My Top Ten Helpful Happy Friends, Fiends, and Newbies on the Eve of my 200th Hub

...A Blake4d 200th Anniversary Hub Awards Production...

Welcome Once Again to...

Now as I complete my 200th Hub it seems only right once again, to give thanks to the people who have so far gone beyond the call, really made my hub days shine, made me smile, or just made an effort to know me and respond, which always makes my time spent at the keyboard worthwhile. My list consists of both experienced and newbies to the Hub Pages. And everyone is someone who I gained and exchanged fun, flirtation, or just a fair shake of inspiration and ideas....None of my choices is based on their score or their earnings, or how long they have been a member. Which as I have said before, and will say undoubtedly again, I think all Hub Pagers should use the same standards of open consideration like I do in the future, there are a lot of old timers who don't give anyone the time of day. And there are a lot of newcomers who shine like nobody's business.

We shall see once again, who has the genetic mustard and the mental agility to become one of my honorable top ten hubbers like no others ...And so the awards go to, drum roll please.

No. 1
magnoliazz - My number one fan, I think this Hubber has written more text in my comments sections than perhaps even her own hubs. She is always spurring the most in depth discussions, can argue tooth and nail, and still is the most open minded animal friendly woman on the Hub Pages.

No. 2
dreamreachout - I don't know how to describe the never ending wellspring of deep and hard to answer questions this Hubber has demanded that I answer, but they are always intelligent and challenging questions, And on top of it his praises, loyalty and excitement makes you glad you are a writer, and that he is your fan.

No. 3
Sky321 - I attempted to write a few hubs concerning recipes for cooking ideas, and I am not a chef by any means, But Sky actually read one of my recipes and told me she was going to cook it that night. If you did or didn't doesn't matter, but noone else even read my receipes. Thanx for lifting my spirits for the rest of that month.

No. 4
TheGlassSpider - As a poet there is nothing more flattering than what this Hubber did on the first day we ever read each other, they read my poem and were so inspired that they wrote a call and response to it, and we ended up with a live commentary of new prose based on the original. GS also is very personal, and has a keen sense of humor.

No. 5
kimberlyslyrics - She is a fan, a reader, a writer and a hub particpant in the truest sense of the word. When she has your back, she means it and will put her words where everyone can see it. If anything kimberly, I hope I have done back as much support as you have given, I hope this gesture lets you know how much I appreciate your inputs. Peace Out.

No. 6
K+Partin - This writer is what in the old school we used to call a true believer. He writes well on many things, but I want to honor him for his truest and brightest accomplishment on the Hub Pages , his devoted and consistent writing to educate and enlighten others about the plight of the homeless worldwide. My hats off to you KP.

http://hubpages.com/profile/K+Partin

No. 7
BeccaHubbardWoods - This Hubber is talented as a writer, witty, sharp, and edgy. But my honorable mention has to do with that she gave me the biggest laugh of my whole time on Hub Pages, when I read the title of one of her Hubs...10 People I Want to Kick in the Balls. ROTF LMAO x 2.

http://hubpages.com/profile/BeccaHubbardWoods

No. 8
KFlippin - If you have not read anything by this relatively new Hub Pages poet and fictional writer, trust me you need to. In my opinion she has a sharp and unusual style brewing, and we are lucky to have her amongst our ranks. I predict she will one day be a formidable pen weilding force. And she is a very complimentary fan as well.

http://hubpages.com/profile/KFlippin

No. 9
Wayne+Brown - This fellow has all the qualities that I work too damn hard to achieve. He is down to earth, humorous, direct, insightful, and has that pureblood American sensibility about him. His opinions are thoughtful, but boy when his wit is on target, hope you are not in the crosshairs. WB you rock. Rock hard.

http://hubpages.com/profile/Wayne+Brown

No. 10
waynet - if there is anyone who is the purest spirit of what great hubs are about it is waynet. He has over five hundred hubs to surf thru, but I am especially amazed by his talent with the visual arts. Instruction hubs on drawing and life drawing techniques that you could pay expensive college professors to teach you half as well as his hubs do on their own. Also his knowledge in software and design...All the Hub Pages writers and readers should look to his work as a standard for us all to live up to.

http://hubpages.com/profile/waynet

 

I want to send thanx to everyone who has been so supportive here on the Hub Pages. Even with some ups and downs concerining Google and other entitiles recently. I have had a huge strike of good luck. My work on the Hub Pages and  my own blogs etc...has led me into a new and excellent opportunity. I am officially the Phoenix Arizona Paganism Examiner for Examiner.com as of two weeks ago. And those of you who know my writing will understand how perfect a fit that is for me, so now I will be able to give Hub Pages my more artistic and unusual off beat writings. While funnelling myself as an Examiner into a more formal and alternative revenue stream. Plus also I can find my way into new avenues within my local art and writing scene in Arizona. And I couldn't be more jazzed about it. There is a link to my Examiner.com pages on my profile...so please come and see my there. But never fear. Hub Pages has my heart and I hold that dear.

Congratulations to all my 200th Hub Page Winners. See you all when I hit number 300 later this year. And like I always say...

Keep On Hubbing. Blake4d

I am not familiar with many of these that you named here, but I intend to be soon. I am, however, quite familiar with Mr Wayne Brown and can attest to his humor, insightfulness, wit, and let's not forget charm!

I will read the work of these other hubbers, if you've listed them, I'm sure they are good. ~ Laura

First of all my heart helt Congratulations on your 200th hub!! I feel every milestone of my friends are my own!!

I am overwhelmed by your gesture of including me in 2nd position in your winners list!! I was more moved, when I returned from work today and saw your mail informing me about this appreciation hub from you!! I just dont have the words to thank you!!

I am also happy that magnoliazz is topping the list as she is also the best hubber I have encountered!! You wont believe the way she went out of her way to support me when my hub score was down!! She is an angel!!

Many other hubbers on your list, I am not much acquainted with but will surely follow now!!

I am here for fun after a hard days work and thats why, while I post comments on serious hubs, my own hubs are on aunties, travel and railway mostly!! I am here to chill out!!

I hope and pray that our association will last much beyond your 300th hub and look forward to your company till eternity!!

Congratulation once again and hope for the very best for you and your near and dear ones!!

WOW!! I am so honored!

200 hubs!! That is amazing! I can't wait to read your new stuff!

I also love your poetry.

You know how to make love to words... bend, tease and coax them to your will. That's what makes you a great writer of poetry! Truly lovely and beautiful poems! ( I was not really into poetry until I started reading your stuff.)

Blake4d...you are a breath of fresh air!

Thank you, I can't wait to see what else you will write in the future! Yippy!!

Yeah I like working and writing at night, the internet is faster, its quiet around the house and neighborhood, my cats are out roaming and busy, and plus I am just able to think more clearly at night. Especially from midnight to about three am. For me those have always been my best hours for clarity of thought, magic hours. Keep on Hubbing. Blake4d

BJBenson 6 years ago from USA

Funny, but I find that time to be that I can connect with departed ther best. I guess that is why it is the witching hour. Well I better wash that dye out, good night!

Oh , I did answer you back on my hub! Thanks!

Blake...First my congratulations on hitting the 200 mark. I just hit 100 and it has been a long journey especially when you try to keep the quality up. You humble me greatly by including me with these other great hubbers...I'm just a novice at the craft. The fan mail you left me also rocked. I wonder if you have a neck brace in your shop that I could borrow to support my big head (LOL). I love your perspective on all of this and keep recognizing the hubbers that you enjoy. It's great for them and it's fun for you. Much Thanks! WB


blake4d profile image

blake4d 6 years ago from Now Rising Out of Phoenix Arizona Earthlings Author

Well WB some folks work all their lives to hone the muscles that it takes to have technical abilities and what most call talent. But all the practice and skills are fine. Yet there are qualities that you either have or you don't, timing can't really be taught, originality can't be learned, and humor - well you can learn to look funny, but that just makes you funny looking.

My point somewhere in there is that novice or not, you have the natural nack for pointing out the obvious, yet making it sound like you just invented it. And to me you are quite skilled at satire and humor, not everybody makes me actually laugh...and I bet no matter what you are doing, you tend to have that streak of original thinking. That's the stuff that you can't teach, must be in the gene pool.

Or after enough drinking. LOL.

You deserve all the praise you get, I have heard the same from quite a few other hub writers...so my decision to list you was based not on opinion, but by public poll as well. You Keepa keepa on hubbing. Writing rocks. Blake4d

P.S. Neck brace on order, you'll have to use an spare tire or something till it arrives.

Woohoo Happy 200th, Blake! It seems that you and I read from different hubbers and there are only three from this list that I am familiar with, so I will make a solid trip around all ten profiles mentioned here to see what is awesome about your picks! Great tribute hub - nice to see other writers passin' praise and links around.

Blake, many of the commentators wont find me worthwhile of the second rank if they venture on my hub page .. Lol!! I suppose its only if they read my comments that they would find some rationality in your selection .. Lol again!!

kimberlyslyrics 6 years ago

Blake I never saw this before

And how can i not choose to adore

What a support you have been

Your so many things I have seen

As a writer you inspire

To these Hubs Id be the buyer

Wish we could sit just to talk

Never shut up never break our walk

Look at this kindness you do show

But your possession of integrity i did know

There are no words to thank this mention

So I best say this in a form of a question;

Whatever gave you the gift of a pure soul

Is the very essence of which is set as my goal

Blake I dont want to leave

So just throw me your keys

I just gotta know

Your secrets that don't show

Learn what Blake likes

Then begin to write

Be my next Hub

Profiling your love

For all things good

Just placed as should

Never goodbye

Only Hello

That with such a thank you

You are one of very few

Your mold is broken

Not a word is this joking

except that maybe

this comment, crazy?

Couldn't care as i take

My good friend, the one and only, Mr Blake
