Game of Budgets Blog Update – July 2020

Our solid streak of blog views continued in July as we came within 11 of our all time high! It’s the second time we crossed 1,000 views with a big boost from our #FIRE visualization post being highlighted by Personal Finance Blogs @pfinanceblogs. That got us off to a fast start and then we continued to crank out 30 to 40 views a day for the rest of the month.

Twitter on the other hand was a little bit of a disaster this month. My lowest new followers in years and in general a lack of engagement on my part. So the goal this month is to bounce back there.

We’ve already reached our 2019 total views with 5 months to go, so it’s great to continue to see the year over year growth!

Blog Traffic Overview

Blog Traffic Highlights:

  • In total we had 1134 views for the month. We are now up 66% over last year through the first 7 months of the year. This keeps accelerating which is great to see!
  • Visitors also were just off of our record high at 778.
  • Six months in a row above 750!
  • Google Searches continued to be strong at over 600 for the month and only 10 from twitter.
  • Shipt will continue to drive around half of our views. The homepage was strong at over 100 last month.
  • Still not getting many comments, except spam. Trying to figure out how to get rid of that. 🙂

Twitter Results

Twitter was a little embarrassing last month as I just really didn’t have time to focus on it. Minimum tweets, no engagement, which leads to no new followers.

  • Really bad at tweets this month with only 8… Good to see the views hold up without it.
  • Top tweet was highlighting our May update


Hopefully new bloggers find this helpful to see the actual journey of a small blog just trying to get bigger!
