Wow, 43% of you are just like me and have a Personal Finance blog, with another 11% on the way. I really need to reach out to different audiences!
Nah, I like the community I have now. You’re (mostly) all great people, with only a few trolls here and there (Realist). This site has grown because of all of you, whether you just wanted to read about getting a free laptop, pack a frugal lunch, find technical service bulletins for your car, or any of the other random posts (Webkinz, blogger tips).
As a side note, I noticed my Technorati ranking drop about 2,300 and authority drop about 40 in the last few days. I guess it’s really been about 6 months since the free laptop and frugal lunch articles hit Lifehacker and Digg, respectively, and those links aren’t counted anymore. I’m still pretty high up, but it’s sad to see the numbers fall. However, I’m happy to be maintaining steady growth in readership (and advertising dollars), while fine-tuning my writing abilities at the same time.
