The TIA MYSOA Blog reached over 1,000,000 page views this week. I think it is quite an achievement for an individual simple blog, managed on a part time basis entirely by one person. However, the credit for the growing stats belongs with you the reader. Thank you for your support!

More useless information:
The top referring traffic source is Google. Yet, Google banned this blog from advertising – moments before it was about to reach its payout threshold of R1000-00. After a 1-year long battle with Google I finally gave up trying to get my money from them. Readers can make their own assumptions from this fact, because I’m afraid if I start writing about it, I may just say something that will get this blog banned for good.
The few cent’s income received from other (non-Google) advertisements displayed here is so pathetic - it is not even worth mentioning. Kalahari.com, for example, used to bring in a measly R130 per month, on average. It was this blog’s top affiliate, but since they’ve changed their site to an entirely new design a few months ago, everything is a mess and there’s been no word from them regarding earnings due. They’ve also made it near impossible to find well-researched and well-written material. When you do happen to find them, they’re so ridiculously overpriced that it puts most common folk like us totally off the idea of purchasing it.
On the brighter side of things… On 22 September 2013 this blog was approved by Group6Media to promote their campaigns. Bear in mind that blogs, especially ones like these that criticize the rotten ANC and use politically incorrect terminology, are not easily approved. These adverts earn income on a unique pay per click basis, so by simply clicking on an advert you’ll also be supporting this blog.
