Well. Having just discovered Crystal over at http://www.budgetinginthefunstuff.com I am inspired to start posting updates on the success of this blog.
OK. Let’s be clear – actually what I am inspired to do is actually start working on this blog and building my stats so they are not so hideously embarrassing.
- Alexa Ranking: 4,564,119
- Visits: 140
- Unique Visitors: 134
- Pageviews: 205
- RSS subscribers: 0
- Twitter followers: 4
- Traffic breakdown: 81 (searches) 50 (direct)
Yes, beyond sad.
But, looking on the bright side, it shouldn’t take too much work to get these statistics higher.
Can they go lower? (Don’t answer)
There is not much to say except that despite this blog being a dream of mine for years now, I continue to neglect it. Why? Fear of failure? Fear of success? Probably a bit of both. I will say that I have been following The Financial Blogger since he first started and every month I am green with envy at his statistics. Yes, envious of Crystal as well. But in the end, they deserve their success because each and every day they put the work in and rather than continue w/jealousy, I am going to flip that around and admire them.
It’s not as if I don’t know what I am doing. Just that I don’t do it. Don’t get me wrong – I’ve built a decent consulting business and make a decent living, but at the end of the day, I am paid once for my time and am not planting any seeds to grow my own blogs or build my own online business. Time for change and change is good.
Both Crystal and Mike have inspired me to catch up and make my own personal contribution to the personal finance space.
Wish me luck!
