How I Finally Got My First 2k Views Story
Vico Biscotti

Awesome, Vico, congratulations on getting your first 2K views!

I’d also come across that story, it was great!

Don’t let not being a native english speaker get in the way of your writing. I am not one either, though you can say english is my first language while reading and writing.

I am on a daily blogging challenge, and except for my posts that are in publications, I don’t usually get more than 10 views.

One thing that the daily blogging has taught me is to NOT over edit things. I used to let my articles sit for at least a week. Now they are being published – and liked – with just half a day of editing.

I know what you mean about going back to crickets. I was featured twice in Medium’s handpicked topics, but new readers rarely checked my other posts, and after 3–4 days of a traffic increase, my stats always come back to normal.

In fact, it’s been more than a week, and one of those posts is sitting at 975 views, still doing it’s slow crawl towards my first ever 1K views!

All in all, it's more like a temporary boost, and a permanent increase in your confidence, and if you ask me, that’s something worth aiming for!

Like what you read? Give Atiba Shaikh a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
