Now this was a surprise:
Out of the 2,854,671 blogs with 132,697 new posts today on www.wordpress.com. I was number 2, right behind the CNN Political Ticker. Details (while it lasts) at http://botd.wordpress.com/top-posts

Surprise #2, I also made the WordPress main page as their top pick “hawt post”. Which you can see here (while it lasts) at http://wordpress.com/
Well looks like my 15 minutes of fame are up, I just got bumped to the #3 position.
