There’s something very alluring about seeing numbers on a page. That is why stories about numerical milestones always seem to attract Medium readers.

It’s no secret to anyone who’s been following my Medium journey, that May 2024 marked my 3rd year of being a member on this writing platform.

In the past, I’ve marked numerous milestones, as I reached certain numbers that I aspired to reach, and I hit lots of numerical related goals.

Pretty soon (within a month or so), I’ll be reaching an additional milestone I’m subconsciously aiming for, though I try to deny it matters.

I will hit 5,000 followers (currently 4,889)

Other numerical milestones still on the horizon, are the growth of my story catalog, currently consisting of 1,552 stories published, and my number of Responses, currently at 4,512 comments I’ve made.

Naturally, the next two milestone numbers I’m shooting for, will be the BIG 5,000 Responses, and 2,000 stories, possibly by this same time next year.
