Month in Review: July 2008

by Kevin on August 7, 2008


The summer slowdown is officially in effect! July was disappointingly slow around No Debt Plan. Unique visitors were down, and it seems to be the same way thus far in August. I’m hoping this is due to people being out enjoying the summer. I really hope they come back!

RSS / E-mail Subscription Contest Underway:

Don’t forget I am running a subscription contest where you could win one of two $25 Amazon gift cards.

The Monthly Stats (vs. 1 months ago):

  • Posts: 37 vs. 38 (2.6% decrease)
  • Comments/Pingbacks: 171 vs 134 (27% increase)
  • Visits: 5,115 vs. 7,908 (35% decrease)
  • Page Views: 8,710 vs. 12,652 (31% decrease)
  • RSS Subscribers: 273 vs. 250 (9% increase)

While traffic numbers were down, I do see the silver lining. I kept up more than 1 post per day average, comments increased nicely, and RSS subscribers jumped up (and have continued to jump).
