Just a small post to wish all my loyal readers a Happy New Year 2010!
2009 has been a good year for this blog. While, I may not have succeeded in making any of the targets that I set for 2009, I’m happy that given the limited time that I was able to give to the development of this blog, it has definitely become more popular.
This has been thanks to the hard work of our authors and guest posters.
In August, I reviewed some of our goals. Here’s how we stand today.
1. Average at least 1000 subscribers
We are currently at about 450, which means I am far away from my goal. If you are reading this post in the browser, then please subscribe to the blog feed.
Additionally, remember to join the Facebook Fan page and share it with all your friends.
2. Make at least one long detailed post a week
I did start out on this with full force, however, I never ended up keeping to this due to my day job.
However, this blog has been regularly updated by my authors.
3. Find at least two other writers for this blog
This is one goal that I have fulfilled. We currently have five authors and guest posters on this website besides myself.
They have brought variety in their content and have ensured that you always have something excellent to read!
4. Increase Ad Revenue from this blog
This has improved to a small extent, but I am looking for suggestions on this.
5. Increase the number of visitors via Delicious, Digg, StumbleUpon and other social bookmarking sites
We get a chunk of this traffic from StumbleUpon for some of our older posts. I haven’t been very successful in actively promoting the posts. But, I guess it is time
6. Increase pageviews to at least 5000 a day
Well, we’re currently way way way below that. Pageviews stand at about 750 a day.
I’m going to set the same targets for 2010. I’m also considering a new template. Any suggestions?
