    Yay, I finally hit 100 again. I haven't been able to be very active this summer in my writing or reading, (Sorry friends and fans)and was happy to see that I had hit 100 again this week. What a great way to start out the day after having after having a stressful beginning of the week. Congrats to any others that have met their goal!

    Congrats. I have yet to get out of the 80's since I decimated my score early on by doing things unnaturally.

    Thanks Peter,
    I started out a little unnatural and leary. Then for some reason, I seen my score shoot up when I wrote a few hubs for a Stan Fletcher contest. My family was slightly horrified at the topics I was writing. (Which is understandable when it relates to my reputation I was trying to keep here.) After that, I tried to break 95 but couldn't. After awhile I gave up and went back to writing about my faith and Bigfoot. I have had a few major changes going on most of this summer so my presence here was at a minimal. This last week I have been trying to catch up on my reading and writing.
    I wouldn't give up on never getting out of the 80's. I can see you making 100 here soon. Thanks for your support and comment. I am looking forward to seeing you at 100 soon!

      Congrats!, what is your secret? I would like to know how you did it?

      Don't get me wrong, I'm keeping at it and correcting what I did a little at a time.
      I put all my mistakes in a hub called How New Hubbers Ruin Their Hubscore several months ago.

        I read you hub and think they are some terrific tips to help other hubbers. Patience is another big key that I forgot to add to my hub of what I had learned in my two years here. Many new hubbers expect to see 100 in a few days to a week and are often let down while others may succeed.
        I am still correcting hubs from earlier this year in a mad dash to write 21 hubs in 30 hours. Most of them weren't too bad, but I found a lot of mistakes I made, or a set up I need to change.
        To be honest, I was pleasantly surprised to see I made 100 today. Yesterday I was sitting at a 94...100 was the last thing on my mind.

          thx tl - I really appreciate that comment.
          Now I need to tweak my hubs to make them better.
          can you recommend any good hubs?

            I will try to check out a few for you. It may take me a few days, I was just informed that a friend of mine's daughter was hit by a vehicle and life flighted out of here to a bigger city. As soon as I can I will.

    Thanks Cardisa,
    I really do not have a secret. Most of what I have been doing on HP is learning from other writers and how their style of writing effects their traffic and any violations that pop up. I try to write about things that I am passionate about. Most of my writing is creative writing more-so than a how-to hub. I do try to find things that are unique and interesting to the reader.
    Read Peter's hub! He has some terrific tips to add. Thanks again for commenting.

    Good Job. I hope I get there one day. I cant seem to make it past 97 at the most....

    Thanks Tlpoague.

    I read Peter's hub a couple of times actually. It did help. I stopped following people just because they follow me. I figure if they really want to follow me then they wont unfollow because I don't follow them back. I haven't lost any one since and I now have 200+ followers.

    I answer ay least two questions per day and respond to a couple of forum topics. I don't do too much in the forums or questions section. I spend most of my time on HP working on my own hubs, reading other hubs and responding to comments. Those actions keep me steady at around 90-93. I realize if I don't sign in on a particular day I drop to 89.

      I would say that you are on the road to success. I hit 100 in May following the same stragety. I tried to post at least 1 hub a week, answer at least 1-5 questions a day, 1-3 forums, and as many hubs as I had time for. My score usually stays a steady 94-96. I did stay at 99 for a week one time.
      When I began following people, I was selective who I followed. I didn't like the idea of following so many people I couldn't keep up with reading their hubs. Now I try to do the best I can in the amount of time I had. About once a month, I try to follow up on followers I haven't seen or heard in awhile.

      Typically the same time, is what i have been doing since i joined hubpages, but i come to realize that i cant just go beyond 85! it might show 85 in the morning and if i check again in the evening it will show 83, i have been swinging between 85 and 83

    Congratulations, tlpoague.  It's been many moons since I've seen 100.  smile

    Kudos to you for the 100, but I don't do the same things as you to get to the 100 score.  Actually, I have no idea how it's figured, but it is what it is.  smile

    Thanks Randy and Denise,
    I, too, have no idea how it is figured. I have read many theories and possibilities, but still have no clue. Half the time I have no idea what I am doing, but enjoy the moment of writing. I need to get off my lazy bum and get to producing more. Thanks again for dropping by and commenting.

    Congratulations but it seems, that i what i am talking about, the computer does generate the score according to the time your spend on here, it doesn't matter what activities you are doing, i checked yours now and its now 98?

      I don't think the time spent here has a great bearing on the profile score.  Perhaps some, but not to a great extent IMHO. smile
