What is causing this weird ear pulse?

For the past day or so, part of my ear has taken on a pulse. The sensation is like any other part of the body where you might have a pulse - not painful, not even irritating, just odd. I feel like this sometimes happens temporarily in other parts of the body (after exercising, temples during a migraine, etc), but this one, while not constant over the past day, seems persistent and narrowly limited to the little piece of cartilage between my ear lobe and canal.
I'm not worried about it by any stretch, just curious as to what is causing it. Maybe an injury so slight that I didn't notice but that my body decides needs an extra little bit of circulation to?
Anyone know why this happens?
