Have you gone on a road trip and your here the kids or other passengers ask, “Are we there yet?” and you reply, “We are half way there.”  Today for those participating in the April Ultimate Blog Challenge, we are HALF WAY THERE!!  Yes, we are 15 days into the challenge and I must say I started out in slow speed. I have been able to write one blog each day even though some days were way late in the evening. I prefer to post my blogs early but with a full-time job that’s not always possible.  But I’m determined to get through the monthly challenge and in 15 days I can say I completed the April Blog Challenge!

I enjoy reconnecting with bloggers from the past challenges but also meeting new ones and I have met some wonderful new to me bloggers.


I like to track my status through out the month and this chart shows my stats when I started at the beginning of the month.  I started the month with 44,262 views on my blog.


As of today, April 15th, I checked my blog stats and I have a total of 45,807 views which will jump a bit by the end of today.   Thanks to all my blogging friends who have read my blog during this challenge, I have received 1545 views for the first half of the April Ultimate Blog Challenge.

My most viewed blog was the one I wrote late on April 13th and had 125 views that evening. The following day I had 293 more views so for two days I received 418 views on the following blog: http://themarthareview.com/dont-fall-for-free-laptop-offer/

  1. That pretty good Martha. I don’t really keep track of mine because I have not been writing that much lately. I will have to do it and see what happens.

    It’s interesting to see the difference of views from a regular month to a challenge month Brenda. It also makes a good blog topic to get my blog for the day! LOL Thanks for visiting, have a great weekend.

    I really wanted to start this challenge, but forgot to sign up for it, so I am just posting when I am able to now.
    I can totally relate with you about not being able to keep up when you have a full time job. I have three or four posts going simultaneously, but have no time to complete them.

    Sorry you missed the sign up but glad to see you’re posting when you can! Family and jobs have a way of coming first but I do enjoy these challenges to keep me on my toes! July will be the next challenge so put your thinking cap on for that! LOL Thanks for stopping by Sumudu

    I enjoy challenges in blogging, work and life in general. I have a very positive attitude and I’m trying hard to stay on the challenge track LadyInRead! I’m excited to try a mango too! Thanks for the great blog about them .

    That’s great Jenn! I love challenges of all kinds but the Ultimate Blag Challenge is a great way to meet new bloggers and re-connect with “old” one. Thanks for stopping by!
