I have been on HubPages for 6 years now, and its been quite an interesting journey to say the least. I am so thrilled, because I noticed I had finally hit 1 million views, something I can't say I anticipated ever really! I am sharing this in part, to encourage people to hang in there, and see where things go because you never know what can come from what you write and share here.
I feel so thankful to the community here and the friends I have made over time, some of which have come and gone over the years. So many commented or gave other support, and HubPages has given this platform and I am feel very encouraged to see this milestone! I am not sure what the next one is, but I look forward to trying to reach that one! Thank you HubPages, and thank you friends and everyone on here that has ever read my hubs, answers, posts, etc. I truly appreciate you! Feeling encouraged, and wanted to share.
Hello oceansnsunsets!!! Congratulations!!! A million is a telling accolade. You definitely have a knack for expression in written form. It's great to return to HP to such encouragement. Been on forced retirement for the past month. Talk to you soon...
To TirelessTraveler, Brakel2, BarbaraKay, SallyBea and WriterFox, thank you so much.
Brakel2, I had a friend invite me here years ago, and I am so glad for that! Since then, life in general, and the contests HubPages has had have inspired me, among other things I am sure. Looking forward to many more years!
To Examiner-1, Liesl5858, Dilipchandra12, Peachpurple, Christy Kirwan, RebekahELLE, Janshares, Crisantonio, VenkatachariM, HawaiianScribe, MLMorgan, Word 55, Nonaweeks, Joween18 and Shinkicker, thank you so much for your congrats and encouragement.
What a great community we all have here.
ML Morgan, yes it does feel like home, good point! A great place to write for sure
To Word 55, congratulations to you on your first 10,000! Its encouraging and helps to want to keep it going.
Congrats! You were one of the first friends (followers) I made when I joined HP some three years ago. You have always been so supportive of my Hubs, and I have turned to you for advice more than once! Thank you, friend, and it won't be long before you have another million under your belt!
Hi Mary, well you are one of my favorites on here, for sure! I recall when you first joined, and I was glad to become friends and start reading your hubs about all the various topics to from your house that moved on wheels to your dog and trips, etc. There is so much to write about and I love that I make friends like you on here, and we can keep in touch and see the changes in our lives, new experiences, etc.
Thank you so much for your kind words my friend, and you have been an invaluable source of information and advice to me over these years! I look forward to the next million, can't wait! Looking forward to many more years on here with friends like you
Dressage Husband, I would say keep up the good work, and always be moving forward one way or another on HubPages. Sometimes, I am working on hubs, gathering photos, researching, or creating better hubs that have seemed to have gone unfeatured, etc. Sometimes, for engagement I have added a poll, and some other little tidbit, and that is all it needed. You will get a groove before long, but are off to a great start. I was encouraged along a few times from the contests they had here, that was pretty inspiring to me! Wishing you the very best here! Thanks for the kind words.
With the event of me approaching 1 million hub views in a few days or so, this gives me the chance to reflect back and see what I did to increase my traffic and revenues through Hubpages.What really started the ball...
After writing for HubPages for about 16 months, I have finally received 1 million views to my hubs today! Times seemed bleak after the feb. panda, but I held in, I'm glad I did not leave. Thanks HubPages!
