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 Alexa Rank: 206,339 (was 262,560 last week)
- Subscribers: 34 (was 29 last week)
- Twitter Followers: 134 (was 113 last week)
My Alexa Rank numbers are still dropping like a rock (which is a good thing)! I’m pretty sure I can sleep-walk past the 200,000 rank by the beginning of next week.
I still need 16 subscribers to reach my goal of 50; and I still need 66 Twitter followers to hit 200.
I did not expect to hit any of these goals until February, but it looks like I’ll hit one of them for sure by next week! In light of this, I have decided to make a push to hit these goals by the end of this month! In the next 15 days, my goal is to earn 16 more subscribers and 66 more Twitter followers!

My name is Derek, and I have my Bachelors Degree in Finance from Grand Valley State University. After graduation, I was not able to find a job that fully utilized my degree, but I still had a passion for Finance! So, I decided to focus my passion in the stock market. I studied Cash Flows, Balance Sheets, and Income Statements, put some money into the market and saw a good return on my investment. As satisfying as this was, I still felt that something was missing. I have a passion for Finance, but I also have a passion for people. If you have a willingness to learn, I will continue to teach.
