Have all the changes over the last year ruined Hubpages?
Change is like the mighty tide of the Atlantic Ocean. Refuse is hauled away on the backs of whitecaps and deposited in the uncharted depths. This is a good thing and yet, too often the churning surf also drags away and buries items of great worth and treasure. For me, Hubpages has become the Atlantic Ocean. It has carted off a few banana peels but has washed away many narrow slivers of beach that were home to much wisdom and beauty.
HubPages has become a little like FaceBook. I'm still trying to figure it all out. I like your analogy by the way. :-)
Thanks Genna. I can't find anything anymore. I can't find hubs by friends. When I tell the page to allow me to search only for hubs it gives me everything but. I still love the site but they don't have a clear vision anymore of what it should be.
I kind of agree ! I don't need the score but I used to have a steady ninties score , I believe I even hit a hundred once , not sure , however it seems hubpages is dying a slow death somehow . I dislike all the facebook childishness - refuse to tie into it , twtter and the others as well . I kind of wish there was a better place for poets and writers of stories alike . I do dabble in the forums when I feel like harassing someone but that's growing old too .
Your description, while entertaining, doesn't provide any details. There have been some positive changes over the years, and some things that I don't necessarily agree with. I don't feel HP has been ruined by the changes that I've seen, but then again I'm not sure what you're speaking about specifically. I look at HP as a nice place to write and earn some passive income in the process. If I knew what you disliked about the changes I could write more..
Since the beginning of the internet, I have been in many writing groups, including the AMAZING INSTANT NOVELIST, where I won a few awards. Having seen many groups come and go, I am giving you a feeling that I have, that HP is sliding backwards.
Bill, I am not one that embraces change easily. I get comfortable in a place or an activity and tend to get a bit stressed when things change. I don't particularly like all the recent changes here at Hub Pages either but I do understand that the staff have to keep striving to keep up with the ever changing Internet and Google requirements. It doesn't seem as much fun writing here as it used to be, but I am determined to ride the tide (even if it's across the Atlantic) until I wash up safe and sound on the shore of some beautiful island. Am I dreaming? Maybe, but it's still my favourite place to write.
