On Monday, we had one of our biggest days ever, with 60,587 hits and 40, 642 unique visitors! That is absolutely incredible traffic for this site which averages ~8,000 hits and 4,000 unique visitors a day lately. In fact, it may be one of the biggest days ever on this site.
Yesterday was also very good, with 21,349 hits and 13, 509 visitors.
The whole reason was this post. It has not yet been picked up by the MSM, but it is all over Facebook. I think on the big day, I got ~40,000 hits from Facebook.
The income coming into this site has also been very good in recent days. The past two months I made ~$1,000 of the site in addition to my normal income of ~$1,000. $$2,000/month is more than I have made in a long time. You would have to go back to 1989-1990 and adjust for inflation. This month should be quite a bit better. So the decision to monetize the site appeared to be a good one. For those of you thinking of making money off the Internet, keep in mind that I have been running this site for I believe 12 years, four years on Blogger until I was banned from Blogger and eight years on WordPress so far. So it took me 12 years to build up to this point. A warning in case you are thinking this can be done in the wink of an eyes and a fortnight.
I would like to thank all my Delphi donators in the private forum for all their help. They are helping me to survive in life without having to borrow regularly from those close to me. So far, most all of the money has gone for car repairs which have totaled ~$3,000 this year so far. The large figure is because my car engine blew up recently after 228,000 miles. I do not think I caused it. I think it just blew from time and mileage. But hey, car repairs are a necessity too you know. You pretty much need a vehicle in the US nowadays.
