Goals Update and Weekly Round-up


As many of you know, I am making an aggressive effort to improve this website and increase readership by the end of February, 2011. Here are the goals I set for myself.

Goals for the end of February, 2011

  • Alexa Rank: Under 200,000
  • Subscribers: 50
  • Twitter Followers: 200

Current Numbers

  • Current Alexa Rank: 358,140
  • Subscribers: 20
  • Twitter Followers: 100

I am getting very excited about my progress toward my February goals. My Alexa rank has dropped another 100,000 (which is great!) since last week, and I have broken into the 3-digits with Twitter followers.

Since my subscriber numbers were down last week, I decided to run a promotion for my readers to win a $25 Amazon Gift Card (this is active through January 31 by the way, so make sure to enter!). With this promotion, I have increased my subsciber numbers from 15 to 20. Not as great as I would have liked, but at least it’s progress!
