Oh blimey, 10,000,000 ..... hadn't even thought about it. I think my 2,000,000 was a bit like the Mayan Calendar.... it just stopped. My mind hadn't thought beyond the fact that this year, at some point, it'll drag itself past the 2,000,000. I hope I forget and it happens, because the alternative is that I sit and watch it, with matchsticks holding my eyes open for the final 4 days
No you don't you're wonderful. I wish I was you. I wish I could write (and draw), just like you ..... in a non-stalker-way.
Seriously, you're probably one of THE most talented people in England, the UK, the WORLD!!!
SRSLY. You've just not been discovered yet - or maybe you have. Maybe you're some mega-star, taking time out to shoot the breeze, doodle round your fag packet and scribble some hubs between international jet-setting.
Yeah..... I bet that's it. Secret Millionaire type of stuff.
You should come and "see us" .... you know where. There's a special thread just for our little gaggle of good people.
No idea what you did previous times to get banned.... must have been really naughty. Anyway - the site was sold, so new probably uber-managers - if you don't get in a ruck with people then they won't notice you're about.
No, but I do know it wasn't a lot. I found/joined hubs and wrote something. It was pretty dire.... and I think I wrote about 2 more. Then I left.
And several months later I noticed some bits and pieces of Adsense earnings appearing in my Adsense account..... so I took a closer look .... and wrote a few more .... and the money grew.....
Now, I've got other things to do usually, so I tend to turn up, write a bunch of stuff for a week, then disappear for months. But Hubpages has consistently earnt me good money for my effort. Some take me under an hour, some take me 6 hours to write. But I will say that I have had one that has earnt me a month's 'salary' on its own (wish they all did that).
I don't have some magical big other website where thousands of people on a mailing list are waiting by their Inbox, or on Twitter, or Facebook for my next writing ..... I've not over-promoted at all. Just bumbled along. I did share a few on Facebook, but nobody's really following me there as I don't really like/use it.
I represent "hope" for all those that think stuff can't happen .... just write stuff .... and stuff happens.
I realize that this number is not considered as particularly high especially after writing here for over a year and having close to 50 hubs. Yet I feel it is an accomplishment, at least for me. We all have...
Yippee, I just checked into My Account and realised that some time in the last 24 hours I hit 3,000,000 views. In fact I am now at over 3,002,000. Traffic is still slower than usual because of Pandas etc or it would...
A couple years ago in 2011, I had a hub on another account that went up to 5000 views rapidly. Eventually it waned to about 1000-1300 views. Now after a couple years it gets about a few hundred views a day...
