'100 Great Hubs Chosen By 100 Great Hubbers'.... (Please Participate)

    ryankettposted 7 years ago

    Hi All,

    For my 100th hub (yes I know that I only have 62, but my 100th hub is only about 4-6 weeks away!)....

    I will be featuring 100 hubs, chosen by 100 different hubbers, with upto 50 words by each explaining why they chose that hub.

    Please get involved people, you will each be getting a link to your profile, and your chosen favourite hub will get a link too - so you will be helping out another hubber.

    This is a win, win, win situation! I need:-

    - The link to your favourite hub (on this thread, please do not send me emails). Obviously this can not be your own hub people!
    - 50 words max explaining why that is your favourite hub (So keep it concise, 50 x 100 = 5000 words - plenty enough, if not too much!).


    I will start. My favourite hub is:-

    http://hubpages.com/hub/George-Best-The … elfast-Boy   (By BadCompany)

    Reason:-

    This hub was one of the first I read on hubpages a couple of months ago, it inspired me to write a tribute to my own favourite ever player Zinedine Zidane.  (30 Words)



    REMEMBER NO MORE THAN 50 WORDS PLEASE GUYS!!!

    Hi Ryan. This is a very interesting hub topic. I'd like to recommend this hub by guidebaba -


    http://hubpages.com/hub/How-I-earn-500- … -from-home

    I chose this hub because it was also the first hub I read and commented on when I first came to Hubpages. It's quite a comprehensive list with a lot of links, giving the reader a lot of options on how he or she can earn online. Hope this makes it to your top 100 hubs. smile

    1. profile image0
      ryankettposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      The first 100 links will make the hub, as long as they are not repeated.... Im not going to choose them, you lot are big_smile.... so your hub selection will be the 3rd on the list.... First come first serve wink

    Unemployment was a big issue for us a few months back ,hence my question ,born out of frustration.
    PGrundy  responded with the above Hub tells it like it is, and explains the nonsense with factual experiences, validating and offering hope at the same time.

      Hi Ms Chievous.

      Would you mind just adding a few more words to that? I have:

      "I really like Ripplemakers hubs.. hard for me to choose one because they are all so positive and inspirational"

      Could we have something like:-

      "I really like Ripplemakers hubs.. hard for me to choose one becuase they are all so positive and inspirational, but I chose this one because *Insert here*"

      Its just that the category title will show (well, already shows) the title of the hub, and your review comes directly below.

      Sorry to be a pain, thanks....

      (By the way, anybody can change their reason/review once it is published).

    I love this hub because it's very well written, it's down to earth and honest, but most of all because it's got soul. You can feel the presence of PearlDiver in each word, sentence and paragraph. Most humbling!

      'k. I think...go to the poage of the poem you love, up at the top is the address, use your mouse, right click on it,it should turn all one color, then click on copy. then come on over here, and click the normal way, "post a reply," then right click again and click paste. that should put the link there.

      lol looks like you didnt get my email reply in time, sorry.

      Unfortunately I can only allow 1 hub per hubber, because the hubs are called '100 great hubs chosen by 100 great hubbers'...... if I allowed you to have 4, I would have to call it '100 great hubs chosen by 96 great hubbers'.... and that would sound a bit crap lol

      I know that its really hard to choose just one, but afraid your gonna have to tongue

      Each hub gets its own text box, so the hubber that chooses it needs to write a line or two about why they chose it (up to 50 words).

    Most of the choices given by my fellow bloggers are indeed a cut above the rest and most of them are very popular and brilliant. But I'm more of appreciative with knowledge-based hub, something which is very useful:

    http://hubpages.com/hub/USEFUL-PROVERBS … NYTPARAGAS

      Thanks for your selection....

      Like I have said GeneralHowitzer, this is your playground. Every one of the first 100 hubs to be nominated by hubbers get chosen for the list.... I have no influence on peoples selection whatsoever.... I wanted to make this a community thing.

      But..... you need to write upto 50 words that you would like to be given as your reason for picking / a tribute to the hub. I am quoting each hubber under their selection, and providing the hubbers with a link to their profile.

      So get me the 50 words and I will put you straight into the hub now wink

        Kudos in advance to your 100th hub...and thanks too...

        Here's the tribute and its consists of 45 words way below the 50 cap.

        This hub really overwhelmed and humbled me, although I took his hubs lightly at first, I soon realized that after reading it my knowledge I accumulated was so little. This hub was made by Sir Rony Paragas  a Minister, sincere friend and a good brother.

    If I had to pick a favorite, I don't think I could--there are so many wonderful hubs here!smile

    I picked this one, because it was a fitting(and funny) tribute to a hubber who most around here knew and loved....goldentoad aka/raiderfan.  Tom wrote it and put it on the night GT left, and, in Tom's unique style, he made it his farewell hub to goldentoad...

    (I hope it's okay to add this one--I know I'm a litle biased here, lol)

      Yes thats fine, I have no right to choose the hubs, any hub is acceptable unless it is your own smile (and it is not yours, it is your hubbies).

    @ryankett - Ok, well since I have to choose one, I'd have to say one of my favorites is HubPages for Dummies A to Z - Part 1

    I loved how creative freelanceworld was when he crafted that Hub - I believe it even made a newsletter. But you could tell he really put a lot of work into it from layout to content.
