The true reason for weblogs

On Friday I pointed to the Flash animation of Strong Bad from Home Star Runner creating Trogdor the Burninator, an appallingly bad and funny cartoon and musical number.

Today I had a ton of traffic to my site. Apparently I’m now the number one link on Google for Trogdor the Burninator. And people are looking for him. (Note: this is a good opportunity to set up a Trogdor fan page and get Slashdotted.)

Google wouldn’t have found Trogdor without me and other bloggers, since the words “Trogdor the Burninator” don’t appear anywhere within the page, and Google can’t index Flash. Yet.
