I can’t believe it’s been a month already. This month, I’ve been super busy with other activities and you can see that the number of blog posts have actually gone down. Comments are at an all time low. However, my traffic has actually more than doubled since last month.

My old content is still generating decent traffic. My post about mac accessories is still generating the most traffic. Organic search is quickly becoming a major source of traffic. StumbleUpon is still bringing in the most traffic so I definitely recommend social bookmarking sites to people. Analyzing the traffic chart, the 3 small spikes were stumbleupon hits from my old blog posts. The last big spike at the end was my post about my evening at the 37signals Speaking of Success talk. Right after the talk, I went home and blogged about it. Jason Fried of 37signals picked up on it and tweeted it from his twitter account. That got me some good traffic right there.
So what’s the takeaway? I wrote almost half as many articles as I did last month but got more than twice the traffic. The key here is marketing. Just because you write it doesn’t mean they’ll come. Once you write a blog post, promote it like crazy. So next month I am going to try something new. I’m going to twitter, facebook status, linkedin status all my blog posts to see if that has any effect on the traffic.
