WOOHOO! We just joined the 1,000,000 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 72 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 6 years and roughly 1 month later, I am thrilled to announce that because of each and every one of our readers, we just reached yet another milestone.  Just yesterday, our blog crossed over the 1 MILLION page visits mark! Although we are not as active as we had been during the past, it's humbling to see we still have some loyal followers who 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 you 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 were simply more lucrative than blogging so we decided to switch gears about two and a half years ago. As a result, the last 100,000 page visits took the longest at 10 months and 15 days. Nevertheless, as of Friday-April 24, 2020, I am elated to announce that our blog had seen a total of 1,002,933 all-time pageviews! What a milestone. 

Since I am somewhat of a stats nerd, below are some additional stats behind our 1,000,000 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 bloggers 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 active and relevant.

Wow...What a drop from 2nd to 3rd! I'm thinking we might need to bring back the Collection of Stock Analyses!? What do you all think?

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 was the clear leader with 604,448 page views; 2) An Unknown Region was in second with 68,620 page views; 3) Germany was in third with 38,141 page views; 4) Russia rounds out the top four with 36,598 page views.  

The Unknown Region had previously jumped three spots to be in second on our last milestone post. It looks like they continue to distance themselves from the pack and they now hold a solid position in second place. And Canada and Russia were previously neck and neck but it looks like my Russian readers have helped distance themselves from my Canadian readers.  It will be interesting to see if my Canadian Readers can reduce the gap by 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! Now into the next 1 MILLION page views!!
