    by  • November 19, 2014 • Administrative, Man Behind the Curtain • 0 Comments

    It’s been a little quiet lately with submissions closed. Here are the numbers!

    The Money Aspect

    Amounts in parentheses are losses/expenses.
    Hosting: ($17.06)
    Stories: ($105)
    Art: ($232.73)
    Advertising: ($109.73)
    Payment Processing Fees: ($10.90)
    Printing: ($16.28)
    Donations: $51.00
    Ad Revenue: $0.94
    Book Sales: $61.73
    Total: ($378.03)
    QTD: ($378.03)
    YTD: ($2,643.49)
    All Time: ($10,156.06)

    As per usual, I try to list costs for art and stories under the month that the stories run on the site rather than when I pay them. I also cover Paypal expenses when paying authors and artists.

    Printing costs this month consisted of replacing a couple books for Kickstarter backers that were either mutilated or missing. Sales of That Ain’t Right continue to be pretty strong.

    We were closed to submissions in October, so we remain at at 54.94% for all time.

    Traffic

    October experienced a bit of a drop in traffic. We had a total of 1,065 visits. Our traffic consisted of 658 users and 1,868 page views. Our highest daily traffic was 82.

    This month’s search engine term is “sex xxx vestes”. Because seriously: What does that even mean? What kind of porn did they think they’d find?
