  3. Congrats Rob. I’ve only been blogging since Sept 2017 and understand the slow churn upwards. You show nice steady growth. Thanks for sharing your thoughts about it. I would love to do a blogroll swap with you. Please visit and let me know if you will add me in and I will do the same for your site. Again, Congrats. 1 year is a great accomplishment. Tom

  4. Congrats on completing 1-Year. Your growth has been phenomenal. I use blogger and I don’t get as many plugins as WordPress :(. I wish I had Yoast. Getting Google rank is really difficult. I earned a few dollars with ad sense. Was fortunate that some users clicked on my advertisements :-). Nicely done sir.

      Hey geek

      Thanks. Interesting I thought blogger.mighr be easier with seo since its google isnt it? Blogspot seems neat with their feed of recent blogger posts. I guess theres some advantages to each. Yeah some ppl click some ads but not too many.
      All the best man

    Congrats Rob! One year is a great milestone, and that steady growth in your traffic is fantastic!
    Must admit I’m not even thinking about search engine stuff or earning a single dollar from the site in the near future – just having good fun already getting it up and running! Hope you keep that momentum going through 2018!

      hey Frankie, well your doing a good job. I like your site. Maybe in time you will think of seo and ad sense or whatever. At the start there’s definitely a learning curve. One thing at a time. Thanks for the comments

  6. Congrats on the anniversary Rob. I enjoyed following your journey and looking forward to continuing to do so. Like you, I love the community and reading about other people’s journey towards financial independence. Kind of addicting actually. But congrats!

  7. Congrats on your 1 year blog-versary, Rob! Thanks for sharing your progress as there is definitely a lot of great information in this post. I believe I was roughly around the same for page views after the first year. You’re doing fantastic with comments though. And awesome work with Google Adsense! I have yet to get paid anything from adsense because I haven’t reached the $100 threshold. Also, thanks for sharing about the backup and Ssl plugins. I don’t have that lock in my web address, but maybe I should look into that if it helps with search. Best of luck with your 2nd year of blogging! Keep it up!

      Hey reverse

      Thanks alot. Glad to hear you got something from this post. I was debating adding the plugins, but i always wonder what plugins other sites are using. Especially when I was looking into backups and security. If it helps someone thats what its all about!
      Cheers and good luck implementing ssl!

  8. Hey Rob,
    congrats to your ONE-year anniversary and success with your blog!! – I know absolutely what you’re talking about. Sharing the journey to FI with a supporting community helps in many ways.

    The DGI community is really special. By reading these blogs there is so much to gain and learn from fellow bloggers (who often act like real professionals) …Your blog definitely belongs in that category!! – My blog is online since April 2017 and the support from all over the world was overwhelming.

    Keep it up,
    Greets to Canada!


  9. Congrats on the one year! Just hit mine a few months ago as well. The blog is coming along nicely. I like seeing the new features you add. Nice to see you on Twitter as well. I agree, it seems to be the best for engagement within the community. Looks like everything just keeps going up. Traffic, dividend income, etc. Keep up the great work! Here’s to an even better second year!

    Welcome to the one year old club. It’s a great accomplishment considering most bloggers quit blogging around six months. Great job of making $120 on Google Adsense. That’s 10 time more than me. If you want to get even more traffic, get on Pinterest. After two months of joining Pinterest, it’s brought me more traffic to my site than search engine, Facebook and Twitter combined. Oh yeah, I use Tailwind to automate my post. Let me know if you are joining, I can refer you and we both get a month for free ????
