Top Posts For August 2011

I’m a big numbers guy.  When selecting my major for college, I chose Mechanical Engineering, because it had to deal with math and science.  When I run, I am constantly doing math in my head.  So it’s no surprise that I would be tracking different statistics and figures related to my blog.  August was a good month for Jon Stolpe Stretched.  I saw readership grow.  I found a consistent groove for posting worthwhile content.  And I saw community blossom through this on-line connection.  Here are the highlights!

I now have 13 regular subscribers.  If you’d like to become a subscriber, see the “Follow Blog” window on your right.  It’s great to see this starting to take off.

I posted 23 times, and my posts were limited to weekdays this month.  Despite posting four less times this month than in July, I saw the most monthly traffic to the blog so far.

Thank you to all of you for reading and contributing to the blog and to the reader community.  I’ve grown a lot through this experience.

As always, I love to share other’s “stretching” stories on my blog, so leave me a comment if you’re interested in being a guest blogger on Jon Stolpe Stretched.

Finally, if you’re a blogger, how did your blog to this month?  What was your top post?  What was your favorite post?
