    W00t. About blinking time.

    I wonder how much sooner I would've gotten there if I hadn't removed all my old hubs in 2009 or so after the two outbound link limit flagged me as a spammer because of my image credits. (It wasn't until years later that I learned what had tripped the flag. At the time, I had very bad experiences with childish commenters writing random obscenities on hubs about ancient Greek art and myth, and I thought it wasn't worth fighting filters on a platform that wasn't attracting visitors who actually read my articles. I came back and started over in 2011.)

    Interesting note: I screencapped and annotated the above image, then used the forum's image upload button, from an ipad. I appreciate very much that HP is fully tablet-compatible, so we can ditch our laptops and write hubs on trips if we choose.

    ETA: the uploader shrunk the picture. Milestone is 500,095 lifetime visits.

      Congratulations! You have lots of determination to return and start writing again after a rocky start and being away from it for a couple of years. I admire your tenacity and am glad you stuck with it!

    Congratulations, Greekgeek! You're one of my favorite wisdom-imparting hubbers, always offering down-to-earth, commonsense advice. You've helped me and others a lot with your knowledge about how the system works. It's good to see you reach such an important milestone. Woohoo for you! big_smile

    Great milestone. I think that I should say it here that I tried posting an article in 2011 and HubPages straight away declined it. At that time I was a newbie with writing and I never knew why it declined. But now I restarted and I think I'm on the right path. What do you say?

    Congratulations GG and well done for reaching this 'more than well deserved' milestone.
    You are a hubber AND lensmaster with immense knowledge of the ways of article writing, and how to be successful at it, and as such, have learned a lot from you.
