It’s not the same as a link from Frank’s enemy, but hosting the Carnival does generate a bit of traffic. Indeed, blogdex currently has that post tied for #1 in all the blogosphere despite only showing 24 links (I have 40 trackbacks alone). Indeed, were it not for those scumbags who bombed the UN building, I’d have the spot all to myself. Damned terrorists.

Update (1114): We have overtaken the terrorists. The Carny is #1! Another victory in the war on terror! And the power of blogging. You’ll notice the New York Times isn’t even in the top three.

Update (1231): OK, so it is the same as an InstaLanche.

    Wait. Let me get this straight. You’re saying that is now getting more hits than OTB because of the terrorist attacks in Iraq and Israel?

    Hmmmm… I didn’t think cnn existed anymore (ever since that Barbarella leaves Buffalo Turner thing).
