Now, here’s my top ten posts in May!

Site Statistics

This month’s stats are incredibly mind-boggling. I may never see this type of growth in a while.

  • Visits increased 101.5%
  • Pageviews increased 104.8%
  • Views per Visitor increased 1.9%

It’s quite unfathomable to have far exceeded my 15% growth rate I have anticipated. In hindsight, I attribute several factors to this exponential growth:

  1. Better commenting – I’m learning from exceptional bloggers and commenters like Dan Black, Lincoln Parks, Ngina Otiende, and Joe Lalonde on leveraging this important skill. This could be time consuming – but a perfect way to really engaging and share insights with other like-minded experts.  
  2. Leveraging other platforms – I use LinkedIn groups and other forums (e.g., TED Talk) to share my content. For instance, I had nearly 1,500 people from the TED community read my article on Living Intentionally in Your Defining Decade that I wrote in response to Meg Jay’s TED Talk and her book Defining Decade.
  3. Connecting with bloggers– As I seek to build a genuine relationship with bloggers who have greater presence, know-how, and knowledge, I am indebted to their support. One lesson I have learned is that those who are successful never hold back – they are lavish in their praise, help, and encouragement. Their generosity has humbled me again and created me motivation as well.
