1000 Posts and a Rising star

    I am so so happy right now! My total views have finnally climbed to over 1,000 and one of my Hubs has been selected as a Rising Star. I've been steadily working on improving my Hubs and apparently it is working!
    How excited were you to hit 1,000 views?

      Congratulations, StitchTheDamned!! You are making such fantastic progress. I honestly can't remember when I hit the 1,000 view mark- I'm oddly blind to traffic for the most part- but it is kind of mind boggling when one imagines a crowd of 1,000 people looking at your work... O____O

      Well done!

        Thank you! I didn't expect that many views, really. So it is so exciting. smile

      I would have been excited about 1000 views, but I fear they were all my own.
      How do you become a rising star? It sounds very Disney-like and exciting.

        I don't even know, really. I got an e-mail last week saying that my Hub was nominated.

      I have just recently hit 1000 views past week, and since then I have got another 700 views within one week. It's feels amazing to get first 1000 views as it feels like people are paying attention to what you have to say.

        StitchTheDamnedposted 3 years ago in reply to this

        Oh wow. That is a LOT of views in one week! I completely agree. It does feel so great to know that that many people are interested in my writing.

      Congratulations, StitchTheDamned... progress is what motivates us. You asked: "How excited were you to hit 1,000 views?"

      My reply: When you look back years later, you would be surprised why you were so happy to reach 1,000 views. These days, when I get $3.00 a day from Google AdSense for my own websites, I told my mum, "Only $3.00!". And my mum reminded me how happy I was when I received my first 10 cents from AdSense that I called her on the phone, just to tell her that!

      I have a video on the Bersih rally, a rally calling for free and fair elections in Malaysia. I created the video when the call was made about a month prior to the event. It was a bummer. But just 3 days before the actual event, it was chalking more than 100,000 views a day and in the end, I chalked up more than 400,000 views just from this one video alone. Moral of the story: External events do make a big difference in our page views. It's sometimes a hit and miss.

      "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry into Values" is a 1974 philosophical novel which explores the Metaphysics of Quality. The first of Robert M. Pirsig's texts, the novel entered the Guinness Book of Records for being rejected by 121 publishers, more than any other bestselling book. The book sold 5 million copies worldwide... I will be happy, if I ever publish a book and sell just 5,000 copies, LOL.

        That is interesting to hear your point of view on that. I can see in a few years that 1,000 views seem like nothing. It is so exciting in the beginning though! 400,000 views? Holy crap. I can't even imagine getting that many.
        I will have to look into that book. I love reading and that sounds interesting!

        1. WalterPoon profile image92
          WalterPoonposted 3 years ago in reply to this

          StitchTheDamned, neither do I. Even the organization that taught me video-editing haven't garner that much views for a single video so far! My 2nd highest YouTube video garnered 90,000 odd views... also unexpected.

          Moral of the story is you don't know which hub is going to hit the big time. The more you do, the greater your chance.

          1. StitchTheDamned profile image89
            StitchTheDamnedposted 3 years ago in reply to this

            That is very good advice. You can't bank everything on a single Hub or video. The more there are, the better the chances of hitting a great one. Thank you for the advice!

      I just noticed that the title of this forum post is wrong. It should be "1,000 Page Views and a Rising Star".

    1. StitchTheDamned profile image89
      StitchTheDamnedposted 3 years ago in reply to this

      Thank you! Honestly, I haven't done a whole lot besides writing and sharing the links. I try to write at least one Hub every week. Once I publish it, I share the link on Facebook, Pinterest and Stumbleupon. Honestly, I have gotten very very few views from the external sites. Most of the views have come from Google and Hubpages.

    Spence Baileyposted 3 years ago

    Awesome job! I'm closing in on 100 views as well. I recently ame back to HubPages last week and sadly this week is a bit hectic for me and I have so much on my mind to Hub about!

    I, too, was a Raising Star once. I was surprised, too. Because I was REALLY new when I was picked, I think it was my 6th Hub or something like that.

    Keep up the good work!

    1. StitchTheDamned profile image89
      StitchTheDamnedposted 3 years ago in reply to this

      Thank you! That is definitely good to have a mind full of ideas!
      I suppose that is somewhat the point of it, to pick a very very new Hubber. I was really shocked by it, too. I love writing, but I have never gotten much recognition for it in the past.

      Haha. I bet. I have tried not to focus on the views too much, just because I want to focus on the writing, but I can agree!!

    Congratulation from my side to.
    This is what inspire me to continue with my hubs. I made a pause and hope to be back soon. Also went over 1.000. Unfortunatelly, I wasn't active quite well and I would like to start again.
    Good work and thank you for inspiration!

    Congratulations on this wonderful achievement smile. I also felt really happy when I reached 1,000 views and received the accolade for it. For those that have been here a while and have passed such a milestone many times over, it may not seem like much, but for those who are new here, it can be such a good feeling to see that your hubs have been viewed a thousand times and you know it can't all be your views.

    Congratulations.

    I didn't notice my first 1,000 views, now I get 1000+ most days, which isn't "a lot" in the bigger scheme of things ... There's an accolade/icon when you get to 1,000,000 views; I'm approaching 2,000,000 views and apparently I won't get a new icon, it'll still just say 1,000,000.

    See you in a couple of years when you're back here to tell us about your first 1,000,000.

    All the best!

    Congrats StitchTheDamned! I'm a candidate as a RIsing Star for my Preeclampsia article : hubpages.com/topics/health/2155 . I've been lagging on getting articles out since I recently moved and take care of my newborn, I hope to reach the 1,000 mark sometime soon like you smile  It's cool that Hubpages has the diversity of articles written on here by all the hubbers. I seriously get lost in all the amazingness put out by writers like you and others. Keep up the good work!

    1000 views was a huge milestone for me. It seemed to take forever, but I just kept writing hubs and it happened. Then it seemed that I'd never see 10,000, but I kept going. Then 100,000. And now I know I'll never hit a million smile. Congratulations. Keep on keepin' on.
