I think it could be Wrylilt. She has been known to be seen dressing up like a chicken (in the "what does your writing location look like" thread), why stop at dressing up like a chicken.. Of course, PC Unix has been known to wear a wig; and a Arlene P has shown signs of having the inclination to dress up (Easter bunny or Playboy Bunny - I'm not sure) as well. Who knows who any of these suspicious, dressing-up, characters may be... (Hmm. By the way, has anyone seen Greek One with his wig and sunglasses in the same room as CMHypno??? I didn't think so.) I think the person in the top picture could be the one behind the Hubs of Wilderness The baby disguise - not one of his most convincing; but hey, he writes thousands of Hubs a week. Some disguises are going to be more convincing than others.)
I AM jealous, but I'm mostly jealous of the ability you and your four suspicious and clever, massive-Hub-producing, cohorts have when it comes to producing enough Hubs to create the impression that there are thousands of Hubbers. The typing speed (and cleverness of it all) are mind-boggling. It's just a matter of time before Mike Wallace's replacement comes knocking on the door and asking some questions. (Come on, fess up. Are you also the one in the Batman suit?)
A lot of people sign up because they think they need to to comment on a hub-- they may never darken the hub doorway again. Another bunch signs up with intentions of writing, then forget,change their minds, or keep putting it off. I have a friend, whom I convinced to come on board, who was having a terrible time trying to sign up. The staff helped her discover that she had signed up three years ago (to leave a comment) and forgot. The number of active hubbers would be way lower.
According to HubPages there are 221,682 published users. however as was previously pointed out some have multiple accounts, and I'm thinking since it says published users it's not counting people who have accounts and are not published. You only have to count me once, I don't have multiple accounts.
Hey come on guys - 1000 a month is around 30 views a day. That is limited success, perhaps just 'showing potential'. Moderately successful hubs, and yes I have had had them, show at least 100 views a day (3000 a month), but successful hubs, to mind, get at least 1000 views a day. At the very least, many get an 's' at the end, and yes I have had them too, before Google struck of course!
Hey wilderness, you know there's no crying in...writing, right? (Apologies to A League of Their Own...) In my almost 3 years here, I have only 1,2, or maybe 3 hubs that get steady viewing. By steady, I mean I get around 30+ vpd. Sometimes. Most of my traffic is from HP, of course, but next is Google-US, 2nd is Google-UK. Then StumbleUpon. Go figure. I think I'm doing pretty well, though! I have no idea who this 'Panda' is/was, but he sounds like quite the bear! HAHA, I know a panda's not really a bear, but I couldn't help myself...sorry!
Anyhoo, don't stress on success, love what you do. Laurel =^o^=
Start with z = 1/2 * 400 * 3.14159 Add b = 44 Subtract the heat differential on a zero gravity void string with a weight of 0.00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 grams, we will call this @
Therefore we do z + b - @ = total hubbers on HubPages
I've always wondered why some Hubbers have more than one account. Is this a good thing or not? The only thing I can think of is that after a person writes many Hubs, it becomes a chore to take care of that...
Maddie, I hope you are reading this, or whomever that can help.I have posted almost 150 Hubs...and if you are reading this, you know that takes time, energy, and effort. I had these hubs split among a few...
