December: gross revenue bounced back to $1,468 (up 36%). Traffic was up 16% and ARPU was up 13%. Traffic started picking up midway through the month and it looks like I'm flirting with the first page again on some of my top performing keywords.
2019: looks like I'll close out my first full year just shy of $15k net income. I put all of that towards the line of credit I used to purchase the site, which ended 2019 with a balance around $90k. It was a bit of a rough year, but I learned a ton and I'm pretty optimistic going into 2020!
