Starting in February of 2007, I started this little blog with very little in terms of expectations. At the end of the month, I had a total of 27 views to the blog. Most of them were probably mine.
The month after, I had a whopping 50% increase and jumped to 37 views. Well, it looks like I increased, but actually I decreased from two hits a day down to one because the month of February was only a short month of blogging. I think I started somewhere in the middle of the month averaging my views per day to being 2/day. So, yes, a total of 30 days of work got me a total of a view a day basically. It was depressing and like many who blog, I’m sure I was wondering “what am I doing?”
Somehow, the 3rd month gave me a little inspiration. Thanks to wordpress, our posts are not just optimized for the internet, but they also show up in some categories on the blog site where other “wanna be bloggers” are able to see our posts and give their support, if not just their curious fingers clicking on our well thought out post titles.
It took me another 4 months (yes 7 months total) before I hit the 1000 views+ mark. In September, I had almost doubled what I had in terms of website traffic in one month. The google sandbox is reality. It takes a while to get a blog (and a lot of hard work & energy spent) to get it more traffic. Just a few months after in December, I increased my traffic 800%!!!

Byeong Hun An - US Amateur Champion
Last year, it was Korean Kiwi Danny Lee who broke Tiger Wood’s 14 year record of being the youngest golfer to win the United States Amateur Golf Championship. This year, An Byung-Hun (also spelled Byeong-Hun An) decided 18 years and one month was too old for the prestigious event which has bred professionals Phil Mickelson, Justin Leonard and recent PGA winner Ryan Moore (from my hometown of Puyallup). High Schooler An was 17 years when beating Clemson University Senior Ben Martin 7 to 5. Continue reading

Well, not exactly “quoted”, but cited or referred to when trying to support a point…
Earlier tonight, I was just checking out my statistics as I do almost daily. Yes, I’m addicted to numbers & the traffic that my blog drives. It’s not something I’m incredibly proud of, but rather it’s very interesting what brings a visitor to my blog.
Nevertheless, I looked at some of the referring links and one picqued my interest. Continue reading
Not trying to be conceded, but you never know when this will be deleted off the internet…this will get buried into my blog anyhow.
