Last March 14, 2013. I changed how my email subscription widget looks like. Actually, I just edited the message and the option to show the number of subscribers. During that time, I decided to change the message for the convenience of those who will join my giveaway, and that time I only have 10 email subscribers. That was my reason for changing the message. But at the end of the giveaway, none of my email subscribers came from the giveaway when I checked the entries. After I few weeks, I noticed a sudden increase of my email subscribers. From 10, there are now 387 subscribers from the time I am writing this post (April 4, 2013) Wow. Amazing. So you really can’t gain subscribers from the giveaway, in the end they will just opt out or most of the time skip the step. People will subscribe to your posts if they really want to receive updates from you. I don’t mean to brag, but these subscribers are all organic. They are real subscribers since before you get to receive updates, you must click a confirmation link that will be sent to you when you subscribe. Right now, I am truly grateful to those who subscribed at their own discretion. If you are one of the subscribers and you are reading this, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
- A few word changes in a sentence is powerful.
- Gaining organic subscribers is overwhelming.
- Gaining email subscribers thru giveaways is not a good idea.
I am really overwhelmed by the number of my email subscribers right now. Thank you my dearest readers! You continue to inspire me to write because of you guys. I also want to take the opportunity to share to you my newest blog, The Lifestyle Avenue. I hope you guys will visit and support my new blog too! Again, thank you for supporting I AM LOVED.
This is just a quick post to update my readers about my blog’s annual report. I just saw the email today from WordPress.Com (I use the JetPack widget) about my annual report. And so I decided to post about this, not to brag but to inform my readers and attract clients as well. :51:
So I will just quote the report here. :110: Thank you everyone forgiving me a good stats for the year 2012! Hope this year, my blog will surpass last year’s stats! :googlyeyes:

Sept. 11, 2012 I started to have a mobile version for my site http://athenatria.com. I figured that since nowadays a lot of people use their smartphones to surf the internet it might be a great help to my readers to have a mobile version and to attract readers as well. Me as well often view my site using my phone and launching a mobile site for my site is indeed one of the best improvements I did for my site. Currently the design is really plain but when I get the chance I will change some of the colors and styles in the mobile site. But at the moment, I really want to let my readers know about my mobile site and to encourage them as well to check out my site even when on mobile. I think its pretty cool to have a mobile site version for blogs nowadays since surfing on mobile is really common. Blackberrys, iPhones, iPads, iPods, Android, and other mobile handsets can now easily view my site. You can either turn it on or off if you want to view the destop view or the mobile view of my site, just look for the switch at the footer. It’s also a lot easier to comment on the posts when viewing the mobile version. Having a mobile site is part of my plan on the big change I have for my site. So keep posted I might have this big change on my site soon.
