Welcome to all the new readers. I’m impressed by all the interest in that post. It actually got more traffic in less than 24 hours than this whole blog in the past 30 days combined, and I thought I was doing pretty good. The post boosted my ranking on WordPress.com to featured blog on the frontpage, to #1 in the Top Posts list and
#6 #5 in the Top Blogs list.
My interests are eclectic, but I’ll definitely keep writing posts in the style of the Space Telescopes and Asteroids ones. As a reader, I really like it when someone takes the time bring together – in a newbie-friendly way – a lot of scattered information about an interesting topic. I’ve become interested in many things after reading good introductory articles, so that’s what I try to create. At the same time, I learn a lot researching and writing, so it’s clearly win-win.
