From 10,000 views till now, I have had a note on my iPhone that has been my journey guide. A few milestones ago, I showed it. Here it is again. This is why every single milestone I reach, I put how many days.
This is what I told myself
10,000 views = 37 days
20,000 views = 74 days
30,000 views = 111 days
40,000 views = 148 days
50,000 views = 185 days
60,000 views = 222 days
70,000 views = 259 days
80,000 views = 296 days
90,000 views = 333 days
100,000 views = 370
This is what really happened
10,000 views = 34 days
20,000 views = 60 days
30,000 views = 78 days
40,000 views = 86 days
50,000 views = 104 days
60,000 views = 133 days
70,000 views = 160 days
80,000 views = 195 days
90,000 views = 205 days
100,000 views = 209 days
Even though, I’ve been doing this alone for 6 months and 25 days. 6 months and 25 days would be the 209 days. I’ve actually asked for help. Just nobody really wants to help. Then I thought to myself, do I really need help? If the numbers are any indiction of needing help, I don’t really need it.
I could say this or that is the reason I made my website, but honestly this journey didn’t start in July 2014. This honestly goes back all the way in 2012. In the fall of 2012, I started writing my novella or novel. That was the first time I put anything into my writing. Then, I stopped writing and wrote only a little here and there.
Then in fall 2013, I started designing some shirts which was actually pretty fun. I quickly got bored with that though. Fast forward spring 2014, I started making crappy music on garage band. That was hilarious and fun too. It felt like I was trying to be creative in like everything. Then in the summer of 2014, Brazil lost 7-1.
I was depressed out of my mind. After starting a novella, designing shirts, making crappy music, I created a website. Even though, I always stopped what I was doing in the past, the website was different. I was obsessed the moment I made it and I was successful the moment I made it too.
Though in November, there was a moment where i felt like I lost interest in my website. I wrote a piece called losing interest in my life talk section. Then in the fall of 2014, I started making song mixes. Which was incredibly fun and I still like doing that here and there, but I stopped doing a lot of them.
So here is the timeline of all of these things.
Fall 2012 – Novel
Fall 2013 – TrueUpNorth Designing
Spring 2014 – Music On Garageband
Summer 2014 – The Website
Fall 2014 – Designing/Printing Kidfromthe6ix Shirt
Fall 2014 – Song Mixes
It’s actually pretty crazy, but since 2012, i’ve been building myself up for this website. I read Perks Of Being A Wallflower and that made want to write a novel. The designing from Fall 2013 helped me learn and understand how to design my kidfromthe6ix shirt. The music on Garageband helped me make song mixes. The website is just life.
Everything, I’ve seen in life is my website. Though, I’m not going to sit and lie and not say, I know exactly where the root of my website comes from because I know. I’m not going to say it though, but I know. Either way, it’s been a journey. It’s been a really long journey.
I don’t know what I’m going to do now. There’s a lot ahead right now. There’s a lot of things that I’m going to need to do. 25 days after, I made my website, I told myself that this really was never supposed to become something. I have a lot of notes on my iPhone because that’s where most of my ideas and thoughts go.
In the past 6 months, almost 7 months, I guess I wish other people kind of cared about the website like I do. People probably think running this website is really easy, but it’s not. It’s actually stressful. Every single time, I reach a new millstone, people only say congrats or whatever. It’s not like that’s incredible or wow.
I wish I had someone else working with, but honestly I don’t trust anyone. I’ve done so much alone that I’ve grown accustomed to celebrating alone. It’s lonely, I guess, but honestly that’s how it has to be. I like writing alone, I’m not a fan of group projects of assignments in school, so its better this way.
I can write for every section. I’ve been doing it all this time, so if I find someone who can help me. They are going to have to bring a skill that, I don’t have. Not saying I posses a lot of skills, I’m just looking for different.
Here is the final country stats for 100,000 views.

Only One Writer.
I’ve always believed in myself when It came to my writing. The grammar and the punctuation has always been important, but I’ve always known that If I just had an editor, I would be solid. When people tell me my writing sucks, of course that hurts to hear. That’s something that makes me not want to write.
I probably feel the most discouraged about my writing in school. I’ve never gotten incredibly high English marks, but i’ve always known that I’m a good writer regardless. There isn’t another milestone after this really. 110,000 views isn’t much of a milestone. I guess the journey starts again towards the goal of 200,000 views, but honestly it isn’t even about that anymore.
I had a dream and I achieved that by reaching 100,000 views by myself and I did it. Not only did I do it, I did it in quicker time than I even imagined. Will advertisements comes? Will I go that route to make some money? Will I try to market my website out of the internet? Will I actually try to find writers? Who knows right now.
I just know that the potential of this website is high and I’ve known that since day 1 and that’s word to my iPhone notes. I had 10,000 views knowing I was going to reach 100,000 views.
I’m going to take some serious time thinking about what I’m going do, but just know that doesn’t mean I’m going to stop writing. I’m going to continue to post like i’ve always had, but I need a plan now. Regardless of what, I’m going do with this website, there’s one clear thing.
WE MADE IT
