Here at Odyssey HQ, we’re working tirelessly to change the way content is created and consumed. We can’t tackle such a big mission without providing a platform that enables our thousands of Creators to find and grow their unique audiences.

That’s why we’re thrilled today to announce the launch of personalized front-end dashboards! Whenever you’re on Odyssey, just click into your profile on the upper right corner of the screen, and select "Dashboard" directly under your name. There you'll be able to see your page views, social engagements, followers, and more. It's an opportunity to learn exactly what content resonates with your readers, and how to position yourself to take off as an influencer on Odyssey like never before.

Let’s use Callie Porcher, a Creator at Orlando, Florida, to dig into the different features available. Callie has been writing on Odyssey since May 2016. Previously, she had limited access to the performance of her work. Now, this is what she sees when she lands on her dashboard:

At the top is an overview of Callie’s lifetime statistics, which can easily be toggled to the previous week or month. Below is a stream of her drafts and live articles. Clicking a draft leads directly to MUSE to continue writing or editing, whereas clicking a live article leads to a zoomed in view of how that piece has performed on Facebook, as well a breakdown of which sites are driving traffic to it.

In September, Callie wrote an excellent personal letter to a former close friend. Since being published, it has amassed well over 2 million views. Let’s take a look at where all that traffic came from:

As you can see, this article took off on Facebook — to date it’s garnered 645.1K shares, 644.5K likes, and 145 comments. And counting. Looking at the referral sources, most of the views have come from Facebook on mobile, followed by Facebook on desktop. Next is direct traffic, meaning people who clicked on it while elsewhere on Odyssey, then t.co (Twitter), and Google.

Of course, not every article reaches such great heights in terms of raw views, but the beauty of this dashboard is the information it provides about everything you create. Which style of content performs best relative to others? Which topic seems to strike a chord with your readers? Does that topic have a better audience on one external platform than another? These are the questions you can start answering for yourself, and much more. To learn more about your dashboard, check out this walkthrough on the Odyssey User Knowledge Base.

So go play around with your own dashboard today! You’re one step closer to becoming a true Odyssey influencer.

19 Things About Being a Nursing Major As Told By Michael Scott

Michael just gets it.

If you're a nursing major, you relate to the following 19 things all too well. Between your clinical encounters and constant studying, you can't help but wonder if anyone else outside of your major understands the daily struggles you face in nursing school. And even though being the regional manager of Dunder Mifflin Paper Company, Inc. isn't the same as being a nursing major, Michael Scott does a pretty accurate job of describing what it's like.

1. When your professor overloads your brain with information on the first day of class.

2. Realizing that all your time will now be spent studying in the library.

3. Being jealous of your friends with non-science majors, but then remembering that your job security/availability after graduation makes the stress a little more bearable.

4. Having to accept the harsh reality that your days of making A's on every assignment are now over.

5. When you're asked to share your answer and why you chose it with the whole class.

6. Forgetting one item in a "select all that apply" question, therefore losing all of its points.

7. When you're giving an IV for the first time and your patient jokingly asks, "This isn't your first time giving one of these, right?"

8. You're almost certain that your school's nursing board chose the ugliest scrubs they could find and said, "Let's make these mandatory."

9. Knowing that you have an important exam that you could (should) be studying for, but deciding to watch Netflix instead.

10. Getting to the first day of clinical after weeks of classroom practice.

11. When you become the ultimate mom-friend after learning about the effects various substances have on the human body.

12. Running off of 4-5 hours of sleep has become the new norm for you.

13. And getting just the recommended 7-8 hours makes you feel like a kid on Christmas morning.

14. You have a love-hate relationship with ATI.

15. When your study group says they're meeting on a Saturday.

16. Choosing an answer that's correct, but not the "most" correct, therefore it is wrong.

17. And even though the late nights and stress can feel overwhelming,

18. You wouldn't want any other major because you can't wait to save lives and take care of others.

19. And let's be honest...

Queer Eye has taken college campuses by storm. I had no idea who they were when is stepped on campus in August, and now along with 85% of the female population, I am obsessed with five fabulous, gay men who change lives. So it's only fitting to represent my every mood with a Fab Five gif.

When your friends hold your to your plans to go out on Thursday night.

Thirsty Thursday always sounds like a great idea until it's 11:30 and all you want to do is sleep and watch Netflix.

Finding out class is cancelled.

Better than a good morning from any boy ever.

Thinking about another cafeteria meal.

There's only so many slices of pizza and bowls of cold pasta you can take.

When your friends are having mental breakdowns.

It happens to the best of us, and whether it's crying in library or at their apartment, you're always there for them.

Watching frat pledges.

From tabletop motivational speeches in the caf or swimming in the fountains, watching pledges are one of the most enjoyable parts of college.

When you actually do make it out on Thirsty Thursday.

Or when High School Musical comes on while you're in the car with your friends.

Trying to make it to your 8:00 AM when you wake up at 8:05.

We have all done the sprint of shame.

When you ace an assignment that you though you bombed.

It is a rare occurrence, but it does happen, and it is the best feeling in the world.

Opening the first page of an exam and realizing you know nothing.

No amount of studying can prepare you for the terror the some professors unleash.

When your roommate cooks for the first time.

We ALL have that friend who swears up and down they can cook, and they most definitely cannot.

When you decide to start a project in your room at 3 a.m.

It seems like such a great idea, until the next morning when you wake up in the middle of a disaster covered in glitter and regret.

When your friend finally shows up for class.

It sounds like a great idea to take a class with your friend until they quit coming and you have to sit by yourself.

Making an awful joke and getting actual laughs in return

Being accepted, bad jokes and all is, is what college friends are about.
