A very useful article, which points us to time-of-day issues, and some other highly important aspects of audience management, while keeping it in the entertaining framework of a movie analogy: Gremlins.  I noted that the advice was to get your blogs out between 9:30 and 10am CST—so you don’t get it before your audience wakes up.  Hmm…there must be something to the whole “hot off the presses” and “making a good first impression” thing—mostly related, I imagine to the larger issue of having a short burst of fame for whatever your post is.  http://throughanewlens.wordpress.com/2010/08/03/why-your-audience-is-like-the-mogwai/
