Top New Hubbers Of 2011

Source

What started as a simple hub, which formally announced new hubbers, has now became a tradition on HubPages. Each year writers' read the work of many new hubbers and vote for the top 100 of that year. This past year has been full of joy and sorrow. Millions still lost their homes, jobs were far and few in between and the news had the audacity to say sells were up, but yet Walm-Mart and Sears are closing over a 100 stores.


We at HubPages lost one of our nearest and dearest friends Earnesthub in October. At times he was controversial but many of us counted him as a friend. His legacy at HubPages will not be forgotten, his hubs still remain in our community. We will miss you.


On the joyful side a 99 year-old man chose to divorce his 96 year-old wife over a 60 year-old love affair. Our troops finally came home after being in Iraq for an Eternity and quite a few of us long time hubbers were banned from the forums either for using our other account and not abiding by the rules or yapping our gums and getting involved with a heated conversation. Happy to report many of us have a wonderful sense of humor and bounce back like troopers!


It is now time for his Royal Highness Website Examiner to bequeath his Royal crown to another new hubber. Are they male or female? The parliament has spoken and votes were cast, the count was endless. Thank you to all who took time to contribute and vote.


Counting down to the number one new hubber. Here are HubPages top hubbers, hand chosen and picked by their peers. You will find that there will be hubbers who joined at the very end of 2010 or the very ending of 2011. Don't get your pants in an uproar should you find that there time on Hubpages does not fall into 365 days or simply put 12 months in a year. All of these hubbers deserve recognition for writing well done!

Honorable Mentions

So many votes so much fun, my work was not completely done. Need I say that these hubbers ran close with others and this year I will not disclose how many votes, but let's just say they need to be mentioned. Should you see a name not spelled correctly please drop me a line and all will be fine. I was so excited to give a gift this New Year's Eve to all of the hubbers that I decided that I would link their hubs next year. In January of course! Happy New Year's and Congratulations to all of the winners. I wonder who they will be in 2012?

Hey AEvans, I guess you don't remember, but will have to look up your own hubs to find out. I don't need to bequeath my Crown, as you put it, because one this hub is about the New Hubbers and that's not a Crown I ever had. As for my Royal Crown for the King of the Forums? I'm not sure I will be giving that up so easily, nor do I think that I will be giving up my other Hubbie Award, as the most likely to get banned from the forums.

I do appreciate your thinking that it was my Crown that New Hubbers would obtain, but it's the wrong Crown. LOL! Congrats to Homesteadbound! Voted up and Awesome! :)

This really is kind and generous of you to take the time to accept our nominations, sort through them (with the help of Excel, I guess) and publish them. I am so thrilled to see that all the names of people I nominated appear on this page.

Homesteadbound #1/Cindy Murdoch #60 is so deserving of her number one spot. She works tirelessly, produces top-notch interesting hubs, and is so supportive of so many hubbers. I myself am thrilled and actually shocked to be #18. This is tremendously meaningful since peers selected us.

Again, thanks for compiling this annual list.

I was not even aware of how all this gets done or voted on--so maybe next year I can figure it out??

AEvans profile image

AEvans 4 years ago from SomeWhere Out There Author

@ All it has been brought to my attention that there was some error on this hub. Thanks to all of you I was able to make corrections.

Placement is determined on votes so hubbers were placed into the correct position. Everyone's names were placed on an excel spreadsheet so duplication had taken place, which I apologize for. There were e-mails that were sent that had the actual hubbers names placed as votes. I did not check each individual so I did not realize that a couple of hubbers were one in the same. There were concerns about longevity however I will not remove those

hubbers that have already been recognized by their peers.

Next year here is what will happen.

1. When casting your vote for your favorites for 2012 please provide their pen name and not their actual personal name, unless of course that is their pen name.

2. 16 months or less will be the criteria for 2012. This gives those an opportunity who came last quarter of 2011 to be placed into the top hubbers for 2012.

I will of course remind everyone at the end of this year and have it duly noted on the excel spreadsheet for 2012 which is safely tucked away for another 11 months. I hope this clears the air for all of those concerned.

Should you have any other questions or concerns. You are welcome to e-mail me and I will be happy to answer. :)

Congrats Homesteadbound on your much deserved recognition by the hubpage community. Missolive is also a fantastic writer. Many writers on this list are definitely showing a lot of heart in their hubpages. There are still many that I have not come across. I am excited to visit and congratulate those hubbers as well. This is a great milestone. I think you guys need to pat yourselves for a job well done. Looking forward to many more great hubs from my fellow awesome hubbers. Best wishes for the new year.

AEvans - Thank you for sharing this with the community. Its so important to recognize talented hubbers. Thank you again for sharing this hub. Its a great source of motivation for other hubbers.

Congratulations Homesteadbound for being bestowed the golden crown, you so deserve it. I am honored to be amongst the Top 100 chosen for 2011. Just to think that out of 250,000.00 or more hubbers to be in amongst the Top 100 that is simply amazing.

I thank you all for voting me in, you are all so wonderful and talented scribes. May we all continue to express ourselves through 2012 and write, write and write some more. My Muse awaits me with my Quill he is waving in front of my nose. I am getting ready to lay some black down on white real soon.

CloudExplorer profile image

CloudExplorer 4 years ago from New York City

Hubpages is a sensational place to meet people & to author your written works. As a new hubpages author what stood out to me most at the very tail end of 2011 was how people communicate here. I was blown away at the integrity of this social community, how the staff help others, how the Hubpages Elite help new comers, and how people are so kind to one another for the most part.

Making communications with real people is my true intention on here as a writer, & is what matters most to me on hubpages.

I'm definitely happy to see that so many people have become successful here in their writing as well as myself, but I just love the connections we're all making with one another much more. Reading so many hubs in just 4 months has changed my entire outlook on digital life altogether.

We do have hope after all in a digital sense or should I say on the web, this is my overall conclusion and 2012 is going to be the year I redefine myself both digitally & in the real world thanks to hubpages.

I would like to say thanks for writing such a great hub @ AEvans, and for sharing it with us all, but most of all I wanna thank all the hubpages staff, developers, owners, and hubpages Elite for giving it their all to make such a powerful network happen.

Last but not least I thank all of my fellow hubbers for giving little ole me a chance, to get a single message across these digital wires, to possibly make a difference somewhere else. Much love, joy, peace & blessing to all for 2012.

(or do I not count because I'm only an 'honorable mention' - you people make me sick)

AFvans: As someone who's name is not spelled right.. I would just like to thank you for spending the time to put this list together as I recognized the hard work that you have put into this hub. I think this is a great tribute to writers in general and a wonderful way to really show the character of so many talented people on the list or as honorable mentions. There is not need to correct my name... I am happy with it just the way it appears! again... thank you for the honor and the surprise.

Dave, I hope all recognize my own (more sarcastic) remarks were an attempt at expressing the same sentiment you expressed more directly. Thanks to any who suggested my name be included at all and big thanks to AEvans for putting this all together.

Wow. I am so honored to be on this list! I am so happy that Cindy got the #1 spot and also seeing all of the other hubbers that I voted for on this list! Thank you, AEvans. This is such a great idea and a wonderful hub. Thank you for sharing. Congrats to everyone who is on the list and I can't wait to check out the ones I haven't been acquainted with. Mahalo to everyone who voted.

What an idiotic thing for Frank to say. You will find my name listed all over hubpages in comments or referenced in hubs where I am FloraBreenRobinson or FloraBreen (Breen is a middle name only, not part of my first name) and no comment at all from me about the mistake. Other times like I did here, I just gently corrected the mistake from within a comment about the hub itself in general.

To All: With over 600 e-mails from those who voted. I apologize if there was error in the names. I took the names as they were spelled by your peers and placed them on the spreadsheet. I am glad that all of you who had found error brought it to my attention so that it could be corrected. I already have volunteers for the end of this year to assist me with cross-checking all of the information for 2012 and answering the list of e-mails. This tradition is growing! Thanks for the kudos and to all who made it, once again CONGRATULATIONS! :)

i appreciate being on this list, but I'm not sure i'm a new hubber. Even though I've written 90% of my hubs and gained 95% of my followers in 2011, I actually wrote my first hub in July of 2010.

Julianna,

Thank you for working countless hours during the holiday season to pull this all together. Knowing that this all started as a fun, simple list . . . it is so cool that is has become something that hubbers are very passionate about. You've created a "really important monster" here. I cannot tell you how honored I am to be on the list. As this endeavor continues to grow and becomes even more difficult to pull together, I look forward to assisting you in the years to come. Congratulations to everyone for a job well done!

Sharyn

I forgot to say thanks for all your work, Julianna! I can only imagine the time this hub must have taken... and so close to the holidays, to boot. Anyway, it's a fantastic contribution to the community and I know we all really appreciate it. Happy new year to you.

Here I am up late again. I was asleep but woke up and can't get back to sleep. I want everyone to read Sunshine's 100th hub and look very carefully at Frank's comment to her. She thought he was being funny, but now we can see he was dead serious. If I wanted to lose every supporter I ever had here on hubpages and every supporter I might have had on this site, I would make exactly the comments he has made. He sounds like he thinks he is a better writer than Shakespeare and how dare he be mentioned among mere mortals...

I wish I hadn't made any comment at all until after he wrote his comment. I would have left my name spelled incorrectly like it is most of the time. I've even been called Flora robertson before. Really.

This is a hub about encouraging people to read the names on this list, Frank. It is a compliment to be on this page. It says, hey, check out these writers.

But your comment says go to hell people. All I care about is me.

Angie Jardine 4 years ago from Cornwall, land of the eternally youthful mind ...

Hi AEvans ... I nearly missed this! New hubber VendettaVixen was kind enough to point out that I had actually made the list. I didn't believe her until she sent me the link.

At number 100 I feel immensely privileged to have made the list at all in my first year on HP and I'm very grateful for all your hard work that went into compiling it.

It is a real boost especially to find that I am on there with so many of HP's most experienced and prolific writers, many of whom I follow.

To Homesteadbound ... well done ... you are a worthy winner.

I wish you, AEvans and all of my fellow listees and Honourable Mentions a very happy and industrious 2012

To All of who have commented in the last 46 hours and you know who you are. Thank you for the comments and this task has been a joy to do. This year I will post on FB giving those who do not visit the forums an opportunity to vote. See I believe instead of 600 e-mails that will more then likely double. I will have a team this year. Congrats again to all of you! :)

MickeySr profile image

MickeySr 4 years ago from Hershey, Pa.

I was going to ask those commenting that they were going to check-out those hubbers who made the list, to please be sure to check-out the 'honorable mentions' as well. I was thinking that I did pretty well making the 'honorable mention' list because I've only been here 4 months, have less than 50 hubs, and only 66 followers so I was comfortable asking all to view the 'honorable mention's' hubs as well - then I checked homesteadbound & missolive's stats . . . they haven't been here any longer than I have but with far more followers. So, what an accomplishment - congratulations to those at the top.

(but still, do get around to checking-out us 'honorable mention' folks as well, please)

Congrats, homesteadbound! what a great hubber! While I had of course kept my fingers crossed for a mention on this list, I didn't expect it, as I do see a ton of great hubbers I have read over the past 5 months I've been on here. I guess it should just give me motivation to work harder and do better! I hope I can! Nice hub!

Hello AE I was just wondering if my previous name Saddlerider1 above can be replaced with my current writers name Vincent Moore? or must I remain in the Top 100 as the Saddlerider1? or maybe you can place in brackets Vincent, he would be pleased to share the limelight:-)
