How to Say Thank You: For My Followers

Thank you flowers
Thank you flowers | Source

I cannot even BEGIN to thank everyone who has supported and helped me through this 30/30 challange. At one point I was overwhelmed but you all lifted me up and reminded me that I could do this. Friends offered me ideas, others read all my Hubs and left comments, others even offered to write FOR me hahah I have THE best Hub-buddies. I thought about listing everyone as a way of saying 'thank you' but then I started to panic that I would miss someone - and I just couldn't stand the thought. So instead I will be sure to hit up each one of you over my extended break from writing to pimp out your Hubs and leave comments and catch up on all the writing I've missed.

EDIT TWO HOURS LATER: I was only going to put a few Hubbers linked at the end of my acrostic followers poem but HOLY COW I ended up with tons hahah So happy reading!



F irst I started and I had very few

O n and on you added up - grew

L ittle helpers to offer support along the way

L ater becoming friends, promising to stay

O h how I know I wouldn’t be a success without you

W ishing to show you your importance, if you only knew

E veryone else comes and goes but you stay and converse

R eally you’re all the best followers in the universe!

S ometimes I wonder how I got to be so lucky

L ord knows that I wouldn’t want to follow me

I f I should forget to tell you all the time

F ind it here in these words in this rhyme

T hat you are important to me and you lift me so

M any times over again I just want you to know

E very time I feel so alone I can come to your HubPages

U nited in our passion for writing though we are all in different stages

P lease know I cherish you all and support you in all ways!

Ardie - I enjoy you more than you will ever know. You are so clever, witty and fun - I like that! Your phrases with the words 'followers lift me up' deserves a major AWWWW! It is very easy to follow you. You are loads of fun and very informative.

I want to thank you for including my hub on Dustin Nunn. He surely is an interesting cartoonist.

A major congratulations on finishing the challenge. You did a great job!

Now rest, rejuvenate and then kick out some more! :)

Great job - way to go!! You deserve a break today!

Oh, you pulled my tears with this! I take my hat off for you. The 30/30 is not a challenge to be under-estimated; it is hard-hard work. Ardie, you proved yourself as a true writer with determination and staying-power. I am proud to be your follower :)

Ardie 4 years ago from Neverland Author

Melovy, you’re such a trip! Thanks and thanks. I don’t want to forget to thank you for supporting me too. I love that little hedgehog – I don’t think I’d be able to eat him

R9139, thanks :)

Gypsy Rose Lee! Thank you so much. I’m especially glad for this challenge and Steve because it helped me get to know you :)

SS – wouldn’t you know that I am doing it again in March – BUT this time I will be a supporting actor.

Haunty, I know WE DID IT!!! Congrats to you also my friend.

Rastamermaid :)

Albertsj :)

Alocsin :)

THANK YOU ALL!!

Cclitgirl, thank you so much! You’ve been a big supporter in all this too :)So of course I added your link (I won’t admit here that I made a typo at first and typed kink instead of link hahah oops)

Jenubouka – it was such a relief that I was giddy the night I hit the last publish button. I was swearing all over my Facebook page and then passed out in a drunken stupor hah!!! If you decide to do the challenge you better make sure I know!! I will be doing this again in March…I know – nuts

Deborah Brooks thank you so much!

Cagsil, thanks! I didn’t realize how good it would feel :)

Marcy! I need to get back to you on that email. I took a few days from HubPages to regroup and now I am behid. Yikes. Aaw you always have the nicest things to say :) Im so glad I got to know you because you will be huge and I will be there to see it happen.

ThePracticalMommy, thanks!! :)

Tillsontitan, Thank you and I’d be honored to have you as a follower :) Then I will thank you in my next Thank You Hub!

Hello MissOlive! I appreciate you too and I double appreciate the huge aaaw :) I chose the Hub on Dustin Nunn because I think everyone should read it.

Billybuc thanks! I didn’t know you’re doing the challenge! I will be right over to visit and peruse the HubBub

RHW THANKS! I was seriously losing my mind for a while. It seemed like I had to be up at 630 to get the kids ready for school, then I still had one here until 1230. 1230 to 3 I would write (if I wasn’t volunteering at the school which I do twice a week) and then get the kids home, fed, bathed, and homeworked just to write from like 9 pm until 1 am…ugh. I did take my break for a few days and now I feel bad I neglected comments!

Thoughtforce thank you so much :)

PCC, Yay! Mr Hubber in Command, we finished this and you took first place. I bow to you for completing your own 30/30. Was I a 99!? I always miss that

Hi Vinaya and thanks! I would never expect anyone to read all 30 of my Hubs hahah I really got hard up for ideas and made some funky ones :)

Hi there Cardisa! I wasn’t aware you did the challenge too :) I should’ve known because you’re always so on top of everything.

Audrey, thank you! It wasn’t easy but I learned so much from the challenge…hopefully I remember it all tomorrow

Thanks sparklea :) You’re so very sweet to say that!

Hi Tammy :) thank you! You helped so much along the way

Hi Claudia! I DID increase those followers and that makes me so happy. Thanks for the congrats

Hi writer20 and thank you so so so much. You were always around for me too and I appreciate that so much :)

Thank you Christywrites :)Im glad I got to know you through that PCC guy ;)

Hi Sunnie Day and thank you so much!

Thanks JamesPoppell, there are great people here :) I promise to keep writing – its an illness really

Hello Martie! Thank you so much – you’re always such an inspiration. You’re so sweet and such a brilliant writer :) I am proud to be YOUR follower :P

Injured lamb thank you SO much! But I cannot take full credit. A friend (Hubber jonmcclusk) gave me the idea for the acrostic and the words going down - I just filled in the actual poem :)

Hello tsmog! The little ones are growing too fast. I need to put them in shrink wrap to keep them from getting any bigger!!! Glasses are way cool now. Did you know the kids in schools actually buy fake glasses just because?! Who knows...these kids nowadays. How have you been? Hanging in there?

Jeyaramd – thank you so much for stopping in! I really do believe we all need one another to accomplish anything :) I wouldn’t continue to write if I didn’t have someone to read my words. So what I do is ALL because of my followers and my supporters. I love them all!! The beginning. Oh yes – I am so nuts that I am doing another 30 in 30 to coincide with the Q&A Contest in March!!

Hi Ruchira! You should do the challenge – and I will be there the whole way to cheer you on :) I will be waiting for the announcement that you have started!

Hello Millionaire Tips :) Thank you and thank you! It was a pretty neat feeling.

Thanks for SHARING:)


kelleyward 4 years ago

What a cute hub! I really want to take the challenge but being a stay at home mom with 2 kids still at home scares me a little. If I say I'm gonna do something then I do it and I think I might be up all night trying to complete 30/30 right now! So glad you did this! What an accomplishment!


Ardie profile image

Ardie 4 years ago from Neverland Author

Hi Sakshisingh :) Thanks for becoming a follower too! I will do my best to only publish high quality (mostly) Hubs for you to see. AND thank you for reading and enjoying. There’s a lot of appreciation in this Hub!

Hello radhikasree, thanks for the congrats – I would never consider a visit from you as late! I just appreciate you stopping in and reading :)

Hi Kelley and thanks so much! It took me 3 years to finally commit to the challenge. My kids are all older and in school now so I have time to write during the day. You will know when you are ready – no point adding pressure. And if you try later and it doesn’t work out you don’t fail because at least you ended up with more Hubs - and isnt that what we all really want?
