Blog Update- It’s Been Over One Year

It’s been a little over a year since we’ve started this blog.  A few highlights.

We have had almost 76,000 hits in the past year.  That is a little over 200 hits per day, average.  Lately we hover between 75 and 200, with a few big days (Bryce’s surgery, Jazlyn’s birth) with over 2k hits.  It’s been fun!  The most popular posts, traffic wise, have been the one about demotivational posters and the Ray Boltz controversy.  Notable additions to the blog have been my Twitters (new today, check it out on the sidebar, they are micro blog posts), and the Flickr widget.  We’ve made such big announcements as Bryce’s surgery, our new pregnancy, Jazlyn’s birth, our move, and have posted pictures and videos of our family.  The internet has made this possible, and I love the fact that our out-of-town friends and family have this as a little source of information on what’s going on in our lives.

In less than two weeks we will be in our new house, and will probably not have any huge news to share, however, I’ll be keeping the blog up to date as best as possible.  I will try to post more pictures and videos.  I have to pay for storage, and it’s expired, so whenever I feel like dropping some money to WordPress, I’ll do that and will have the ability to add more music, videos, and pictures.  (Donations anyone?  🙂

Keep on reading!  It’s been a pleasure sharing our lives with you all.

    Joel- I just heard on NPR today that you can easily make a full time living from a blog once you get 100,000 unique hits per day. Keep up the great work 🙂

    Oh, and thanks for the link to Poly-Wood Inc.
