I'm so psyched, it took so long. I think I'll take a screen shot and frame it!
It took 5 years. I came to HP at the end of 2010, in late October. I wrote like crazy all of 2011, but then made my own blog, and also wrote on Wizzley and Infobarrel. Not "putting our eggs in one basket" was the philosophy then. So the majority of my hubs are 4 yrs. old, they are all evergreen. I add one now and then when I have a new interest, but mainly have one niche. I spend most of my writing time on that. I have a good sized online following now, and use my time writing for paying clients. I believe many of them found me at HP. So thanks, HP! It's the best site to help you develop writing skills and has a great community.
Plus about a third of my hubs moved to niche sites, and the views helped me a lot. I do still keep tweaking and correcting my old hubs when I can, but it hasn't been my main focus. I am getting interested in writing fiction now. But I am very grateful to have finally reached this number, and believe the niche site moves were responsible. I will continue to review old hubs, and may delete a few that aren't getting views. Thanks everyone!
You prove that dedication pays off. I am deep in the tweaking and correcting process to my exposure and financial peril, but have unpublished three-quarters of my hubs, only releasing them to the public when I am satisfied they wouldn't totally embarrass me. A long and arguably unproductive process, but one I am committed to nevertheless. I hope the rest of 2016 can be my "writing like crazy" year. Congratulations again!
Congratulations Jean! Well deserved. I have just joined HP and seeing your post is really encouraging and really shows the importance in finding the niche and engaging the community.
It's wonderful to hear about your hard work paying off. Congratulations, you've earned it!
Congratulations, 1,000,000 a wonderful number!
I'm looking forward to my own milestone, it does not come quick or easy, that's for sure! The niche sites seem to have sped up the views of the transferred hubs quite a bit, but all my hubs that stayed on HB are quite dormant...
Good job. I know this means a lot to you as you've said views etc. in the past have not been good. Obviously something has changed! Glad this happened. One million is certainly a worthy number!
Wow that's awesome! I have a long way to go before I catch up to you!
Congrats. I always do a screen shot when I reach a milestone. I don't frame it (at least so far). I just save it to a folder in my computer. Congrats.
Congratulations Jean. I am in so much awe and can absolutely imagine your excitement. That figure is absolutely enormous in any context.
Oh Jean, fantastic news! What a milestone, so happy for you. Congratulations on your hard work finally paying off.
I'm edging up on the number, but I have been here a lot longer than you. I know you have worked very hard to put out quality, interesting articles. Keep it up. Two million is within reach.
Congratulations Jean. That's wonderful news! You should go out and celebrate! You deserve it.
Glenn, I voted for you as Most Helpful Hubber, as you answer all my questions with such patience.
Thanks Jean, I appreciate that. Actually, I felt that Marisa Wright deserved the award. I voted for her as I see her helping everyone all the time with great advice, and she won!
Now ... isn't it a crying shame we don't get paid $1/view
Sorry, I missed this thread, so a late congrats. Let's hope the niche sites have the power to deliver a few million more.
I never thought I'd see the day!
I see many people who did it a lot faster than I did. But I'm patient, and happy I reached a new milestone. I appreciate all of you who haven taken time out of your busy day or night, and written to me. Thank you so much. Sometimes changes seem discouraging, and turn out to be just what you need.

On New Year's Day I acquired my 500th follower. In addition to this, I hope to reach another milestone within the next two weeks - the 500,000th visit to my hubs in 4 years. As far as page visits is concerned my goal now is to double this and reach a million views in the next 2 years. But although...

I am sharing a small victory. I made one million views. It took 157 hubs and and 4 years for me.

I realize that this number is not considered as particularly high especially after writing here for over a year and having close to 50 hubs. Yet I feel it is an accomplishment, at least for me. We all have to determine what makes us feel we have achieved something, independent from...

There's no badge for it, but I hit 5 million views slightly earlier than anticipated. I edited a ton of hubs a few months ago and it really boosted my traffic (plus the niche sites help!)Now on to 10 million views... that'll be how many years?
by Dan Harmon 9 years ago
A long awaited moment - the 10,000 view mark is broken today. It broke hard, too, with at least an extra 100 views. A good day!

What a wonderful surprise I have just had. I have just discovered that my hubs have been viewed a total of 1 million times!
