    Have been waiting to hit 5 million for a while, and today the views finally clicked over to 5,001,113 big_smile

    Unfortunately, there's no accolade for 5 million, but there really should be! It's a bloody long wait from 1 to 10 million.

      Susana S, Congratulations on reaching this fabulous number of views. It is absolutely inspiring to hear of your success. I agree that it's a long, long time between accolades at that point. Wow. Thanks for sharing your amazing accomplishment and for giving the rest of us hope to do the same.

      All of these figures are overwhelming. I'm just a little shy of 7,300 and I've been writing at Hub Pages for nearly two years. A million a year?

      I guess I'm writing about the wrong things, but I can only be me.

      Congratulations! Congratulations! Yeah! Rah! Rah! Rah! ***

      Absolutely fabulous achievement Susana, you should be feeling extremely chuffed!!
      I only wish that HP had a 'like' button, similar to Facebook. Am sure that you would get close to a million likes just for this motivating post alone! wink
      Well done you!!

    That is definitely a chuff-worthy accomplishment.  Congratulations! 
    I have a whopping 471 (the 1 is important when the total number is so wee) views of which I'm guessing approximately 97.83% are mine.  Most of which occurred when I was taking the long way around to the editing page.  5m is a very very long way off but thank you for showing it's possible.

    1. Susana S profile image91
      Susana Sposted 3 years ago in reply to this

      Thanks smile Your writing skills are much, much better than mine so if you learn a bit about how to target the right topics and audiences I'm sure you can outdo me! It does take patience and perseverance but if you've got those things there's nothing to hold you back.

      Loving chuff-worthy, that will be my phrase of the day big_smile

    Congratulations & well earned - 5 years is a long time! I am halfway to 100,000 so will gradually, slowly be following in your wise footsteps...

    1. Susana S profile image91
      Susana Sposted 3 years ago in reply to this

      Good luck with it! The best thing is that over the last 2-3 years it has truly been passive income. Long may it continue I say smile

        Suzanne Dayposted 3 years ago in reply to this

        Agreed! The longer they age, the better it seems to get. I have my original 10 articles from 3 years ago and they have progressed nicely, even though they are yukky articles - will have to fix them up!

        CMHypnoposted 3 years ago in reply to this

        Lol Susanna, 5,000,000 views is one big impressive brain.  You write articles people want to read,  answer their questions and fulfil their needs.  It takes a lot of ancient dead people to beat that! smile

    Wow, that is absolutely amazing Susana! 5 million can only be achieved by the masters so you should be so chuffed. Well done, that is truly inspirational. That is a great motivation for me, I am trying my best to get the 100,000 accolade, should get it by May/June. You should make a hub on some of your tips and knowledge, 5 million views makes you one of the elite here on HP. Congrats again. smile

    1. Susana S profile image91
      Susana Sposted 3 years ago in reply to this

      I'm sure you'll get there Suzi - you are definitely on the right track anyway!

      I so want to write a hub with all the tips I've learned the hard way....it's just finding the time. I am not a fast writer and with a little baby to look after as well I end up prioritising other things when I'm online. But I will make a concerted effort to write that hub this year ok? Promise!

    This is a chuff:

    http://corvidcorner.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/Pyrrhocorax_pyrrhocorax_-standing-8.jpg

    In the Home Counties it might be called a 'chough', of course.

    Both chuff and chough will peck out your eyes if your are feeling below par.

    I realise that I am more orc than elf.
