A Tribute To My Favorite Hub Pages Writers
I have been a member of hub pages for almost two years now and although I’m not as active as I should be when it comes to writing, I appreciate the freedom and opportunity that hub pages has provided to the world wide web community as well creating a platform for all kinds of writers and publishers.
What intrigues me about hub pages is that you can discover brilliant, but hidden writers who you will never hear of on famous publications due to the fact that most writers here have either never bothered to become established authors or they have tried and sadly have not managed to become a JK Rowling or Stephen King. Nevertheless, for the last month I have seriously done some hub surfing and I can tell you that now I read an average of 75-100 hubs a day. This weekend alone I think I have read close to 500 hubs. It does explain why I have not published as many hubs as I ought to because I spend too much time reading other people’s work, which I enjoy very much.
Now through my vigorous hub trotting, I discovered that they are several writers that I frequently read their work and most times I leave good feedback as an encouragement to them to keep on writing! If I don’t leave a comment it’s simply because I’m either engrossed in thought or I read the hub decided to raid the fridge first and by the time I get back to hub reading I forget to put a comment. So forgive me if I don’t leave comments but rest assured your hubs are read indeed.
So without further ado, I would like to dedicate this hub to these brilliant writers who in my opinion deserve to be recognised for their work. I hope through these hub series, somebody or some entity that are looking for brilliant writers will be able to find these guys and showcase the world their amazing talent. So in no particular order I am going to start with these writers:
Bill Hilland aka BillyBuc - I don’t even know where to start with this guy! His writing is so lovable and enchanting. Of the 740 hubs he has I think I have read about 200 of them as his writing is so interesting and when I read them, I imagine it’s Santa telling me these dear wonderful stories whilst I’m seated on his lap. Exceptional writer and deserves a standing innovation for such wonderful work. One of my favourite hubs of his is Love Is: A Moment with Bill Reflection. Judging by the fact that his hubs gets an average of 100 responses within 24 hours after he publishes them is a testament of true writer. So from me, Bill, I just want to thank you for having the ability to glue me to your hubs. Love them and keep ‘em coming!
John Hansen aka Jodah – Dr Seuss has got nothing on this guy!! I was never a fan of poems but thanks to this brilliant down under native, I’m obsessed with poems. Every time I read his poems I either laugh so hard my tummy hurts or I cry so much like a baby teething (tears of joy by the way) Such an inspiring poet filled with a good spirit of writing soul searching and beautiful poems. I truly believe his poems are magic and one day it would be nice if he would publish these poems in a book. I would definitely buy it ( and get 5 percent royalties for suggesting it!) So from me, Jodah, thank you so much that your hubs are always a positive side to my daily life. I especially love this poem - God’s Perfect Creation – and I love your wittiness but gentleness that comes from your poems. You’re definitely the best poet writer here on hub pages.
Swilliams aka Emunah - She’s not only a stunningly beautiful woman but she can write!! How many pretty ladies out there do you know that can write so blissfully and wonderfully? Her hubs are entertaining and educational and you’re bound to find out something you never knew. My favourite hub of hers is Things To Do In Okinawa Japan! Travel With Grace. I like the fact your articles are written in a way that I feel I’m part of it so that’s what makes your writing special. You include the reader which is brilliant. Emunah, thank you for entertaining me with wonderful videos and insightful writings.
Kenneth Avery – This Alabama native was born to write. I’m pretty sure he scribbled all kinds of stuff inside his mama’s womb as what he has given to the hub community is pure solid gold writing. Absolutely fantastic writer who has it all - wittiness, charm, intellectuality and technicality. Although I’ve only just discovered him, but I feel like I found the gold pot at the end of the rainbow without looking too far! Ken, thank you for adding quality and richness to the hub pages community. You’re an asset to this site so keep the good writing coming from your sweet home Alabama indeed!
Based on your hub reading routine, how many authors would you say are brilliants writers?
They are a lot of writers on here that deserve to be recognised for their work too (I actually have a list of them) but because of time constraints, I will stop here for today. I truly believe that if you find someone that has impacted you in anyway, the least you can do is thank them and since I have never met any of these writers, I figured they should know that their work on here is valuable and appreciated and give them the boost to keep on writing. Writing is like baking the perfect cake that even the one that doesn’t like cake will enjoy eating it. It’s how I see these hub page authors - writers that can influence and give birth to new and up coming writers and turn many lazy readers into book worms. So from me, it’s very big thank you to all you folks who make hub pages the best place on the web for writers to showcase their talents. If I ever get to meet any of you, drinks will definitely be on me! I do wish there was some way I could give you all big hugs. Forgive me if this looks like a lame hub but hey, everyone deserves a pat on the back when they do a good job and make a difference in a person’s life no matter how big or small that impact is. So this is my way of expressing my gratitude. I realize it’s a bit unorthodox to just mumble on and write what seems like a snooze fest but in my defence, I have an overdose of the happy giggly bug at the moment, due to the fact that I just have too much of it and I need to offload some of it as it’s too heavy to bear alone so hence, this hub. I’m sure when I wake up tomorrow and read it I will die of severe embarrassment and hide in my cocoon for a year or so till I’m forgiven.
Look out for part two coming soon! If you would like me to feature you in these series please just leave a comment below.
