Blog Statistics Update September – October 2012

This is my one-month update on how EPF is doing based on our September 16 – October 15 data.  We’ve been feeling rather aimless about the blog recently so I think we’re going to set up some monthly goals in terms of things to learn about and implement to grow it.  Believe it or not, we are coming up on our 1 year anniversary of the blog!  I should think about having a giveaway, I suppose…

 

Oh!  And I’m going out of town later in the month for a conference so I’m looking for a guest post to ease my workload leading up to the trip and while I’m away.  So if you have a post ready or an idea you want to propose please email us at evolving PF at gmail dot com.

 

Let’s lead off with something fun – this month’s search terms (from real people, not bots)!

  • wedding car hire london for blog commenting with one comment
  • how much i should spend on shoes at my income level
  • struggling with personal finance on doctors income
  • why do middle class parents produce low class children
  • financial counselor in portland maine featured on news
  • what is the average amount spent for washing uniforms annually

I’m feeling a little stagnated in the blogs that I read – can anyone make a recommendation of a PF blog that she really likes?  What would you want to see as a giveaway on this blog for our 1-year anniversary?

    Ha, I love reading blog search terms! I feel bad for the person from Portland, ME – you’re a long way from there…

  3. Michelle says:

    Looks like you guys are still doing good. I should make a detailed post like this as well.

  4. Seems like things are going well. It is always nice to see growth! Goals do seem to help to keep me motivated.

    I haven’t kept stats as well as I should. While we follow them on a daily basis (mostly looking for a good time on site number and total unique visits), I really need to get back to looking at month over month. OG & I have been talking about this a ton lately: getting back to basics on some areas. We’re in the middle of implementing a ton of changes to the blog and it’s easy to forget some of the easy stuff that you need to keep doing.
