THANK YOU! Three million page views and first 100 days as a self-hosted blog!
This is a post I should have made two days ago, but heck, what difference does it make? 😉
Last August 1, The Filipino Scribe has already reached the 3,000,000 total page views milestone. TFS first went online last March 31, 2011, which means it’s been around for 40 months now. On average, TFS now gets 70,000 views per month.
Although my blog has been receiving that much traffic since 2012 and 2013, I wasn’t able to capitalize on its popularity financially because during those years, TFS isn’t a self-hosted site yet.
I began seriously considering doing the upgrade last January although I was only able to accomplish the transition last April 20.
It’s been over 100 days since that transition and I can say that I am satisfied with the results. Despite initial hiccups (failed redirects, missing comments, etc.), the upgrade is now an unqualified success.
TFS now has a better web design as well as its own logo (created by Kenneth Surillo os KenZeroArt). Although the quality and frequency of posts has remained as before, TFS can now be described as a commercial blog.
I say that because TFS now run ads courtesy of Google Adsense, Infolinks, and Nuffnang. Rest assured, the presence of these ads does not in any way affect TFS’ content.
I want to thank all readers who helped TFS reach all these milestones. This blog won’t be as successful as it is now if not for your continued support.
Please pardon me if this post sounds like pure gloating. LOL. 🙂
