All of you guys that have been around for a while know Thursday is stats day. That was cool when everything was new but now it's time to grow.
Last week this blog broke through the barrier of profitability. In light of this, I've decided to start reporting monthly instead of weekly. Since the last report was for the eighth week, I'll report again on October 8th.
Have You Reddit?
Reddit is one of the big social book marking sites where the readers evaluate submitted articles and vote them up, down or not at all.
Where StumbleUpon readers tend to like lists and cool pictures, Reddit members are more into pillar article type stuff. While Reddit has the potential to deliver massive amounts of readers, my experience has been about 10-30 in the first 1-2 hours and then almost nothing.
Here's my offer.
Last week I stumbled all over you. This week I'll Reddit you. Reddit-ing an article requires a lot more effort so I'm not going to take as many entries and I'm going to ask more of you in return.
This time I need you to direct me (with a link preferably) to the one article you have written that you feel deserves some exposure. Please don't ask me to sift through your archives to find something to submit.
I am also going to ask that you commit to coming back here tomorrow and telling everyone what happened. Did you get a spike in traffic? How long did it last? How many hits did you get? etc. Be as brief or elaborate as you wish. I would like to have some actual figures though. (Yes I'm working on something.)
I'm only going to commit to submitting the first 12 decent articles but I may very well go longer. Don't rule yourself out just because you see 15 comments because several of them will be mine. Let's have fun with this and don't forget to come back to report about your experience.
