I’m starting up this series again (I stopped doing it last summer) to see how my traffic has changed. A lot of things are still the same but Facebook has dropped tremendously. Unfortunately Facebook has made it so blog pages, like mine, are hardly ever visible on news feeds. Poo on Facebook.

Until next month…
