This is not going to be a regular occurrence — I promise — but I was again shocked when I checked my blog readership for the past week. (You may recall that the prior weeks’ numbers hit record highs and I pondered aloud if increased blog readership had causality with renewed optimism for our economic future).
This week, five of my seven blogs/newsfeeds posted all time record highs, with the total for all seven surging 32% past last week’s record — and double the average for the past two years. This blog led the charge with a record 1,150 readers for the week. (Tell that to my bride who wondered if anyone besides family would read this blog.)
At the same time, it is interesting to note that I received my retirement account statement last week, which showed a nice increase for the first time in many months.
I’ll let you decide if there is a connection, but regardless, I am excited about both!
