First to say congrats Randy!

Love how you include twitter in your blog stats :)

Now we just need eBay's graph to start looking a little like yours up there.

Thanks Cliff, I also neglected to mention that AdSense revenue was up to about enough each month for a round of golf, so I am making progress.

Teckwave said...

Congrats on the stats.

Round of golf = $50.

Keep doubling each quarter and in 2 years your blog will be making $6,400 per month.

Now that's some golf!

From your mouth to God's ears.

Why am I watching a Honda ad in Portuguese?

Hey! I'll click yours if you click mine.

Way to go my friend. Congratulations

Randy Smythe said...

Henrietta, Google must think I have a lot of Portuguese readers :)


Lisa said...

Awesome, Randy! Congrats. We appreciate you. I hope much success and happiness comes your way!

Hey Randy you know what's funny? If you superimpose a graph of eBay's traffic over the last 3 months with a graph of your traffic over the last 3 months, you get a perfect 'X'


Randy Smythe said...


I must be taking all their traffic. :)

Scott Pooler of the Trading Assistant Journal said...


Naw, you know we are all proud of you Randy!

Keep up the great work, pass on the link-love and never forget us little guys when you have graduated to Blog Stardom!

You Da Man and there aint no 85% missing here!

Stefan said...


That's fine, as long as you don't start charging us a blogging fee, pageview fee, final pageview fee, and comment fee.

Randy Smythe said...


Wow, more good ideas. :)
