Meet My Hubbers: A to H: A guide to hubbers

With the thought of writing a tribute to my followers (and those I follow), I looked up 'tribute'. Surprisingly most of the tributes are either to bands or those who are deceased. You can write a tribute and post it on a website for someone deceased, amazing. Websites like forevermissed.com or paxmemoriam.com and more are available. As for bands and performers there are tributes all over the Internet. It seems like the most popular tributes are to the Beatles.

Moving right along, I then decided to just call this hub "Meet My Hubbers". These are my followers and hubbers I follow. Some you may know, some you may not, but I guarantee you each and every one of them is a hubber with style and personality! I have not selected these above all others, its just a matter of space and time, I'd love to write about everyone of my 410 followers but room does not permit. ALL of my followers are great! Please followers, know I did not mean to leave anyone out, I randomly chose some to introduce. Who knows, maybe there'll be another A to H including those left out here.

I like to read hubs about other hubbers. One of the reasons;

See results without voting

Why now? After seventeen months on hub pages why write this now? Well to tell the truth I am just so overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity of my fellow hubbers! My hubs have had over 100,000 views...that just boggles my mind, I don't know about yours...and I know a lot of those views are due to my great followers.

By way of introduction to this hub, now let me introduce you to some of my followers (no, I'm not going to write about all of them in this hub, I wish I could). I hope my introduction will help you learn a little more about my friends and maybe make them your friends too! Yes, I did introduce some in my hub 2012 Voting Ideas but I figure many of you might've passed that one by. I have just put a short synopsis by each hubber.

Let's begin with Au fait...interesting name for an interesting hubber. (Au fait means at fact.) To quote from her profile "I often write on education, home schooling, psychology, sleep patterns, nature, health, and more..." You can't miss with Au fait and that's a fact!


Austinstar - Lela is a Choctaw Indian who has been described as being creative and sassy! She writes about Native Americans, Aztec and Mayan Culture, photography, recipes, and more...you can see where 'creative' comes in, you'll have to check her out to find out about the sassy!

Kenneth Avery - Ken's sense of humor is only surpassed by his wonderful creativity! A statement from his profile tells you more about Ken, " I am grateful for my followers and want to produce the hub that will not only cause you to think, but maybe laugh a little, for in this present day, it never hurts anyone to take a minute to laugh."

Bac2basics - She is interested in returning to the basics and writes about money saving and basic skills according to her profile page. But she writes much more...hubs about vacations, poems, hubs about the paranormal...an all 'round gal!

Billybuc - Thinking about what I was going to say about Bill gave me nightmares. How do you describe someone who is caring, socially aware, funny, astute, intelligent, kind, helpful and more? It's not easy. To quote Bill, "Good writers actually stun their readers and that is what I hope for." He actually does that in many ways.

Deborah Brooks - She says, "Writer of poems, and love stories..fiction." A special lady with a special talent...her poems just keep on flowing! She's reached 500 followers and there's no one can 'top' her!

Cogerson - we must deduce he is modest because there are no pictures of him, anywhere! He's a stay at home dad with an interest in baseball and movies. His movie hubs follow his "movie score" pattern and are unbelievably informational, and he's a nice guy.

Peg Cole - Peg is retired and writes great hubs but I've gotta tell you her ongoing series, The Pub, is a must read. She draws you in and keeps you there..she's up to chapter three and I'm hoping there's a chapter four!

Lord de Cross - voted "Best Community Activist" on August 6th, 2012 and that's only the tip of the iceberg. His math hubs are not only interesting and educational but fun to read but his hubs don't start or stop there.... there's a lot to Lord de Cross!

Diogenes - I don't know if Bob is looking for an honest man but I can tell you his writing is honest. His subjects are varied from health to travel. Bob once said, " You hubbers own me. You can reduce me to happy tears...We are a special group on this site." Get the idea? Great guy and hubber.

Docmo - The one and only! He smoulders, he writes, he invites. There's no one like Docmo. He is a writer extraordinaire whether writing poetry, fiction or informational hubs on health. He is what every writer aspires to be! His series on the 'Imp' and 'Winnie the Pooh' are not to be missed.

Shea Duane - Shea's an English teacher and provides us with a lot of 'refresher' information! ... she even has articles on the S.A.T.'s...how's that for an English teacher? Her recipes and government hubs are not to be missed. She also writes beautiful articles about children.

Eclectic Fusion - As diverse as her name implies. Poems, hubs about health, movies, crafts,and more. She "loves the hour just before dawn" and you can't lose reading her hubs before dawn or anytime!

kdubarry03 - This is an amazing young talent. From 'how to write' to 'pets and animals' he covers them all. However, though he excels in everything his short stories are creative and most are 'scary' and far above the norm. He writes so well in that genre its unbelievable!

Elayne001 - Elayne currently hails from Hawaii and shares the traditions and food of Hawaii with us. Elayne is also an incredible artist. She is a member of The Windward Artists Guild and Association of Hawaii Artists. Her art shines through in her hubs.

Fpherj48 - Paula/Effer...there is no way to describe this lady so you'll have to just try to understand. Effer has come through a lot of difficulties with her sense of humor in tact. Her writing can be serious and it can be witty...she can do whatever she wants and is a valuable member here in Hubville and a fantastic friend!

Audrey Howitt - is a singer and one of our wonderful poets! In nine months Audrey has written seventy poems. She gets comments like, " Your poetry is always superb, Audrey!" and "Wow! Audrey..wow! You don't write, my friend - you create!" Stop and see her and be prepared to like poetry!

jhamann - A real family man. Mr. Hamann writes lovingly about his children and love in general. He has a variety of hubs including poems, hubs about literature and more. One of his fan mails reads, "Interesting and unusual. Looking for more hubs about painting."

You are just so nice! Thank you Mary! I'm happy to say I follow all of these except for two, and I'll take care of that today. Your kind words leave me speechless. 100,000 views? That is incredible and very well-deserved. It is an honor to know you, Mary, and I am very happy that we are friends. Thank you!

Mary, you picked a fine group of hubbers to pay tribute to and for the most part completely agree with your list. Loved seeing all the wonderful people being written of and being paid homage to in one place. Great job and have of course voted up, shared and tweeted too!

tillsontitan 4 years ago from New York Author

Bill, I wouldn't say I'm nice, just truthful ;) but thanks and thanks for the congrats...its hard for me to believe too! I'm happy we are friends and always love to read your hubs.

Joseph, you certainly deserved the award, as we all know. Glad you intend to keep on writing 'cause I intend to keep on reading!

Janine, I have not met anyone on Hub Pages that I wouldn't be proud to call friend. I'm glad you like it and appreciate your vote.

Oh yeah? Well,I agree with bill. You ARE nice......more than that, you're an ACE author with some of the best hubs in Hubville!

I have witnessed you grow in leaps and bounds and the number of views does not surprise me in the least...nor does the Hubber score you've maintained now for some time.....You deserve it all, GF.....

I was lucky to have run into you early on and have the pleasure of following you right along.

Getting to know my SFAM, Baby boomer, and friend who speaks the same language as I do!

Wishing you continued success and a very long HubCareer!! Effer

Wow Mary, I am well and truly honoured and actually " Gobsmacked" that you should have included me in your list..".Blinking heck "as I would say in my own lingo( that´s the polite version) Coming from you this really is a great honour for me. Thank you so much for thinking me good enough, I´m almost speechless ..which is a total wonder for me.. You really have given me a great confidence boost, and I will be carrying on, as I enjoy both the writing, and the wonderful people I have met ( including yourself) through hubbing. Thank you again, you have just made my day ( well night ) :)

Okay, I wrote this big long comment and forgot to hit post comment or something because it didn't show up...hmm, good hubber?

Anyway, my dear Effer....getting to know you, laugh with you and cry with you has been a great experience for me BFF...I value the friendship we've started and hope we continue indefinitely! Your praise means a lot to me.

dwachira, I am so glad I was able to introduce you to someone...that was my purpose in writing this hub...we can't find them all on our own. Thanks for stopping by.

B2B...I am thrilled that I flabbergasted you ;) You don't need your confidence boosted, you're a great writer and a great gal, but I'm glad I made your day (and night) Stay well my friend.

Well, I am surprised you introduced me! Most people either really love me or really dislike me. I'm ok with that! Thanks for liking me :-)

You are pretty special yourself. I love your hubs and try to comment as much as I can. Dang, where does the time go? Find it and bring it back, would you?

Thanks for the shout out....trying not to be humble...I decided to include a photo of me on my profile for awhile. If that one is not clear enough you can check out my award winning 2011 avatar on this link...about the 5:55 mark. And you can actually see me in that one...lol.

http://blog.hubpages.com/2011/08/fifth-birthday/

Great idea for a hub....I am very glad I was included....and I enjoyed reading about many hubbers I know very well and some that I am not familiar with...but will check them out....voted up and awesome.

A hundred thousand views, wow. It is no wonder too. With your diverse and entertaining subjects. There I was reading along on this one and saw my own avatar. What! Wow. Thank you Mary, for including me on this Special Tribute. I loved the format of a quick peek at the writers and a bit about them even before I found my name among them. And Thank You for the plug on my new series. Just released chapter 4 working on 5.

I'm eager to read more from the people you've introduced here. Many are brand new to me and it's so great to find new recommended writers to follow. Thank you! Thank you!

Peg

tillsontitan 4 years ago from New York Author

Oh so you want the Scwarzenegger look Cogerson? I remember that Avatar...obvious why that one won....we'll have to see what happens next year ;) Glad you liked this hub. I was hesitant about posting it but so far my feedback has been good. I'm working on I-M.

Peg I wanted to make introductions but I didn't want them to be boring. I love your "Pub" series and hope the 'plug' helps!

What a sweet lady you are to give us all such an awesome tribute! Thank you so much -- knew there was a reason I picked a handle starting with A. Very humbling too, to be at the top of a list (due to alphabet of course) of such a highly talented and interesting group. Looking forward to reading about the I thru P group next.

Voted you up, interesting, beautiful (for your kindness to us all) and awesome! Will share!

tillsontitan 4 years ago from New York Author

Au fait, you are one of my earliest followers and we have been able to support each other for quite a while. So glad you liked my hub. I through M is almost done. (Too many "M"s.)


pagesvoice profile image

pagesvoice 4 years ago from New York/Pennsylvania border

Voted up, useful and interesting. I'm glad to see that some of the Hubbers you have named that I too am following and now I have an opportunity to explore other writers as well. The best compliment an author can receive is when they have been acknowledged by a member of their peers.


tillsontitan profile image

tillsontitan 4 years ago from New York Author

Thank you Pagesvoice, you've understood my reasoning in writing this hub and I hope you may find one or more new friends to follow.

I am honored just be among this elite company and that includes YOU. you are a warm, talented, wonderful human being and I am proud to call myself your friend. Thank you so much!


tillsontitan profile image

tillsontitan 4 years ago from New York Author

Docmo, I am truly happy when someone I admire and respect feels the same way about me...hmm, 'mutual admiration society'? Seriously, it is my honor to add you to the list of 'my hubbers' and my hope that hub pages and the relationships I have formed here will last for YEARS! P.S. You are welcome.


missolive profile image

missolive 4 years ago from Texas

Another great list of hubbers. I felt like an eager reader roaming the aisles of a bookstore. I almost knew every single one of them. Many heartwarming writers in this group. Not only do I enjoy their work, their comments are a fun read too. I just wish I had time to comment as often as I read their work. I do appreciate them and you, for putting this together.

FYI, your comment above to Docmo...mutual admiration society...I LOVE that!


tillsontitan profile image

tillsontitan 4 years ago from New York Author

And I love your analogy of walking through a bookstore MissOlive! So nice to read your comment. Thank you for stopping by.

Dear Mary,

I know this is going to be a series that I refer to until I have mastered it. I love about half of the wonderful individuals on this list already so I know I will agree with those friends of yours that I do not yet know...

This is a fabulous idea and voted UP and across the board!

Hugs, Maria


MickeySr profile image

MickeySr 4 years ago from Hershey, Pa.

I honestly don't want to be critical, but, I think it's like a rule around here that all interviews, tributes, or any manner of acknowledgment of hubbers are supposed to start with 'M'.


tillsontitan profile image

tillsontitan 4 years ago from New York Author

Maria, a mild imitation of your wonderful interviews, this is a way to get to know each other. So happy you enjoyed!

Now Mickey are you trying to tell me something?


MickeySr profile image

MickeySr 4 years ago from Hershey, Pa.

. . . why, I'm sure I don't know what you mean . . ? But, I do think it's like a law here at HubPages - all interviews, tributes, or any manner of acknowledgment of hubbers must begin with hubbers whose name starts with an 'M', ends with a 'y', and has 'icke' in the middle, and if there are more than one hubber whose name fits this requirement, those who are 'Sr's are to move to the top of the list . . . and, something about bald men being first too I think. I'm just telling you the rules - I hate to see you bring unnecessary trouble to yourself.


tillsontitan profile image

tillsontitan 4 years ago from New York Author

I have a feeling I have to go read some of your hubs man whose name starts with an "M", ends with a "Y" and has "icke" in the middle!


MickeySr profile image

MickeySr 4 years ago from Hershey, Pa.

tillsontitan ~ I honestly wasn't trying to insert myself into your hubbers guide here . . . just having a bit of fun, that I now feel a bit embarrassed by, so, please don't go visit any of my hubs based on this ill-conceived promotion of myself as a hubber of any interest to others.

And don't leave any glowing comments, don't share them in any manner, etc . . . especially not my hubs on music, or my poetry, or hubs on how in love I am with my wife, etc, please don't check any of those hubs out.

(and, if your reply to this is nothing more than "Don't worry, I won't", then I'm going to propose to you - unless you actually don't)


tillsontitan profile image

tillsontitan 4 years ago from New York Author

Seriously Mickey? After all that do you think I'm the kind of person who could ignore you ;) Now I have to go back and read MORE!

Oh, speaking of 'Crazy', dear Mary...'In My Life', that would be ICKEY-MAY...

Next this cue ball will be trying to tell you he is really really smart.


MickeySr profile image

MickeySr 4 years ago from Hershey, Pa.

That's not fair Maria . . . you know I never said such a thing - it was the result of an unprovoked nominating process and election. I never said I was "really smart" - I was simply notified that this was the case.
