Many a Thank You to Angela Brummer!

Sharing is Caring!

I started my night on Sunday like any other. Have dinner, turn on the TV, browse the internet and then check the hubpages feed for anything new that looked interesting. One of the first things I saw was a new hub called Hubbers Alert!. Well that title certainly got my attention! I started reading it and immediately knew this article was written by someone that is not only a fantastic writer, but also has a genuine desire to connect to people and share her knowledge to help others be successful. I was overwhelmed by the number of comments and hubbers who were interested in participating and sharing their hubs and in return would comment and share others as well. I was completely shocked when I visited Angela's profile and saw that she has only been a member of the community for 5 weeks!

I will admit, after almost 4 years as a member, and only really being active for a few months, I haven't been all that on top of commenting. Naturally, I have read, voted up, given feedback, and shared many articles, but my comments have always been minimal. Now I know where I have been going wrong! With only 5 weeks as an active member, Angela is not only a level 5 commenter, she has also gained a HUGE following with over 300 followers. Many a hubber old and new might ask the question: How did she do it?!?!. After reading and sharing a few of her hubs it really is no wonder why such a fantastic individual has gained the respect and support that she has in so short a time.

I wanted to formally thank her for being an extraordinary person and for kick starting my own personal mission to become a more active member of the community. Without her I would probably not have easily been introduced to some other fantastic hubbers such as TToombs08 and Daughter of Maat, whose hubs I have been enjoying immensely. TToombs08 has the beginning of a fantastic fantasy story and maybe if enough people pester her perhaps she will be inspired to finish it... :-) I encourage everyone to check out her Terra, Lady of the Sword series. Before the Hubbers Alert! hub was taken down there were many other stories from hubbers about how much their traffic had increased and how much fun they were having discovering and sharing new articles.

So, Angela Brummer, thank you for being an extraordinary, kind, thoughtful, wonderful person and for showing me how much more fun I should be having as a member of Hubpages. I wish you all the success you so rightly deserve and happy hubbing for years to come!

~Michelle

Angela is brilliant. I was about to give up on hubpages because my traffic just kept dropping. After reading her hub, and participating my traffic DOUBLED and it's still going strong.

Angela, I'd like to thank you as well! You're a wonderful person and your hub really brought the community together!!

Voted up, and all the buttons and of course shared!

Michelle, I have no idea what to say. Thank you seems too little for the compliments - I am humbled.

I agree, Angela Brummer has been very industrious in getting traffic flowing and she has definately been gaining in popularity! I had no idea Hubber Alert had been taken down! Wow.

You are a fantastic writer in your own right! I look forward to much more from you as your writing career takes off! :)

And then there's Daughter Of Maat.... :) Stupendous! :)

Voted this up and everything. You are wonderful.

You guys are making me blush!! I was already blushing from the hub!! :) Thank you guys. I actually really needed the boost, I was getting to the point I didn't think I was interesting!

Again thank you Michelle, TToombs and Angela, you are all wonderful people and awesome writers. I look forward to learning from all of you!

TToombs, thank you so much for you kind words and support!

Daughter of Maat, I also was starting to feel disheartened and questioned my ability as a writer.

There are not enough adjectives in the English language to express how extraordinary you all are!

I joined 7 days ago and was about to go give up too but then an "Angel" was sent from "hubove" . I am with you and all in emulating Angela. Thank you Michele for this great hub. Cheers to Angela!

What a wonderful acknowledgement of Angelas efforts to help us all - she certainly inspired me to be more active on HubPages and do more sharing on HubPages. Thanks, too, for linking to my hub about sharing. Voted up, useful, and shared with my HubPages followers.

I might cry this is so sweet! I am waiting for my hub to be checked over but in the mean time anyone that wants to have me share a hub just email it to me. We certainly can share one anothers. It seem so slow on here without the sharing! My chart spikes way up and then down again! How sweet Michelle!

Angela, you deserve it, which is why your listed in my hub too! My traffic has actually been holding steady. But the feed is a bit slow compared to yesterday without all the sharing.

I know what you mean @Michelle Taylor, Angela seems to have inspired us all, I too have been far too inactive on hub pages, but not anymore! And thank you to you for introducing me to some great hubbers including yourself! Voted up, etc.

I agree Angela has brought a difference to hubbing by focussing on sharing and getting shared. I firmly believe that sharing of good hubs ought to be done as many a time we miss out on hubs in the feeds while we are off hubpages.

Voted up and useful. Shared.

I can really say Angela is awesome. I could not agree more about her kindness. She is a great writer, and unselfish at that. Not only does she care about her work, but sharing the work of others. I can thank her for directing much traffic to my pages.

By activity here on the Hubs, you can see her passion for writing, reading, and getting everyone involved in other's work.

Great Hu.

Thank you MelChi. It was really cool to see that Angela got the 500 followers accolade today. Just proof that good things come to good people :-)

Why was the Hubbers Alert hub taken down? too promotional? I did read it and do think Angela has been a great addition to HubPages--a great sharer that's for sure! Thanks for writing this, Michelle.

I think it was taken down because there were too many unrelated links in one hub... not positive though. I can't say enough good things about Angela she has taken HubPages by storm with no signs of stopping!
