How to: 0 to 250+ subscribers in first 24 hours

Do you want to know how to go from 0 to 250+ subscribers, hit the front page of and serve over 5000 unique visitors in the first 24 hours of launching your brand new site? Desperate for the secret sauce? Well, here it is… get someone else with a popular fan base to post a link to your site before you mention it anywhere else!

I’m kidding, that helps but the key ingredient is of course valuable content or rather, content others find valuable!

Ooh new site! Yummy. I always thought you should create a CSS site. I always thought you were the master of CSS!

I think I will echo your statement Chris, and add “with good taste”, some of the others have good css skills only, bad or normal taste and not very creative. but then maybe they are just programmers while Sam is also a good creative designer.
