This Blog Reaches 1,500 Unique Visitors per Month

I am glad of the progress I have made with my blogging efforts. Since starting in May 2008, I am glad that I have gotten to know a few of the bloggers and commenters better over the years.

I am also glad that this blog serves 1,500 people a month!

That is alot of people that I am reaching out to which I would never have been able to done with a normal job! Unless I am a pastor of a mega church or something....

To reach out to so many people, to be communicating with them and to be able to at least share with them my lessons and experiences is indeed a HUMBLING thought.

If you are one of these 1,500 people out there who is reading my blog each month, I would like to say a big THANK YOU for supporting me throughout my journey towards financial freedom.

This has been a very difficult period in my life. Unemployement, job search woes, rejections from potential employers.... If I could feel any more depressed, it is NOW.

Yet, it is also the BEST time of my life. I have never been so free in my entire life. I can spend the day thinking about what I would like to share with my readers. I can observe things moving by slowly. I also cannot explain the joy that I get when strangers come and leave encouraging words to me. Thank you.. Thank you..for all the kind words, encouragement, and even recommendations on the way forward. I guess I can never thank each one of you enough =)

Afterall, each of you do have your unique experience to share with me and I must say that I am a lot WISER today because of your sharing. If this blog was just a private journal that I wrote and kept somewhere at home, I would not have grown so much as a person.

So my job search carries on....

With each job rejection comes more pain but I guess I have to keep on fighting to move ahead. Failures are part and parcel of life. I also have to trust in my God that He knows what is best for me and my family.


  1. Rejection is the mother of success... It helps steel your confidence, build your experience, and shape the way you handle yourself in front of interviewers. :)

    Don't give up.

    P.S. I didn't really check how many unique views I have over a month, but total page views checking via adsense for Jan 2010 was 5000 views for Wealth Buch. CTR was only 0.08% though :(

  2. Congraduation to you!!! You really did a good job for your blog.

  3. Thanks a lot for all the compliments. It can be a scary thought to think that this blog is actually drawing so many readers. I ran a check and realised that this blog already had close to 50,000 unique visitors from jan 2009 till now. That is really a SCARY thought....

    I do not know which ads give me the most money. I simply do not track this kind of details.
