What can Greater Greater Washington do for you?

Quite a bit, if you are a blogger and the Washington urbanist powerhouse picks up one of your posts.

Last week, a quick hit I did on the tear down of a large building at the D.C. General Hospital that was included in the website’s morning links. And by included, I mean the dead-last item in its breakfast post.

But even that drove hundreds of people to DC Crank Tank, resulting in the highest-ever traffic day for this normally sleepy blog (we are thinking of widening the lanes of our Internet arterial road to make way for more traffic next time. The roads got a little clogged).

Check out those days after the spike: Right back to writing in a vacuum. Phew!
