The last few days have been pretty busy on BlogStorm, breaking all records for traffic.

Thanks to two stories on the Digg front page, a load of traffic from StumbleUpon and a front page article on Sphinn the site has had 75,000 unique visitors in the last 3 days.
The hosting handled the traffic well and didn’t even slow down under the load from Digg. In fact for 2 days it ran at 100% uptime and the third day it was at 99.34%. I use Burton Hosting and pay $21 per month.

We still have one advertising spot available at a cost of £200 per month.
