      Another month has come and gone.  Traffic was a little higher than last month’s traffic.  About halfway through the month, I stopped posting on Saturday and Sunday.  The decision to stop posting over the weekend is not necessarily permanent.  But I’ve appreciated the opportunity to focus more on my family during the weekend and to focus on content quality during the week.  So far, I’ve been happy with the experiment.

      This month’s top post was a guest post by Eileen Knowles (thanks Eileen), and there were two posts from last year.  The first two posts and the eighth post on list drew the most commenter engagement this month.

      Top Commenters:

      At the beginning of the month, I announced that I would be giving away a copy of Wrecked by Jeff Goins to one of the top 10 commenters.  The more frequent commenters had a better chance of winning, and the winner chosen randomly is…#4 Commenter – David (not David Paul Stolpe).  David, you’ll need to send me your contact information, so I can send you the book.  This month, I’ll be giving away a copy of Second Guessing God by Brian Jones to one of the top ten commenters.  Again, the more you comment – the better your chances to win.

      Thanks to each and everyone for reading and for commenting.  I’m looking forward to April with The Stretched Community!
