Blog Milestone

It took me about 13 months to reach 20k pageviews but about 5 more weeks to be able to count off another 10k.  I've now surpassed 30k pageviews for Passive Income Pursuit and that's just awesome.  It's great to see more and more traffic flowing to the site and is really inspiring that other people want to check in on my thoughts and progress.  Thanks everyone for stopping by and best of luck for the rest of 2013!

  1. I've noticed a recent uptick in visits to my blog, too. In late 2012 I was averaging around 100 pageviews per day, but so far in 2013 it's been around 250-350. My total all-time pageviews is now over 43k.

    1. DGM,

      Yeah, starting towards the end of 2012 traffic started building. January has been a great month for pageviews. Looks like I got some more work to do to catch up.

  2. Congrats on hitting 30k views. I just looked at mine and it's a little over 20k with 4k being from just last month so I've noticed an uptick also. There also seems to be a lot of new bloggers coming online recently.

    1. AAI,

      Yeah I've noticed more blogs popping up. Hopefully they can stick with it and we can grow the DG/early FI community even more. It's always great to be able to bounce ideas off of others.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Pursuit,

    Congratulations and keep up the great work! The more of us on the journey, the more we continue to inspire each other. I'm glad the blog is working out so successfully for you.

    Best wishes!

    1. DM,

      Thanks! It's wonderful that more people joining in. It really helps to get ideas and to keep ourselves on track knowing that we'll have to write about any financial mis-deeds. I'm still a far cry from your readership, but in time I just might get there.

      Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Thanks! I need to try and get some more articles backlogged for times when the creativity is low or I'm just too busy with other things.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Congratulations!. I think everyone whos trying for financial independence via dividends or otherwise is looking for inspiration and knowledge. Good content that meets these goals will keep bringing back more readers.

    1. Integrator,

      I find your statement to be very true. There's times where I've been lacking for investment ideas but then saw something a fellow blogger wrote that got me to look more into another company. I'm so glad that the community continues to grow. It helps to inspire us all. I'm jealous of you r $25k / year dividends, hopefully you hit that $50k mark earlier than 2018.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  6. That's awesome! Congratulations, although I don't find it a surprise. When you put out excellent content readers and traffic will follow. I look forward to continuing to see you progress!

  7. Marvin,

    Thanks. I've got a bit of a series that I want to write but need to just buckle down and get writing. Best of luck pushing your unique visitors over 1,500 in February.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  8. Congratulations. Traffic is hard to get and hard to maintain. I got about 15k page views the first 12 months, after that the traffic started to drop. It is a constant struggle to be on the top, it requires a strong foundation with solid back-links.

    1. SpringBrett,

      Traffic is definitely hard to keep. I need to focus more on building up a network, but for now I'm mainly focused on content because in the end content will keep the readers coming back. 2013 has been great so far for the growth of the blog, but there's still a lot of work to do.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  9. Hello. Blog Milestone? I anticipate we won't benefit from the sort information here, looking forwards to hear more about how you achieved your goal. But thanks anyway.

  10. I really enjoyed your blog on the subject of passive income. You obviously have great experience and would probably be an effective Coach and Mentor to those who want to take ACTION. I intend to bookmark this site and come back to view it often. Thanks again and keep up the great work!
