At 18.27 GMT +1 (that’s London time to you and me) today my blog started getting visits. Dozens and dozens – over 250 in two hours – all visiting the post I made on Wednesday about the guy who lost his phone and ended up with photos of the person who found it, and their Chihuahua.
Reuters covered the story today and I reckon the evening news on one of the UK networks ran something about it at the end of the 6pm bulletin.
Whoever thought that this picture of a chihuahua would cause what the Reuters article calls a “media sensation” – a few minutes ago the flickr page view count said 9700 visitors had seen the photo and, in the couple of minutes it took me to type this post, it’s shot up to 14,285.
A lot of the visits to my earlier post have been from media company IP addresses – Chicago Tribune, CNN/Time Warner, Toronto Star, etc so my guess is we’ll all be tired of this one by the end of the weekend…
