It rained today. Not quite ferocious, but strong just the same. Now it’s just dripping like a leaky faucet. Here’s to hoping that it continues until at least tomorrow morning. I’d like to step outside and enjoy a smoke on my patio in the rain.
I think I’ve been working too hard this week. I came home today and just crashed for a few hours. I typically don’t do that, especially on a Friday when I try to extend my weekend by pushing myself to stay up well beyond my normal bedtime. On any other weekday, I’ll come home and hit the gym. So to come home and just sack out says something about my physical needs.
I blame work. With these huge tradeshows coming up and being the only fully-committed writer on staff means that I’m putting down 10-hour days minimum. Plus, to demonstrate my leadership qualities, I feel it’s only fair that I stay late when the wage employees stay late. I’ll tell you one thing though: I’ll be happy when things get back to normal.
So, here we are on Coffee Friday, which just so happens to fall on the last day of the month. What I’d like to start doing is recapping the activity on the site at the end of each month, mainly for the feed subscribers who don’t get to see the News section.
With that said, November has seen pretty good returns in terms of hits, considering it’s only been one and a half months since I launched. I currently get about 60 unique visitors daily. That’s not too shabby in my opinion, but I know that that’s not going to translate into a very high CTR for AdSense. Still, it’s a start, which is why you’ve probably seen several layout changes if you’re a frequent visitor. More tweaks are coming in the future. Be prepared.
