Despite going on a rather long hiatus over last fall – and even for a couple weeks in January – January ended up being my best month yet, seeing an all time high in monthly visits and AUVs (with the first time over 10,000 AUVs), and a close 2nd behind July 2008 for Page Views. I’m also getting about 3 times as much traffic this January as I was in January of last year.
