Wow are we really into february allready? January has absolutely flown past for me – I have been working hard this month, with the impending launch of my theme company- ThemeFurnace I also made a resolution to try and up the posting rate on WPLift which I managed with help from our new writer Noumaan Yaqoob who has contributed some great posts over the last couple of months. I’m looking to add another writer to the team so if you’re interested, please get in touch with samples of your work.

Traffic is right up from last last month which I expected, we had our best traffic month ever in January which Im pleased about and we cemented a position in the Alexa top 10k. Alexa is not the most reliable metrics to judge a sites traffic by but as you move up and get a higher rating it becomes more and more accurate, my ultimate goal is to crack the top 5k. All our other stats have also grown nicely so 2012 is shaping up to be a good year for WPLift allready.
