My first half-year of blogging

I started Polliesdividend blog in June 2014 after being inspired by some of the many great personal finance blogs out there that chronicled their individual journeys to financial independence and retirement. I wanted to share my journey to hopefully inspire others and also to track my progress towards my ultimate goal of financial independence.

A little more than 6 months on the way, I must admit I really like blogging! It is a good way to share knowledge and it helps me in my decision-making. And of course to sometimes clear my head πŸ˜‰ The downside is that it takes more time than I original thought ;-( . But the positive side wins with a landslide!

But before I deluge you with numbers, I would like to thank all the other bloggers who have helped grow my blog and make it what it is today. Thank you!

Today’s blog post will highlight a few milestones for the site.

Page views: more than 7,900
Average view per day: 42 (and still rising πŸ˜‰ )
Blog post: 34
