We just joined the 800K club!!

A BIG "Thank You" to everyone that has supported, and continues to support and visit our blog...whether you have been with us from the beginning or you've just recently joined the journey, we would like to thank each and every one of you for your support.  

We started blogging about our frugal family's journey roughly 51 months ago, on March 15, 2014. Our blogging journey started out as a hobby and simply a way to keep on track of our progress. Flash forward 4 years and roughly 8 month later, I am thrilled to announce that because of each and every one of our readers, we just reached yet another milestone.  Sometime towards the end of last year, our blog crossed over the 800K mark! Although we are not as active as we had been during the past, its humbling to see we still have some loyal followers whom continue to click on our posts to see how we are doing on our journey to financial independence. Old or new, we thank each and every one of your for your loyalty and support.    

It took approximately 15 months to reach our first milestone of 100,000 page visits to our blog. The next milestones took:

As you all may or may not already know, we have found a few side hustles that was simply more lucrative than blogging so we decided to switch gears about a year ago. Nevertheless, as of January 1, 2019, our blog had seen a total of 806,618 all time pageviews! 

Since I am somewhat of a stats nerd, below are some additional stats behind our 800,000 visits.

Top Referring Sites
Google searches and internal cross links within our posts play a vital role in our blog traffic. But we also want to recognize and give special thanks to our twitter followers, as well as My Dividend PipelineCaptain Dividend Passive Income Pursuitand Rockstar Finance for the traffic from your respective blogs. Lastly, although not present on the list above, I would like to also thank a few other fellow blogger and friends, Roadmap2RetireDividend Diplomats, and Dividend Hawk for your continued support and friendships.

Also, thanks to all that have tweeted or re-tweeted our posts.  Our additional presence and our followers on Twitter continues to keep our blog relevant. In case you would like to follow us on Twitter, we can be found under: @FrugalFamilyof4.  I'm proud to say that we currently have 1,971 followers on Twitter. That is 119 new followers since our last milestone post on July 9, 2018.

Top Page Views By Countries

We are tremendously grateful that our blog has seemed to have a worldwide presence as evident by the chart above.  However, the top page views to our blog came from the following top four countries: 1) United States leads the pack with 517,068 page views; 2) Germany is in second with 31,435 page views; 3) Russia is third with 29,707 page views; and 4) Canada rounds out the top four with 29,012 page views.  Canada and Russia are neck and neck!  It will be interesting to see if they trade places in the next milestone post.  You'll just have to wait and see. :)

Its fun to look at the stats and maybe even create a little friendly competition with them.  But the reality is, near or far, first or tenth, we truly value each and every reader.  Thank you for visiting!! Our blog and posts received the page views they did because of you (our readers and fellow bloggers).  Thank you for reading and/or sharing our post with others. We truly appreciate each and every one of you for the support!
