A Year With Dear Ones

Updated on February 24, 2016
Source

It's been more than a year now at HubPages, it reminds me of a popular saying, “O God thy sea is so great and my boat is so small”, amidst millions of visitors and published hubs and thousands of members and I am here with an insignificant contribution….. But I feel honored to be a part of the Hubbers open community. Feel so happy for it. My knowledge, style of writing, perceptions and views on various issues has changed drastically. I never thought of becoming a part of association of luminaries from across the Globe. I'm thankful to the HubPages team for making this platform so meaningful and knowledgeable. I feel I'm connected to a well-organized family comprises of sober and intellectual people. I would like to share a year’s experience of mine at HubPages with you all.

Knowledge

What fascinates me is the vastness of knowledge. From topics like “Arts and Design” down to “Technology” and “Travel Places” it covers hundreds of topics and sub topics. Almost all walks of life and every discipline find a respectable place here. It allows long format beautiful and informative write ups. With comments followed by more inputs on published hubs gives dissemination of knowledge heaven like vastness. One can advance the thought process of an author or stalls the process to direct it towards a right perspective. Sometimes a new lease of life is being felt when comments tend to be more aggressive and critical.

The overall involvement is delightful as it falls within the frame work of respect and honor of an individual. I never come across with any harsh, irrelevant and objectionable comments. It's a commendable effort that with thousands of hubs with multi fold comments the purity of knowledge has been precisely retained. Thus HubPages stand tall as a hallmark of the essence of knowledge. It openly communicates that knowledge should broaden the vision and annihilate the shortsightedness; it should help in acquaintance of more knowledge and never quench the thirst of learning and inculcating a curiosity for further study.

Knowledge should also help understand the self and the world around.... should make a person convinced of the entrusted responsibilities and to have empathy in heart for others. This way the spirit of knowledge never allows a person to be ignorant... With these vitals of knowledge in view, the HubPages provide a bigger canvas for there visualization.

Interaction

We have substantial options for mutual interactions; publishing of hubs followed with comments and remarks, question and answers again followed with comments, forum and discussion, fan mails….every bit of it is an attractive means of communication. In most of the fora one can find a one way communication rather a single window entry would welcome the concerned person, be it’s an author or publisher, but here in HubPages we find multiple entries of interactions. It opens the door for two ways, nay a multi-way communications. Publish your hubs and then interact through comments and their response. Pose a query then you have a series of interesting and relevant answers, then response and comment over the answers take the interaction still further. If you have anything related to HubPages and its technical aspects there you have forums.

The experienced Hubbers will clarify everything and provide you with most suitable solutions, the editorial board seldom involves. Every day before going to bed you get a refreshing dose of "Here are your recent notifications...." and you will find the published hub details, the questions posed, the comments and answers appeared, description of followers and following....though we go to bed as an end to day’s activities but these notifications start a new phase of discovery and exploration.

All this stuff makes HubPages an abode of unique interaction. The essence of any forum gets reflected through the liberty it provides for the persons involved... Greater the liberty, greater the stature of a forum, unarguably HubPages, with its overwhelming expanse of interaction, stand tall as a hallmark of freedom of speech and expressions.

Ideological Development

HubPages…..an open book to discover and interact has really opened multiple options to delve with, added to this is the condition for publishing a hub, that the ideas and views presented here must be pure in their form, should not be repeated or copied pasted, the media attached should have a reliable reference, the text of the hub should have authentic information.

I am of the view that this criterion of HubPages is an honest source of one’s ideological development. Adherent to the set norms along with the beliefs and practices, one can find a mirror here to find there reality and adopt corrective measures. We do often involve in religious discussions, debates and arguments, the logical and reasonable explanations of which strengthen our ideologies and convince us that we should have a strong attachment towards our beliefs and practices, and try to adopt and explore if anything appears convincing. Since joining I found myself in a comfortable position and it makes me satisfied that every moment spent on this “Open Book” is beneficial for me.

Friendship With The World

The greatest blessing here is a matter of friendship; it’s an honor to get connected with more than 0.5 million friends from across the globe. Even in my wildest dream I can’t think of going to the places world over or make friends or at least have a one-time conversation with such a diverse participants, no, absolutely not possible. But now through HubPages it’s a dream come true for me. I feel delighted in saying that I have friends; in fact, I have shared some of my friend’s views with my friends here in India, stating that look what my friend’s views are?

Though I haven’t seen anyone of you, but, yes, I feel a close camaraderie with all the followers and followings, hope with others also in future. I literary live with the feelings and remembrance of these friends, eagerly wait for their hubs, replies, comments, questions and answers….or some other form of interaction. I feel relaxed as I found myself with a cluster of intellectuals and noble souls who have inspired me in one or the other way. As the saying goes...“A man is known by the company he keeps”…..let the world know me by the companionship of you all.

Religious Harmony

The Hubbers from around the world have joined here along with their respective faiths. Obviously our interactions and expressions have often given us an impression of inter-religious dialogues. It’s a pleasure to see how we interact and respect each other’s sentiments and religious beliefs, exchange wishes for festivals and other happiest occasions. Even for the hardest of discussions I have found the Hubbers to be polite in their approach. It’s a beautiful example of religious harmony. HubPages deserves special accolades and an “International Recognition” for this commendable effort of uniting followers of different faiths and retaining them united and providing them with a dignified platform to exchange their views.

Question & Answer

One of the most attractive features here, pose a query and there you are with loads of answers. Questions ranging from personal and familial to social, national and international issues, from technical details to Hub related queries….you just name it, there appear thousands of queries. Just imagine from among 1.87 million queries appeared so far, the subject and the expanse of matter involved?

For some of the queries one can find a lengthy discussion, comments and comments again, if one were to arrange the chain of discussions it would certainly come to the length of a long article. If assessed and publicized, this is surely going to be a matter of pride for HubPages to be one of the biggest platform to accommodate such a delicate and sensitive discussion.

Questions always reflect one’s mind, the situation around and the impression one gets from going through the happenings in and around. Thus from among thousands of questions one can find the intellectual, ideological and cultural impacts that this platform exerts on minds. Similarly the answers also reflect a different perspective from a different angle, a satisfying and a refreshing angle. To be very honest with the questions, we have represented ourselves, our society and the culture around, and with answers and comments we have solved the issues and honored our friends.

Helpful Hubbers

A Hubber is never alone amidst the glittering alumni of Hubbers. The moment any doubt arises, just put it down and there you have plenty of hands raised to help you out. With regard to mutual help and cooperation, the discussion pertains to pragmatic and productive aspects that involve topics like, improvement of traffic, ads problems, modes of earning, media usage, affiliate programs and what not? The features like question and answers, forum and discussions precisely highlight practical and fitting solutions. The spirit of helping nature prevails; in particular the learned Hubbers having years of experience, help beautifully with their selfless advises and suggestions, it appears as if they are addressing someone who is very close to their hearts.

Exposure to a Wider Audience

A whooping 29 million visitors from across the globe visit HubPages every month, it means every Hub has a chance of getting approximately 935,484 hits per day provided if it fulfills the criteria prescribed. Exposure to such a wider audience is a great privilege for any author; probably it’s one of the largest content sharing web portals in the world with such a huge exposure. Hubbers are the privileged ones for such an epic association. The wide exposure reveals that we have been connected with a portal that’s very popular, reliable and authentic. As a result, the popularity and reliability becomes a trademark of our association.

Self-Satisfaction

The most striking part of the association with HubPages is about Self-Satisfaction. Though we do, sometimes, think of monetary benefits, but I know there are hundreds of Hubbers who just write as they get a kind of satisfaction, for them writing is a passion.

There are many a shades of satisfaction that this platform provide, publishing a hub, comments with appreciation and encouragement, loads of accolades for association and performance, daily reminders from the Team, immediate response to the queries, tips from the editorial desk for further improvement, selection of the hub as Editor’s Choice, selection of answer as the best one, conferring of different awards under varied categories……all these elements provide a kind of self -satisfaction. So we have considerable strength of Hubbers with their long lasting association and the majority here feels proud in staying connected.

The HubPages Team

The short and crispy introduction of our beloved HubPages team reveals it all…. “Meet the HubPages Team. We are real people with real passions. We’re an open book. We love sharing what we know and what we do. And learning from each other. Especially the big, wide world of Hubbers”.

Interaction with such a high profile team is an honor for us, they are on the toes to help us out, to make our hub as attractive as possible and encourage us if we achieve a milestone. The learning center allows us to stay tuned to the prescribed standard. It helps us in search friendly content, successful creation of online contents, making money out of it, protect and promote personal brands, usage of media and publishing standards etc…and then we have FAQs to assist now and then.

Loads of appreciations for the HubPages and tons of love and kind regards to the Cofounders, GM, CEOs, Engineers, Managers, Educationists, Moderators, Wizards, Marketing Executives, Content Specialists and Editors

An Epic Association

After almost a year, I have become a part of 836, 885 published hubs, 60,703 published users, 187,112 questions, 778, 410 answers, 2,746,714 forum posted and of course, interacted directly and indirectly with 23 staff members of an open community which is being explored by over 29 million people every month….what a great honor indeed. I am fortunate enough to be a member of an epic association and I’m thankful to the entire team…May God Bless Them All and may His blessings be on my Fellow Hubbers whose presence here makes me feel like we are a family.
