Ten Thousand Page Views

10,000 Page Views


Ten Thousand Pages Views

When I started on HubPages almost four months ago I had modest goals. Write! Then write more!! Then learn how toput codes on my pages. The read others work. Then I had to register with google Adsense, Amazon which I am still not clear in and then a whole bunch more writing and I had to learn more about the technical aspects of writing for HubPages and I am still not god at that either.

But I set goals for myself. One goals was write 30 hubs in 30 days. No problem. Then it was to answer a 100 questions which I did. Then I wanted to get to a thousand page views and that happened as well. Then I wanted to make it to 100 hubs in few months which I did as well. Then I wanted to complete what I considered a years worth of work on the HubPages by publishes 3 articles a week for 52 weeks of the years which was 156 hubs. I made that goal as well. Luckily I have a 100 followers which surprised me as I write on such diverse topics I wouldn't expect to have regular readers. But it was a real pleasant and humbling surprise and I am so grateful. It wasn't a goal I thought I would attain for some time, The next goal was that I hope for 10,000 page views. I am almost there.

Recent events have transpired and i spend a great deal of my time working on other things right now so I will not be able to complete the challenge of writing a 100 hubs in 30 days. Although I am not ruling out that challenge later when things calm down.

How Does 10,000 Views Feel?

Itis an incredibly humbling experience. I am merely trying to write something worthy of your time, attention and interest. To write something that inspires, amuses or entertains you or even perhaps educates you but I am not that pretentious. I am only the medium and the 10,000 views is a gift from all of you and for that I am entirely grateful. I keep teling everyone I am going to take a break. But I am continually encouraged and inspired to provide the HubPages with new interesting material each and everyday.

So I feel like the first 10,000 views are a gift from you my readers and I hope to give back to you as much as you have given to me.

Hi Trsmd,

I a sure this isn't a big deal for other people to get 10,000 page views in 4 motnhs but I didn't think I could write 30 articles in 30 days. I am certain that if I was SEO I would have a lot more pages views but I am still new and haven't learned that yet.

Thanks for reading, reviewing and providing feedback.

Hi dallas93444,

It is people like you that keep me publishing everyday. Thank you!!

I have no idea what a Hubnugget award I am guessing it is something good?

Thank you again.

JT, I am happy for you, but I have to tell you something. I have over 18,000viewers on oe Hub, and almost 60,000 total. Most are from Google.

The secret to this, it is due to my articles on sex. H

HI Harvey,

Checked your profile, hahaha!!! You are very funny. I don't think I could write about sex as it would more than likely get flagged for sexual content. But if i get really desperate I will consider it. Thanks for stopping by reading, commenting and making me laugh. I always enjoy hearing from you. You put a smile on my face the virtuous way.

Hello! Your hubs were very helpful to me as a new hubber. I think I will be taking some of the challenges you proposed if my schedule lets me do so :)

Hello JT,

Wow, this is an amazing achievement to have written so many hubs in just eleven months.

I read your profile that you are an author of children's books amongst other things.

I have written childrens books also and have had three actually published and I feel very happy about this.

I suffer from a terminal illness and I found the friendship and support that i received from the writers of the hubs as well as the hubs themselves has made such a difference to my life.

I am in awe of what you have achieved with your hubs so far and I wish you all the best with your hubs in the future. I am looking forward to reading more of your hubs. I would like to be a follower of yours J.T

Best of Luck in the future Beautbabe.

Hi Pam,

It would both a priviledge and an honor to be followed and to follow. It wasn't the goal to write so much...it just happened. HP is addictive in a positive way. And yes, I find our connection to fellow writers most comforting as well.

Thank you for your comment and I look forward to reading you work in the future.
