Another month has flown past so it’s that time again for our monthly stats roundup. I think we’ve put out some good posts this month and traffic is our best ever, so things are looking positive.

A bit of up and down this month – Im pleased that the site has had its highest traffic month so far, we saw a good rise in search engine visits and traffic in the middle of the month but that seems to have dropped off in the last week so Im not confident on beating this next month – will have to work hard and get some good posts out!
Income is up this month, I increased the price of my display ads with BuySellAds as traffic is up so I have aligned them more with sites of similar traffic levels. Affiliate income is also up with ElegantThemes in particluar doing well this month – Unfortunately they dont allow you to see which links convert so I dont know which posts these are from.
