April has been a busy month for the site. I had a couple of guest posts @ KevinMD and Fulfilled Physicians. Another post, Double Your Money with the Rule of 72, was featured by my friends @ Rockstar Finance. The Sunday Best was launched to share some other great sites and posts with the PoF community. I’ve continued to post two original posts per week.
Let’s talk numbers. I love numbers.
According to Jetpack’s site stats, the site has had 11,512 visitors and 41,622 pageviews in a little under 4 months. 18,114 of those were in April, with about 11 hours left in the month as I type this up. The range was from 314 on April 2nd to 2,589 on April 15th (Thank you, Rockstar Finance!). Google Analytics reports 18,051, so they’re pretty much in agreement, which makes the numbers seem valid enough. On average, that’s about 600 per day. It’s amazing to know that my work is being viewed that many times a day, and exciting to watch the numbers grow. After all, I am a numbers guy.
You want more numbers? Great idea!

In May, I will be guest posting @ whitecoatinvestor.com and DrWiseMoney.com. Twice weekly posts will continue, and I’ll be heading west for a week late in the month for a conference / vacation, so I’d better get a few posts ahead by then.
