Terry27 gave me an idea with his Hub focused on "Pay it Forward"...

    Sometimes it can get a little tense around here with so many discussions and people disagreeing on so much.  I wanted to start a post that I hope will remain positive--a "Pay it Forward" post.  Write about another Hubber that you admire for one reason or another.  Let that person know that you've written about them so they can come read it and "Pay if Forward" by writing about another Hubber, etc. etc.  Let's see if we can actually create a forum that stays positive the WHOLE way though!  :-)

      I'll have to come back and list several Hubbers on here but since I am supposed to be sleeping right now, I'll start with the first one that pops into my mind.  I like the Hubber "Captain Redbeard."(http://captainredbeard.hubpages.com/)

      For some reason, he just really makes me laugh.  He states his opinions and is not afraid to be real, but tries to remain respectful.  He has a great sense of humor and--he talks like a pirate!  That is just hilarious to me for some reason.  I always have a smile after I've looked at something he's written.  I'll be back to share about more Hubbers soon because like you said AEvans--there are  many!  :-)

      Calico Stark is another Hubber I appreciate.  Her comments are so genuine and she is overall just very positive and super encouraging.  She has a way of "grace" in which she talks and relates to others.  So glad to have met her here!  I'll be back later with more great Hubbers.  :-)

        Thank you so much Seek!  I am honored to even be mentioned by such a talented writer such as yourself.  You have greatly blessed me today!

      Here are some more!  If I didn't mention you (yet) doesn't mean I don't appreciate you.  There are so many- I can only recognize a few at a time!!!

      A newer Hubber I'd like to mention is Joshuadr.  He has a great sense of humor yet really hits the nail on the head.  He has a way to keep the reader interested!

      Lifegate is another great hubber.  He is honest and is a faithful reader who leaves encouraging comments.  His writing is genuine.

      DaveMathews tells it like it is, as he has a passion for truth, but does so in a way that is respectful.  He is an encourager and takes a lot of time to support fellow hubbers on a regular basis. 

      LVidoni5 writes things that make you stop what you are doing and really get lost in his artistic and profound way of communicating his experiences.  His work has moved me to tears.

      Kristinekv has gone out of her way to be a supportive fellow Hubber.  She's given me good feedback of how to improve my articles and has encouraged me in my writing.  She’s gone out of her way to help me in her area of expertise.  She is honest and has a big heart.  :-)

      Vladimir Uhri writes from a place of wisdom, experience, and integrity.  His life story is amazing and he is a genuine lover of people. 

      JinnyMarte became an instant friend.  She has such passion and a beautiful way of expressing it through art and words.  She is an encourager and one who perserveres.  She has touched me as a writer and as a friend!

      Raciniwa has a gentleness about her that is soothing.  Her comments are always so genuine and heart-felt.  She is one with a great heart. 

      Jenubouka speaks her mind with style.  She has a great sense of humor and always has something interesting to add to a discussion.

      Mickysr has a wealth of knowledge.  His hubs engage me until the very end.  He is clever and witty, too.

      When it comes to paying it forward, I can't say how great an idea this is. I have to say, I usually stay out of the forums but I found this from Terry27.
      So naturally, I need to Pay It Forward as well. My personal favorite is RealHousewife!
      realhousewife.hubpages.com
      She is overall a great person... I know this because I actually got a chance to meet up with her even though we live thousands of miles away. She is who she is online. She keeps it real, just like she says. I have never met someone who is so considerate and caring and supportive. I truly can't even tell anybody how truly glad I am to have met her here on Hubpages.

        Thank you barbergirl28! You are way too nice:) lol  I am so glad we did get a chance to meet up in Vegas - so much fun and I have got to pay it forward right back to you!  I don't know if I would still be on hub if you had not helped me:)  It is truly my honor and privilege to have you for my friend soldier:) lol

    Another hubbber? Multiples for me. lolo! I would say being here on HP for 4 years has been a journey. I have made many new friends. Kimberlyslyrics is one of them. At the beginning she was everyhwere and her powerful energy made me care for her even more. I have spoke to her on the phone and she is a joy.

    must65gt both he and his wife have also became close friends of mine through HP along with Rolly A. Chabot. He has published 3 delightful books!

    <snipped - no promotional links in the forums> 

    I am so proud of him! So many I admire and I can't list them all, but each one them are a blessing to me. All 2k of them! smile

    Good idea! There are too many Hubbers here whom I admire. But can't do a Hub as of now as I need to do the clean up act of my Hubs first and make some drastic changes.

    Thepracticlemommie always brings good information to hubpages and a positive point of view.  Some hubbers I brace for when I click on them even though I enjoy them. With her, I know the experience is going to be pleasant.

    Where to begin and end?  MikeQ107 for his unfailing support, Nell Rose for her great hubs, thejeffriestube for all his information, diogenes for his sense of humor, fpherj48 for her sense of humor and support, jami l. pereira for her great poems, Vinaya Ghimire for his earnestness, Ghaelach for his dedication, kenneth avery for his great hubs and generous praise....how do I stop?  There are so many I dont want to leave out like sky9106, weestro, WD Curry 111, PDX Karaoke Guy...I could go on and on but hope someone else will pick up the ball. I also hope those I haven't mentioned will not be offended but will know they are always in my heart.

    I am (fairly) new to HubPages and have not read as many articles as I would like to, but one of my main priorities in life is staying positive and bringing positivity to others.  I love your idea to pay it forward and keep it positive, and it will also coax me into reading more fellow Hubbers. Good job!!!

    First of all, I want thank Seek-n-Find for putting this amazing forum together.

    There are five Hubbers that I feel are important contributors in "paying it forward."

    Vinaya Ghimire writes beautiful hubs complemented with beautiful photos. His comments are positive and inspiring.

    Phyllis Doyle is another amazing writer. Her piece entitled "Lantern Carriers Spread Light and Love" was absolutely incredible. 

    barbergirld28 is an amazing writer. She has a lot of amazing hubs on a variety of topics. I greatly appreciate her positive support.

    Lucky Cats is an animal lover, in particular cats. Her love and compassion for these amazing animals is shown in her writing. I am moved to tears by her love for these wonderful spiritual teachers.

    everydaymedium is a wonderful writer. There is a lot of wisdom and insights in her writing.

        I would also recommend Vinaya Ghimire. As a trained journalist and former program director and music director of a public radio station, I have gained knowledge of journalistic abilties.  Not only does he take great pictures, he researches well and writes well, too. With some money he could get published and have success.  He is good enough to work for National Geographic, in my opinion.

      Lucky Catsposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      I am very humbled and  honored to be on Terry27's list of notable writers.  It is with a great sense of appreciation that I find my efforts here on HP's worthy to be mentioned among such an incredible number of excellent writers.  Indeed, my love for animals is great, and my desire to share this and instill appreciation for our animal companions in others is a huge part of what my life is all about.  I wish to thank Terry27 for his recognition of this and for telling others.

      Further, I want to add several writers whom I believe are exceptional and great to read. 

      Marcoujor; a woman; professional nurse, who shares an amazing empathy and depth in her offerings on HP's.  Marcoujor writes with love and understanding. 

      AA Zavala is as creative as he is vulnerable and this shows through brilliantly in his creative writing.  Sensitive as well as having a wonderful sense of humor and irony, AAZ is a delight to read. 

      Eiddwen, from across the world from me, always delights as well as excites as she shares thought provoking and very personal articles of her insights and experiences.  A loving soul, Eiddwen is a treasure.

      Saddlerider is our modern day star!  His absolutely astounding talent in verse as well as content is stellar. This man will become an important and required part of the educational system in years, decades and generations to come.  Reading his work is like taking a step back in time to share company with the great writers of all time.

      There are so many more...this is the tip of the iceburg.  I thank Terry for his inclusion of my work here on "Pay it Forward."

    Too many to mention. Some of the first who welcomed and helped and encouraged me were: JS Matthews, JT Walters, Sunshine625, the jeffriestube, and Epigramman. I think I met saddlerider and Lord de Cross early on, too, and so many more. I've met so many great friends here that it's hard for me to remember who were the first ones for sure. But that's a few of them there. There are really too many to mention, but hopefully we'll keep mentioning and they'll all get mentioned. haha

    I also want to celebrate Joanne Goldsmith.  What a sincere and tender heart she has.  She is so very encouraging and it does not appear there is a judgmental bone in her body.  Whether she agrees or disagrees with an idea, she will show love and respect to each person.  :-)

    I would like to say I really appreciated the support from Realhouswife who I did email and thank.  I was so frustrated trying to write my first hub and actually get it published.  She said, "I can't wait to see it." And that spurred me on.  I've now written two hubs -- don't ask when there will be a third, because I won't have an answer!

    Marissa was also extremely helpful to me.  I was trying to move my website from its previous host and I'm not the most technologically advanced person -- a dinosaur really -- and I didn't understand that this is more like a blog of writings when I started.  She got me headed in the right direction and for that I give accolades!
