When did you have a sense that the blog was gaining mainstream attention, and what chord do you think it struck that made it this incredible success?

It was easier for people to find one another and to see what was going on and to take a survey of the “blogosphere” at the time. It’s the Big Bang Theory; it started from this little point, and it’s been expanding ever since. Now, there are millions and millions of blogs in uncharted waters. Back in the day, it was a comparatively small pond. So, in that way, I was very lucky.
