After that I made a few bad decisions with regards to the blog and readership dropped off with the resultant crash in Pageviews. In one week I went from a solid 150/day to just 12. About this time I was readying for my wife's flight over to the USA and, consciously or subconsciously, I just shelved the blog in a fit of depression over what had happened. I spent the last month doing nothing with it but I am ready to pick up the banner again. On a positive note I have page rank now and that is generating some search traffic, however I am still fighting with Entrecard to get my blog listed again. In the meantime, Project (not so) Wonderful has delisted my blog due to low performance.
I'm not giving up on either one, I will e-mail Entrecard every damn day if I that's what it takes to get them to approve my blog again. In the meantime I will get back into the flow of writing articles and eventually, traffic will take care of itself.
