10,000 Pageviews and Counting! Thank You!

Dear Reader,

It’s been about 5 months since I started Stumble Upon Life. And what an amazing journey it’s been!

Stumble Upon Life achieved 10,000 Pageviews and close to 5,000 unique visitors yesterday. It’s a small win when compared to many blogs out there but it’s an important milestone for me as it only increases my drive to write more and make a difference to the world around me.

What started off as a quest to hone my writing skills and share my musings with the world has acquired an identity of it’s own! I have made new friends, met amazing bloggers and received so much love and support from all the readers!

I would like to thank each and every one of you who have been with me on this journey! It’ll only get better as I plan to interview many experts in the areas of Personal Development, Psychology, Human Resources and Life-skills. Their expertise is bound to help you in achieving a higher quality of life and help you out when you feel stuck and need a helping hand!

A special thanks to all the bloggers who regularly comment on my posts and share them with their readers. Harleena Singh, Rohan Chaubey, Ikechi Awazie and all the Aha-Now community members, I couldn’t have done this without you. Thank you once again!

A few of my posts have been wildly successful and have gone pretty viral in the social media space. The five most-read posts are:

Profound Life Advice from Comic Strips – My take on what the funny comics we read everyday teach us about life.

Monkey-See Monkey -Do –  My first post which talked about the need to stop being afraid of failure and taking massive action.

Confessions of a Restless Soul – A post which talks about how I started writing and the adventure that led to it.

Rules of Self-Esteem – An infographic-post which shares some of the best wisdom from some of the greatest movers and shakers of our world

3 Destructive Habits which Make You Mediocre – A must-read for all the people who wish to overcome the common enemies of productivity

Another recent post which has got rave reviews and got listed on Flipboard and Prismatic is about Minimalism which talks about doing more with less. Make sure you read these if you haven’t done so already!

As for me, it’s been one year since I finished my MBA and started off in the Corporate world. I have had a great run so far with some excellent learnings about people, business and life in general. Another significant event in the last month has been my marriage!

My girlfriend/editor-in-chief/secret-ninja-spy-woman Pooja is now my official partner-in-crime. That means what I write will be carefully scrutinized till it reaches a certain level of perfection. Which might not be so bad considering my random mood swings and hyperactivity on the blog! I thank her for being with me through thick and thin (mostly thick she says commenting on my recent weight gain)

A final bow to my co-conspirators Ashutosh and Adarsh who keep dropping in when I’m in trouble and laugh their butts off! Your mockery has been a silent ode to my determination!

Will be back shortly with more meaningful content. Stay tuned and keep smiling!

    Hi Niks,

    Hooray for you! Many congratulations for this achievement. It is not a small achievement, I can assure you that. Tons of blogs never even reach this milestone and shut down.

    You know I have been following your blog since the time we met on Aha!NOW ABC community. And I am so thankful to Harleena ma’am and Vinay sir for helping me reach out to you! 🙂

    I cannot forget to mention that your guest post on my blog received great comments and good amount of page views. I feel lucky that I had you at my blog as a guest author.

    Your posts have personally helped me to improve myself. And I have always mentioned in the comments how positive your writings have been.

    Oh, Thank you for the kind mention. Also thanks for always supporting me at my blog and during some ugly times.

    ❤ Wishing you a happy married life. ❤ Reading the post I realize that Pooja ma’am is surely going to help and motivate you to achieve much bigger milestones in no time. 🙂

    This achievement is all because of your creative mind and consistent hard work. You have truly earned every subscriber, reader and commentator.

    I am so excited and happy for you as I have myself witnessed your blog growing. I congratulate you once again and wish you all the best for the future. I am sure you have more fresh, exciting, engaging and untraditional content in store for us. Keep going bud.

    Its a long way to go but I know you are surely going to make this blog BIG. 🙂

    ✰ You are truly amazing! ✰
    – Rohan Chaubey.

    • Yes we have been travelling on this road for a while now and it’s been awesome! 😀 I’m so happy looking at the progress you’re making and am ever thankful for your support and help when I needed them! Cheers to you and good luck!! 🙂 🙂

    Many congratulations Nikshep. This is a superb achievement. All the best and keep up the wonderful work. Cheers 🙂

    Hi Niks,

    Congratulations and celebrations 🙂

    This is indeed wonderful news, and let me tell you, it’s certainly not easy to reach this far, especially for new bloggers, but you proved them all wrong! As Rohan mentioned, most of them give up too soon. I don’t think I’d reached to so many page views myself when I was only this old….lol…I didn’t even know how to look for page views that time!

    Nothing works better than being consistent and making those efforts, which every initial blogger has to make. And I won’t say we’ve all achieved it yet, as blogging is a process, it’s a journey that we need to enjoy and learn from, isn’t it? So, keep at it and we wish you every success for years to come.

    You’ve been such a gem of the ABC (Aha!NOW Blog Community), and we are honored to have wonderful Ahaians like yourself, Rohan, Ikechi, and so many others – you are all the reason why it exists, so we thank you too for being a part of our journey 🙂

    I guess we should thank Pooja too now for being your ‘better’ half…lol…as she’d be sharpening your writing skills as you both tread your path together. Yes, I do catch your lovely pictures on Facebook off and on – stay blessed and happy!

    Thanks for sharing your happiness with us, which makes us so happy too. Have a lovely week ahead, both of you 🙂

    • Bloggers like you are an inspiration to all of us Harleena! Without the ABC forum I would have not been able to meet so many wonderful bloggers and learn about this awesome experience. Will shout out a Hi to Pooja from you 🙂 Thank you for those kind words!
