Top Posts And Commenters For January 2016

Anyone else amazed at how quickly the new year started off? It seems like yesterday I was ringing in the new year with my wife, my parents, and a couple of my siblings.

Now, we’re off and into February. And, for me, this month is only going to increase momentum. I’ve got a lot planned and hope you do as well.

Comments picked up quite a bit in the month of January. I’m not sure if this is a side-effect of Copyblogger and Michael Hyatt re-enabling comments on their blogs or it could be that people were more willing to engage in comments.

Either way, I’m excited to see people commenting and bringing more value to the blog posts on this site.

After a couple of rough months, it was great to see the site statistics increase again. The blog is almost back to the traffic it was seeing previous to a huge nosedive.

This reminds us that dips and valleys comes in blogging. Don’t freak out. Ride the wave to the finish.
