I'm sure, given your budget, $1,000 a day is a drop in the bucket.
As this blog begins to take shape and people start noticing, it’s interesting to see where things go.
Sure, I’m averaging “only” 500 unique visitors a day at the moment, but I’m guessing that’s the way things start out for everyone.
If I get lucky and the right person notices, national exposure happens and we’re off and running. I see 35 hits coming from the Seattle PI over the last couple days, so maybe it’s beginning to get some traction.
I hope so. It’s a story that needs to be told (readers, please pass the word around and feel free to link to this blog from your own site).
Just a matter of time until USA Today has my story on its front page.
In the meantime, I’ve committed to blogging about it every day, no matter what, until your suit is over and done with (and then I’ll probably keep right on blogging).
Speaking of hits, I checked my “sessions” stats today to see who was hitting the site and from where they were coming, and #2 with 149 separate sessions this week alone?
That would be IP 22.214.171.124, and that would be you.
The biggest day this week in terms of your office visiting the blog was Tuesday, the 17th, with some 40 sessions. That was the I Can Dodge Bullets post about the gal we rescued from foreclosure in Ohio last week.
Must have been a good one.
at a cost of?
Had I the time, I’d sit down and do the actual math, determining the average length of stay, the total hours spent, and the cost to the taxpayers of this state.
What the heck . . .
Just for fun, let’s say your staffers average only 5 minutes per visit (that’s conservative). So, on Tuesday alone, your staffers spent something like 200 minutes on the site.
That’s 3.3 hours, and that’s minimum. I’m guessing it may actually be twice that, or more.
And the hourly rate?
What, a couple hundred bucks an hour or so, all things considered?
More, even? Perhaps twice that?
No idea, but close enough.
I wonder what the average citizen thinks of the Office of the Washington State Attorney General wasting somewhere around $1,000 a day to have its staff surf Pushed to Shove?
Yesterday saw a mere 32 sessions from your staff, so maybe there wasn’t much talk around the water-cooler that day and I saved Washington State taxpayers a few hundred bucks.
my regular visitors
No worries, it’s just nice knowing your office is reading and your staffers are my regulars.
Who knows, maybe in time they’ll learn enough about real estate and foreclosure investing to actually have some understanding of the business and appreciation of an investor’s role (and no, I’m not holding my breath).
So, I’ll keep posting and you guys keep right on visiting. I’m sure, given your budget, $1,000 a day is a drop in the bucket.
