Despite moving to, I’m still getting residual traffic. This is linking and search engine indexing at work. The nice little spike is of course from googleblog which I talked about in my last post.

Since moving to my own domain, I’m using AWStats which gives a different reporting format. Posting here the monthly chart.

It’s worrying, I’m getting less in Feb. I have not figure out the reason, possibly within normal variation.

No, I have not given up

That’s extactly the message of this post. To tell readers (if any) that I had not given up on my goal and this blog.

I am not giving up, but I’m giving an excuse. The Great Firewall.

It is a real pain updating via proxy. I’m already slipping behind with updates on Best Blog on WordPress. I’m certainly behind on this one.

Yes I thought of moving. In fact I already had the domain But it is hard work moving blog. Did it once with 59ideas, can’t say I enjoy it. It is nice to have the guys running the blog.

Also I’m working on my ideas. One problem with ideas is you tend to spend too much time thinking about them then doing. And when you spend time doing, you don’t want to repeat by writing about them.

Through the process had learnt quite a bit about time management. Balancing real world work with virtual ventures.

I planned to post more updates and lesson learnt in future. Stay tuned.

9 things I learnt about getting blog traffic

A while back Scoble wrote some tips for getting our blog into the A-list.

This blog had been around for (coming to) 2 months – a very short time in blogodom. There is no deny that I’m looking to get into the A-list and earn revenue from online activities like blogging.

This blog is not getting traffic. My two other blogs are.

I surf alot for blog to list on the Best Blog on WordPress. I also looked at blogs that frequently get onto the Fastest Growing blogs and Top Posts.

Here’s what I learn about what gets traffics and what not.

Review of week 5-6

Update of week 5-6 performance and activities.

Time flys. I’m planning marriage this year so there’s plenty of happenings off-line. Updating of this blog is certainly slacking behind. 59ideas though is gaining traction slowly and nicely. seems to reach a temporary plateau. Need more ideas to push it along. The redesign is ready and I need to fix a time to get it launched.

Managed to get hosting for Ken and the Art of MotorCycle Maintenance up but it’s behind schedule as well. Plenty of catching up to do.

Torn between skipping a beat or continue to launch sites at the planned rate of one every 2 weeks, I decided to press on.

Not alone on this online revenue quest

Tommy at Sick Of The Money Making Scams left me a comment today. He has a similar goal of earning revenue from online sources. His target is to “find a sustainable income from the Internet by the time my child is born” (in end September this year!).

Tommy is looking at many program and finding out what works and what doesn’t. I had alluded before my view on such programs. Needless to say, I cannot agree with him more on the topics and what he is doing. Check out his research on scams, ebooks, get rich quick programs.
If you are trying earn revenue online, learn the rope, don’t fall for the traps. Learn to fish so that you have fish abundant as you need.

Jochen at DarK Moon Blog is using Adsense together with his online games and music to make online revenue. Very interesting idea. If you have talent in those areas, this is one way to go.

Whether online or offline, it is important know your strengths and find ways to use them for to maximise return.

Good fortune to your quest!
