2.5 Million views - 1/4 of the way to the next Accolade

    Solarasposted 4 weeks ago

    Over the weekend I reached 2.5 million views, which is 1/4 of the way to the next accolade. It took 3 years to get to the 1 million accolade, and one year, thanks to the niche sites, to add another 1.5 million.

    I think 5 million views should be the next accolade. Any chances of giving us a closer target to help motivate new writing?

      Well done!  Awesome achievement, one which some of us can only dream about.  I definitely think the awards should be brought a lot closer.

      Wow 2.5 million. You are a God! Never mind thanking the millions of readers of your hubpages for their support, what are they to your greatness? Appears they are nothing but a means to your end. I, I, I.

        Readers don't come for 'support', they come for information, which Solaras offers. So enough of the unnecessary sarcasm. You can come back and tell us when your readership reaches this grand total.

          Another egocentric ungracious hubber, not surprised. Seems to me she made a lot of money from what is basically a fan base without whom she'd have made nothing and she doesn't even think to express any gratitude for the readers who made her writing a success while proud to boast and take All the credit. Her comment about Trump reinforces her display of total lack of respect her readers, for people, the people who voted for Trump, the people I'd guess she would join Hillary Clinton in calling them a basket of deplorables.

          It would have been so much nicer if she started the discussion with "I want to thank the readers of my hub pages for putting me over the 2.5 million mark". It's called humility, something you and she know nothing about.

            Oh, Benton, what you did for me; you changed my life, truly. This means so much more to me this time. I don't know why. I think the first time I hardly felt it because it was all so new. I owe a lot to the cast, to my players, to Lindsay and John and Danny and Ed and Amy and my little friends Gennie and Yankton. I owe a lot to my family for holding me together and loving me and having patience with this obsession of me. But I want to say thank you to you. I haven't had an orthodox career and I've wanted more than anything to have your respect. The first time I didn't feel it, but this time I feel it. And I can't deny the fact that you like me. Right now, you like me! Thank you.

            You seem to be unaware how HubPages works. No-one makes money from their 'fan base'. Articles attract readers via search engines by providing information or entertainment. So even if Solaras was to thank her income-producing readers here, none of them would see it anyway. This is a semi-private forum for HP members.

            Not only that, the topic of the thread is about the 'distance' between one accolade and the next.

              Of course that would be your take, ragged, put words in my mouth and raise a straw man, anything to avoid criticism. I said "she made a lot of money from what is basically A fan base (I didn't say her fan base here. pay attention) without whom she'd have made nothing" Call it whatever you want the people reading her articles are why she achieved her goal and so they deserve some thanks but only a self absorbed egocentric like you would ignore that fact. It now sounds like she understands my point, can't say that you understand anything more than how to raise a straw man and how to lead with condescension to any "peon" (in your mind) you want people to believe can't understand the obvious. The ragged edge is an understatement.

                    EDIT: I thought I was replying to Mark's comment, but again my egomania caused me to reply to my own comment.

                Yet if Solaras hadn't written them, there'd be no articles to read. Trust you to denigrate someone's hard work and achievements. We definitely need more like you.

                  Yes but if only a few like you read them, and I'll bet you haven't even, she wouldn't have a thing to brag about and probably be so self centered to cry "Oh woe is me, I have nothing to brag about except I wrote something." It's amazing what lengths people like you ragged will go to avoid conceding defeat. I am not wrong, YOU are.

    Great news! I remember back in the day when you had not even made it up to 1M and were worried about hitting that accolade!
    I doubt that I will hit the 10M accolade until next January, so I too would like to see a 5. It would be good to see a 50,000 and a 500,000 too. Those little accolade bumps mean a lot.

      Solarasposted 3 weeks ago in reply to this

      Absolutely!!  (I have been busy on hiatus lol)  I can remember not being able to imagine 50K much less 5 million views.  I can Imagine 5 million now! More accolades would be encouraging from my point of view.  500K and 5 million are real accomplishments. It seems like a simple piece of code...

        Yeah, and think of those poor souls who have reached 10M. Now they have to wait another 90million to get the next accolade.
        Come on, HP, dont you think they deserve a little better?
