Congratulations!! I, myself, am very near reaching 2million views. Hope to reach it by the end of this month (fingers crossed). I would suggest to hold on to HP though, even if just as a memory. Good luck
Well, since you asked ... I think you should celebrate by sending Ahmed a nice fat bonus. Or maybe give him back the account, happy that you've made such a good return on the money you spent buying it. It was only in March last year that he sold it to you, so I'm surprised you're having trouble 'staying motivated'.
I stay in contact with him and I know he is still struggling. Life's tough in Kenya. If you're not happy to give it to him, I'll buy the account from you for the same money you paid Ahmed if you like. I'll just paypal him the earnings each month.
That would be a win all around. You'd have the satisfaction of having made a nice sum, I'd have the ability to help him with money from his own work (instead of mine - yes, I send him gifts to Kenya to help him from time to time), and he'd be able to get regular rewards for his initial hard work.
Might be a good plan. As you can imagine, most of those 2 million views and earnings were actually earned by Ahmed. When I quoted them, I was referencing the account as a whole. Obviously, I have personally only earned the amount since when I purchased the account.
But I'm an attorney and am extremely busy, so perhaps it's not a lack of motivation, but a severe lack of time.
I'd love to talk more about selling the account, though. Let me know what you think.
I want to thank Hubpages for allowing me to publish here. You were my first love for publishing online. I still haven't found another lover like you and can't seem to let you go. With all the arguments and disagreements...
I just realised I'm up to 3,095,000 views. I don't really look at the totals much. It seems like ages ago when I got my 1 million badge. Going at my current rate it'll take about another 11 years to hit the 10 million...
With the event of me approaching 1 million hub views in a few days or so, this gives me the chance to reflect back and see what I did to increase my traffic and revenues through Hubpages.What really started the ball...
