  • Good stuff mate and thanks for the mention. I am particularly impressed with your RSS subscribers count to be honest. 140 is a huge achievement for a relatively young blog. Your traffic seems OK too if you exclude Google. I honestly think you are on the right way. As you mentioned you really need to establish your brand I think, it’ll help the site a lot.

    Your page 2 is a killer! ;)

    Keep up the good work…!

  • Thats awesome mate , these are good figures..you need to be proud of your work in the last three months…

  • @Ben

    I don’t really get dynamics of my RSS. It is not consistent with traffic. :) Well, can only keep doing what I do.

    Google seems to snap out and I get traffic again. Took almost exactly one month.

    Branding… Going to get logo soon. Thinking how can I improve theme looks without ruining clean and light looks. A lot of tweaks from recent blog critique to do as well.

    @ZK

    Thanks! :) It’s really hard to notice slow improvement so I set myself time to look back and count numbers. Really helps me to beleive that I am indeed moving forward at nice pace.

  • Congratulations are in order. For 3 months these stats are impressive, especially that subscriber figure. If you keep this up the rest of us will have to make an appointment to visit your site pretty soon. Well done and keep it up. Thanks for the mention as well.

  • @Lyndi

    Thanks! :) Having such active and friendly commentators as you and Ben really helps my blogging mood.

  • Keep up the good work, Rarst!

  • @Ky

    Thanks! :) Will do.

  • Hey Rarst,
    Well I found you from another Blog comment. So I guess it does work. Great work in a short time. I hope you start making some money from it to.
    I just became another reader.

  • @Luca

    Comments work. :) Monetization is simply not a priority for me. Making serious money is called work, I have enough of that already. I would be glad if this blog starts paying for itself (hosting/design/promotion/etc) in the future but for now I am working on content, experience and traffic.

    Welcome and thanks for commenting. :)

  • Well done! good to see you havent thought about stopping yet! that means you’re well ahead of most bloggers :D

  • @Tom

    Thanks! :) No point in stopping so early. I guess most drop out because they have some high expectations about instant fame/money/feedback/whatever. Achieveing something is never ever easy otherwise it wouldn’t be goal to achieve.

  • Thanks for the link love…

  • @Nihar

    Thanks to you for being active reader and always commenting on posts! :)

  • Jenelle

    Getting visitors for your blog is pretty hard, really. But you were able to increase your traffic and I believe it was such an achievement for a blogger. Now you’re inspiring me to push harder in this field :) Good luck for the succeeding months!

  • @Jenelle

    Thanks and good luck to your blog as well! :)

  • […] Three, then six, then nine months had passed and so I am here at first birthday of Rarst.net blog. Honestly feels like any other day. So let’s see how this year went for my blog and my readers. :) […]
