Thank you reddit for blowing me up and also thank you Journal of Court Reporting for mentioning my blog

I'd like to thank the JCR - Journal of Court Reporting -- for mentioning my blog in this month's issue. The quick nutshell version of the story they covered is that in 2008 I wrote a blog post about how court reporters are able to write so quickly on their steno machines. You can read the original blog post here: How Does a Court Reporter Type so Fast

Then that blog post sat dormant, pretty much, for over eight years.

Then reddit happened. Click here to see the reddit post. For those of you (like me) who know very little about the reddit community... reddit (yes, it's stylized in all lower case) is basically a website where people can share links to content. Then other people (called redditors) can comment and up-vote the best of that content. Anyway, somebody posted a link over to my eight-year-old blog and it went 'viral'. Where normally I get 500-ish unique visitors per day, while this reddit thread was hot, I spiked to 6000+ per day. Now that's a lot of eyeballs on my ancient, 2008 content; right?!

Anyway, thanks to the JCR and NCRA (Nation Court Reporters' Association), my little blog's brush with internet fame was noticed and written about in this month's magazine.

I guess this little fad called the World Wide Web might be here to stay after all. What do you think? Comments, Everybody??
