900 Followers Celebration!

900 Followers Celebration

Here we are again, back with yet another “Follower Milestone” post! We were having these so often, I skipped what would have been the “700 Followers” and “800 Followers” posts, instead waiting for the bigger milestone- 900!

600 Followers Celebration!

Well that was…fast. Didn’t we just have the last one about two and a half weeks ago? Yes, we did. My blog not only set a new personal record for the fastest time to gain 100 followers (in two weeks, actually given that I hit 600 a few days ago), but it also set massive new records for traffic, including reaching 200 daily views for the first time, then proceeding to do this three times in a single week.

What on earth is happening.

400 Followers Celebration!

And we are back yet again with another massive milestone- 400 followers. Guys, you are crazy awesome. Hardly over a month ago, we hit our 300 follower milestone after two months of publishing. While this was a rewarding experience, I couldn’t help but notice the fact that it only took two months to reach 300. Previously, it had taken 3 or even 4 months to garner an additional 100 followers. Last time, it was a new record. And here, yet again, we have set a record of 100 more followers in just over a month.

What on earth is next? Are we going to get 100 in a week? I feel so honored to even know that there are 400 people who enjoy reading my post. You guys are fantastic. Give yourselves a handclap.

300 Followers Celebration!

Excited for 300 followers on Africa Boy

Well guys, we’ve hit the next minor milestone. Two days ago, Africa Boy reached 300 followers, 30% of the way to our next major milestone. I can’t even tell you guys how excited I am.

Africa Boy was created in early March. I reached 100 followers in mid-July, showing that it took over four months to compile my first 100 followers. Then, I reached 200 at the very beginning of December, which meant that it only took 3 and a half months to add another 100. Now, I hit 300 on the 5th of January, which meant it took just under two months to add another 100. The speed is picking up, and I can’t wait to see where it goes.

200 Followers Celebration


Yesterday, as I blogged about the African Misconceptions, Africa Boy hit 200 followers. In just under three months, we have gone from 100 to 200 followers! This is absolutely awesome! Now, we’re 20% of the way to our major goal of 1,000 followers. However, this milestone is more meaningful then one might think. For the last three years, Africa Boy has experienced some major changes. Its site appearance, purpose, tagline, writing style, everything has undergone thought and change. Now, we even have a Facebook page! Truly, God is good. All the glory be to him forever and ever.

So, to celebrate our 200th follower, Luke, we’re going to do some unique stuff. Let’s get started!

Five strange things about me.

  1. I have chronic back pain. As a basketball player, I suppose that’s just part of the business, but I am plagued with bad back pain, especially after I play a game or workout.
  2. I am double-jointed. I can flex the first joints of my fingers, allowing me to easily palm a basketball.
  3. I am good at chemistry. As of right now, in 11th grade, Chemistry is by far my best subject. Apparently, I am the only writer/chemist teenager my friend Katelyn has ever heard of.
  4. I enjoy trying strange foods. To date, I have eaten food from China, India, Japan, USA, Uganda, Congo, Ethiopia, Thailand, England, Scotland, France, Spain, Mexico, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and a few more that I have forgotten. My favorite strange food is haggis.
  5. I took three years of piano and quite after my teacher moved away from Uganda to get married. I enjoyed the lessons but haven’t managed to find another teacher since.


This post was published by me just a few months ago. Called “The Ultimate Insult”, re-reading it and editing through it proved to be rather interesting. However, if you have any eye for writing, you will notice how much my writing style has changed in just the last few months. Practice makes mediocre, eh?

Looking Forward

While our overall goal is 1,000 followers, to hopefully be completed before 2021 is upon us, Africa Boy’s next milestone is 300 followers, which I hope to achieve before February of 2020.

Anyway, guys, thanks so much for being a part of this, and I truly appreciate you and your efforts. Thanks for reading this post, and if you haven’t already, be sure to click that Follow button, so as to not miss out on any new posts. Thanks again, and I hope you have an epic day!
