January 2018 in Review

So January is over and I'd like to talk a little bit about how it went because that's what I want to do today. Creatively the month was okay. It started strong but the last two weeks kind of fell off. I've got some things I'm working on for this month so if everything goes as planned this should be a stronger month.

Page view wise this last month was very good. I saw an overall increase of 72,462 page views and nearly 4,000 unique visitors hitting the page throughout the month. I'm seeing about 46% return visitors which tells me that the way I'm writing is having a better impact on my readers. In other words, people are not only reading my blog, but they're coming back and reading more over time. That's something that I've struggled with over the lifetime of the blog and it's cool that things are starting to work more in the direction that I've been hoping for over the last few years.

Let's break down the way that the blog is working over the last month with a bit more detail.

Blog Earnings: $1.22 in the January. Essentially this represents a doubling of earnings over the previous month. Thank you to everyone who clicked on a link. I can now buy two lotto tickets off Google AdSense earnings.

At this rate I’ll be able to buy three next month and that’s fucking cool!
