50,000 Page Views

newspaper A little off the analog blogging for a sec. I just wanted to note this for posterity’s sake (and any potential advertisers I suppose), that for the past 3 months, I’ve been getting right around 50,000 page views per month. That’s not bad for a measly little blog with less focus than I probably should have.

Ah, well. My current goal is to be making $5.00 per day from Adsense or other related advertisements or commissions. I only have one constraint for that goal, however. I want to do it without putting ads on every single page. I think you, my wonderful visitors/readers/friends, should not have to put up with ads. However, those one-time visitors who hit one particular page and then leave – I’d like to capture their exit by way of an advertisement.

$5.00 per day is a pretty tiny goal, but with this rule in place, and the fact I’m not quite popular enough to command a million visitors, I think this is a reasonable goal for now. Once I’ve hit that goal, I’ll move it up and shoot for something higher. You have to start somewhere.

A note to potential advertisers: I wouldn’t mind hearing what you have to say if you’ve got a proposal or an idea in mind to target my loyal readers. The reason I say that within eye-shot of them is because I want it to be well known I strongly believe only those offers which would interest my readership will be considered. If it isn’t a direct benifit to my readers, I don’t care what you’re offer is. Nobody wants crap. However, if you have a great product or offer, please let me know about it. I’d love to write about and promote cool, interesting and thought provoking gadgets, phones, bean bag chairs, or business strategy books, courses, seminars or conferences.

Thinking about it? Shoot me a note with any questions, suggestions, comments, etc. As always, comments here work fine too.
