Ok, this month I am no longer reporting Blogger stats as they are provably wrong. All of my Amazon Stats are 0, so I am giving them one more month before dumping the Amazon ads. I will still carry the "Most Favored Products" as that is possibly drumming up activity for other people.

EDIT - One more stat. I hope to get 750 pageviews. I really got 1098, which is a 14% increase over last month. I am really happy with that.

I haven't done any stats for DrivethruRPG ads, but they totally cover my operating costs for a year. At $186 and change for a year's worth of referrals, it doesn't contribute much to my bottom line. Nor does sales on my products, which is about $23 a year. I've had 551 downloads over the same time period, so that works out to 4.1 cents per download. This is pretty great concidering I don't like to host my own stuff.

Now, throwing it back on me. Can I come up with a truly perfect product that I can sell for a specific price? That is my intent by December 2019. If that pans out, I will likely rework many of my prior products, expand on them, and offer them for sale. The originals will still be PWYW, but going forward, I plan to create items of worth (even if lowly worth) and start selling instead of using the tip jar method of PWYW. I will never completely step away from PWYW, but I'd like to have some products with very high production quality in the future. I feel like I am getting there, but still need to refine my work to get there.

Just so the reader is aware, I post on the last day of the month. This means that some stats are low by a few hours. I update them later as the final results are in. For example, in August I said I had 1003 page views. In reality it was 1006. That is too small of a difference to matter, but I did update it. These slight changes are not too offensive to me. The point of this data is so that other bloggers have an idea of where they might be in relation to something or other or me. Sometimes, you aren't as small time as you think, which is awfully good to know.
