    ... well, not quite yet, but I will pass that this year.

    It's incredible really .... for whatever reason, 2,000,000 pairs of eyeballs will have popped by one of my little scribblings before the end of this year.

    Like little worker ants.... tirelessly, 24/7.

    Bless them.

      However you've done this, your a legend! I haven't even thought to get that many views.

        And, just to give out some hope to anybody reading this ..... I didn't even actually try.  Ergo, it's possible for anybody to do it just by hanging around and writing hubs every now and again.

        Write it and they will come. 

        I just brain dump really, rather than writing.

    I've been here for 10 months, and I'm only just shy of the 10,000 views mark.

    Here's hoping that the ants will multiply like well ..............ants and you will hot 10,000,000 quite soon!

      Oh blimey, 10,000,000 ..... hadn't even thought about it.  I think my 2,000,000 was a bit like the Mayan Calendar.... it just stopped.  My mind hadn't thought beyond the fact that this year, at some point, it'll drag itself past the 2,000,000.  I hope I forget and it happens, because the alternative is that I sit and watch it, with matchsticks holding my eyes open for the final 4 days smile

    Pretty neat, earner.  Don't you wish there was an accolade somewhere between 1 and 10 million? 

    I'm coming up on just 1 million myself, sometime in the next month or three.  Far behind you, but a major milestone nevertheless.

      You mean there's not? That's outrageous.  They should mark every 1,000,000.

      I might have to write a 2,000,000 word hub of complaint about that!

    Congrats earner!  I am slightly behind that figure but in my defence I only write crap.

    Love, M.

      No you don't you're wonderful.  I wish I was you.  I wish I could write (and draw), just like you ..... in a non-stalker-way.

      Seriously, you're probably one of THE most talented people in England, the UK, the WORLD!!!

      SRSLY.  You've just not been discovered yet - or maybe you have.  Maybe you're some mega-star, taking time out to shoot the breeze, doodle round your fag packet and scribble some hubs between international jet-setting.

      Yeah..... I bet that's it.  Secret Millionaire type of stuff.

      *waves*.

      You should come and "see us" .... you know where.  There's a special thread just for our little gaggle of good people.

        Aaarrrggghhh - praise.  Thanks PN!  That Secret Millionaire thing - love it.

        Jeez.  My head will explode if I ever break two dollars a day.

        Edit:  Other place.  I know.  I'm just not sure about returning like some sort of prodigious son.  As soon as I say "hi" they'll ban me anyway.

          earnerposted 8 years agoin reply to this

          No they won't ... surely not! 

          No idea what you did previous times to get banned.... must have been really naughty.  Anyway - the site was sold, so new probably uber-managers - if you don't get in a ruck with people then they won't notice you're about.

    Do you remember how many you had first five days you started? smile

    1. earner profile image82
      earnerposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      No, but I do know it wasn't a lot.  I found/joined hubs and wrote something.  It was pretty dire.... and I think I wrote about 2 more.  Then I left.

      And several months later I noticed some bits and pieces of Adsense earnings appearing in my Adsense account..... so I took a closer look .... and wrote a few more .... and the money grew.....

      Now, I've got other things to do usually, so I tend to turn up, write a bunch of stuff for a week, then disappear for months.  But Hubpages has consistently earnt me good money for my effort.  Some take me under an hour, some take me 6 hours to write.  But I will say that I have had one that has earnt me a month's 'salary' on its own (wish they all did that).

      I don't have some magical big other website where thousands of people on a mailing list are waiting by their Inbox, or on Twitter, or Facebook for my next writing ..... I've not over-promoted at all.  Just bumbled along.  I did share a few on Facebook, but nobody's really following me there as I don't really like/use it.

      I represent "hope" for all those that think stuff can't happen .... just write stuff .... and stuff happens.

        Anyway i will use some help from twitter since I already have an account with a 1000 followers. My goal is 2k daily, hope to acheive it till the end of this year.

          Oh, if you've 1000 followers it'll be a doddle!
