One Million Views - A Tutorial Geek Milestone

While one million views for a website is nothing too special, 10 or 100 million views probably will not come for a very long time (if ever), so I decided I would spend a moment to reflect a bit on my blog and point out some interesting (to me) statistics.


Time:
I started my blog around the end of 2010. It is now the end of 2013. Tutorial Geek is roughly 3 years old.


Viewing Statistics:
After the first few months or so, I began averaging about 1000 view per day. This has not changed much. The average is now probably more like 1200 per day. Weekdays seem to get quite a bit more hits than weekends.

Money:
I have mentioned before in previous blog posts how I don't think blogging full time would be a very profitable. Roughly, every 1000 visitors will get you about $1. That means if you want to blog full time and make at least $20,000/year, you would need to get more than 54,800 visits to your website every day. That is not a small number. The most views I have had in an entire month is far less than that.

Popular Posts:
Originally this blog was designed to help me improve my graphic design skills. It has morphed into various tutorials and information. I have found that the most popular posts are not what are the best, but usually what is most interesting to a broader range of people. Perhaps that is why celebrity blogs do so well.

At any rate, this is mostly just interesting to me. If you are reading this though, thanks for reading my blog! I have enjoyed writing articles for my blog and hope wherever I end up in life, I can always continue to make random tutorials.

About McKay Christensen

After having lived in Oregon, Alaska, and China for the past 10 years doing landscape design and English teaching, I have returned to my home state of Utah and currently work for a growing tech company.

In my free time I enjoy working on my TutorialGeek.net website where I post tutorials and reviews (and anything else I think is geeky) and I also like to write songs for my Super English Kid Youtube channel.

My favorite things to do include anything with my wife and son. Hiking, camping, and photography (or anything else outdoors). Playing Ultimate Frisbee or Ping Pong. Listening to 60s, 70s, or 80s, music. 

Feel free to contact me using my contact page. I would love to hear from any of you!
