The usual traffic to this site is almost periodic over the week. The minimum is Saturdays, with around 600, a peak on Mondays around 1000, a lower second peak on Wednesdays, and then the next weekend drop. If we have a longer, well elaborated post with subsequent discussion this shows up as deviation from the standard curve with a one day delay.
Unfortunately, I can't show you the annual traffic, because our first SiteMeter died in April for reasons I still don't understand. The overall trend however seems to be subject to many search engine details that lead people here who are actually looking for something different. In this respect it seems to matter that this blog runs at blogspot, and shows up very prominently for all kinds of keywords, e.g. "first day of fall". We had a fun period last year when we were the first hit on Google image for "Map of America". Either way, this is just a background noise that pushes the statistics. Occasionally it seems, one or the other accidental visitor browses the archives, but most I am afraid are just annoyed by Google's inefficiency.
On the other hand, I found that the blogger 'search' field is completely useless and I search this blog more efficiently by entering a keyword into Google together with the tag 'Backreaction'.
To come back to the curve above. If you look closely, you'll see a first deviation from the usual periodic on Tuesday, Nov 6th, which I think is a delayed response to my post on the Casimir Effect. The post about Garrett's paper went out Tuesday evening, so caused the higher Wednesday peak on Nov. 7th. The unusual peak on Nov. 9th is the link from Peter Woit's blog, which increased the average traffic through the following days. On Nov. 14th the Telegraph article went out. The NewScientist article was subscription only until Nov. 16th. The following peak was caused by a multitude of links, among others from digg/reddit, various other well frequented blogs, traffic through Google searches for "Garrett Lisi", and a lot of links from around the science blogosphere (most show up on the very bottom of the comment section, in case you are interested.)
I hope one or the other random visitor got hooked :-)
