Sustained popularity?

My little blog (and it remains very little) has seen an odd trend the last few months.

When I started this in November or December of 2007 (I can’t even remember when), a good month saw maybe 50 hits.  That changed in January 2009 when I spiked at 489 hits that month … one of my stories about Cubs fans was autolinked at Dallas Mavericks’ owner Mark Cuban’s site, and the traffick rolled in.  But things went back to normall.  Through November 2010, I only had two months with over 200 visits (June ’09, November ’09).  November of 2010 saw only 93 hits.

Since then, the trend in hits has been up … 236 in December 2010, 153 to start 2011, then 238, 400, 483, and May saw a run at the end that got me to 402 last night.

I have been looking at which posts draw the most traffic … many of the posts on teaching have been viewed the most … but many other posts have quite a few number of views as well. 

My blog is still a humble little blog … 400 hits is nothing compared to even the moderately small dogs.  I just took notice that there seem to now be a number of months that are seeing sustained viewership.

Maybe it is time to look into selling ad space?

    Do email updates to your blog count?

    Do NOT ever sell AD space, unless they are making you an offer you cannot refuse. And it’s gotta be a really nice offer. I never sold AD space for my newzletter though I’m sure I plugged things here and there but never sold out. Keep the integrity going, I say…

    I do not know if email updates to my blog count as hits …

    I wouldn’t sell adspace unless it was like for the Chicago White Sox, and it was for something like a lot of money or free tickets.
