A HubPage Letter of Congratulations


It arrived in my e-mail today from the great HubPage staff

It said congratulations your hubs have been read 10,000 times.

That’s when I just sat there.

You know creative people like all of us have a whole bunch of emotions just waiting to get out.

Well at first I wanted to laugh, perhaps have a fit of hysteria or cry.

Then I calmed down and let my mind go blank and waited for what would come.

Here are my first immediate thoughts

Jim Carey as the Mask:”You like me, you really like me.”

Eliza Doolittle in”My Fair Lady” after she finally says the rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain and she wanted to dance all night.

Dorothy in”The Wizard of Oz”:”Toto, I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore”. Then I added,”We’ve been read 10,000 times”. lol

Finally the way Alice in Wonderland felt after she had fallen down the rabbit hole.

Well if I haven’t got you all rolling on the floor by now or in hysterics as well here’s the sincere part.


Thank you from Sid
Thank you from Sid

So here I sit, wondering how this arrow struck

I’ve been informed

That my hubs have been read 10,000 times

Now I know that I’m no Shakespeare

Neither am I as great as apple pie

But somehow I’ve arrived and people like what they have read

But I know who to thank first and foremost

It’s my wonderful followers and Hub friends

So instead of singing my own praises

I say instead,”We did it, we did it!"

All of us together on this crazy merry-go-round

We support and help each other

Along the road to success

Let’s keep on hubbing and sharing

And doing a lot of caring

Let’s pat each other on the back

And be glad that we all have such clever, innovative, informative and enjoyable hubs to read

The thanks goes out to all of you

And I look forward to reading many more of your hubs my friends!

Congratulations. This is so sweet. Sid seems to be looking at the camera like he's saying, "But, of course." Or some such smart thing a cat would say. Sid is also a very handsome cat. Enjoying the beatles video. You are so thoughtful.
