Site Net Worth - September 2021
Calculating our site net worth every month is fun. I enjoy reviewing progress and correcting course to ensure we are making progress toward our goals (hint: its making personal finance easier to understand, learning about new products, and making a little money in the process).
Overall, we made some progress and learned quite a lot in September. We are a bit light on content these days, but soon enough that will turn around. We saw large progress in overall sight traffic, now we just need to keep people within the ecosystem and collect a few more email addresses.
Check out all our progress from September and if you want to take a look at our year in review, check it out here.
