10,000 Subscribers! A Thank You Note


This website has hit 10,000 subscribers. This is pretty exciting stuff for me. I want to thank each and every one of you for subscribing and reading. I have heard from many of you who say that you visit on a regular basis to check out new articles. It is a motivation to produce ongoing material as often as possible.

I thought it might be fun to share some of the stats of this website. I’m a stats junkie, but if you aren’t, no worries. Since starting in the summer of 2014, this website has seen over 154,000 visitors and over 360,000 page views.

At last count, it has 722 posts, across different categories like quotes, interviews, publishing news, book reviews, and of course, writing tips posts.

The most popular day of the week for readers of this website is Monday (interestingly enough) at 21% of views, and the most popular time of day for the week is 1pm (10% of views).

The top 7 countries who visit this website are (in this order): USA, UK, Canada, Australia, India, Germany, and the Philippines. I’ve personally visited all but India and the Philippines, although I hope to remedy that one day.


The top 3 posts of all time on this website are:

How to Write 5,000 Words a Day

Dear Writer: Stop Releasing So Many Novels

Top 10 Best Book Opening Lines


I want to give a shout-out and thank you to the group of authors/companies who have contributed to contests (among them, Allison Maruska comes to mind), as well as Andrea Lundgren for her help and awesomeness. Also thank you to the authors/companies who advertise on this website, helping to make this all possible. If you have a moment, check out their books/services (along the left and right sidebar) to help support them.

Thank you again, everyone, for all your faithful reading. I will do my best to bring you the best content available.

  1. Congrats! I would say you couldn’t have done it without me but it would have only delayed reaching the landmark a few minutes later :p


      1. That’s great. I enjoy meeting people who visit my site too. I’ve met a women from Singapore who just wrote a children’s book with her mother. I wrote about her to promote her book. Hope you stop by and read that. Hopefully her book comes to the U.S. soon. Here’s to more GREAT things happening in 2017!
