Which hubbers have influenced you the most?

    Now, I'm not asking which have helped you the most, but rather, which hubbers do you believe have had the most influence on you here - good, bad, or otherwise. smile

      those that have influenced me the most are a huge part of why I choose to stay here and write because they have helped me so much.

      and they continue to help. I read all of relache and darkside's how to hubs, sunforged, paul edmonson, adore uninvited writer's opinions and numerous others. it's a great community of people and once you start naming people, others come to mind also!
      but I'm sure I wouldn't be here if I hadn't read the above hubbers hubs.

    good question, many have but being new, rmcrayne helped me and showed me a great deal.  Even held my hand for my first post and hubmob, I admired her Hubs and consider her a friend now, her and Mighty Mom cause well, she just kicks ass

    sunforgedposted 6 years ago

    Although there are many Hub writers who have showed me a lot here, both by example and direct input in forums (DS,Relache,Knowles,Misha,MW,)..when I think about the answer would be Lissie, she is everywhere! , I run into her posts and articles all over the net at a  regular basis, she uses the same avatar and I swear I run into it at new places a couple of times every single week!

    It proves to me that working and writing everyday can lead to a significant presence even on this massive internet

    Dale Mazurekposted 6 years ago

    This is a very hard question to answer but I will.

    So many hubbers have influenced me but none more than Darkside and Relaches.

    Those 2 are a great source of help but they also tell it like it is.  They pull no punches but yet continue to gain respect.

    Many more have gained my respect like Knowles, Dame scribe and so forth.  Just too many to list.

    It would have to be Paul Edmondson.  Without him, there wouldn't be a HubPages.  Also, I got my invite to the site from him.

    Cagsilposted 6 years ago

    I am inspired by the entire community of hubbers around me. I feel like I could ask questions of each of them and get their own take on just about everything.

    I have had my differences with some, but I'm confident that as an individual person they can put aside their petty issues and assist in my learning.

    I take pride in everything I learn from others.

    So, with that said- I Pledge Thanks To All Hubbers!

    I have to say that relache has been extremely helpful to me on my second tour here at Hubpages. I'm sure she's not aware of it, but I have read most of her posts all over this forum for the past 3 days, and I have learned more from her postings than the FAQ's and help section here at Hubpages.

    Relache, you don't know me, but thank you for all your help and your overwhelming kindness you show to everyone. Its a true inspiration.

  11. yoshi97 profile image89
    yoshi97posted 6 years ago

    Relache, Darkside, and Mark Knowles, ya took the miserable little dust speck known as Yoshi and taught him the ropes of Hubpages through all of your postings and hubs.

    Currently, Sunforged is my mentor, without his knowing, as he has very strong knowledge on how SEO works through Hubpages and I listen to everything he says intently.

    There's also another - John - I wish I could remember his name here. He's shown up on my radar the past few days and has had some really good incite on how to get more bang for the buck out of HP. smile

    As for my inspiration to keep writing ... too many to list ... So many hubbers have brought me from a bad day to a laughter that allowed me to continue writing that I couldn't begin to thank them all.

    That's why I wrote this thread ... to see to it that some of the people who work hard to make HP a better experience for all get some of the congratulations they deserve. smile

    jess can help uposted 6 years ago

    There are many of the hubs that I really like reading, but for me, there are two main hubs that I search for first.  It's because of the page content that I am strongly drawn to. Lyricsingray is one because my background is similar to hers as a recovering addict. the other one is myownworld because of her interests on world conditions, and suffering people. Their hubs always affect me deeply.

      Aw choke, that is sweet of you. Your hub was one of the first I looked at in the beauty range, and it inspired me to start writing here at hubpages. Frogdropping has also inspired me, an amazing writer, and Ryankett helped me no end, along with others who have no idea. Irohner always having good sound advice.

    Absolutely everyone here has had a positive influence for me. It's impossible to choose but to start the list...
    - MightyMom inspires by her sheer volume
    - McRayne inspires me in her subject matter
    - GPage...with her heart
    - James Watkins...his clarity with a difficult subject matter
    - Scarytaff...his friendship
    - Ernestub and Mark Knowles...teaching me to lighten up

    and the list goes on, that's the great thing about HP, everyone who participates offers something to each of us.

      Marisa Wrightposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      I notice a big difference between the way the Hubs are written and the way she writes in the forums.  Plus a difference in the level of knowledge.

      But that's off topic...

      I don't know that any Hubber has influenced me, but I'm grateful to Mark Knowles, Darkside, Relache and Misha for sharing their knowledge so generously.  Lissie and I were newbies together but she threw herself into internet entrepreneurship and I've learned so much following her journey.

      More recently I'm finding Sunforged a mine of information.

        I make the time to read the advice Sunforged dispenses in the forum.

        I am also impressed with your sensible tips and advice Marisa.

        And Frogdropping and lrohner could be the same person with the common sense approach they have towards life and online publishing.

      I agree completely.  Relache pulls no punches, and I can say the same for you.

    Mike Lickteigposted 6 years ago

    The most influential hubbers for me have been:

    Waynet and Ben Zoltak, for demonstrating so effectively how words and images can be fused into a single creature called a hub.  They provided a ton of inspiration with their hubs on drawing and painting.  You are both great writers and artists, guys.

    Lyricsingray and Ghost Whisper77, for writing with feeling and passion--every time they write something.  They can wring an emotional response from me like no one else, and they inspire me to speak from my soul, as well.

    Ben and Ghost get mentioned here twice for continuing to read and comment on niche topics that probably bores the living crap out of them--thanks for stifling the yawns while lending your support and encouragement, my friends!
