Breaking News: 30,000 Page Views!

Yesterday the blog surpassed 30,000 page views. This is another great milestone for the blog and I would like to thank our contributors and fans for helping us grow. The last time the blog reached such a milestone was on 1/13/12 when I announced the 20,000th page view. Let us see how the blog has progressed since then.

First, the map of our readers between the two events:
World map of readers 1/13/2012
World map of readers 3/8/12
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome our first readers from Mongolia and Kazakhstan, who discovered the blog when we were breaking the 30k barrier.  Now onto our social networking presence:
  • We had 30 Google followers on1/13/12, now we have 37 (Goal: 100 by 6/12).
  • We had 76 Facebook fans on 1/13/12, now we have 89 (Goal: 300 by 6/12).
  • We had 22 Twitter followers on 1/13/12, now we have 44 (Goal: 50 by 6/12).
We saw some amazing growth in our Twitter presence since we passed 20k page views and are close to reaching our goal.  If you do read this blog, please follow us using one of those social media platforms above.

  2. Write, write, write, write. Google is the #1 site for traffic, but you need to write something for people to search for.
