Here's what I think happened:

On June 29th, I posted a link to your flickr page onto a site of limited membership, including a lot of bloggers.

On July 1, someone posted a link to your page at metafilter.com. From there, it exploded, and you now have tons of blogs linking to you.

The big question is - how are we supposed to convert this public enthusiasm into cold, hard cash?

ps- Ape-X is my Unreal Tournament 2004 game handle (okay, so I'm a nerd). I used that when I submitted to those sites. I'm waiting to see if Wired magazine accepts. It may end up on the site or in the mag---or both! Muahahahaha...

Instant celebrities - a typical Internet thing.
You can never know when that pic you find crappy will be the most viewed on the net, or why your best-of-breed, top-notch photo has never got more than 10 views and a couple of comments.
Weird hypermedia world... ;)
