Can you help make this the most commented hub on HubPages?

I want to be part of the HubPages party!
I want to be part of the HubPages party! | Source

To me, HubPages is like a fun party where lots of cool people are talking about sophisticated subjects.

And completely ignoring me.

It’s my own fault. I showed up two years ago, wrote three articles, and then disappeared until about two weeks ago. No wonder the most comments I’ve received on my hubs numbers only six.

Well, one way to become the life of the party is to run a game, which is what I’m doing.

The objective of this challenge is simple: to make this little hub the most commented one on HubPages.

You can play by leaving a comment. In exchange, I’ll visit at least one of your hubs to get to know you.

At minimum, please put your city and state, or if you’re from outside the US, your city and country. Like this: Placentia, California.

You can guess is my city and state. I’m located in Southern California.

I’ll update the comment tally at the top of the article, assuming any comments are left.

Let’s see how many comments we can get on one hub!

Update

6/22/2011 - 8 comments, double yesterday's!
6/21/2011 - Lots of visitors but only 4 comments. Please comment when you visit.

I'm first! Therefore, I'm exempt from having to write anything witty.

Interesting concept ... wish I had thought of it first.

Hi alocsin,

It's a good way of getting linked. I use to read your Airline hubs. All of them are very informative and useful. Wish you get more comments here! Good Luck!

Surely if you responded to at least one comment every day this would bring the Hub to the top of HP's hidious Home Page. Why did they feel it necessary to copy FaceBook ? I thought Hub Pages was for the intellegent !

OK, I'm from West Los Angeles. I don't really understand why you correlate the few comments with your disappearance. I have hubs that have zero comments.

Not many comments on this hub. That is surprising since it is an easy read. So let's see if we can get it in front of more hubbers.

Arlene V. Poma 4 years ago

I'm ARLENE, and I'm from SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA. I will turn 54 next month. WHEN NO ONE'S LOOKING, I TAKE CANDY FROM STRANGERS. This is my newest goal in life besides getting in at McDonald's on the night shift. I watch "The Young and the Restless" and will admit it. I am retired and live in my bathrobe. I start my day at 9 a.m. or 10 a.m. If I don't have anything planned, I return to bed.

LET'S SHAKE UP THIS PARTY. OR I'M GOING BACK TO BED. IF SUPERMODELS CAN DO THIS, SO CAN I . . .

Wow, I'd like to thank everyone for reviving this defunct hub. It has a ways to go though before it surpasses my most commented hub, which has over 100 comments. But I should let everyone know I'm in Orange County, California, not too far from Disneyland and the Nixon Library.

It's a little early, isn't it??? 7:50 a.m. in California. WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE??? It's SATURDAY! Haven't you heard of SLEEPING IN???

WHERE'S MY COFFEE??? WHERE'S MY SUGAR AND CREAM???

alocsin profile image

alocsin 4 years ago from Orange County, CA Author

Well, Rochelle Frank, I wrote this hub a gazillion years ago, when none of my hubs were getting hits. Now I have several hubs with over 100 comments, so this particular hub needs far more comments to reach that number.


alocsin profile image

alocsin 4 years ago from Orange County, CA Author

Thanks Sunshine625. I send them happy fun wishes as well.


alocsin profile image

alocsin 4 years ago from Orange County, CA Author

I know, WD Curry 111. I have a long way to go just to catch up to my own commented hubs as well -- several are now over a hundred.

Arlene, we have to get up early to go to Disneyland. That's the secret to avoiding all the tourist crowds.


alocsin profile image

alocsin 4 years ago from Orange County, CA Author

Just a little status report for everyone. This hub is up to 59 comments, most of which happened in the past 24 hours. But, my most commented hub is this one, with 154.

Arlene V. Poma 4 years ago

alocsin, I am afraid of rides. Except the tame ones. Otherwise, I will be throwing up all over the place. Don't count on DRAMAMINE. But you can always send me to the snack bar for the $$$$$. Yes, I do need to replace my Mickey Mouse hat with my name embroidered on the back of it.

Denise Handlon 4 years ago from North Carolina

Hello Alocsin, I have to hand it to you-great game to get to pass around, haha. I voted it funny. Although getting the views from Google and the recognition in the HP community, (as stated in your hub), is 'serious' business, humor goes a long way and making it a 'fun' job lightens the load. Way to go (UP)

Okay, I'll join in. I'm in Georgia, USA. The weather can't decide what it wants to do, so here I am checking my hubs. I should be writing one, but I think I'm falling prey to procrastination even though I wrote a hub about not doing that. So anyway, I'm doing what's most fun right now - reading hubs. Here's your comment and good luck!

It's really interesting how this site works. I am having a similar experience that you had. I made an account almost four years ago and didn't post much, now for the last week and a half I have started up again in earnest with minimal exposure. Hopefully I will follow in your footsteps and write great hubs and gain a following :-)

I think somebody said it, but you are most clever. :-) I'm from the suburbs of Chicago. We had Spring in March and April has felt like Fall. People in this area are fast, fast, fast--not taking much time to slow down. I want to go and live where the town shuts down on "good wave" days so everybody can go surfing. Not that I know how to surf...but it would still be nice!

Martus 4 years ago

Hi Alocsin.great new idea,openning this page.

Is there any reason to limit comments " at minimum ?"

Seek-n-find went over " minimum" and her comment is making " game" more interesting .

How about to challenge comments to practical experiences shared , helping others :

a) to get started if not sure to be qualified ;

b) let a dialog going on. Etc.

Can cutting corners be beneficial ? Do not waste what has left.
