    Very nicely done! Was the traffic boost from your guest post over at GRS consistent throughout the month, or was it a big pop and a slide back to where you were? I’m curious as I’ve never done a guest post, and I’m wondering what the results of it do. And congratulation on being a full member, that great!

      After my GRS post the traffic spiked for about three days, then it fell but not to my normal levels. It was slightly above. Actually, it gave me a good bump and I did not go back to my old levels since.

  10. Today I was going through the comments made to the latest post in Yakezie (I am new to Yakezie) and to me one commentator was really very visible. It were you Aloysa. It showed your genuine interest and that’s why I came to your blog. I am really happy to find your site.

  11. Excellent news – things are starting to fall into place. This will be a big year for you.

  12. Google seems to be nice to now. I’m happy to see that my post brought it traffic! :) and 103% increase?! Holy! Congrats!

  13. Thanks so much for the shout out, friend! :)
