Thank You Fellow Bloggers - I just thought I would let you know that it's my rough three month review and so far I'm very happy with the success of Our Rants & Raves.
We're gradually growing in visitors each week, so as long as that traffic continues to increase I guess the work is basically rewarding and the blog is basically successful.
The blog gets about 100+ viewers a day on average, but its pretty unpredictable depending on whether it's featured on some blog promotion that day. We've had over 500 and never fallen below 30.
Two of the posts have been reprinted so far - my Obama endorsement was reprinted in the Chicago Sun Times on the Monday BEFORE the election. That was VERY cool. I'm very proud of that one. Overall, I would say that it's worth the effort so I'll keep at it.
I'll try to remember to review in another three months or so. Until then, THANKS for appreciating my work enough to keep coming back. PLEASE feel free to email me with any feedback that might help. PLEASE comment whenever possible - few do it, but it's great when it happens.
THANK YOU - Michael
PS - For those who don't know, I also contribute to other blogs. I often post my work on Papamoka Straight Talk daily, which reaches THOUSANDS! My thanks to Mat O'Keefe of Papamoka for helping us grow.
