Four days back I saw this movie. The name of the movie was 10000 B.C. The movie was ok and I had good time. But in order to make “Happy Endings” the story lost it’s charm. Would have been an ideal end for the movie. Though you always have “Happy Endings” if you take it in different perspective. (Hmmmm. I’ve started to use heavy words. Just to make the post heavy. Don’t mind them). This post is not about this movie. But about my blog.
Yesterday I achieved the first milestone. I got 10000 hits to my blog. No cheating nothing. I don’t have to tell that because it’s been six month for those hits. Anywhere else it would have been much more till now. It doesn’t make a difference to me. I’m really happy to achieve this. Just a psychological win that will make me dip deeper.
I had announced a contest on entrecard for the person who hits 9999. I knew that would happen today. Here is the screenshot of the person who was the winner. He commented as chato and is a good cartoonists I suppose.
The day before yesterday I was about to upgrade my blog. But my uncle came to stay at our house. I was happy but had to sleep early and shutdown PC. So was unable to upgrade. Today when I was ready to upgrade, there was some problem with server router. My site was inaccessible in some parts. So the upgrade is still in queue.
After this much hits, I’m ready to make some changes to my blog. They’ll be as and when I get lots of free time. Thanks to all the readers all around the world for reading nonsense and helping to achieve this.
And at last I am writing my review on entrecard. When I started using entrecard I wrote some posts regarding this site. I don’t think those who’ll be reading my blog will be unaware of entrecard. I’ll still give links to my earlier posts about entrecard.
Entrecard – what is it??
On a high
Things changed after that. I tried entrecard for a week. I got some serious traffic and good number of pageviews. But in the end it was not at all good traffic. As I expected earlier, the traffic was temporary. Things like “u drop I follow” will just give traffic to your blog. Not the readers. And I am always looking for readers. I don’t expect comments also. I know they’ll come automatically if you read.
So after a surge of traffic with the help of both entrecard and linkrefferal, I stopped. I stopped for a week. I didn’t comment anywhere nor did I replied to the comments posted on my posts. Just remained silent and did nothing, other than trying to solve domain problems. This was to check if I’m really getting readers or it’s temporary.
The results were expected. The average number of visitors dropped. And hence the pageviews. But still happy that I got those readers in spite of doing nothing. Now that I have got a domain I need to do better. So I’ll be active everywhere. At least I’ll try to. I’ll keep entrecard widget. It’s not because of the traffic, but the readers it gave. While looking at statistics I found that there is some increase in readers. Those who bookmarked my site. This number is very less compared to traffic. But good for me. In the end entrecard is good for those who have adsense on their blogs. They’ll get good revenue. But it’s not for those without adsense.
I wrote in a comment in the second link above that I’ll not post about traffic for 10 days. Now it’s more than that. ^_^ I’ll keep updating about my blogging progress.
Keep reading nonsense and
