The hub you're most proud of...

    In the same vein as Mark's "unloved hubs" thread, can everyone share the hub they've written that they are most proud of?  Then we can all pat each other on the backs and be proud together (and maybe Digg/Stumbleupon, etc if we find the hubs worthy, as well). big_smile

    The hub I'm working on right now will definitely be my favorite that I've written, so I'll post the link when I'm done (and hopefully after someone else has piped in, too).

      Helenathegreat:

      This was a great idea... I never thought about the "patting on the back" but it makes sense. It's good for morale... As a new hubber, I don't have much to choose from, but I must say the last hub I finished tonight will probably be the one I am most proud of. See link here:
      http://hubpages.com/hub/Patrick-Swayze-A-Dying-Breed

      Before writing this hub my favorite was http://hubpages.com/hub/Becoming-an-F1-Student

      I would love to hear what you think about my hubs.

    thats a easier one for me then it is for you, I only have 7 hubs!  i am gonna go with my latest as it is what was on my mind most recently. http://hubpages.com/hub/what-is-life-li … h-the-risk

    but the one about our president saying no is a close second.  hurry up and finish allready!

    I know it is a fringe topic, to say the least, but the hub I like best is the one I did on the SS Great Eastern. I had fun doing the additional research I needed, and especially finding photos. And really, this ship was so far ahead of its time it took the rest of the world 50 years to catch up with it. The Great Eastern was one of those great achievements that just sunk back into the mists of time and is largely forgotten.

    I feel utterly embarrassed right now. That will teach me to post my puny hub first.  You pulled all the right things into one hub. some good details, a little action with the whole explosion thing, and some great links and pics. I was just trying to picture what it would be like to be sitting on your deathbed, knowing you might never even get to see the ship you built off on its maiden voyage. Its a wonderful hub!

    I think my Indian Hub is the one I am most proud of : http://hubpages.com/hub/India-Travel--I … ps--Advice Two reasons: 1 it was my first flagship hub and therefore the first time someone paid me to write anything!  But more importantly I have had supportive comments from Indians  on the hub  - so  I must have got something right!

    I remember that hub from a few months ago, Lissie.. it's excellent!  I forwarded it to my friend who's spending her summer there immediately after the first time I read it, and her Indian boyfriend verified that it's a great source of information.

    I am proud of http://hubpages.com/hub/One-World--One- … Difference because I am proud to be involved in this project raising funds for microfinance charity (please go and register your email address - it's free and it will help the charity get more money!)

    I am proud of http://hubpages.com/hub/Goddess-Answers because it impressed Misha, and that means something wink

    I am proud of http://hubpages.com/hub/Web-20-Marketin … Or-Fiction because of all the amazing positive feedback I have had from it.

    And I am proud of my first ever Hub, http://hubpages.com/hub/Business-Ideas-For-Kids, because it just keeps popping up on the first page of Google and bringing in visitors, even though when I look at it now I can see lots of ways it could be much better!

    Thumbs up for Lissie's Hub - that video of crossing the road in India is just hair-raising, but so accurate!

    I think I'm actually most proud of my latest hub: Faith and Imagination
    In fact I've submitted it to the Christian science monitor to see if they'd accept it for publication. If it does get accepted then I'm going to have to take it down from hubpages unfortunately... so hurry up and look at it before its gone

    The hub I'm most proud of is my one about true love. (It's also my most successful.) What can I say I'm a hopeless romantic. wink
    Growing up watching my Grandparents who were devoted to each other changed me as a person. I could never 'settle' in relationships because they showed me how wonderful true love is and how it shapes your life. And I made a promise to myself that if I couldn't have what they had then I would rather be alone with my dog. Lol.
    It hasn't been an easy road. I've been married and divorced and alone with my dog many times but finally my stubborn refusal to settle for anything less than true love has paid off.

    Finally I have the relationship that they had. (Or the humble beginnings of it.)
    May it last as long.

    Here is my take on true love:

    I am most proud of my Toddler Constipation hub, because it's helped people deal with a health problem. Once you've held a screaming, sweating, struggling child in your arms who is trying to go #2, well, this is some handy information is all I can say. smile

    I am also fond of my wheat free hub, because it's another hub helping people with a health problem: http://hubpages.com/hub/Wheat-Free-Diet … hout-Wheat

    Here are my favorites, maybe not my absolute best.  They are not examples of fine research and deep thought, but they are fun smile

    This one is about comparing yourself to others:

    This one is about the negative effects of my extreme coffee and soda addiction:

    It never ceases to amaze me how many good hubs we have here. This is my personal "Best hub" Not because it gets the most traffic or makes the most money, but it was a labor of love and when Jason saw it he offered to turn it into a flagship hub and pay me for a FH. It took hours and hours and hours to put together, but I don't think I will ever do a better one.

    I couldn't agree with you more, Mark. Lately I have been up really late because I am spending more time reading all these great hubs than I am actually writing lol. And I am all over the recipe hub as soon as I submit this!

    I am like many as far as having to choose one particular hub as a favorite but if I narrowed it down to just 1 it would be my latest because it was written during the time hubby and I were over the road in a big truck. I did a lot of writing when I was out there and had so much time to devote to it. I ventured new ground in writing and decided to try short stories. I wrote several and this was mine and hubby's favorite.

    I had already read most of the "favorite" hubs, and have to agree with Amy Jane and Peter's picks, definitely.  And College Politico's too!  Just took a look at Helena's, and wow. She's right, we do have some excellent writers here!

    I don't know about my favorite hub, maybe its my highest traffic hub:  Caucus vs. Primary.  I'll go read my list and see if anything else jumps out at me.  smile

    I'm still quite new here, so chances are this will change in the future, but I just finished one (so new it's still advertising tattoos!) that I've been wanting to work on since I signed up, and I'm really pleased with how it turned out. It's a topic near and dear to my heart, and I'm also more pleased than usual with the aesthetics of it in terms of the mix of text, video, images, links, etc.

    Although it's only gotten about 500 hits since I published it last July (as compared to about 200,000 on The Truth About Wu-Yi Tea, which was published only a month before), I'm proud of my hub on Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified, because it's something few people know about, which affects so many people around the world, who might get help if they had the information available to them.

    Ok, I have to update on this LOL. Since I joined HP, I have created hubs that were pretty plain and simple just because I did not have a clue about all the capsules and such. Well, I now have a new favorite hub simply because I played with the capsules and learned how to put extras in! Woohoooo! It still isn't a commercial hub as I don't do those but it is a little different from any other hub I have done so far. So, now, my new favorite is  http://hubpages.com/hub/Betty-Boop-A-Cartoon-Legand
