Massive Update To Stats Tracking

Well, after a few hours of work I have revamped the way BCC presents its public stats.  You can now see everything from one single, easy location:

Part of what I’ve been working on recently is taxes for 2008.  This required actually paging through and entering my expenses (oh, did I mention it tracks expenses now?), which is going to result in a bit of an earnings restatement for 2008.  I think I have everything but one stray freelancing invoice accounted for now.

Sales for 2008 (less returns): $21,116.65

Expenses for 2008 (excludes taxes): $11,782.62

Profit: $9334

You can see the detailed breakdown here — the big green slice is profit (~45% — a bit lower than I expected).  If you just want to see the relative expense breakdown that is available, too.  Unsurpisingly, my number one cost is advertising — the overwhelming majority of it is Google AdWords but I also paid much smaller amounts Microsoft, Stumbleupon, and a few directories. 

Since I’m using this to generate taxes for my business I included some things for my non-BCC projects which I intend to productize eventually but haven’t gotten around to yet.  Incidentally, expenses before 2008 aren’t totally entered yet, take that data with a grain of salt.  I don’t have easy access to all my old 2006/2007 credit card statements, and don’t even get me started about Paypal.

    Thanks for the post Patrick, very interesting and informative as usual. Have you thought about tracking your time as well? I have a feeling that by now you’ve put in a lot more than 8 days of work 🙂

    It’s still great seeing your data Patrick and a very impressive upward trend on the sales.

    Interesting stuff Patrick, and it’s nice to see that 9.84% of your expenses provide you with fulfillment! I’m thinking that playing with Flash Charts may be giving you some perverse sort of pleasure as well!

    Cool Post. Its interesting to see the stats. I had an issue viewing the graphs with Google Chrome. I’m actually using OFC on a project and I haven’t had any problems with Chrome before. None of the charts show, they all get stuck on the loading data graphic. Not a big deal, it worked fine in FF.
