Sky Full of Bacon

Casting Brisket Upon the Waters

One thing that’s cool about doing these podcasts is that you never know where they might get some attention. It doesn’t surprise me that the one about Texas barbecue has gotten more views than any other, because there are plenty of barbecue fanatics out there, and it got a fair amount of linkage.  But I found one BBQ board where it hadn’t been mentioned yet, and posted about it there a couple of weeks ago.  A small bump in viewership, maybe 20 or so, resulted.

Then suddenly yesterday it shot up— and 145 people watched it in one day.  37 more have watched it today— as of about 7:30 AM.  The result is that it’s been pushed over 2000 Vimeo views, a first-time milestone for Sky Full of Bacon. (It’s actually at 2100 right now.) UPDATE: Over 200 today.

The thing is, I have no idea where this traffic came from.  Vimeo will show you referrers (where the person watching it arrived from) but these viewings haven’t registered yet.  And a Google search didn’t turn up any link I didn’t already know about. I’m guessing it’s from somewhere that picked up on it at that most recent BBQ board, but I don’t really know.

So a few hundred new strangers will have watched it this week, and I have no idea who they are.  Cool.

And if you haven’t watched it… watch it!

UPDATE: The answer, apparently, was posted by mistake in the Shokolad thread below by one “G Smithey”: “A University of Texas fans website that talks about Barbecue often, more than it does women, posted the link.”
