Kim Jong-Un Site Goes Viral

As you may have seen in the news lately Kim Jong Il the ruthless leader of North Korea died a few days ago. What you may not have know is that there was a very popular website named Kim Jong Il Looking at Things. When I heard the news of KJI's death I realized that the website will have to stop because they will be out of pictures. Then I realized that there will be another leader of North Korea and being the domainer that I am, I quickly registered Kim Jong Un Looking at Things.

I then had my wisdom teeth removed and was stuck in bed all day with nothing better to do so I built the website, and people started to visit it. The theme is from Themeforest and all I had to do were a few simple modifications and upload a few plugins and the site was live in an hour. That's the glory of wordpress.

The first day I had it live it had over 700 visits in half a day, then yesterday it had well over 2,000 visits and over 3,000 views and today looks like it is going to be another record day.

To generate traffic I submitted the site to Digg, Reddit, StumbleUpon, posted it on my Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus account. On Facebook my page currently has over 1,600 likes and growing. On Twitter growth has been slow with over 1,000 followers but no real interaction. I also commented on a number of blogs and new stories about the original site which drove some traffic.

But now I stand at a cross roads. What should I do with the site next? There are not too many pictures of Kim Jong Un left (hopefully they take some more soon) and I do not want the site to die out. I am not even a very funny guy so I think that I might be leading the site to its own death myself. I thought (and still debate) putting the site up for sale on Flippa or eBay, but I have no idea what to value it at. Obviously it has some worth with the traffic and could have much more as it grows.

For now I am going to keep looking for more pictures and a way to get the site to really take off. I am also running a photo caption contest on the site where I am going to give out cash to the top 3 people who send in a photo with a funny caption. I know it is very close I just need a little boost. Take a look at the site let me know what you think and have a great day!

*Update Just got an email from a visitor who said he just heard about the site on 102.9 The Hog in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
