January was much better in terms of traffic, here’s some of the posts that contributed to the above stats

I love it when the figures are all green. It means I’m making progress!!! I did create a number of posts in January, one or two attracted quite a bit of attention.

No More WordPress Theme Or Plugin List Posts & Other News:- This post gathered the most attention. I basically tell it like it is. Anyone who knows me, is well aware of that fact.

I actually went through and deleted all my list posts, as I am fed up with doing them and they serve no purpose. The blog post covers that here.

Checathlon WordPress Theme Review:- Here I reviewed a pretty darn awesome them by Foxland. It’s in-depth as I often go down the rabbit hole. It’s had great feedback for being honest, despite being a paid for review. Take a look here.

4 Real World WordPress Theme List Post Examples & Why They Suck:- I suppose I was on a rampage in January calling it like I see it as per usual. However this post did get quite a lot of attention and led to the spike in traffic shown in Jan’s stats.

January was good for me. I have found writing from the heart is more fruitful then just writing round up posts for search engines. In-depth quality articles that challenge perception or indeed start dialogue are the way to go.

I must admit, I absolutely love reviewing WordPress products, moving forward WPin will focus more on this by offering handy reviews to help you find the right theme or plugin for your needs.
