I discovered something very interesting today about CyberMonday that I hadn't heard previously and I thought I'd share it with you. Do you know how CyberMonday came about? Several years ago, online retailers noticed a second spike in sales following Black Friday on the Monday immediately following. But why Monday, you might wonder... Apparently, buyers were waiting until they got to work following the weekend, to take advantage of the faster broadband internet at work as opposed to the then-more-common dial-up service that was the norm in most homes. Though most people now have broadband at home, this now traditional online shopping day has stuck in our culture.
Which brings me to my next thought. I find it interesting what people choose to do "surfing"-wise from work and from home. Many people check my blog only from work, which is why my stats tend to 'dip' over the weekend.
It's hard to get a good idea of what is really going on with people at work, ever since that guy got fired for spending 500+ hours in a six month period at work on Facebook, but I think we can all make certain deductions.
So to all you CyberMonday shoppers..... GET BACK TO WORK!!!!
(But first post your best deals in my comments section so we can all share in the joy of shopping in our pajamas ;) )
