Dynamic Subspace Hit Count Bump Thanks to Jules Verne’s Birthday

I was surprised yesterday to see a two-fold increase in my daily site traffic, but I quickly found the culprit for this additional traffic: Jules Verne’s birthday. In 2009, I posted a call for papers for the annual Jules Verne Society meeting here. That post received many hits from search engine result pages even though I haven’t really written about Jules Verne on the site besides that post. That post was ranked on some of the major search engines, which drove a little extra traffic my way. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any party favors to give out or more substantial Verne articles for my visitors to read. I will have to think of something significant to write about Verne before his birthday next year.

I am a professor of English at the New York City College of Technology, CUNY whose teaching includes composition and technical communication, and research focuses on 20th/21st-century American culture, science fiction, neuroscience, and digital technology.
