November 6, 2018: Three Miilion Total Views And Still Rolling
Posted by The Story Lover

Dragon

Folks,

Sometime yesterday while I was sleeping we broke the Three Million Total View Mark! We not only broke it we smashed it as the current number is 3,005,413 Total View Count. All of this has happened since the relaunch of the site on May 14, 2017, only 535 Days, amazing.

Thanks again to all of you wonderful readers for reading the stories on the site. A big thanks also to all of the wonderful authors whose stories are what attract you readers in the first place.

This site wouldn't be the success that it is without all of the authors, editors, and readers that keep the site growing. Thank you all very much, this site has exceeded my wildest dreams. Considering the fact that Uncle August gave me my site because he didn't like my email address! If he could only see it now. Uncle August, I will always miss you.

On to other news, thanks to those of you that have written with wishes for my better health, they are greatly appreciated. I am on the mend and hope to resume editing and posting tomorrow. I am slightly behind responding to emails, however, I hope to get caught up today.

Happy Reading,

TSL
