Blog Milestones

This is a seven week old blog, and this week, we just hit some big milestones that I wanted to share.

Google Followers: topped 100, now at 102

Page Impressions: topped 100,000, now at 105,796

Adsense Revenue: topped $100, now at $102.12

Unique Visitors: averaging over 1000 per day for the past week

I'm pretty excited about these milestones, so I thought I'd share them with you. Big thanks to my readers, both my loyal followers and my constant opposition, because I couldn't have done it without you.

Emily, did you say you were planning on saving the money you make from adsense?

Emily said...

Treva, yes, it's going directly into savings.

That's great! And I think you should use this first batch of adsense moola for paper plates and quarters for a laundry run after baby arrives! ;)

Congratulations, those are some great milestones! I've been wondering about menu planning. Do you plan things out weekly, monthly, just cook from your cupboard, or what? This might be one for your FAQs.

I was reading The Simple Dollar about a month ago, read one of your comments, thought your blog title was interesting and here I am! So glad I was snoopy and visted!

Needless to say I think your doing a great job as many others obviously think so too! :)

Dogfood Provider, We have a two week menu rotation of our favorite meals. If you look on the side bar, one of the topics is "Menu Plan." That shows our two week menu.

I know some people were giving you a hard time about your two week meal rotation, so I thought I'd share with you that my husband just told me last night that he could live off a 3 day meal rotation (my peanut tempeh, chickpea stew, and pizza!).

LOL! I wouldn't actually do a 3 meal rotation...but it's nice to know he enjoys those meals so much!

PS. Congrats! I think your blog rocks :)

Awesome! I don't know much about blog statistics, but it looks great to me! I found your site through a comment you left at Passionate Homemaking. =)

I've been reading for a while now and been debating commenting. I'd like to write the email you have listed and possibly have a private conversation with you; nothing offensive, I just have questions that I dn't know would add anything to the content of your blog. I'm a first time mom due soon myself and have lots of questions about being a good mom and what not..
I do have question though for my own blog which on another server. How do you find out who follows you on Google?
Goodluck and I hope to talk with you soon.

Jackie, email me, definitely. I'm not sure if Google followers is just for blogspot blogs, as blogspot is Google's blog program, but there are other ways to see who's following you.

That's great! I wanted to know how you figured out your page impressions. I've tried to add Google Analytic to my blogspot blog but haven't had any luck.
