“What’s the Big Deal?” – Going Viral

Jacob says I’ve gone “viral.” I asked him if I should go to the doctor. He explained to me that matzobox is getting a lot of visitors from different Internet websites and from people telling their friends. I asked him how could he tell? Apparently we have something called Google Analytics. I told him that my great niece Annie had been announcing the blog in something called “forums,” listing it on Jewish websites and “commenting” on other people’s blogs. She really is a peach that Annie…helping out so much to get more people reading my words. What’s the big deal?


Comments:

I found your website in the NY Times “Bitten” blog, which had a post about shmura matzoh in which many weighed in with their matzoh stories.  Someone had included a link to this site, and I sent to my sister who is vegetarian because you have vegetarian recipes.  I’m likely only one of many with similar stories—this is what it means to “go viral” on the web.  It’s spreading!  Thanks for the great website, and all the work you’ve put into it.  Have a ziesses pesach!
