Month in Review: May 2008

by Kevin on June 7, 2008


May was an incredible month for the blog. I’m having a nice little run here! One of my posts went viral on StumbleUpon and brought in a total of over 28,000 visitors in one month. Check out the stats below.

The Monthly Stats (vs. 1 month ago):

  • Posts: 43 vs. 51 (15.7% decrease)
  • Comments/Pingbacks: 189 vs 175 (8% increase)
  • Visits: 28,343 vs. 6,578 (330.88% increase)
  • Page Views: 36,462 vs.10,014 (264.11% increase)
  • RSS Subscribers: 194 vs. 112 (73.21% increase)

As you can see, that one post really sky rocketed my numbers. I posted less — the exact same amount as much — but had one hit article. If I could grow visits 300% every month we’d be doing just fine! Unfortunately, traffic has died back down to normal levels. Also welcome to all of the new RSS readers, thanks for subscribing.

What’s Coming in June:

  • Continuation of the No Debt Plan series (I have slacked off on this and plan to knock out the next two steps this month.) (I said this last month, but this time I mean it!)
  • I’m going to run a few contests to try and reach 1,500 subscribers by the end of the summer. I need your help!
  • I’m currently running a survey to figure out what you readers really want from me. So take my survey, win $10. Only 14 entries thus far and I need 100!
  • A few more Dumb Money articles
  • Tell the story of how my wife and I took two months to refinish our clothes dresser


I still need your help in getting this blog to be popular. Please tell your friends about it. My goal is to have 1,500 subscribers by the end of the summer (August 31). You can help me reach my goal!
