I wish there was a secret to accolades.. However all of my accolades were through dedication and hard work. As soon as I started hubs I was extremely dedicated because I wanted to start making some sort of income. I still have a long way to go, because I don't make much on here... To answer your question I just commented a lot on different hubs (by hopping hubs). Tried to type new hubs as fast as I possibly could. Also answer questions anybody asks. As a tip for you, I have noticed that if you take time to comment on peoples hubs they will usually follow you in return. (if you were looking for followers.) I usually stayed up through peak hours of the night working on all of this. I look foward to reading more of your hubs.
