This guy probably not so concerned with blog traffic.

I have mentioned before that I am a sucker for statistics. Give me a good graph any day of the week. WordPress provides a statistics section on the admin page that I cannot help but check once or twice a day.

Something I have noticed is that there is occasionally a large spike in traffic followed by a linear decay back to normal rates. Starting last Sunday the traffic has followed this pattern (normalized to average traffic):

  • Sunday: 5.6
  • Monday: 3.6
  • Tuesday: 2.5
  • Wednesday: 1.3

Almost all of this traffic is directed towards my post on the Think Tank Photo Streetwalker review I did in January.

I wonder if the number of traffic spikes would double if I did a review on a new Think Tank product? Of course I would have to wait for a new release that I could use since I could not really utilize their latest product.

It is good that there is the occasional Think Tank related traffic spike, hopefully one of those people will utilize the handy link for my Think Tank Affiliate program. So far that link is averaging me a whole seventeen cents a day. Imagine, a new packet of ramen every single day.

It is like unto a dream.

I mentioned a while ago that I joined the Think Tank Photo affiliate program, mostly to see what would come of it. So a few weeks ago I found I could add a link to the free bag offer and put it on the sidebar to the right.

The funny thing is I never actually knew what the free bag was until today. So when you buy over $50 of product through the affiliate program (which is pretty much most of the bags) you can get one of the following for free:

If I did not have the Streetwalker backpack I would probably use one of these to hold my accessories. Though it is really only useful if you are using the belt system, otherwise any bag would work.

I use this bag to hold my lenses if I need to throw them loose into another bag, it fits all of my introductory lenses and holds them securely. It also has a rain cover for a bit of extra protection in wet climes.

I have handled these when working with Think Tank inventory but I have not used them. I would say they would work well for several small things, feels less protective than the Lens Changer 50.

Feels just like a Lens Changer in durability and build but for a large flash unit.

If I was to buy a Think Tank bag new I would go with the Lens Changer 50, just for the usability. I know that for some of the lens I bought they did not come with a case of any sort, if they did it was weak and flimsy. Having an extra bit of protection on my lens lets me chuck them into a backpack for the day or the week and not worry too much about them (I try not to sit on them, I don’t think any soft bag would help there).
