Four Million Views

Four Million ViewsAs of yesterday, the Reading Room passed another one of these silly milestones: four million views (also known as web hits). We got to one million in April of 2014, two million in June of 2015, and three million in July of last year. I haven’t quite managed to turn over a million views in a calendar year, but it’s close. Obviously, if maximizing web hits was my goal in life then I’d write more captions and fewer vignettes and even fewer full-length stories, but let’s face it: that’s not gonna happen. Writers write—at length.

Anyway, roughly once a year I get to throw together a cool celebratory poster, which for some reason (a small narcissistic streak perhaps) I find hugely entertaining. So do touch the icon, pretty please, to see my latest effort. Thanks to the image I created for my first million, I seem to be stuck with the Lady Million perfume motif and the gold color scheme. Ah well, there are worse fates.

  2. Congratulations on another milestone! I celebrated each million up to 5 million, so don’t think you are being cheesy or silly. It’s a big achievement! Many blogs of this type go all ‘gung ho’ then sort of fade away, so your consistent effort and quality need to be recognized now and again. Keep it up sweetie!

    • Thanks, Dee. I know what you mean. Five shmill is definitely worth another cheesy caption, but after that I’m not so sure. Ten mill, of course. Maybe I’ll just make a quick post for each million, without a big splashy image. We’ll see.

  3. Congratulations! I am supremely confident that with your incredible captions you will effortlessly reach 5 million!
    Hugs,

      • lol Sorry, I didn’t mean for it to come out the way it did… I meant effortlessly in that through words of mouth I believe your fantastic stories will draw more and more fans at a rapid rate. 🙂

      • No worries, Jen. I know you didn’t mean anything. It just made me think of Disneyland; the magic seems effortless at times, but behind the scenes there’s a whole lot of hard work going on. More fans/readers would be nice, though. Spread the word! 🙂

A reply would be appreciated, but is not required...
