50,000 Word Marker

Last Update: May 20, 2019

I've hit a milestone marker! As of today, I've written 50,103 words. Now, granted, many of you have already written considerably more words than my current count of 50,000. But, that's about the number of words in a novel written for teens, and half way to the number in the average adult novel.

If this were miles on my car, I might be thinking about trading it in for a 2020 model. Instead, I'm basking in the glow of typing such an notable number of words.

More important than the number, however, is the potential these words have to benefit an unknown number of individuals. I put a great deal of thought into topics for my posts, and then even more into choosing the right headings and illustrations.

I've been more aware lately of my "ideal reader" too. I'm not exactly sure who that ideal is, so I try to make sure everyone reading my posts feels welcome and included in the conversation.

The little box that announced my all-time word count achievement also included my standing in relation to other WA members.

I've written "more than 98% of WA Members this month?" The first thought through my mind was "Why?"

I'm about to retire from teaching, but I'm full time, on the job for two more weeks. How can I be in that outrageous 98% category?

Forty percent, maybe. Fifty percent possibly. But, 98%?

We have over one million members here. Why are so many people passing up such a potentially life-changing opportunity? They've purchased a membership. They must be sold on the value of WA.

Just a few days ago Carson sent us all an email about the sensational new affiliate platform that will make our lives so much easier. It's added one more crazy level of "value added" to the WA mix of features.

I'm confident that in the not-too-distant future, I'll be one of the people benefiting greatly from my word count. Benefiting from contacts from readers, and benefitting from sales.

If you haven't been active here at WA lately, carve out a little time and get back in the game. Some people search a lifetime for the kind of opportunity weve been presented with here at WA. I know life can get busy, but this is your future. As far as we know, life is not a dress rehearsal.

Come on...give me some competition in the monthly all-time word count. Are you up for it? I hope so.

I've done twice as many words and am just a little bit higher...I think 99% -- must be a big gap in there somewhere.

Good on you for doing 50,000...that's your first novel.

Thank you. I think I have to get a plugin. There's before WA site content and after Wa site content to consider!

That's awesome. I know that some of the WAers doesn't like writing with Sitecontent. They prefer other methods like writing in Word and copying a paste straight to WP.

Or perhaps they just use WP. But whatever the case that is a lot of writing! You go, girl! 😃

Thanks for responding. Kyle's training shows using Sitecontent, so that's what I started with and still use. I appreciate your kind words.

Hi Nancy and congratulations on your great progress.

YAY 98%

I would say that many people here at Wealthy Affiliate write straight into WordPress.

I myself am like you and writing in site content because I love the stats feature.

221,793 is my word count in site content, this is not to boast but as your request to share.

Here's to making it happen

Have a great day
