Best Of The Year: June 2007

In June I settled down and averaged 1 post a day. It also sent my creativity levels in WordPress to another level as I created my first WordPress theme and saw a increase in traffic from the last month.

There were a total of 31 posts I wrote in June and quite a few of them were quite interesting. Starting June I went eased into blogging and started focusing more on traffic and quality posts.

I also made a lot of friends during this month, many of them are the best in the blogging world. Internet friendship really started to seem interesting to me. Remember I was still trying to plough my way back and this month definitely helped me do that.
