August 5, 2011 - Happy 5th Birthday, HubPages!!!
Ladies and gents...your attention, please!
Let's sing the birthday song, with the versions of Alvin and the Chipmunks or with the sultry voice mimicking Marilyn Monroe.
This is a very important day on HubPages family. I am sure they'll be closing the streets of Minna street in San Francisco, California, USA in order to give way to all visiting hubbers and other well-wishers bringing lots of foods and goodies from their own country. Police traffic enforcers will direct all party goers to one 'hotspot' and that's gonna be the HP building.
I'll bring some of my Tropical Cooking samples and put it at the buffet table where the CEO -Founder Paul Edmonson is waiting, while HubPages elites and other staff are moonlighting as ushers and usherettes.
This is sure to be a BIG, BIG, HubPages Meet-Up coinciding the fifth year anniversary since 2006.
I'll be ready with my pen for the autograph signing with my special Hubpages organizer and white t-shirt where fellow hubbers could write their names and greetings as well.
It will be a blast.

I have to Google translate from English to other languages the birthday greetings that's been mushrooming on this hub. You, too can also share and tweet these 'happy birthday' shout-outs.

Positive slices and more icing on the cake
Since my inclusion on HubPages last September, 2009, I've seen and experienced positive changes of nurturing writers-hubbers to the fullest by the HP Staff and management.
Features keep on improving. Tools are upgraded; although, I still believe that news are also an important factor in keeping abreast with any development of written hubs.
It's a sad goodbye to Kontera but challenging welcoem to the Panda algorithm of Google AdSense. HubPages instantly promoted each hubber to have a subdomain for a more traffic, feeds or backlinks on a particular account.
Affiliates, like eBay and Amazon are also countered by HubPages' own Ad Program in order to give fair remuneration or monetization to hubbers who are participating on the program.
HubPages garnered a finalist award and status for Best Consumer Service site this year. This is a very commendable progress of HP family, thanks to the CEO Paul Edmondson and multitude of supporters and financier to reach that rank in just a short span of period.
The resiliency that HubPages management is exercising and implementing keep hubbers to be magnetized by the positive outlook of the site.
If you write original and quality hubs, you'll surely shine in due time. You'll find the unique voice within you that will keep you stand out from the rest.
It's time to party!!!
Oh...in the meantime, I'm trying to get near the HP's buffet table, there are long lines of weel wishers arm with plates, forks and spoons.
What a grandiose cake they've made and decorated here! Can't wait to get a slice of that five-story HubPages cake!!!
Travel Man's wish
I hope HubPages, with the tutelage of CEO Paul Edmondson and family will grow as the most reliable source of information online.
Again, happy birthday...long life, more blessings to come and God Bless!!!
