Today marks the one month anniversary of frugaling.org. I started this site on May 4th, 2013, as the dusk days of the spring semester wrapped up. Trapped in my head over the current debt and the grandest questions about finances, I established this to be an avenue for education and self-reflection.
I was the sole visitor on May 4th. Over the course of this first month there were over 8000+ visitors like you. People checked out the site from a variety of countries: Canada, UK, Germany, and Australia (to name a few). Nearly 12,000 pageviews were recognized, which suggests that some visitors looked at other pages.
Alexa.com, which is a public, “web information company” that tracks the popularity of websites, ranks frugaling.org in the top 5 million of websites worldwide and top 500,000 in the United States.
From being the sole visitor to 8,000, it’s been clear that what most people tend to appreciate are long, informative posts that provide a unique spin on a contentious or common issue. For the next couple months, I aim to diversify the audience, deepen the quality of articles, and propose some new perspectives to tackling the debt (car, credit, or student loans) while becoming a frugal person.
I’m deeply humbled by the amount of people that have visited the site, left comments, and wrote to me in this first month.
