site for a while, so precise statistics can wait until then (soon!).
Alexa is a handy guide to comparative popularity of sites - I've
heard it can be very innacurate at times, but it's better than
nothing. Here's a graph comparing the two sites:
I included McSweeney's, which was also listed, and I think that if
they'd lowered themselves to link to the awards then they'd have
given Gaiman a run for his money as they're also popular (I'm
surprised Alexa suggests Gaiman is as popular as McSweeney's).
>(And I still don't know what his blog is about.)I think it's just a website where he posts stuff about his writing
and answers questions from fans. Which is fair enough.
