Report On 30 Days Of Consistent Blogging

I haven’t been keeping up with answering comments or responding to email much in the last few days as Jean and I took a much needed break and stayed at the Garden Cottage in Mt Dora, FL for a couple of days. However, I used the time stamp feature of WordPress and wrote 3 posts ahead to cover for the time we were gone.

Affiliate Confession has now been blogged for more than 30 consecutive days and I’ve seen some pretty good results for the effort. Being that the 30 days ended right in the middle of the Christmas holidays there is probably a significant drop in traffic from people not being on their computers. (I shouldn’t be either) But there is now a very good base of posts, rss readers and links coming in to start off the New Year on a good pace.

30 Day Blogging Results

During the last 30 days ending Dec 21st, Affiliate Confession has gone from 5 visitors a day to a high of 620 in a day and back down to 106 visitors on the last day of the 30 day effort on Friday, Dec 21st. The average per day over the entire 30 day period was 130 visitors. The most traffic came from StumbleUpon and the second most came from Entrecard. A total of 3,906 visitors came to Affiliate Confession during that time and visited 7,581 pages. The blog also gained a total of 45 rss readers, which I am vary thankful for those who have signed up.

I would consider this 30 writing challenge to be a success and although Affiliate Confession isn’t getting much traffic from Google, there is now a solid base of content for Google to index and rank and I’m expecting to see a big change in SE traffic in the month of January.

I want to personally thank each and every reader of this blog for taking the time out to read what I have to say. That’s a very humbling thing to think that readers are even looking to this blog at all for advice. I will try my best not do disappoint you.

Thanks again for reading and I hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas!

  1. Those are awesome results! I’m glad I’ve joined in on the challenge 😛

    So far I’ve had climbing traffic too, although I attribute it pretty much all to entrecard droppers 😛 I actually like that traffic though, as I’m sure at least some of them are reading my blog :)

    I didn’t know stumbleupon was such a good traffic source. Do you stumble your own posts, or do you just wait/hope your readers do it? What about other Web 2.0 Social Bookmarking sites, like Digg?

    Let me know :) Merry Christmas!

  2. Nice! :) Very impressive stats!

    I’ve got some stumble upon traffic but it never resulted in much…

  3. Merry Christmas! Your stats shows that, this blog is doing well. Keep it up!
    Wishing you success..
