April’s Blogging Thoughts

Well April was a good month of blogging here at BobBuskirk.com. I set a record with the most blog posts I have done in a month, 30! I guess I had a lot to talk about and I actually made time to write. I used to just blog when I had free time. No I am taking the time out of my day to blog. It is nice being able to express your feelings and actually have people listen. The blog has come a long way since I first started it. April brought a lot of cool things for the blog.

We had our first contest. Which went well, I wish I would have got more entries, but hopefully the next contest will go better. Cher Free was the lucky winner of the 1GB flash drive. There were also some very popular posts this month that got a lot of comments, they included RSS or Bookmarks, Quit Looking for Instant Results, Timeshare…How about a DreamShare, and Another Digg for ThinkComputers. It’s good to see a lot of people commenting, it means they are actually interested in what you have to say. Plus I also give a shoutout to my top commentators.

RSS subscriptions have been up. Before April I was averaging around 20-30 RSS subscriptions. Now I average 50-60, which is a nice improvement. In the beginning of April I wrote down my Technorati ranking (34,033) and my Alexa ranking (172,399). As of today my Technorati ranking is 32,522 and my Alexa raking is 154,790. So there is an improvement on both of those. The blog really has not made any money, but that is not what it is here to do. Hopefully May I will increase my numbers and keep more of you coming back!
