During the Yakezie Alexa Ranking Challenge, you helped BFS soar from an Alexa ranking of more than 8 million in March 2010 to 49,852 on October 31, 2010. Thank you!!!

After posting my first ever Blog Statistics and Income Update, it was obvious that we needed some new goals, lol. It’s also obvious that everyone else is as nosey as me and enjoys a peek into another person’s stats, hahaha.

Goals for New Year’s Day

Here is what we are shooting for by New Year’s Day – January 1st, 2011:

Alexa – Maintain a Ranking at or around 50,000
Visits – 35,000
Feedburner Subscribers – 300
Twitter Followers – 200


Here is where we are at today:

Alexa – 48,503 (On Target and then some, woot!)
Visits – 26,993 (8007 To Go)
Feedburner Subscribers – 214 (86 To Go)
Twitter Followers – 196 (Only 4 To Go – I can taste it!)

We are still well on our way! I’ll be posting these updates every week and hopefully we’ll blow the targets out of the water just like we did with every other goal we have set since March!

I will also continue posting monthly and yearly blog statistics and income updates from here on out, so stay tuned at the beginning of every month!

Feel free to ask any questions below. Thank you all for helping me reach my own personal goal of blogging full time by 2012!
