I’ve got myself quoted in an article

A St. Louis Post-Dispatch article called For families of missing children, the pain is not knowing. I wonder how the reporter found out about my visitor stats. It says it was published on the 13th and I posted a blog entry about them AFTER that. The visitor statistics are publicly viewable, but I don’t link to them or anything.

Anyway, this is an excellent article and I’m not just saying that because I’m in it. Several parents were interviewed and several cases of missing children got coverage.

    Hi Meaghan,

    I think the reporter just pulled up the stats sheet, saw the spike in hits after the women were found, and incorporated that information into the article. Basically the increase in hits helped him to identify the general publics interest in the missing when a high profile case makes the news. The fact that you have profiled 9,000. plus cases helped him identify the scope of the problem
