I’m a huge fan of self-fulfilling prophecies or simply just a fan of throwing things into the air and hoping for the best. When I tweeted that, I had actually had only 207,000 views and about 436 post published. I knew that i would definately reach 500 posts because posting isn’t difficult, but generating 43,000 views in 46 days is far from easy.

When, I generate a thousand views in a day I think of that as a huge accomplishment. I’m blessed to say it happens a lot, but it’s a hard number to hit every single day when you don’t post everyday or you don’t post a lot in a given day. I was thinking at that time, I tweeted that… that generating 43,000 views in 46 days would be more than a thousand views a day. I’m the only person who runs this website, but I thought why not try to reach a huge milestone before the one year.

If there’s something glaring that i’ve learned running this website it’s that life is unpredictable. Last year, I wanted 100,000 views in my first year. I thought that would be almost impossible and people told me that too, but I just kept working everyday. Knowing that I reached that goal in half of a year and generating almost double that in a full year is mind blowing to me.

Something that I watch often that captures how I feel is Drake’s video of him receiving the grammy award at his home. Most of the video is just him being happy and goofing off, but nearing the end of the video around the 4:00 mark, it gets good.

Drake talks about how he told himself this would all happen for him and then it all actually happened for him. Essentially what I’m talking about with self-fulfilling prophecy. Just everything he says after the 4:00 mark is how I feel about my website. To a certain extent, of course.

A lot of people can say how arrogant he is or how he’s not humble, but watching that video shows who he actually is. Just as reading my writing, especially my life talk section shows you who I am or my milestone posts, but people might see me talking about my stats and think I’m cocky about that, but that’s wrong, That probably annoys me more than anything. Just not being completely understood. And then what I say somehow gets misconstrued.

This is a thing about a lot of people. They will have an idea of who they think somebody is. This person might not show any signs of how the person thinks of them, but if there is one little crack or one little mis-step, people will come out of the woodwork. I’ve learned to just ignore everything, keep working, writing and that’s it. People can sometimes be nothing, but distractions. Since this is a special milestone, I’ll show you the countries and where i get the majority of my views from.

Majority Of My Views

So there you have it. USA is holding me down and I get all of my views from people googling various things. And trust me, the things people Google are hilarious. I can see what people Google to find my website. It’s always incredible when someone google’s these types of things and are re-directed to my life talk sections or my inspiration posts.

Overall though, It’s been a crazy for year for my website. I don’t know what this new year will entail, but if I’ve learned anything it’s that It won’t be something I can really predict, but here’s hoping for the best. Since, my first ever post after my introduction post was about music, here’s a song you should check out. It’s lit.

Next stop 300k.
