My Blog Passed 10,000 Views

As I looked for a picture to show my excitement, I really couldn't find one even close to this one of LMFAO's Redfoo.

As I looked for a picture to show my excitement, I really couldn’t find one even close to this one of LMFAO’s Redfoo.

I’m usually not one to brag about milestones, but this is a big one for me.

I hit 10,000 views! My blog has been going for about 11 months and although I don’t know the speed a blog “should” hit this benchmark, it is still exciting to me.

I would like to thank you, the readers, for reading my material. I know I write about a fairly broad topic, sometimes about public relations, sometimes about social media, other times about blogging. I’m aware that not every post applies to you and I’m glad you keep coming back and reading my new material. My goal is to teach you something new, while teaching it to myself as well. I hope I have been successful.

More than anything, I am appreciative about the feedback I have received. I can’t stress it enough that every like and comment brightens my day. Those are the things that show me blogging is worth it. No matter how tough work gets or how busy I can be, I have always tried to keep blogging regularly. I have had stretches of three or more posts where there were no likes or anything. It is disheartening. Now that I have switched to this topic, I have noticed an increase in feedback and I hope I can motivate you to keep it coming.

I blog for you as much as I blog for myself. So many of you are awesome, genuine people and I’m glad to have met you. Thanks again for trusting in me to deliver good content. It drives me to be better and I am extremely grateful.

Keep blogging, everyone. I want you to hit this milestone too, as well as even bigger ones that make this look like nothing.

How close are you to your personal goal in blogging? Let me know! Or if you have a different comment, let me know that too!

  1. Congratulations on your milestone. I’m sure there are lots more ahead for you from the great posts you write. My blog is fairly new, but I’m giddy over the 100+ views so far. Can’t imagine reaching 10,000. Hope you add some zero’s to the end of that number soon.

    • As you keep making more posts, the average views per day will keep rising. What is 2 views per day will become 20, then 40, and so on. It takes time and effort, but it will happen. Like I tell everyone, sharing on social media helps. I prefer Twitter and StumbleUpon. Also, using great keywords as tags helps get people to your posts too.

  2. Awesome! Big congrats! I got all excited when I reached 100 followers the other week. LOL I’ve now got 161 and have 3698 views with regular blogging since May. I have no idea if they are good stats either. I’d like to think I can get to 1000 followers but have no idea if that is really that realistic. LOL I think next goal might be 500 though. See how that goes. I have noticed the follows increase more rapidly as I’m expanding networks…the more blogs I follow and comment on etc. The awards posts also really help.

    • It’s almost like with real life. The more people you interact with, the more people you meet through them. When you comment on other people’s pages, their followers will come across it and maybe decide to give you a chance. People deny that blogs are social media, but I argue that blogs were the FIRST social media. Everyone has their own views, however. Congrats on your success! I’ve found that the average number of readers tends to go up regularly creating somewhat of a snowball effect. The hard work does pay off.

  3. Congrats! Like you, it brightens my day too when somebody takes the time to “like” or comment on a post I’ve written. It’s especially fun when I can get a discussion going among readers, where people from all over the world read the post, look at the previous comments and add their own points of view. It’s a great way to learn from each other.

    I hope to get to 1,000 followers one day. Almost there…..

  4. Congratulations, I got a notification that I reached 100 followers yesterday. That was pretty cool. It is nice to get a good response when you put your thoughts out into the world. It is also really great just to meet new people and discover common interests.
    Happy Blogging, I love your content and look forward to new postings.

  5. Congrats! I have been blogging for a year now but still wasn’t able to read that milestone.well I am not THAT active but will definitely to be more now.

    I love you site! :) Look forward for more postings from you.

  6. You are an inspiration to many who are just starting out in social media. Congrats on your milestone and thanks for stopping by our class blog! (LA)

  7. Marty, this is awesome! Congrats hun! I agree with what you said above about engaging with readers. It’s hard sometimes juggling it all… I just returned from that press trip and I wrote stories for 4 days straight! I had to take the day off from writing just for PR. Now I’m back on the story wagon… 6 more to go lol.

    Happy for you :-)
