    Well, the frozen traffic stats finally updated and sure enough, the total views jumped to 1,001,487.  Three years to do it, but it's finally here!

      Congrats...Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.

      It's important for people to have such major accomplishments in their dotage.  It makes the golden years more exciting. wink

        Thanks, Melissa - now all we have to do is get that mTurner there, too.

      A BIG CONGRATULATIONS to you!!!!  That's wonderful.  I think 3 years is the magic mark here on HP

      1. wilderness profile image93
        wildernessposted 4 years ago in reply to this

        Thanks, Sarra.  You may be right about the three years - HP has long said it can take 3 years to mature a hub and several of my very early hubs have picked up speed in the last few months after sitting in the doldrums doing nothing for 2 1/2 years.

    Great job, Wilderness! Must have seemed a little frustrating to see those stats stuck for so long when you were on the verge. Yes, you have worked hard.

    1. wilderness profile image93
      wildernessposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      It was horrible, Rochelle - my desk is covered in sweat and I'm a shaking wreck.  I just know that somewhere I have an enemy that snuck into HP and did this to me. big_smile

      But you've got to be getting close yourself.  Here, I'll hold the door for you and PracticalMommy;  shake your hand and welcome you when you come through, too.

        I'm not even 400,000 yet-- ( I should be ashamed at 5 years)  but I have been pretty lazy about it. I'd send you a roll of paper towels for your desk, but I have to earn a few more cents.

        Hey I'm only 1/4 of the way there. I'm sure you can catch me... at current estimates I think it's about 3 years away LOL!

        1. wilderness profile image93
          wildernessposted 4 years ago in reply to this

          LOL  Catch you, with you haveing 2 1/2 times the views?  Unlikely, I fear, and besides - I know you.  A go getter, working hard while I coast along, playing with my grandkids and going camping. 

          No, you'll beat me there, and in less than 3 years I'll warrant, but I'll get there too, one day.

    Congratulations, I am just a few weeks behind you; unless google keeps reducing the views! I should hit my million also during the start of next month... Maybe we should open a club... although I really want to join the 10 million views club..

    Well done again!!

    1. wilderness profile image93
      wildernessposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      Thanks, LeanMan - good to hear you're right behind me.  There have been a couple more that just joined the million club right before us; must be something in the air 'cause it sure isn't google. 

      So maybe we'll both join that 10 M club in another 2 or 3 years.

        I am getting close with all of my other sites... have diversified considerably since I started out here with HP but still find HP to be a good platform and a good contributor to my earnings.
        I really should add a few more hubs here as I have not been doing much over the last year or so!

        1. wilderness profile image93
          wildernessposted 4 years ago in reply to this

          After leaving the AP I slowed down too.  There is more to life than work, and summer is finally here.  I'm going camping, not writing hubs!

    1. wilderness profile image93
      wildernessposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      Thanks, Susana.  It's a great feeling, an acknowledgement that the hard work is paying off, as you well know.  Perhaps the biggest milestone on HP - if you can get 1M views you can get 10M, but when just starting out with 1K views that first million seems an impossible distance away.

      I remember your thread - it's almost as if the beginning of summer is special.  Lot's of us suddenly reaching that number.

        1. wilderness profile image93
          wildernessposted 4 years ago in reply to this

          Unfair!  The older I get the less I like winter.  Give me one or two nice snowfalls, with temperatures in the 60's, and I'm ready for summer again.  Or at least fall or spring.

    Congratulations Wilderness!  That is quite the achievement!  Tell us the secret - how do you get so many views, and how do you get the patience to ride out the roller coaster that is Google?

    1. wilderness profile image93
      wildernessposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      Patience?  That's the easy part.  Right now  I'm in a traffic slump - the third time Google has decided my hubs aren't so great after all.  So I beat on the desk and stamp my feet on the floor.  I cry and I curse Google in a loud voice.

      This I call "patience" (it sounds better than "temper tantrum") and seems about as effective as anything else I do.  smile
