Good day all! Recently, I got some good news. It seems that one of the perks of writing for a major website is that they keep tallies on how your articles did. And in addition to getting paid for all the submissions I wrote for the month of October, I was also sent a list with the official numbers.
Here’s what it looked like:
|10/13/2014||Bigelow Inflatable Module to be Added to Space Station in 2015||3913|
|10/16/2014||NASA Investigating Deep-Space Hibernation Technology||7032|
|10/20/2014||Water On The Moon Was Blown in by Solar Wind||1811|

Judging from this table, it seems that far more people will pay attention to you when you write about space news – instead of a combination of zombies, guns, star wars and gynoids. Who knew?
