First 30 Days - Blog Metrics

I launched Goodness Determined on November 2nd as my personal blog, as well as the place where all will be revealed in reference to What Happened to IMU? (More revelations coming soon) On Friday, we eclipsed the 30 day mark and are beyond pleased with the response that we’ve received from our visitors and readers. One of our goals is to be very open and transparent about the development of Goodness Determined, as we look forward to sharing insights and data to keep you in the loop. The more you know, the more you will understand what’s going on. Here’s a look at our first 30 days and some of the key metrics we are taking a look at to determine success:
