My gratitude blog

We're #76 worldwide in WordPress

We're #76 worldwide in WordPress

I just noticed that the one month anniversary of my blog has passed and I’m truly thankful and actually quite a bit overwhelmed by the response that the site has received from my fellow Good Times’ listeners. The site has received a high level of interaction from the fans of the Good times show and also from the show’s hosts with Mo, Mojo, Grace Lee and even Miguel getting in touch with me either through this blog, on-air or through private messages…

If you would indulge me, I’d just like to toot my own horn and share some statistics and milestones about the site so far…

  1. August 12, 2008 – the site went online with my very first post – “10 things I love about the Good times show”
  2. August 28, 2008 – I post the Vaclair commercial and promote it on other sites… As a result, the site gets 315 views with the Vaclair airline commercial getting the most views…
  3. Sept. 1, 2008 – Grace Lee mentions the site on-air for the first time, and praises it as being better than their own multiply site… The site breaks the 1,000 view barrier and gets 1,035 views! A milestone…
  4. Sept 2 – 4, 2008 – the site averages nearly 1,000 visitors a day before dropping off sharply during the weekends…
  5. Sept 5, 2008 – I submit the site to to see how the site compares to other top Philippine blogs in my niche (entertainment & lifestyle)… The site comes in at a lowly #145
  6. Sept. 11, 2008 – I post the transcript of the Janice de Belen Forbidden Questions and the site got 2,109 page views… Another milestone… Meanwhile the overall site hits climbs past 10,000 hits… Top Blog ranking hits #50…
  7. Sept. 16, 2008 – I receive a message from Mo asking me to post the ghastly Boy Abunda billboard on my blog so that the viewers can check it out while they talk about it the following day… The site goes viral with 5,492 hits for that day’s show… Top blog ranking hits #20

As of this writing, the site has a total of 21,043 hits with a Philippine Top Blog ranking of #22 and here’s the kicker, the site is ranked #76 worldwide for all WordPress blogs! Check it out here… It’s a big deal because there are literally millions of WordPress blogs worldwide…

Again, my deepest appreciation for my dear readers and of course to our favorite hosts Mo, Mojo, Grace and Miguel… This blog is for you guys!

Keep reading and supporting our favorite morning show!

Good times!
