Welcome to the Challenge!

All this talk about your theme is weird for me because when I joined the Challenge in early January I had the exact same theme. We must have similar personalities if we were both drawn to it.

I changed mine shortly after joining because it was pretty tough to make minor tweaks to the CSS stylesheet and if you moved one element, it messed up another. I just couldn't get it perfect so I gave up.

I found the one I'm using now by Googling "best minimalist wordpress templates" or something like that. After reading a bunch of stuff on Social Triggers about optimizing layout, simplicity, fewer choices, I made the plunge.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if I can help you in any way.

I joined the challenge 3-4 days after starting my blog, so I don't think you're early…relatively speaking.  Welcome to the challenge!

Haha, I was probably in the millions when I joined as well. Welcome to the challenge! Interesting rough theme on the site too — it's kind of neat.

And did you customize the share bar to the theme? It looks great and fits in well.

Thanks @MoneyIsTheRoot – I am thinking of how I can make it look more professional. Are there any customisable templates you can suggest?

There are so many, what you have is fine right now!  I would just start churning out the quality content, and wait on changing anything…it looks great!

Hey everyone.

All the support has been great so far. I have switched the blog to a more minimalist-type template – what are everyone's thoughts?

I am down to 2.25 million on the ranking!! I am happy with the progress so far and people are starting to get involved in some discussion which excites me.

Can anyone give some idea of what is 'fair' and 'good' visitors per day? I have been blogging for just over a month and have an average of 35 unique visitors per day – thoughts?

Welcome to the challenge! I was overwhelmed when I first joined in late November, but quickly became followers of other blogs and joined a team, and now I feel pretty well entrenched! And my alexa rating has gone down from 1,000,000+ to under 100K : )
