Break Time with My 5-Year-Old

Why I Removed Google Analytics from My Blog

I will no longer look at charts like this for this blog!

Last night I was complaining to my wife about my blog.

“I’m frustrated Babe,” I said as I was brushing my teethe.

And even though I told myself I’m not going to worry about how many readers I have for the first year of blogging I can’t help it.

I can’t help but think, Man, I post something on here every single day and I feel like I should have more traffic by now.

In the last 30 days I’ve only had 141 sessions.

There was a $3,500 Sales Funnel (landing pages + emails) I sold to a new client from the U.K. Then I sold another $3,750 Sales Funnel to an existing client. And then a $1,700 job to write some JV emails for a new client.
