May 2010 Wrap-Up

by Kay Lynn

Birthday, Anniversary

Another month is done and summer is unofficially here.  Most public schools in our area our out this week and it will really seem like summer no matter what the calendar says.

Two important entities in my life are turning one next month.  My grandson Alex will be celebrating his first birthday and a couple of weeks later is the first anniversary of Bucksome Boomer.  Plans to celebrate are in the works for both.

Spending

We didn’t have any large unexpected expenses last month.  My car tag registration was due but I put 1/12th away every month so that was budgeted.  Medical expenses were higher than planned due my bout with bronchitis but nothing excessive. 

Blog Stats

I had the highest daily number of hits ever last month (222) thanks to a guest post on 5 Ways to Save While Dining Out at The Dollar Stretcher.  Visits for the month were up 27% over April and page views were up 32%.  Thanks to the Yakezie network, my Alexa ranking is at 130,645 today and I started at 448,950 a couple of months ago.

Special thanks to the top referrers last month (excluding social media and search sites):

1. The Dollar Stretcher
2. GraceFUL Retirement
3. The Frugal Girl
4. My Pretty Pennies
5. Credit Card Chaser
6. Wise Bread
7. Financial Samurai
8. Family Balance Sheet
9. No More Spending
10. Yes I am Cheap

  How was your month? I hope you have a moment to reflect on it and share.

Sounds like you had a great month! Ironically, I was opposite, May was a let down for me. Both April and so far this month was/has better (so far).

Nice summary of your site stats! Currently, I don’t calculate that data yet, but it wouldn’t be to difficult, and it’s a nice way to get some feedback!

Congrats!

June’s not keeping up with April but it was too large of an increase to not have a letdown.
