My personal blog stats.

This year eransworld had some serious setbacks.  I changed hosts and it killed a lot of my seo and site functionality for  months.  It plagued me for much of the second half of the year.  The other thing that happened is that I had some serious writers block. I didn’t know what to write about and the blog suffered.  I did still improve however.

I posted 79 posts.

Starchild Music

My friend and guitar teachers website did better as well but not as well as we had hoped.  Jon had some serious challenges that prevented us from being more successful.   This year we are going to be hitting it hard and hope for bigger and better success.
