JLP’s Weekly Roundup XL

This week’s weekly roundup was brought to you by the sweet sounds of Bill Evans. Anyone who knows me knows I LOVE music, especially jazz music. Anyway, something I’m going to start doing with my Friday roundups is highlighting a particular artist that I listen to while putting the roundup together. If you’re not familiar with Bill Evans, you need to check him out. Although he has been dead since 1980, his music and influence still lives on.

  1. JLP. thanks for the answer. I thought you bought traffic based on the ‘unknown referrals’ on your traffic counter along with a lot of hits recently from Stumble Upon, which is a pay for traffic site. Please pardon my wrong assumptions. Great blog by the way, I’ve been a reader for a while. I have a commercial/industrial site and don’t want to disclose its identity since I’m exploring how to generate more traffic to it.

  2. Dave,

    No problem. Stumble Upon does have a pay-for-traffic feature, but I don’t use it. Those referrals are from people who have stumbled across my blog.

    Keep in mind that I have been blogging for 2 1/2 years. In fact, I should have a heck of a lot more traffic than I have.
