This report is more of my own memoir and not designed really to produce any traffic or entertain anyone but others may find it interesting if you have your own products, services or business.
This year was the first time I have ever really attempted to grow my blog which as stated may seem strange but I honestly tend to write just for the enjoyment of writing. However my other passion is actually the web and in particular internet and digital marketing. The subject fascinates me and I have been studying for 4 years now so I thought it was high time I stopped messing around and actually grew my blog with the methods I know work.
So January saw me start this off and since the 1st of January 2014 and up to 27th Feb 2014 I have enjoyed some pretty amazing success.
My web stats stand as follows for 2014 so far until 27/2/14:
A page view is an individual view on my site however a more detailed break down is as follows:

Now before anyone gets overly excited I am well aware that in blog terms I am still a small fish but the site is growing and growing fast. This year we have had 86% new visits. In other terms people have never visited my blog before.
Now I did make a ton of mistakes as well, my Facebook page that I rarely used wasn't linked to my site until a few days ago. To be honest there are a few reasons for this but essentially I was testing a theory that I proved was right (and no I'm not telling you what it was, sorry but its an insiders secret).
On the plus side the site has had nearly 2000 Facebook shares this year alone.
Im actually setting myself a pretty tough schedule this year and producing content is my goal so expect some major free things coming your way soon so buckle you seats there is some major new content on its way.
oh, and one of the reasons I am writing this is to prove that if you want to write you can, it just takes desire. Anyone can do it, I started with just ll visits a day for a long time and now I get at least 400 to 1000. But my goal is to get 1000 visits a day every day and I hope to do this in the next 6 months.
Ill keep you informed.
Now I will leave you with this thought Imagine what having your logo, product or service in front of 30,000 pairs of eyes could do for your business. Just a thought. Its not a bad skill to have, to be able to get thousands of people to come to one location. That's the power of digital marketing.
I will also add that my huge increase in traffic is a direct result of applying my hard earned knowledge and skills to this blog. Its no fluke or luck involved that much I assure you but it comes from a huge amount knowledge of social media, SEO and content marketing. In other words it comes as a direct result of the power of study, not luck and anyone can also achieve the same amount of visits if they learn how to.
It just takes a bit of time and effort
