubles or even triples. In fact, this one post entitled "The Next iPod Killer.... Literally" which was about a combination MP3-player/Tazer device (and doesn't even mention Apple, the iPod, or the iPhone directly) accounts for a third of the total lifetime traffic to my (admittedly low profile) blog. I understand why, with the cult following behind these devices. I myself am guilty of repeatedly hitting the refresh button on the Engadget and Gizmodo live blog pages on my browser during the Steve Jobs' Apple WWDC iPhone 3G announcement last week. Moving forward, I guess that I should make sure to pepper my posts with the words iPod and Apple and iPhone.
I will continue to write about the iPhone, iPod and its bretheren here on this blog as I always have. In the future, look for even more--Look for my impressions of movies to incorporate the iPod. What do you think of this sample? "Hulk Incredible on the iPod"? Hey, let's treat this post as an experiment. I'll post the traffic results soon. iPod iPhone iPod iPhone iPod iTunes.
Incidentally, my next highest traffic volume comes from my posts about Journeyman. I guess that Journeyman and the iPod have something in common--people who follow them do so with freakish passion.
