Happy 10,000 Views to Me

A quick moment of self-praise and recognition –

Brett’s Blog recently crossed the 10,000th view mark. I actually have all of you to thank for that. I started this blog back in January, not knowing what I was going to get into, and I’ve discovered an excellent tool for thought, expression, discussion and discovery. I love blogging.

With that said, it’s important to note that I hit this mark much sooner than expected due to the power of the right distribution. My Weekend Reading from last week featured a link referring to Anne Coulter. A news blog called Sphere.com picked it up and linked to it. You can see what happened below.

Obviously, traffic like this is amazing, but will it amount to much. Maybe a little, but spikes like these are not anywhere near as important as the gradual increase of 4-5 new viewers a week over time. Either way, though, I’ll take what I can get.

  1. Brett,
    What you don’t know is that about 90% of your hits come from me clicking all over your blog. And that big spike of yours…yeah, that was just a slow day at work for me, so I went to town on your blog.

  2. serously, put some spicy pics of yourself on here and watch the clicks soar.

  3. congrats of breaking the 10k views are you planning on monetizing your site?

  4. Few4th – thanks for the useless views. I guess I should just divide my views by 10 every day to get a good idea of what I’m really getting. But, hey, I’ll take it.

    Couv – How bout some spicy pics of you!!

    BeefJerky – yeah, I do want to monetize. Having a little trouble getting started, but it’s definitely in the plans.
