If you're like me, you:
a. Have a sub-par blog
b. Have about 5 readers
c. Obsess for some reason about traffic to your sub-par blog
Maybe I am really a narcissist like Dianna says. Or maybe I just love data... especially about me. In any case, you probably know about Google Analytics and Google Trends, but you might not be aware of how to find out how many people are Tweeting or talking about your blog in their equally shitty blogs.
Well, now you can, with Backtype.
