It's been a while....

I know that I have not posted anything in a while, but since getting promoted at work, I have way less downtime on the job, which is when I was doing my posting. In the three weeks since my last post not much has changed as far as the adoption is concerned.

We did get our first "letter count" from the agency. Each month our adoption coordinator emails us how many of our letters ( and by letter, they mean our hard copy of our profile) went out to potential birthparents, and if our profile on the website was "saved" as a favorite. Two of our letters were sent out in June, to birthparents that fit our criteria, and we fit theirs. Since our letters did not arrive at the letter office till June 11th, we don't have a full month to go by. I asked our coordinator if 2 was average, and she said since it was a shorter month for us, it fit in with the average which is like 3-4 letters a month. She also said our web profile was saved as a favorite, which they find doesn't happen all that often. So either one of our family members or friends saved us, or someone found something in our profile that they liked. That did give me a bit of a boost, I must admit, even though still no contact from anyone as of yet.

Another really interesting tool that I have been just facinated with is Google Analytics. Basically you link your website up to it, and then you can go and check on the traffic to your site. It gives reports on what countries and states you have had visitors from, how they were directed to the site, how many visitors by day have gone on your site, how many visitors are new, etc. I really find the whole thing very cool. If you have a business website I think it would be a great tool to use as well.

I hope everyone is doing well. I have also been behind on my blog readings, so I will have to get caught up!

  1. Google analytics is pretty cool, it can be addicting! It's fun thinking about all the different places our baby might come from :)
