New Accolade

    I was really surprised to notice a new accolade today - for 1,000 Hubs in featured status simultaneously. Yippeee! Thank you, HubPages!

    With some consistent work, most of my Hubs are featured and I am thankful for that. Keeping Hubs fresh, updated, and interesting can help our readership and incomes increase as well as keep us writers entertained and engaged.  I hope many more Hubbers can achieve this accolade and enjoy 6 years with HubPages as I have. It seems like only yesterday that I joined -- Still having fun and meeting interesting new writers!

    Best to Hubbers, Staff and Readers!

      Hey Patty!

      Yes, we've added an Accolade to commemorate the number of Featured Hubs one has- we think it's worth celebrating, as getting a Hub Featured is no small feat. wink

      Our Accolade FAQ: http://hubpages.com/faq/#accolades

      MAD props on having 1,000 Hubs Featured. That's... just... insane.

        Thanks, I appreciate it! - I just followed you and saw that also have an accolade, so you are headed for more Featured Hubs, too.

      Patty I have never read one of your hubs where I did not enjoy the experience and learn something worthwhile. One Thousand. On that count I worry about your need to find other healthy interests. But you make it obvious you have many. For this old man, find some time to do nothing. We are enriched by you and need to enrich you. Thank you for your service to all of us. (sometimes I like to think of a God sitting in a big throne, with a long beard and mystic clouds  --- with a sparkle twinkle in his left eye, because he as made something as wonderful as you)

        Those are very nice words, Eric! I am only glad that I can bring some information or entertainment to others. That's something good to ease the way of the world, I think. And Thank God I can tap talents I discover.

        I really do do some "nothing" everyday, else I could not survive! Thanks for the advice.

        Thanks moonlake; I have had six years at it - that's a long time. Congratulations on your own accoloade for featured Hubs!

      I was feeling pretty chuffed myself when I woke this morning to find myself awarded nice new blue plaque for having 10 featured hubs!

      Of course I am a little deflated now to hear about your 1,000...

      Only joking :-)
      I have read a lot of your hubs and they are excellent --- reaching 1,000 is a brilliant achievement and you deserve it!

      1. Patty Inglish, MS profile image88
        Patty Inglish, MSposted 3 years ago in reply to this

        Thanks, damian0000. I was pretty surprised myself. Your 10 is a good start toward greater numbers, to be sure. 1,000 featured Hubs does take some consistent work, but it weaves itself into one's life quite well.

        I will surely give your Hubs a look!

    I just noticed mine, too! What a nice surprise. big_smile I had to go to FAQ to figure out what it was.

    Unfortunately, it's broken down into increments like most accolades. So although my accolade says 25,   actually all 40 of my hubs are featured. Congrats, Patty for reaching 1,000. That is amazing.

    Thank you hubpages for acknowledging our work and giving us more incentive to keep writing.

    1. Patty Inglish, MS profile image88

    I just noticed this "new" one and I am delighted that I have one, too!  Mine is for having 100 featured Hubs!  I'm proud of that.  It's another way that HubPages recognizes us for our hard work.  Thanks!

    I was pleasantly surprised when I saw 500 featured hubs accolade on my profile. I can only hope to one day be as prolific a writer as yourself and I often follow your work as it keeps getting better and better.
    Congratulations Ms. Inglish.

      Thanks for reading my Hubs!  Your own umber of 500 Featured is very good, indeed, so congratulations! You'll have at least 1000 before you are finished.

      It must be wonderful to live in New Zealand and I think it must be great scenery that can spur you to write. Welcome to HubPages! I hope you'll love it enough to write 1,000!

    Wow!  Congrats Patty....now I have even more to admire about you.  I suppose I'll have to write more hubs to get to the 1,000 mark but you have provided an inspiration.

      Hi tillsontitan - I am happy that this can be an inspiration for you - Your Hubs are interesting and entertaining, so it's just a matter of tie for your 1,000!

    Holy moly. 1000 hubs. Wow. You're trying to beat Hal's record?

    1. Patty Inglish, MS profile image88
      Patty Inglish, MSposted 3 years ago in reply to this

      LOL smile Probably not, although over 1800 of mine are featured; the next accolade is at 2000 and I may never get there. But never say never.

      Here's a bigger record - a gentleman whose name I forget has over twice the number of Hubs that Hal wrote. I wonder how many HE can write per month!

        tillsontitanposted 3 years ago in reply to this

        I love HP, I love writing, but somewhere in between I try to squeeze in my life.  God bless you and all those who have so many, many hubs!  The rest of us will just keep trying.  Featured hubs is the key here...write, read, and re-write often helps, I hope wink

        1. Patty Inglish, MS profile image88
          Patty Inglish, MSposted 3 years ago in reply to this

          Updating certainly helped a number of my Hubs! Keep writing when you can. it does take time and some days, I cannot look at a computer screen.smile

        WryLiltposted 3 years ago in reply to this

        Oh my! I don't know if I could do that! Well actually I could probably do it amongst LOTS of sites, but sticking to one topic and one site bores me quickly. I have a short attention span! Kudos to everyone who even passes 500!

          Patty Inglish, MSposted 3 years ago in reply to this

          I don't know if I could keep track of and manage a number of blogs. And the other writing sites are usually kind of confusing,. Wizzley is clear, others confuse me. smile

            WryLiltposted 3 years ago in reply to this

            You have to screw up the first five blogs and then you get the hang of it wink I do agree about writing sites. Squidoo's payment system is ridiculous, Zujava is too clunky, Bukisa is too low quality...

    This is so great to hear, and you deserve many accolades for being such a role model for us, Patty.  I have a long way to go for the 1,000 mark, but I did get the accolade for having more than 100. And I'm very motivated to get the next few numbers.
