Okay, it’s time to move on to the next project in my quest to have a six-figure income through websites and affiliate marketing.
So far I’ve been researching ways to develop Internet traffic through natural ways such as Yahoo and Google search engines, blogging software, and direct links. My sites are slowly improving in traffic flow, but it’s going to take a while at this rate.

After updating my three WordPress websites, one of them today has been reporting back information at StatCounter.
That’s a bit of a relief. Now I know that something is working even though I know for a fact that my website has seen more traffic than what was reported and I still would like to know other critical pieces of information. This is a good start even though it still needs further investigation.
On my quest to get StatCounter working correctly, the best advice I could find was to make sure that my version of WordPress was in fact the most recent version. As you could probably guess, mine was not.
I initially built this website and my two other WordPress ones at the same time and used the same version of WordPress, which at that time was 2.6.3. I had received notices about upgrading to version 2.7 for a while now, but when looking at the documentation to do so it looked more complicated than it was. Rather than risking losing my websites during the upgrading process, I just didn’t upgrade.
To help get a true idea about the traffic patterns for my websites, the other day I registered with a website called StatCounter and added the code to five of my websites including this one.
I like the amount of detail available from clearly seeing things such as visitors’ traffic patterns and the top downloaded files, but for some reason I still cannot get it to work with my WordPress websites.
So last night I was going through my Google Adsense account and seeing how the advertisements were doing.
Overall, my page impressions (advertisements that were actually displayed to website visitors) were fairly high for what I usually see. This past week alone I picked up a strong link for one of my sites and saw a great boost in traffic.
As great as the increase in traffic and exposure was, it sure wasn’t reflected that way in Google Adsense.
As the city of Chicago records its ninth consecutive day of snowfall and faces record low temperatures, you have to wonder about what happened to all of that global warming and climate change talk we heard in the summer and during the presidential campaign.
Chicago isn’t that only city suffering in this recent wave of cold weather. Cities all over the Midwest and soon in the Northeast will be dealing with that snow, ice, and frigid air.
So does this mean that global warming is just something that happens in the summer?
Today’s successful water landing of US Airways flight 1549 shows what skilled airline pilots can do during emergencies. As a result of the pilot’s actions, all 155 passengers and crew members are alive.
This shows exactly why pilots in the U.S. and other major countries are held to such high standards and required to complete training every year (or more frequent depending on the airline). You have to know exactly what you’re doing and how to handle emergencies should one ever occur.
And this flight crew appears to have done a flawless job.
Greetings and welcome to 2009!
I hope everybody out there has had a safe and enjoyable holiday season. Mine was extremely busy and included spending the past week at the Walt Disney World resort in Orlando, Florida.
The past week in Florida was reported to be one of the best weather periods that the area has seen in that time of year for the past ten years. Seeing how nice and warm it was, I can believe that statement. My last times down there in the winter of 2005 and 2006 had one year being warm enough for t-shirts, and the other to be freezing cold and require heavy coats in the middle of the day.
