In last one week, I have been included in two carnivals ,Yakezie Carnival and Carnival of personal finance. It’s a great honor and a reiterates the sense that I am going towards right direction in terms of blogging.
This week also marked a significant event in blogging career, I earned my first income. I made a lot of change to this site, including setting up a Advertiser Page to let advertisers and sponsors know that I am not just writing for fun, I need rewards too.
In terms of blog building, I now have decent number of RSS feed subscriber and Twitter followers. Alexa traffic rank went down to 700,000 and I am quiet hope full of making it through the Yakezie challenge. External links, Klout and Moz ranks are also improving. Specially it’s nice to see an upward visitor-graph on Google-Analytic.
