  95. Talented photographers.
  96. The staff is very careful at bringing in new changes.

      My, oh my, Prairieprinces, if you can find 99 valid reasons to like Hubpages, I would expect to see an endless list that documents all your blessings.

      You obviously are very aware of what is going on around you and it would take great awareness and conscientiousness to acknowledge the finer qualities that are found in Hubpages, relationships, or in life.

      A job well done...well worth the time to read. :0)

      Voted up and away.

      Best wishes, behave, and be well - C.J. Sledgehammer

      Awesome, my friend! I thought to myself, how can she come up with 99 reasons! And I agreed with them all. I haven't seen much from the referral thing, either, but it's still cool. It IS really cool to know writers from all over the world, and also to have people you feel like you know on here. I've had some real support on here when I was feeling low. You're right! There's always somebody on here at 2:00 in the morning! Great hub. Love it! You have the reasons I had in my hub and many more! All the votes and sharing!
