A New Milestone - Over 50k Words

Last Update: November 30, 2018

Woot Woot!

Sorry for the above picture - it is literally the only 50k picture I could find. I have taken days or weeks off here and there while preparing for the little one's arrival in a few weeks, but I have finally hit that 50k word mark in my 4 months here.

I didn't set a word goal for this year, other than the fact that I wanted to hit a certain amount of posts each month and I believe that I have done that (to be honest, I can't remember what my goal was)!

A Continous Journey

Although this is a great achievement that I am sure many of you have hit or will hit shortly, it is just the beginning. 50k words in 4 months and 1 week sounds great, but I am looking to expand on the larger picture.

Once I hit my 100k mark on one site and generate 50k on another, I think I can breathe a bit better. Until then I will keep typing away with what time I have in my daily routines!

Where Are You On Your Journey?

What is your overall word count? Did you face any struggles getting there? Let us know in the comments section below!

Hey Craven,
I have been here a little over a year and don't quite have 50k words yet. So you are doing an awesome job.

Tried and True

Well Done! That's is great, keep up the great work!
I have 92,278 words in 7 months. I most definitely had struggles. In the beginning I had tried to write a few articles as quick as I could and later on ended up deleting them completely. Had a couple issues with my site itself and still find it hard to manage time for it. I am still giving it my best. I have made a total of 9 sales so far, that makes it a little easier to keep moving forward.
Wish you much success!

That is an immense amount of writing! The sales you are getting are making the site worth while, as most people don't see sales in their first 8 months to a year. Here is to you being ahead of the curve!

Well done!

Just checked...I have 52,950 in 5 months, but did a couple of posts directly in WP, so those aren't counted. Yes, I faced struggles, but my problem is not with the writing, but with everything else...lol...however, am hanging in there.

Thank you so much Donnie! I had a similar path as you in terms of real life - I moved from sunny florida to western north carolina when I was younger. I hope the mountains and weather are treating you well as you get to experience all season now!
