How to celebrate?

Hey all.

I'm not bragging (and I'm sure it's probably not a reason to brag, I know tons of you have WAY more followers and favorites and higher ratings and what-not) but I'm getting awfully close to a thousand followers, which feels like a pretty big milestone to me.

Do you guys do anything to celebrate these kinds of things? If so, what have you done?

Wine and chocolate? I don't know, I don't have nearly that many followers.

Congratulations

No, the key is to never be happy. Be sad that you dont have 2,000.

That's how i would feel, to motivate me to write more and better.

That's just my perspective on things.

Hey now!

That's not fair. If I have to start writing well I'm in REAL trouble!

But seriously, thanks for the thought.

Setting goals and celebrating is always important. You should be proud of your work....

Now the celebration should be geared toward the final goal. If 1000 is enough, it should be (like a fun, expensive toy) but if the final goal is much higher, then some small and cheap is the way to go!

Well good.

Hmmm, that makes sense, though I don't know what a good "final" goal is around here. I have no sense of the scale, here.

Unfortunately, I cannot help you there. How well do you want known? If simply having happy followers is enough, 1000 can be significant.

I'm content with 47 (of which I think 40 is defunct, but they counts!)

A bottle of Veuve Clicquot and a couple of friends, one of whom has no idea that you write smut.

Congrats on a landmark number.

I kind of agree with heyall in the sense that now that you've gotten there, don't quit now. However, the being sad you don't have more isn't something I'd agree with.

After awhile it sort of becomes less special so enjoy that thrill now, it may not always be the case.

A few months ago I went over ten thousand. I admit that was kind of cool as in I'm only the third author here to ever do it, but....I'm paid the same as everyone else anyway.

Wow!

Congratulations on that! At the rate I'm going I'll never hit those numbers in my lifetime, which I'm at peace with.

Are you sure there are only three over ten thousand? How do you know?

btw, I stole that quote from an athlete named Alex Gustoffsen who said something like an athlete should never be happy. Always strive for more.

I liked it and I always try to think like that.

Congrats on reaching that threshold.


Gosh, I don't think I could handle having HeyAll's attitude. I prefer to enjoy each new threshold, even if each one is arbitrary. Of course, he passed 2000 a long time ago, and I'm still short of that number.

Something I've noticed is that with time and an accumulation of all the numbers you can get a little jaded and forget that it's great to know that people -- whether they be in the dozens, hundreds, or thousands -- are out there reading your stories. It's all relative.

My variation is when some people say their favorite words are typing the end mine is 'next' as in never be satisfied. But it doesn't mean you can't take some pride in what's been done.

You'll be hitting ten k soon, be passing me soon since I don't put stories here anymore.

Well, if 10k is top 5, then 1000, is amazing!

The favorite authors list is actually sort of sad for me sometimes. Every time I look and see that I've passed a former AH regular who no longer comes here, I sigh.

I'm creeping up on Marsh Alien now.

Yeah, it kind of seems like a shallow victory of sorts to pass someone no longer active.

I remember when Alwaywantedto pulled his stories. He sent me an e-mail telling me why, then added "You're welcome for getting to move a spot up in the top ten."

Not the way to do it, especially in his case.

You've done very well considering you write a lot of fetish which isn't a highly voted category. I'm where I am mostly due to incest and a handful of very successful mature stories
