Congratulations to me! In under a year I have gotten 10 & 2.
I reckon I must of had some help from little angels.
I am a happy hubber.
I, as I write am passing a ten thousand view mark and a two thousand comment mark. (I know billybuc does that daily) It is a big deal for me.Congratulations to me. The 10 and the two mean that I can do it, and from my very slow start mean I can do better and in another year try to make money here and more importantly have the credibility to be listened too by you.
To date I basically do not rely on SEO, Keyword, social networking or any linking or promotional type things. My website lays dormant and my blog is not moving at all. So I have reached this landmark in my writing just by actual intent oriented content.
From what I get --- most my traffic is hubbers. Not so good for revenue I suppose.
Oh do not get me wrong, if you type in Ericdierker into a google search, last count there were ten pages. And I did declare I would pronounce and establish that kind of presence. I do declare that also a vehicle.
But I have been travelling and living this whacko world since before most you readers had flown on a big jet airplane. So I knew one thing here. Shake hands with your neighbors and associate with experts in the area of study and work that you desire.
Here it took time just like anywhere else. Perhaps a little faster because we get to the heart of the matter and seldom just wave. My physical neighbors have taken 3 years to know. Here about 3 months. 200+ of them is overwhelming but they are not a needy lot. The pros stand out and adopt you or shun you.
Some things have no business being important
And so after all the friends have left .......
Those that are true stand by. Half those that do not have issues of their own, and the other half have issues with me. I never met a person I could not find something to like about, but I have met plenty where the issue was not reciprocal.
And so I sing a "happy birthday" to me. No one to celebrate with for it is all in my head.
Now about that head, it is a better place to be than it was a year ago. At least my insanity is shared with others and that is the first step to acceptance. I am afraid it is time to give back and commercialize. But I gave my self a year for that also.
So I will just keep adding content. Keep speaking my heart and slowly start to monetize. I kind of figure I owe it to others and to HP. I drive traffic and could drive a lot more. Maybe if I get good I can do some good.
