9MM Blog-zine's Anniversary

Happy three years!!!

Its been already three years since I have put up this blog. So far, its been a great journey. I get to meet new friends online and learn different things as I share my life and interests to the internet world.

Again, a zillion thanks to all that visited, read, commented, followed, liked, tweeted, shared, back-linked, cross-linked, copied, plagiarized, spammed and infected this blog. You know who you are.

This article is to summarize the whole third year of this blog and its goal for the fourth year onwards.

Third Year Summary

There were a lot of changes, issues and hangups happened with me and this blog last year. Some of the turning points were:

- I got to live with my parents-in-law's house for almost a year,
- Cielo turned a year old and got her christened,
- Changed blog url which caused a significant drop on my traffic,
- Resolved issue with site traffic by doing SEO,
- Changed theme to Streetsmart Guides,
- Went back to graveyard shift for a few months and then back again to early morning shifts
- Launched Project 100 (no update yet on this one),
- Joined Google Plus and got active with Twitter (not that really active though),
- Got promoted and moved to another project
- and some others

So Far...

On 9MM-Zine's stats page, I have a tremendous improvement from last year.

- 9MM-zine's all time pageviews went up to 113,815 from 44,045,
- It averages from 300 to 450 pageviews per month,
- Still, Georgina Wilson holds the all time pageviews at 8,063 hits,
- And provides the highest traffic to this blog.

Moving Forward

I need 9MM Blog-zine to improve this year. These are the little changes that will happen here soon...

- Lots of Streetsmart Guides,
- Having my own domain name,
- Some comic strips focusing on a fictional character I created,
- Changes in the layout,
- Create new logos and banner designs on the right sidebar,

I hope all will be completed before the end of March so that I can give this blog a new look. It would be exciting to see the work I'm going to do.

Again, thank you so much for all who had supported 9MM-Zine. May you continue to support me and this blog for years to come.
