    Not normally one for blowing my own trumpet but I have been away from Hubpages for a while due to personal commitments, however upon my return today I discover that I have broken through 100,000 page views and 300 fans.

    This has been done in 8 months and with 34 hubs.  More amazingly, many of my first hubs weren't that good at attracting traffic.  It just goes to show new hubbers that if you stick with it, anything is possible.  If I can do it anyone can!

        Does it look like a mouse?  It's meant to be a squirrel!

    Bristol Boy I still love your avatar and it is definitely a squirrel. It has a certina undefinable panache. I was surprised when you showed your real face that you're so young. Really had this picture in my mind of a distinguished older gentleman.

    Great job BB  People have to realize that when it comes to doing anything online that may result in earning money it will take time.

    That is an awesome accomplishment. Deff shoes that quality of hubs rates higher than quantity. 100,000 page views rocks!
    How many bags of nuts did you have to give away to your little squirrel pals to view your hubs? Just kidding big_smile.
    Seriously. Always good to see someone sharing their success here.
    High five and swish tails to you BB!
