Happy New Year and Happy Anniversary to TDW

2nd anniversaryThis marks the beginning of 2013 and the 2nd anniversary of The Dental Warrior.

This will be my 172nd post, which comes to about 7 posts per month on average.  Believe it or not, when I decided to start this blog, I wondered if I’d have enough to write about.  🙂

I also wondered if anyone would tune in.  While I can’t compare to famous bloggers outside of dentistry, I think…. well… see what you think:

Since Day-1:

Total number of unique visitors:  53,570

Total page views:  131,193

On a monthly basis, the number of visitors has steadily increased.  The current monthly number comes to about 4,400 unique visitors and about 8,000 page views.  So, in the general blogging world, those numbers are not that impressive.  But, my intended audience is a rather small niche.  And, I’m very pleased with my progress.

What’s next?  I plan to keep writing and see where it leads.  The steadily increasing number of visitors is encouraging.  I’d like to do more product reviews, as those seem to be fairly popular.

I’d love to hear your input in the comment section below.  What would you like to see?

I also want to thank all of you for tuning in and joining the conversation.  Happy New Year!  I wish you all greater success in 2013!

  1. Mike, I enjoy this blog very much. Thank you. My favorite was the one about dental school hell. I also like when you blog about new products.

    Congrats on the two years.

    (ps: their are no PS90 anywhere. Dang 5.7 ammo has jumped from 20 bucks for 50 rounds to 50 bucks for 50 rounds. Its nuts!!!!)

    I am so happy I bought ammo and two more rifles after the election. 1000 rounds of .223 are selling for 1000 dollars on gunbroker.

      Yep… things have gone nuts in that realm. A few weeks go I passed on TWO different PS90s (for good prices, too!). I’m laying low through this storm. All will be well in a few months, I predict.

      Happy New Year, Michael!

    Thank you for your inspiring blogs and all the optimism. I am pracitising as a general dentist in South Africa and read your blogs regularly. Keep up the good work and happy new year!

    Congrats on two years. I especially enjoy the gun/personal protection articles. I always get something from them. Then again I always get something from pretty much all your blog posts.

    BTW 5.56/.223 is going for nearly $1/ round too with previously $800 guns going for the $1400-1500 range here in Arkansas! But I’ve heard the ARs in Florida are going for even more than that!

  6. Congratulations! Two years is a long time to be consistently blogging. 🙂 I’d love to hear more about your interaction with the dental community! Once dental school is over, where do you meet colleagues? Where do you pick up cool products/development news?

      I get most of my information online. A great place to go is Dentaltown (www.towniecentral.com). National meetings can be good, too. Dentaltown has an annual meeting in Vegas that is fantastic. There are many others, too. I’m also active locally with continuing education.
