    I just want to thank the HubPages community. Today I reached a very cool milestone. The hubs I have written have been read 100,000+ (100,200 to be exact)! This is very exciting for me as when I started to write in this magical world of words, 100K, well, it just seemed so unattainable.
    I am honored to write among the likes of each of you!

      It really is and I am so happy to be on board! I must add a personal thank you to you wavegirl22, your help during the 60 day challenge was amazing, making a huge difference in how I create hubs now. The challenge was the best thing I could have done to improve hubtivity!

    Great job!  As I tell everyone, write the date down.  Keep track of each 10,000 or 100,000, whatever denomination you want, but you'll be amazed at how quickly they roll around from now on.  I too, remember the day that I though 10,000 was unimaginable, much less 100,000.  Now, 2 yrs later, I just passed 500,000.  I've been tracking every 10,000 up until 500,000.  Now, I'm only going to track every 100,000.

    Keep up the good work and again, congrats!

    Great achievement in short period time. These kind of thread really encourage the patience of new hubbers.

    K9 do you have any success stories?

    1. K9keystrokes profile image92
      K9keystrokesposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      TopUniverse~ Thank you for the congrats. You ask if I have any success stories, well it just so happens that I do. A few months ago a 60 day challenge came up and I decided to jump on board and see if I could manage the dedication and team work aspect of the task. The team each wrote 30 hubs in 30 days, and then the second half of the task was to market the hubs from the first half. Well, I had no idea all of the things I was about to learn and manage all as a challenge team member. I saw my numbers rise almost immediately and that was exciting!
      I learned how to use rss feeds properly, how to use SheToldMe.com as a sharing tool, I learned about better lay-outs for the hubs I did write and how to backlink and find really superior keywords. All just because I joined a challenge! And believe me, it was a challenge.
      I am not real tech savvy, but with the help of those who are (wavegirl22, shazewellyn, Dobsoon, Pamela99, MoneyGlitch, Patty Inglish, MS, and of course Sunforged who started the challenge) far more savvy then am I, I found I had a path and a plan to follow. They were each supportive in their own way and made a huge difference in my 60 day experience, whether they know it or not.
      The biggest success I have found is with one of my hubs that has gotten seriously popular with the college age group and that has not hurt the numbers one bit!
      The biggest thing I think is to write every single day. Even if it just a new hub title, write it and things will go googly good! I am starting to see revenue from my efforts as well, and that's simply amazing to me!
      It is all because of this generous and intelligent community called HubPages! And I really am grateful for every one of you.

      Thank you kidgas, i am very happy that this happened. I was finding myself getting a bit discouraged as time went on. But, after the 60 day challenge 2, I found my leggs again, and had such wonderful motivation from some very savvy hubbers that changed everything. I learned loads! I think that is the most important thing I did in the quest for 100K. I soooo apprecite the comment.
