June 2018 was an awesome month. We had 415 approved comments from 137 readers. These exclude my replies.
I want to thank everyone that made it happen. I must also thank my ghost readers. You are all awesome. You make my blogging business a success. Without you readers, this blog would be a graveyard.
It’s another new month to read articles and leave useful comments everywhere. On this blog, we had an exciting month of March.
There were many of you who read my blog. 88 decided to drop at least one comment. In total, we had 161 comments. This is beginning to get exciting.
A few more days to the end of 2014 and the blogging journey has been exciting since the start of this ending year.
November has been impressive with most of you making it here on my blog, sharing my articles, linking back and commenting my blog posts. I keep telling everyone that my blog is where it is because of its readers.
Each minute you (my readers) spend on this blog is worth a lot to me. I heartily appreciate your engagement and will always remain grateful.
Before I get into commenting stats for November 2014, let me quickly recommend you check out Adrienne Smith’s community building product. Adrienne’s strategies have greatly helped me grow my blog. She has put up EVERYTHING you need to create a popular blog in her product. So go check it out and possibly grab a copy.
I haven’t used my blog engagement and traffic plugin for a couple of months now. It was just some negligence on my part.
If you don’t know about it, MyCommentAuthors is one of my plugins you can get for free. It’s simple but very powerful plugin for every WordPress blog where blog commenting is given an importance.
What it does is it allows you to generate a list of everyone that drops a comment on your blog for a chosen month. This list is generated in simple HTML format and what you do with it is create a blog post like this one to say Thank You to your commentators.
It has been outspokenly established that blog commenting is an exciting blogging exercise with tons of advantages like exposure, traffic, community growth, business growth, etc.
Now, while looking at my income reports, I found out that my community members have been largely responsible for a huge portion of my affiliate earnings. Whenever I do an affiliate product review, I monitor my sales and commissions. My friends actually buy from me and that makes me money.
One of the most exciting blog posts I will be publishing every month is my monthly reports. This will include income, comments, traffic and growth in general.
I started off with commenting and engagement reports. In these reports, I published a list of all my commentators of the month. You may think it’s a hard job to count those comment authors and their comments.
Well, I simplified the task by creating a WordPress plugin which you can get here for free. All you have to do is run it in your admin area and it will nicely generate the list of comment authors and the number of their comments. Read this post for details.
