I realize that compared to some of the superstars here (hi, Cags!) who are looking at half a million views and upward after a similar amount of time here, this is nothing, but 100K is a milestone for me and it looks like I'll be hitting it before my birthday in February.
I kind of wanted that to be so. I couldn't call it a "goal" because I'm not doing anything to increase traffic other than spewing out the usual nonsense at regular intervals, but still, I wanted to hit that before my birthday and it looks like it will.
Those of you who do that sooner have my slack jawed admiration and those of you who are yet to reach it have my encouragement.
Actually, I just pushed it back a bit. I had 30 or so hubs that never did well and I got sick of watching them get no views month after month, so I zapped 'em. They did add up to a few thousand views though, so now I'm back to being a week away..
Good Boy.. now write a Dorsi doosi like: "Strange UFOs (Unidentified Farting Odors) Have Been Discovered In San Francisco! - Watch the Video!" And you will get 100K views in a day... especially if you name the culprits, link to Cagsil and use the tag HP
Dorsi did a great job on that hub - skeptical but still respectful toward the views of those who think that stuff is real. It's not in me to show respect for stuff like that. I never even would have thought to write about it because of that!
Oh, well, yes. Unlike certain folks who just write a few finely crafted hubs and watch the traffic roll in, I use the "throw it at the wall and see what sticks" approach, eschewing such supposedly valuable artifices such as editing, careful research and the rest.
Now, there is certainly something to be said for a precision rifle shot, but shotguns are loud, messy and you can often hit things you didn't even aim at. In my case, I put aside the shotgun and went with a large cannon filled with grapeshot, some bric a brac I found lying about, all carelessly mixed with small stones and gravel. The charge is my own mixture of home made powder and a large quantity of match heads - it's more fizzle than pow, but it gets the stuff out there.
Well,sort of out there - it was at least pushed out of the muzzle, anyway.
Congratulations Pcumix!! Here I sit with a mere 133 views..lol Although I signed up two years ago I just started becoming active by submitting hubs, reading and commenting on other hubs, ect. I am glad I read your post as it has insired me to continue on.... One day I hope to be as popular as you
Congratulations, that is mighty impressive, i'm still about 30k off of mine :S but it'll get there eventually. That really is an impressive time frame, especially with Panda in that time frame. I'd high five you if i could
Well, we are down to the wire. Sometime over the next few days, I'll be there.
Twenty months to get there is somewhat disappointing to me. There was that six month post-panda traffic flatline, but even with that I'm not entirely happy about taking so long. Still happy to get there, of course.
If I could roll back time, I think I would do some things differently and might have hastened that milestone a little, but maybe not, so who really knows? 'Tis what it is.
Mine won't last. I've been saying unfriendly things about conservatives today - that always seems to knock me down a few days later. Totally coincidentally, of course because when am I *not* saying unfriendly things?
PC, you speak your mind. I respect that. I also enjoy conversations in which the other party disagrees. It helps me to see things through another perspective. Disagreement encourages the search for knowledge.
In no way would I dislike another human being simply for the fact that they have different views of the world.
Well, there are people on your side that I *do* dislike for their views. For example, the hubber who says ocean pollution is unimportant.. I just find it hard to have a pleasant attitude when faced with that kind of ignorance.
Congratulations Pcunix! i have been following you from the moment I knew you existed - on the forums. I miss your hat that told the world you were 'out there' but really pleased to see the 'real you' or the personna you want us to see as the 'real you'. Love your work and watching from afar. All the best for the next 100K
I have been married eight times to the same woman (we are both optimists) and we have no children except for the two who would like to pretend that their father does NOT write embarrassing things on Facebook and other places.
I am deeply religious, 5'7", bald and tragically overweight. However, that bit about my ancestor and the Pcuni is absolute truth. It angers me that some have doubted that.
I usually don't post milestones in the forum, but wanted to share this one with you. Hopefully it will encourage others.I reached 100,000 views sometime in Sept or Oct., 2011 Yesterday or very early this morning I...
Woop, woop . . . I hit another milestone today, 100,000 views to my hubs. Yeaaay! I'm grateful to all of my fellow hubbers who read and share my hubs. But I'm eternally grateful to those who come by way of organic...
I quit publishing a while back after only 12 hubs...but have to admit I am encouraged to keep on going now. And finally starting to see a bit of money coming in too.....( a bit....lol). I was so excited when I started...
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 reached 100,000 views on 35 Hubs. (I only had 2 beginning in May of this year.) So, you can get great traffic from Google on HubPages! I'm happy about the traffic, but I wish the CPM were higher.
