Reached 50% of my monthly allocated bandwidth

I’m happy to announce that I’ve consumed more than 50% of my monthly allocated bandwidth of 5gb. Here’s my current consumption so far.

3gb of 5gb used bandwidth

  • This only means that I’ve been having a lot more visitors in my blog that resulted into this high bandwidth usage. (You may say that some people might be stealing my bandwidth, but as I checked my logs, the bandwidth usage from
  • I also checked my logs and I’m seeing results in my SEO posts especially Ragnarok which also added to the increased traffic and bandwidth usage.

That’s all for now for my blog updates.

  1. @Marhgil – Thanks! Although switching host will be a problem, it will be for the good of the blog. A lot of it is thanks to you Mr. Pinay $candal. hehe

    @Eli – Just keep on posting more posts, especially for seo purposes.. hehe or maybe your bandwidth allocation is big? 🙂

  2. Eating up bandwidth is a nice problem to have. About the webhost switching, hope you know what you’re doing. Sometimes affects rankings, for multiple reasons – Loading speed, host IP’s and whatnot.

  3. Hi Jehz! Thank you very much for informing me about this. There was a bug in my comments.php.
