#Woohoo! All things considered I’m super pleased with the results of February. There are things to work on moving forward (like creating more and better content to keep the user engaged across multiple posts) but ya gotta start somewhere, #AmIRight?
So what do you think for month two of 2017? How’d we do? What can I do better?

    1. Thanks! I’ve been working hard at it coming into this as a complete newbie.

      Still a ways to go! #WishMeLuck

  1. Nice work. Stumble Upon has been good to me as well – I added all my pages one Tuesday afternoon and got 750 page views that day!

    5k views in your 2nd month is awesome. I got 3k in my second month.. trying to get to 5k is going to be a tough road! 🙂

  2. Really solid work. Those are impressive stats and you’re definitely growing quickly. I’m way behind on Twitter and I didn’t even know what was Stumble Upon before! Will have to check it out. Keep up the good work.

    1. Thanks for reading! Yes, I’m definitely working hard to provide great content to you guys. I’m hoping it’s working.

      Let me know if you figure out a way to get stumble upon to work for you. I’d be interested to hear your results.

      Thanks for sharing!
