Sir Apfelot's Christmas wishes 2016

The time before Christmas is always a good time to think a little about the past year. Yesterday I was on a winter walk in the forest and thought about what happened to my blog "Sir Apfelot". I also started Sir Apfelot in winter time - back in November 2012. That was a good four years ago, but a lot happened only last year.

What happened in 2016 ...

There are always a few important developments that come up in a year. This is how my blog became in the Appy Geek app addedwhich led to a slight increase in visitors. Another point that has given the blog a bit of a boost is the article frequency, which has been increased a bit so that the weekly newsletter is not always just one post. :)

Another step towards the future was the conversion of the WordPress theme to a responsive design that also looks good on the iPhone and iPad and is pleasant to read. At this point, I would like to thank Holger Lenzdorf, who takes care of my WordPress and, in addition to the beautiful design of the website, also keeps the functionality behind it going!

I also have support from John (1000 thanks for your tireless help!) Who writes one or two articles on the blog and helps me to keep the blog up to date while I take care of my customers NT SEO take care. In addition to blogging, I work as a search engine optimizer for some companies and help position their company websites on Google.

From self-employed SEO to full-time blogger ...

I enjoy my self-employment as SEO, because you practically never stop learning and can work relatively flexibly, but my dream is to earn a living as a blogger "Sir Apfelot". I'm still a long way from that, but thanks to my readers, I'm getting closer and closer to my goal.

Visitor development at Sir Apfelot in the last few months: things are looking up! And in some cases we are already cracking the 2.500 visitors per day mark!

And so we come to the next important change at Sir Apfelot: The readership has grown a lot and I notice that there are some regular readers who keep commenting on articles. I'm really pleased, because what is a blog without a reader? Like a coffee without a coffee drinker or a TouchBar without a finger or an iPhone case without an iPhone - simply totally meaningless!

So let me tell you:

You are the best change!

And in order to appreciate this fact, I would like to use this post to thank you in particular! You are the reason why I enjoy Sir Apfelot so much! Before, when I started blogging, I wrote most of the posts and thought, "Will anyone read this?" ...

Today I see the number of visitors to the old posts and can say: Yes, there is definitely a lot of reading! Some posts have already received over 40.000 views, and thanks to the e-mail newsletter, Twitter and Facebook, new posts quickly have more than 100 views. So I know: there are people who actually "sacrifice" their time and read my lines. And that's why there is also a premiere here at Sir Apfelot: The first thank you and Christmas article that I have ever written! And it is no less than YOU! : D

But now enough of the swollen praise ... to cut a long story short:

I wish you and your loved ones a nice tree festival (there are also people who can't start with Christmas), a few cozy holidays and a happy new year 2017!

Stay healthy, don't get the Christmas flu and enjoy the good time "offline" - at least every now and then! ;-)

I look forward to reading each other again next year!
