New Blog Traffic

I am really pleased that my blog traffic seems to be growing exponentially week on week. This is also translating into a small increase in advertising revenue - although I am still far from being able to retire on my blog income I probably earn significantly more than a farmer in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Last month I had over 3,500 hits.

I have attached my latest google stats.

My Peter Griffins Quotes page has shown particualar growth and probably accounts for the majority of the traffic increase. As to why this is I am unsure. 

My goal for next month is 6,000 visitors.

This is a ruthless world and one must be ruthless to cope with it.

To help a friend in need is easy, but to give him your time is not always opportune.

To truly laugh, you must be able to take your pain, and play with it!

Words are cheap. The biggest thing you can say is 'elephant'.
