700,000 views in 648 days

check out the post below

Before I really begin this piece, I just want to write about how insane my traffic has been in 2016.

  • I have generated 100,000 views in the past 45 days (1 month and 15 days).
  • I have generated 50,000 views in the past week (7 days).
  • I have generated 278,000 views in the first 123 days (5 months and 1 day) of 2016.

Now to put this in really big perspective, I’ll tell you this.

  • It took me 209 days (6 months and 25 days) to hit my first 100,000 views.
  • It took me 104 days (3 months and 12 days) to hit my first 50,000 views.
  • It took me 366 days (1 year and 1 day) to hit my first 250,000 views.

So, If you take in these numbers above, with the numbers above these numbers, 2016 has really been insane. And I’m in complete shock. I don’t know why this is all happening, but it’s amazing. It’s truly a blessing.

I started this website with two real goals in mind and I achieved them both in February of 2015. I hit my first 100,000 views and I started to make money from the blog. After I achieved these things, I felt like I was done. I felt like I had done what I set out to do, but I told myself, I might as well keep going.

So when I hit 100,000 views, I just told myself, alright well, I’ll just try and hit 200,000 views. And then it happened. Then I told myself, I’ll hit 300,000 views and then it happened. And after a while, everything just become second nature. I just kept trying to reach another milestone after another.

And then I hit 400,000 views in December of 2015 and I started to realize what I had built. Because for the longest time, It felt like I was sleeping, but suddenly I woke up and saw that all of my handwork was actually going towards something. I realized that after 400,000 views, I would be hitting 500,000 views. I would be hitting half a million views! This really woke me up.

And I really would have stopped at 100,000 views, but I just felt like I should keep going and thank god for that. And when 2016 started, I didn’t know what to expect. I was nervous. 2015 was so good, I didn’t want it to end. I had finished the year with more traffic than I imagined and hit 400,000 views to end of the year, but then 2016 happened and nothing has been the same since.


I ended up hitting 500,000 views in February. 3 months earlier than I expected.

In January, I generated 39,000 views in 1 day. This record has yet to be broken. And I don’t think it will be, but I hope it will. Also in January I generated 68,000 views which at the time was the most in any month, I’ve ever blogged. So 2016 was already starting off crazy, but It got even more crazy in my birth month. In February, the same month I hit 500,000 views, I generated 90,000 views.

90,000 views in 29 days! This is now my highest generated month to date. Turning 21 never felt so good, but this past March It went back to normal a little and the site hit 30,000 views in the 31 days of March, but that didn’t last long. Because in April, I generated 80,000 views. 80,000 views in 30 days!

And let’s put it this way.

  • It took me 78 days (2 months and 16 days) to hit 30,000 views.
  • It took me 195 days (6 months and 11 days) to hit 80,000 views.
  • It took 205 days (6 months and 21 days) to hit 90,000 views.

Again showing how incredible 2016 has been. I truly never imagined in my wildest dreams that I would have generated all of this the way it has happened, but I’m proud. All of my hard work is going somewhere. It’s amounting to something. Maybe quicker than I imagined, but I’ll take it.

And now I’ve generated 700,000 views in 647 days. It’s insane that I’m writing this because 45 days ago I was writing about hitting 600,000 views. All of this was not in my rough estimate. In the first estimate I showed you, I only gave you 2 predictions, but this photo below has more. And considering what has actually happened, things are insane.

And this is what actually happened.

I mean damn, I thought I was hitting 700,000 views in 2017!

The only prediction that was true was for 400,000 views, but that wasn’t really a far-fetched thing. It was late November of 2015 and I was really close to that number, so I put December of 2015.

All in all, 2016 has been wild. I don’t really know what to say, It’s just insane, but here’s the part where I show you all of my countries and where I get the majority of my traffic from.

Now I may be shocked at all of this success, but I do know one thing and it’s that if you continually work hard, good things will happen. And I have been working hard. I’ve essentially been blogging non-stop since I started this site in late July of 2014. I haven’t really taken breaks.

Now with that all being said, next stop 800k views. And thank you for the click, no words can really say how much I appreciate it.
