Basically, everyone that answered either came from another blog that linked to us, followed a specific blogger, or can’t remember. Not surprisingly, blog links is what brought most of us here.
Not surprisingly, those that followed individual bloggers here followed a pretty diverse group; most of the long time contributors have brought at least one person. Erik, Jason and Freddie each have two or three people that followed them over specifically.
In terms of the blogs that sent traffic our way, it’s probably not surprising that the Dish is the biggest one named. The “Other” category consists of those blogs mentioned only once, and includes sites such as Reader shares, One Best Way, and Plain Blog About Politics.
