Sometimes I wonder if these come across as bragging. If that’s the case, please trust me that is not why I do them. Most all my blogging friends do better than I do these days in stats. I do it because it helps me clarify what is going on with my blog. I think blogs themselves can help people make sense of what’s going on in their lives if they give them a try.
June marked my leap into Twitter head-first. I don’t know how much it will help my blog traffic and income long-term, but I am networking like crazy and meeting a lot of new online friends. My daily traffic was up. I think interacting on Twitter in a tasteful way where you are saying cool interesting things and posting cool interesting links in between promotion of your blog, it really can increase your traffic.
I actually got another vice this past month, namely Tumblr. It’s weird because I tried to downsize when I took my three blogs down to this one but now I have that entrepeneurial spirit of growth once again. In July I will be rebuilding Dynamite Lesson Plan and I’ll explain more on that next month when everything is sorted and back in place. But I digress, here are my results for June 2010:
Circulation: 81 Links in, Alexa Rank: 256,725
Analytics: 3,726 visits, Average: 124 visits/day
Net: $165 Source: PayU2Blog
I’ve taken two steps to try and increase income in July. I’ve already mentioned Dynamite Lesson Plan. The other one is: I am trying a few different adsense layouts to see how they fare.
