I'm dangerously close to 1200 followers......and half a million pageviews. At the current rate, I'm due to hit it in the next 48 hours. It would mean a lot to me to hit it before Thursday. Just a month or two ago, I was hoping to hit it by my birthday, but I'm going to hit it a month earlier.
The point to this is to wish me luck.....and to convey to others that even though you may have just started with HP and feel that 500,000 views is a million miles away....it comes around quicker than you think.
Keep writing, keep learning, and have fun while doing it.
500,000 page views. Awesome. That does seem far away. You've only been on hubpages six months longer than I and have written twice as many hubs as I. I only have 67,000 page views and 280 followers. You must write on more relevant topics and be friendlier and better lookin' . Congrats.
You know the saying....you throw enough mud against the wall, some of it's gonna stick......that's my motto when it comes to hub writing. I write about things I know and/or interest me. Sometimes, I write a winner and sometimes I don't. Wish all 300 were performing like the top 10 do.
Sorry KC, I already follow you and can't help with the following thing! Congrats on the half million page views though! I'm looking at 200,000 in the next few days and am quite pleased by my progress here! Gotta write more hubs, though!
Congrats KCC, Hey do you want me to make a new persona and then follow you? I could then follow you twice. Just kidding. I am so happy for you. That is a great accomplishment, and wonderful inspiration for the rest of us.
Just checked my pageviews.....it could hit tomorrow, the 26th, but might go into the 27th. It's hard to tell. One of my best performing hubs is a Halloween hub and it's going through the roof right now. However, by Monday it will fall off the face of the earth again. It devasted me last year. I got so caught up in the Halloween frenzy and then watched my numbers tank the next day. I had lots of Christmas hubs, but they just didn't pick up fast enough to take the place of the drop after Halloween. I'm a bit more mentally prepared this year...(I think).....someone may have remind me of this comment next week.
Thank you so much Case1Worker! Congrats on your upcoming milestone. Write the date down and keep track of each 10,000 pageviews. You will be surprised how quickly they come around each time. I have been documenting mine from the beginning.
Wow! Just barely passed 100 followers...love the milestones we can look forward to! I'm glad the monkey is back, as I believe you were my first follower and commenter! Did you do any hubs on your Vegas trip?
MG does have the cutest animatations! Thanks again travlespresso. It looks like I may hit the 500,000 during the night or early tomorrow. Guess it depends on how many non-USA folks find my hubs while I'm sleeping.
lol.......Wordscribe.....that's too cute. My husband and I were discussing the gender of this dancer. He assumed it was male and I assumed it was female. Part of my argument is the wideness of the hips. LOL Not sure I've seen many males that dance that way either. Particularly when she flops her head forward and shimmies a bit. lol
Thank you so much! I remember so vividly being discouraged once upon a time and wondering how on earth I would ever get 10,000 pageviews. Now here I sit with half a million. I'm really grateful to all my followers here at HP and all the internet surfers out in the real world who happen to come across my hubs and give me a minute of their time.
I've had another record-breaking adsense month too. I am thrilled....hence the happy dance.
In the past few days, I got my 100th follower and finally attained 1 million views! It's been hectic writing while also working part-time and being a full-time student, but it's crazy to think so many people have read my silly articles. Here's to many more years.
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...
