If you want to read about video games, I'm your guy. I'm an avid 29 year old gamer from Puerto Rico that writes about video games as a hobby. I am also a published author for Apress, and have written four books for them. I also have a self-published fantasy novel titled Whispers of Dawn. Basically, lots and lots of writing! :)

        4 years ago

        So, I've been publishing a series of hubs related to a certain video game. I published the last one about 16 hours ago. I came back today and realized that it was Pending. I don't think I've had a hub go to Pending on...

        As the subject title says. What has me really giddy is the fact that I've stayed there for over two hours, which breaks my previous high record on this site.(And yes, I realize Hubscore is largely pointless. Let a man...

        It's exactly as the subject title states. Yesterday, I got roughly 100 more credited impressions but made roughly the same amount of money thanks to the CPM being lower.Is anyone else in the same boat as me?
