Here at Mizozo, every time we break a new personal record for viewership we get excited. As yesterday's single article record was broken (fastest to 100,000 page views), we immediately call one another and brag about how well Mizozo is doing and how quickly its growing. Yesterday we broke another record, highest number of visitors (as per Google Analytics) in a single day.
According to Google Analytics, yesterday we saw about 83k visitors and 100k page views. Our previous day record was 80k visitors, but with 115k page views. While most of the team members were incredibly excited about this news, I was a bit more frustrated. The fact is, our server was so over strained during much of the day that in all likelihood our visitor count would have likely been double if we had a faster server, or better yet more efficient code.
Luckily, Mizozo 2.0 is almost ready for release. As bugs are being flushed out, we are prepping everything and are cautious as to the outcome. I expect that we will quickly begin breaking more and more records, but that isn't necessarily going to be the case.
The reason for this post isn't actually to brag about our accomplishments, even though that's what I have been doing thus far. The real point is a cry for help. We need able bodied people to assist us in growing faster. Of course, we are always in need of more publishers, so joining Mizozo's ranks on that end is incredibly important. However, we are also in need of SEO, Site Content and server management. The list of our needs far exceed our ability. All of us here at Mizozo have real jobs and many of us families, so our time is generally of short supply. We are always grateful when people post new articles, and expect our revolutionary business model to attract substantially more (once the profit sharing goes into effect on January 1st, 2013).
But, if you have ability beyond writing articles, we would love to hear from you. Please either post a comment, or write to us directly at email@example.com.
