This month was a bit up and down – I moved to a new host at the start of the month and as you can see from the analytics shot above, this caused the traffic to be right down on the site. I’m not sure why this would be – Google was sending a lot less traffic, then something seemed to click and traffic has been up for the second half of the month. You will see above, a big drop on one day in the middle of the month – the site was down for half a day as the datacenter had some problems. So, modest increase in traffic last month but next month should be a good one if traffic continues like the second half of the month.
In regards to income, Im pleased to have crossed the $3000 mark for the month and I received income from the most sources ever – 28 different affiliate programs.
