Our expenses increased some because we are growing which is awesome! Our cost for our email list also increased because we now have more than 2,000 people on our email list which is great! We switched out hosting service which I think most of you will notice the site has became much faster. We think this will bring a better experience to our users and keep them watching longer! This almost doubled our expense for hosting but we think it is worth it!

What we did in March
We got a list of backlinks for lesfeldick.org and are reaching out to people who link to that website to see if they would be interested in linking to our site as well. We got one backlink out of 4 contacts we made.
What we have planned for the rest of 2016
We have been looking at ways to increase traffic and one of those is called backlinks. What is a backlink you might be asking. A backlink is when someone puts a link to your website on their website. The more backlinks a website has the more authority Google thinks your site has.
I will be sending out an email in April asking for everyone who has a blog to write a short review and put a link to our site in their review.
