Thanks once again to everyone who took the time to leave a comment. I truly enjoy hearing your thoughts on the subjects I write. Please keep the comments coming!

Site Statistics

Sessions – Decreased 11.32%

Users – Decreased 11.74%

Pageviews – Decreased 10.44%

Pages Per Session – Increased 0.99%

Average Session Duration – Decreased 0.06%

Bounce Rate – Decreased 8.44%

New Sessions – Decreased 1.44%

You may notice the statistics look different this month. Google Analytics released new terminology which changed things up.

No longer are there Visits and Unique Visitors. These terms have become Sessions and Users, respectively. There’s also the change to Average Session Duration and New Sessions.

It can be a bit confusing at first but once you study it, the new terms make sense.

As you can see from the information above, JMLalonde.com suffered a loss in sessions and users this month. I’m bummed but okay.

Could I ask you to do me a solid? After reading this post, would you be willing to share a piece of my content that you’ve found helpful? To make it easy, you can go to the blog post and click the share content button below the post.

This will hopefully help attract new users and get the blog more exposure. Doing this will make me eternally grateful. (-:

Site News

I’ve got a couple of projects in the pipeline as I type this.

First, I’m creating a new free giveaway for new blog subscribers. Don’t that you’re already subscribed. Once the new giveaway is ready, I’ll be sure to send it to my email subscribers first. This also means Leadership Is Dangerous will be pulled from the site as a freebie. Be sure to get it now if you’re interested in the free eBook.

Next, I have the pleasure of being interview on Jared Easley’s podcast, Starving The Doubts. I’m not sure when the episode will air, but we should be recording the podcast episode soon.

Lastly, in a bit of personal news, I completed my first color run. A local Christian school held their first annual Western Michigan Christian ColorRush. It was a blast! May holds my first Hit & Run 5K in Grand Rapids. This looks to be a blast as it’s very similar to the hit TV show Wipeout!
