Some of you may have noticed the shiny new 125X125 ads in my sidebar. They are the result of upgrading my ads system to BuySellAds.com. The website has yet to prove itself (as I’ve just signed up), but looks very promising and takes all of the work out of managing my ads manually. It basically allows to advertisers to purchase an ad through their website which will automatically be shown on my site for 1 month. I’ve set the initial price at $25 to try and attract earlier advertisers. If you’re interested in purchasing an ad spot then simply click on one of the blank ads in my sidebar.
My traffic’s still at 15,000+ uniques per month, and my Alexa has now dropped to 160k. However, I also realize that I’ve neglected the blog a little in recent weeks. I say ‘neglect’, but as you all know I’ve been hectically busy with final exams. Thankfully these are nearly over, and with summer starting I’ll be able to update the blog regularly and see traffic levels creep up above 20k per month again! Either way it’s pretty great value for advertisers!
More updates will be posted soon, but I can tell you that DiscoverUnsigned.com is getting a complete facelift for the June debut album launch. I’m quite excited about this as I’ve rethought the website/business plan and it should be a whole lot better.
PSDFan.com is coming soon (I just need to design it!). I really can’t wait to launch this project as I predict big things for it. I’ve actually challenged Michael Dunlop (from Retireat21.com) to a little contest. He owns his own tutorials/webmaster website called WebDesignDev.com. You may remember that I wrote a tutorial for him a few weeks ago. Anyway, we’ve agreed to compete against each other as motivation to who can grow their site bigger. I realize that his site has search rankings that are years old, and is achieving nearly 1000 uniques per day already. However, I’m confident that I can grow psdfan past this point as soon as I’m on summer!
Other than that in the works I have a turnkey website, a Wordpress themes shop with a difference, a coding tutorials site, and a lot of offline events to do with Discover Unsigned. As you can see it’s going to be a busy summer, especially combining these projects with my web design work which I’m planning on dedicating myself too also.
Check back soon for updates, and wish me luck for my final exam :).
