November 2008 was a banner month!
November 2008 was by far the best month that this site has ever had. We had our most visits and page views ever, as well as going over 300,000 page views for the life of the site. Who could have imagined that we would see this much traffic on our lowly little site! Look at the stats and the graph below to see just how much we’ve grown even in the last few months!

Once again, it looks like people want to read about the following topics:
- Getting a stimulus check/”free money”
- Earning extra income
- Controlling spending and reducing debt
Very interesting. I’ll keep this in mind for future posts!
- Cash Crate is still bringing in a ton of revenue for me, I made almost $180 last month using the service. If you haven’t started using the service already, you can learn how to use Cash Crate by clicking here for my step by step guide.
- We’ve been using the envelope system for just over a month now, and it has been amazing how much less we’ve spent in our problem categories (hundreds less, for those of you who want to know). If you want to control your spending in your own problem categories, give it a try!
- We’ve been teaching Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University for several weeks now. It’s been a fun experience, and it’s satisfying to see people improving their situation by using his common sense techniques. Interested in his class? Find a class here or read our post series: Dave Ramsey’s FPU
Stay tuned for more great things in December, and the new year!

Congratulations on a great month! Glad I could contribute some to your numbers. And nice job with CashCrate–it makes for some nice grocery money, or a bonus to your debt snowball, whatever the case may be.
Thanks on the congrats, and for sending traffic my way!
Yeah, the cash crate has done better than I could have imagined. It is now paying for about 1/2 of our grocery bill every month! Not half bad! I’ll bet you’re doing even better, maybe on track to winning the contest they’re running right now?

Congratulations on a great month. I am just starting my blog, and I hope to have the same stats to come. The difficulty is getting users to visit my site on a continuous basis. I try to follow the same guidelines in producing my content, but I don’t know what captures an audience. Hope I crack the code soon! Thanks!
Wow, that is a terrific month. Congratulation Pete.

Great stats and keep up the interesting posts. A number of bloggers have been saying there ad rev has been impacted by the downturn, you noticed anything? (though your traffic increase probably offset any drop).
since the downturn my ad revenue has actually gone up substantially – although it also correlates with when i got ranked #1 for a popular term on google. Who knows, maybe if there wasn’t a downturn, i might be doing better? But then again, people might not be so eager for financial advice if things hadn’t turned sour. It’s hard to say!
