No Published Hubs

Why No Published Hubs?

Recently I was browsing my list of favorite hubbers. Anyone registered with HubPages can browse their list of favorite hubbers, but not my list. Each column on the favs page is clickable; we can sort our idolized writers by Author, HubScore, Hubs, Followers, and Latest Hub. This page is a slick bit of web programming.

Anyway, I sorted by Latest Hub and was surprised to learn that 12 of the hubbers I follow have never published a hub. Not one.

For whatever reason, I elected to follow these folks based on some criteria other than prolificness. Shucks, 6 of them have not even uploaded an avatar. They haven't taken the time to show us who they are.

Who are these people: no published hubs and no avatar.

EvolutionGuy on HubPages

EvolutionGuy has much to say, but restricts his comments to other folks' hubs and also his profile. He believes strongly in the power of science (as do I) and he's on a mission to set us all straight and offer us the benefit of his education and study. Good for him!

We suspect he could pound out some interesting and thought-provoking hubs. Why I elected to follow him, I cannot recall. Perhaps he dropped a particularly cogent comment on one of my hubs.

EvolutionGuy has the most followers for any of the Hubbers I follow who have published no hubs: 23. Twenty-three other writers saw fit to jump on his bandwagon, despite the fact that he has published no hubs himself. Imagine the following he might garner when he actually begins writing.

EvolutionGuy has 23 followers but has published no hubs.

kwalters on HubPages

kwalters tells us, in his profile, that he is extremely busy. We take him at his word since he has not had time to publish any hubs. He's been a member for over 9 months; perhaps he's saving up a mountain of hubs, a whirlwind of words, and voluminous verbiage. Maybe he plans to publish his first 100 hubs all at the same time. I wonder if he is merely a vestige of a Second Life experiment.

sreejit on HubPages

Hubber sreejit represents a true outlier. He (she?) has published no hubs and added nothing to his profile. We know virtually zero about the mysterious sreejit. Nine other hubbers along with me anxiously await some feedback from sreejit.

sreejit: give us a nugget! Tell us your life story. Publish a profile. What are your hopes, dreams, aspirations, favorite yogurt flavors and shoe size? We wanna know.

free-best-wallpap on HubPages

One of my favorite least-prolific hubbers has to be free-best-wallpap. This dude knows what he wants. He needed a free pseudo-backlink (I don't know if 'pseudo-backlink' is a real Internet word: I think I just made it up) so he created a HubPages profile and posted the URL of his first love. He wants us all to know about his pride and joy. His wallpaper web site surely takes up all his time, therefore he cannot fritter away his day publishing hubs for us to enjoy.

I confess that I've not visited his best wallpaper web site. It might be extremely effective at communicating all things wallpaper. I recently stripped wallpaper from a wall in my house. Perhaps the job would have been easier had I surfed to his site.

Conclusion

Hopefully these unpublished hubbers will be able to join us in our quest to flood the Internet with verbs, nouns, and gerunds. We need all the help we can get: at least I do.

Should you bump into free-best-wallpap, sreejit, Evolution Guy, kwalters, or any of my low-output idols at Starbucks, buy them a mocha grande frappe thingy and offer them encouragement. Give them Hubspitality.

I have three or four people like that. I followed them because they are people I know and they came here through clicking on one of my "try writing at HubPages" links.

They may have thought they had to join to read or comment, I do not know..

Maybe these folks are just figments, nicomp. Or aliens. Or creations of your fertile imagination.

I probably went about nine months before I published my first hub. Not really sure why. Busy, I guess. Lack of ideas. Now I'm starting to get more ideas, which helps. I still have less than 10 hubs so far (one in the process of being written).

Boy, if they'd only tickle that gerund spot, maybe we'd see some results! You think?

I sometimes feel a bit sorry for those kind of hubbers, cause I do not know if they want to write but lost a computer or a house, or a friend with a computer. Perhaps they have lost their direction. Who knows?

I need to go see who is nicomp and Garrett. I'm on the hopper now.

I noticed the same thing... I thought they had deleted all their hubs which made me follow them earlier. It´s sad but there are people who decide to unpublish their hubs... thankfully there are others like nicomp who keeps publishing more great hubs for our amusement :)

Thanks nicomp!

Hello Garrett Mickley,

yes! You are probably right. Because not everybody, is as software savvy or smart as the rest of you here a hubpages, or perhaps they are in some time crunch etc. and simply forgot, they have singup here and are causing others like yourselves, to become “very troubled” over this phenomenon. They could be still learning, now would not that be something. What! Nicomp, do you feel is happening here on this hub and in the forum.

It just maybe that some of them, could be having some sort of crisis, in their life or are no longer alive to do some posting--

Nice hub very enjoyable Thanks.

These hubbers are not hubbers at all but commentators. Some of them even have fans!
