Month in Review: March 2008

by Kevin on April 1, 2008


March was incredible month for No Debt Plan. My article The Concept That Changed Our Financial Life hit the frontpage of reddit and reached #12!

#12 on reddit!

With reddit came a lot of traffic — over 4,700 visitors in one day. By far the best month I’ve had so far in terms of traffic. Unfortunately, all of that traffic brought some hosting issues which took several days to resolve. I quickly dropped from the front page and into obscurity. Fortunately, even without the reddit traffic I still increased the number of visitors that visited by a healthy margin.

The Monthly Stats (vs. 1 month ago):

  • Posts: 43 vs. 30 (43% increase)
  • Comments/Pingbacks: 103 vs 57 (80% increase)
  • Visits: 7,369 vs. 1,750 (321% increase!)
  • Page Views: 9,636 vs. 4,033 (139% increase)
  • RSS Subscribers: 75 vs. 28 (167% increase)

I would also like to point out that I peaked at 78 subscribers before reddit came to visit. I hope that bodes well for the future.

Thanks for making this blog the success it is thus far. You’re helping me live out something I truly enjoy doing. If you enjoy this blog, the honest to goodness best thing you can do for me is to e-mail five of your friends and tell them about this blog. Here’s a quick e-mail you could send:

Hey! I’ve discovered a new blog that I enjoy reading and thought you might, too. The blog is No Debt Plan and the author focuses on helping people get and stay out of debt. Why don’t you take a look, or try subscribing to the RSS feed?

Or something like that (maybe that was a bit cheesy for you). And hey, if you’re feeling generous, tell more than five friends!

Very nice on the stats. March was a healthy month for me as well. 🙂

I’m curious how much participating in carnivals helped you. Is there one factor aside from landing on reddit that you think helped?
