An April Fool

91/365 Happy April Fools Day!

Who says the folks at WordPress aren’t fun?

When I logged in today, I noticed that I had almost 300 visitors. Which post could have caused so many people to stop by my blog, I wondered.

The next time I logged back in, my stats were normal.

I didn’t get it until my mouse hovered over today’s count and I saw it: It’s April Fool’s.

Of course!

So if you’ve somehow forgotten what date it is and you’ve noticed a spike in your stats, it’s WP’s way of  playing an April Fool’s joke on you.

Smile, it’s April 1st.
