    I'm getting excited.  I'm SOOO close to reaching 200,000 total views!

    I remember making the New Year's resolution that I'd like to reach 1 million by the end of the year, and this will be one little step toward reaching that goal!! smile

    Wish me luck!

    Kristen, that is an incredible achievement in only 4 months - may hat's off to you!  May that figure, as well as your 1,000,000 views come quickly.

    200k in 4 months?!  First I congratulate you Kirsten, that is brilliant.

    I am hoping to reach 10k by the time my 4 months is up, but it's going to be a close call.  I may have to do even more forum spammi... I mean contribute more fully to the quality debate than usual.

    Took me a while to get to 300,000 because January was slow but my best hub has reached its potential this weekend and is back upto over a 1000 views a day, so Im getting a few thousand a day, 500,000 will be a nice milestone

    Kristen, in all seriousness, how many hours a day are you spending on your hubs?  Four months?!  That's unbelievable.

    1. KristenGrace profile image60
      KristenGraceposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Seriously, I spend between two to four hours on hubs each day... In the beginning it was MUCH more, but now the number of hours have dwindled down.

      1. shogan profile image83
        shoganposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        Well, you have my utmost respect.  I'm averaging about 3 hubs per week, and that's me pressing for time.  Congrats on your views...that's amazing!  smile

      When I first started here at HP, this milestone seemed so far away, and I learned it just takes (a lot of) hard work.
