100,000 Page Views!

Sometime last night, Alternate History Weekly Update surpassed 100,000 page views! The last time we reached such a milestone was when we surpassed 80,000 page views on 9/5/12.  You know what? No matter what happens today, no matter how bad my luck is, until the moment I lay my head on my pillow I can look at this and be happy. Thank you everyone.

Alright lets check out the state of our social networking presence:
  • We had 52 Google followers on 9/5/12, now we have 58 (Goal: 100 by 6/13).
  • We had 154 Facebook fans on  9/5/12, now we have 172 (Goal: 300 by 6/13).
  • We had 62 members in our Facebook group on 9/5/12, now we have 67 (Goal: 150 by 6/13).
  • We had 201 Twitter followers on 9/5/12, now we have 233 (Goal 300 by 6/13)
  • We have 10 Networked Blogs followers on 9/5/12, now we have 12 (Goal: 15 by 6/13).
If anyone uses Networked Blogs, please follow us. It would be the cherry on today's sundae if we can put that goal to rest early. Also, members of our Facebook group, don't forget you can invite your friends to the group. If you know someone out there who likes alternate history, introduce them to Weekly Update.

I am proud to say that Weekly Update averages more than 10k views a month, and we continue to grow.  Those interested in advertising with us should check out our Advertise page for more details. If our readers like one of our advertisements I highly recommend that you click on it and help support Weekly Update.  Please check out our Amazon page as well to purchase a subscription for your Kindle (or Kindle app) or write a review. All proceeds go to help fund our upcoming podcast and other projects.

If you would like to contribute, I encourage you to contact me at ahwupdate at gmail dot com.  Weekly Update would not have grown to become what it is today without the help of the contributors who routinely submit articles to be enjoyed by you, the reader.  All contributors will be given the opportunity to promote their current projects, plus a link to their website(s) in the "Our Favorites" section on the left had side of the blog. I also hope to one day pay the contributors who write for Weekly Update if we can get a few advertisers.

Thank you once again for being a fan of Weekly Update and I hope that we can continue to provide top quality content for years to come.

    1. Haha. I did go out for dinner with my wife, so I guess that will have to count as a party.

  3. Congratulations! I didn't even know there was a Facebook group, just joined it (though I guess you have to confirm that?).

    I would love to contribute, but I don't think I can commit to being a regular contributor, nor do I have any projects to promote or ideas to share, so I guess I'll hold off on emailing you for now.

    1. Yep and I just confirmed you. Welcome to the group. Feel free to post in it.

      As for contributing, no offense to the great contributors out there, but I am the only one who posts on a schedule. Everyone else does it when they can and not everyone promotes stuff on the blog. If you have a review or article you want to share let me know. Also if you want to join our review team just email me.
