Listed by Blogger's Blogs of Note



The Midnight Monkey Monitor has been 'discovered' by the Blogger Team and listed as their "blog of note" as of 20 November 2007!

Blogs of note started as the "blog of the week" feature on blogger's main page. These are "Interesting and noteworthy Blogger-powered blogs, compiled by the Blogger Team" which you can find on the sidebar in your blogger dashboard or on the main login page of blogger.com. Naturally, you can also find it on the blogs of note blog!



I had no idea I was being listed until this morning when I was checking my email and suddenly saw a barrage of very supportive comments on my new blog posts and on my daily green action project posts. As most of my readers are usually local, I was wondering where this sudden influx of international visitors came from.

I checked mybloglog.com and saw 2000+ visits when I normally get 80! [current check: 3600+ page views and 3000 readers] Checking sitemeter saw that most of these came from http://blogsofnote.blogspot.com/

That's when I found out! Shocking! I really wonder how Blogger found me.



I really want to thank everybody who have visited, read, and left me a comment! Thank you so much for your support. This has really given me a boost of energy, inspiration and motivation to continue with my projects and writing. And of course, thank you Blogger Team! :)

Hopefully this outreach to readers will soon spread to Singaporeans who are the core of my target readers since much of this blog revolves around environmental awareness and issues in Singapore. Now that I got the attention of the world, hopefully I'll get the attention of singaporeans soon!

Thank you and Welcome, O' readers from all over the world. Do check back often! Subscribe my RSS feed or join mybloglog community!

Update:
Thanks to Kevin for submitting the news to tomorrow.sg!

Thanks Kevin! There are also many other excellent nature blogs in Singapore and hopefully this will encourage more nature bloggers here. I think we must definitely have more blogging for nature workshops in 2008! hehe :)

Ha! Same thing happened to me when they posted my blog this week. I was shocked at all the emails and comments I stumbled upon in my inbox and then checked my stats...wow...I still wonder how they find people though.

Congratulations!

Just another reader who found this blog through the "blogs of note" tab, but I do think the formatting here is pretty awesome.
