Stats are Dropping

Ever since I started caring about my “stats” which basically, measure how many people are coming to my blog, they have been dropping.  The more I try to improve my blog, the more the drop!  It’s bizarre!

I have a feeling it’s not what I’m writing that’s the problem but something technical.  Yesterday I cleared out all my spam comments.  They are behind the scenes where you guys can’t see them but I guess they can slow your site down.  Hopefully that will help.

If any of you notice anything that is making my site unattractive, will you let me know?  Is it still hard to comment?  Does it take a long time for the site to load?  Does it look funny on your phone?  Is the print too small?  Please let me know what you think.

The better I make this blog, the more people I can reach.  It is very scary for most people when they are considering van living or car living as a survival technique.  I hope to be able to alleviate people’s fears a bit and give them some practical advice.  It will save them time and help them adjust easier to van or car living.  Please help me help the new people, if you can by letting me know how to improve this site.

I think more and more people will be sleeping in their vehicles as time goes on.  On television this morning the “heads” were talking about how we are going to be “free” trading in more and more countries.  This isn’t so good for the working class.  The high end professionals will make more money and the worker bees (who serve the upper class) will make less and less.  This doesn’t bode well.

About Maureen, Living in a Van

I'm a free-sleeper living in a van in the prettiest part of the world. I do this partly due to financial circumstances and partly because I love a good adventure.

    I get it just fine on my phone & I love this blog, you ARE helpful! I feel like I know you. I lived in my van only for a month last year & I kinda liked it too. If mine wasn’t “on it’s last leg’s” ( like yours) I just might be out there with you 😉 thanks for blogging!!

      It’s so nice to hear from you Donna. It helps a LOT to have a good vehicle before starting a van living journey. It also helps to have a good income if you want to have any fun at all and KEEP your car or van running.

        Glad that things are rolling better for U ! Having a steady source of income ( even small ) it makes a difference. Wish things get better yet in the future…

    It is NOT easy to comment on your blog, often times the comments DO NOT go thru

    Pictures are always good. People like them and from what I read you get more forwarding if your post has a picture.

      The only trouble with photos is they slow down your site. Sometime if your site opens too slowly, people will give up and read elsewhere.
