Writing a Hub Nobody Wants to Read

Please don’t read this hub

Please don’t read this hub. I am trying to get the lowest score ever for a hub.

I would love to have kept it below 10 hits, but seeing your here it means that you have pushed it above double figures. Don’t feel guilty, you were not to know. I am not going to loose any sleep over it. It’s impossible to unwind hits on the internet, I know, I have checked.

Once you have clicked that is it. Of course, if you had a time machine, or were Superman, and could fly backwards around the planet at supersonic speed to re-wind time, I am stuck with your hit. But now you are here you might as well read the rest of my hub - it would not be polite to leave without indulging me.

It is actually very hard to write a hub that nobody wants to read, because what ever the subject you pick and however bizarre and off the wall it is, there will always be an audience for it. You name it - the strangest animals such as the Axolotl and the dumbo octopus, and the most useless information ever such as a giraffe can go without water longer than a camel can or a coat hanger is 44 inches long if straightened can all be found on the web, and what’s more people actually look at this information. And, if its not on the web, Amazon will have a book about or you can buy one on eBay.

Even the last page on the internet has its fans. I am fan too. The question is how much more ‘information’ can we load on to the internet before it reaches saturations point? There must be a finite point where the one last hub will break the camels back and the whole lot crashes. What will the internet addicts do then?

To be truthful, I use to be a six or seven hour a day man, but I am in remission at the moment. The patches help, so do the updates, but I now steer well clear of any fixes. I use to surf the web just for the sake of it and go to my next page, straight from the last. I was hooked. You don’t realise you are until its too late. If you are reading this page of the internet, you defiantly have got a major addiction.

Do yourself a favour and jump to the very last page of the internet now (the link is below), and then turn off your computer and walk away. Yes, keep walking until you reach the front door of your house. Now open the door wide. Welcome to the real world and fresh air. Seriously, internet addiction is a growing problem, and if you think you have a problem with the amount of time you spend starring in to cyberspace, you really need to seek professional help.

However, it is hard to turn it off when you have such excellent hubs to read other than this one. There is some fantastic topics on here and they grow daily. Even I have been tempted to push the ‘envelope’ and come up with some stunning and unusual hubs.

Many have had very few hits, but they are there if people want to seek out bizarre topics such as top tips for callings banks and why do we have too many mobile/cell battery chargers in our kitchen drawers. They are timeless and hitless classics destined to stay in the darkly lit and unpopular section of this invisible library we call the internet.

Well, that it. I have just reach the compulsory minimum 600 words required to make this Hub acceptable for publication, and wasted a few minutes of your life. As with unwanted hits, that time is impossible to wind back.

Thank you for reading this hub and thank you for your un-wanted hit.

Sorry I read this as I wanted to discover what the 'alien frog creature' in the photo was called.

Might let you off that one - his name is Alvin the Axolotl not 'alien frog creature' he said.

Nice tactic. You know how curious people are don't you? Tell us we don't want to 'reed' something and of course we have to read it. Shame on you, this was a good Hub.

Hi Midnight Oil!

I'm sorry I came to this Hub, that I read it right through, that I voted it up, that I rated it 'Funny', and that I actually liked it.

You'll have to try harder next time. :-)

All the best, Camlo

Hey Midnight Oil, I bumped on your Hub and read it. I am sorry! How is your lowest scoring hub doing? It's quite topical at the moment with this Squidoo transformation. I bet you're no longer the worst author here! :)
