Month in Review: April 2009

by Kevin on May 1, 2009

April was another month of fantastic growth… and I turned 25.

The Monthly Stats (vs. 1 month ago):

  • Posts: 30 vs. 31 (3% decrease)
  • Comments/Pingbacks: 238 vs 196 (21% increase)
  • Visits: 15,526 vs. 14,686 (6% increase)
  • Page Views: 23,159 vs. 22,921 (1% increase)
  • RSS Subscribers: 882 vs. 810 (9% increase)

I’m almost to 900 RSS subscribers… which means I’m almost to 1,000. Once I reach 1,000 I’ll be 10% to my goal of 10,000 subscribers. Woohoo!

Awesome job, man! Your success gives all of us newer bloggers something to really look up to! I was honored to be a part of your SSS this month. I think that’s an absolutely amazing idea.

Keep up the great work!

Thanks for the link – glad I could send a few readers.

800+ RSS in 4 months is fantastic.
