This morning I woke up to my article trending on HN.
Before heading to bed last night I was browsing HN and I ran into (for the first time) someone that had submitted an article of mine. It was such a nice thing to stumble upon, as in the past I've always submitted my own articles. It was so cool that someone thought my article was a good fit for the HN audience.
I actually submitted the same article earlier in the day and it got four upvotes, but never made it to the frontpage, so I wasn't expecting anything with this second submission. I added a comment to the new post and hit snooze. But this morning I woke up to an inflow of traffic and saw it on the second page! It's still there. :)
