Watch out, Ghibli Freaks -- we're about to be socked with a tidal wave. My post on Disney's reworking of the Ponyo song has hit a nerve online. It's spread to NeoGAF, 4Chan, Reddit, yadda yadda. We are on track to have our most biggest day since my June 2008 post, "Pixar, Wall-E and Rubber Soul" generated over 25,000 visits in a single day. For this humble blog, that's a lot of visitors.
I'm wise enough to understand this won't be permanent; these traffic spikes are driven by a single post or issue, and when the moment passes, so will the crowds. But at least a few genuine fans stick around, and become a part of the community. The Ghibli Blog will continue along as always.
