One million unique visitors by June 2007

Ok, I’m getting serious about this blogging thing, and I’m thinking bigger. Way bigger. The quantum leap from local teacher/coach reaching hundreds of clients/students to a blogger reaching and providing value to potentially millions of readers is, well, quantum! But that’s just what I’m doing. It’s stepping out of a big cushy comfort zone and into a whole new realm.

I know from experience that making a jump like that all in one step is difficult and can be dangerous to your health. So instead of taking one giant leap, I’m going to make it in a set of smaller yet still significant steps.

My intention is to double the number of unique visitors to this Evolving Times blog every month until I reach one million visitors. If my calculations are correct, given my starting point of 1000 (1017 to be exact) visitors in August, by doubling the visitors each month, by June of 2007 I will have 1,024,000, give or take a few thousand!

On the first day of each month I’ll post a screenshot of my visitor stats from the previous month. I’ll also periodically write posts about the specific marketing tools I’m using to generate the monthly doubling as well as the specific Law of Attraction techniques I’m using. I’ll let you know what’s working and what isn’t working so well.

I’m also very open to your input and suggestions. If you notice something I’m not doing that could expand my readership, or if you see something I am doing that is potentially decreasing my readership, please let me know.

I’m thrilled about this experiment in attraction and hope that you’ll follow along over the next few months to see how I’m doing.

Here are my visitor stats for August.

      3. Evolving Times » Tomorrow is the Big Day: Blog Stats Check For October on October 31st, 2006 4:59 pm

        […] To recap, I set the intention to double the unique visitors each month until hitting one-million unique visitors. I did not hit the doubling mark in September. Unique visitors went from 1017 in August to around 1450 in Septembet. Almost a 50% increase but not the 100% increase I’m looking for. […]
