7,000+ Comments I Am Thankful For
When at first you do succeed....
When at first you do succeed,
try, try again, for it could happen again.
For the writer who writes and no one reads,
it's like the wedding feast to which no one came.
For the writer who gets feedback and good comments,
it's like a New Year's party after a favorite class in school!
At HubPages we feed off each other: learning, growing.
We become a part of a growing international crowd.
I hear from the U.K., India, Australia, Latvia, etc,.
with photos, words of praise, and advice.
Sure, and I will try and try again.
Making the words count more than just counting words.
The first 7,000+ Comments
I have indeed been with HubPages for about four years now.
Being viewed 50,000+ times is a good benchmark, but not extraordinary here.
What I appreciate the most are my Followers' comments which have been helpful guides to improving my skills, and have been motivators to strive to join the best of the best. Thanks.
I am not yet one of those "best of the best" but I am striving to be.
In over 800 Hubs, I have had no "Editor's Choice," no "Hub of the Day," onlly one Hub with a score of 100, and only one bonus piece. The current breakdown of readers' reactions is as follows: 1065 Interesting / 192 Funny / 577 Useful / 721 Awesome / 522 Beautiful.
But there are things I have had, like the joy of writing, the thrills of being accepted, praised at times, even appreciated.
For all who have made this journey so enjoyable, from the HP staff and administrators, to my fellow Hubbers, and especially to those who have at one time or another been my Followers: it has happened because of you.
You have my sincere thanks.
May God bless your own efforts, as you have blest mine.
