How it Feels When Your Post Goes Viral

Featured BlogHer Network Post

Editor's Note: Raise your hand if you'd like a post to go viral. Catharsis has a great post dissecting the emotional stages you'll go through as you realize that thousands of people are reading your post... as well as discussing you. It's a great post about the fallout of getting everything you want. --Mel

This is the first of my posts to reach such a large audience and receive over 1,300 shares on Facebook alone. Needless to say, such sudden popularity (and the equally sudden loss of it) wreaks havoc on the psyche.

The whole experience has familiarized me with the process of coping with a popular blog post. It’s kind of like the grieving process. Well, except without all the death and loss and stuff.

Have you had a blog post go viral? What was your experience?
