Please ignore this self congratulatory post

Three months ago I mentioned, in passing, that this website/blog “had significantly more visitors (>19,000) and more page views (>30,000) in April than ever before.”

I am delighted to note that those April figures were no blip. July 2013 saw the highest number of unique visitors to this website and blog: 20,754 And the number of items viewed totalled 31,790.

Over the last 3 months the average monthly figures have been: 19,710 visitors and 30,560 views.

July 15 was the most visited day ever – 1037. A normal day is round 500-600 with a spike on most Tuesdays of just over 1,000 after I send out my weekly newsletter.

The latest figures confirm the upwards trend of visitor numbers and ‘views’ during 2013.  I don’t have any records from when I started the blog in 2006. But I can tell that both figures are now more than 3 times those of just two years ago in 2011 when average monthly visitors were typically around 6,000 and average monthly views were around 9,000.

I continue to post one or two new items here each week.

The increased level of attention given to this website and blog are not (yet) matched by increased earnings from speaking engagements or from writing commissions. However it still feels good in that more and more people seem to be interested in what I have to say. And that’s a reason for me to celebrate. Move along now please. Nothing to see here.

  1. Congratulations Mark, and thank you for sharing your inspiring news. When we looked into setting up a blog aimed at small business owners at the end of 2011, we approached a website designer who told us “No one will read an accountant’s blog.” Needless to say, we didn’t work with them. It is a relief to realise that not only are small business owners looking to continually learn and be inspired but so are accountants themselves.

    We only have a fraction of your outstanding website traffic numbers, but it’s fantastic to hear that it IS possible. Thank you for your generosity in sharing.
