I hit 1,100,000 views on 10/21/2013. (7.5 months past my predicted 30-day window).
I hit 1,000,000 on 04/07/2012. (8 days past my predicted 30-day window).
I hit 0,900,000 on ~5/13/2011. (last day of my predicted 30-day window–victory! barely!).
I hit 0,800,000 on 08/28/2010. (23 days after my predicted 30-day window).
I hit
0,700,000 on 01/21/2010. (17 days before my predicted 30-day window).
I hit 0,600,000 on 07/07/2009. (within 1 week of vague “June” prediction–victory!).
I hit 0,500,000 on 12/04/2008. (no prediction).
I hit 0,400,000 on 05/24/2008. (27 days past prediction).
I hit 0,300,000 on 02/13/2008. (1 day before prediction–victory!).

So:
300K-400K (2008) took 03.5 months.
400K-500K (2008) took 06.0 months.
500K-600K (2009) took 07.0 months.
600K-700K (2010) took 06.0 months.
700K-800K (2010) took 07.5 months.
800K-900K (2011) took 07.5 months.
900K-1.0M (2012) took 11.0 months.
1.0M-1.1M (2013) took 18.5 months.

This last 100,000 was the slowest one ever… Man do people hate movie reviews, compared to political rants. This 2nd-to-last last 100,000 was  slower than the previous two as well. That would put my prediction for hit #1,200,000 at around 6/20/2015 plus or minus 15 days. At this rate, 2014 will be the only year to not see a 100,000 milestone since 2004-2007. We’ll see what happens. I’ve been playing this game for awhile, but it’s getting harder to predict the future.
