Can you help make this the most commented hub on HubPages?

Updated on June 23, 2011
I want to be part of the HubPages party!
I want to be part of the HubPages party! | Source

To me, HubPages is like a fun party where lots of cool people are talking about sophisticated subjects.

And completely ignoring me.

It’s my own fault. I showed up two years ago, wrote three articles, and then disappeared until about two weeks ago. No wonder the most comments I’ve received on my hubs numbers only six.

Well, one way to become the life of the party is to run a game, which is what I’m doing.

The objective of this challenge is simple: to make this little hub the most commented one on HubPages.

You can play by leaving a comment. In exchange, I’ll visit at least one of your hubs to get to know you.

At minimum, please put your city and state, or if you’re from outside the US, your city and country. Like this: Placentia, California.

You can guess is my city and state. I’m located in Southern California.

I’ll update the comment tally at the top of the article, assuming any comments are left.

Let’s see how many comments we can get on one hub!

Update

6/22/2011 - 8 comments, double yesterday's!
6/21/2011 - Lots of visitors but only 4 comments. Please comment when you visit.

      I'm first! Therefore, I'm exempt from having to write anything witty.

      Interesting concept ... wish I had thought of it first.

      Surely if you responded to at least one comment every day this would bring the Hub to the top of HP's hidious Home Page. Why did they feel it necessary to copy FaceBook ? I thought Hub Pages was for the intellegent !

      Not many comments on this hub. That is surprising since it is an easy read. So let's see if we can get it in front of more hubbers.

      I'm ARLENE, and I'm from SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA. I will turn 54 next month. WHEN NO ONE'S LOOKING, I TAKE CANDY FROM STRANGERS. This is my newest goal in life besides getting in at McDonald's on the night shift. I watch "The Young and the Restless" and will admit it. I am retired and live in my bathrobe. I start my day at 9 a.m. or 10 a.m. If I don't have anything planned, I return to bed.

      LET'S SHAKE UP THIS PARTY. OR I'M GOING BACK TO BED. IF SUPERMODELS CAN DO THIS, SO CAN I . . .

      Well, Rochelle Frank, I wrote this hub a gazillion years ago, when none of my hubs were getting hits. Now I have several hubs with over 100 comments, so this particular hub needs far more comments to reach that number.

      Just a little status report for everyone. This hub is up to 59 comments, most of which happened in the past 24 hours. But, my most commented hub is this one, with 154.

      alocsin, I am afraid of rides. Except the tame ones. Otherwise, I will be throwing up all over the place. Don't count on DRAMAMINE. But you can always send me to the snack bar for the $$$$$. Yes, I do need to replace my Mickey Mouse hat with my name embroidered on the back of it.

      Hello Alocsin, I have to hand it to you-great game to get to pass around, haha. I voted it funny. Although getting the views from Google and the recognition in the HP community, (as stated in your hub), is 'serious' business, humor goes a long way and making it a 'fun' job lightens the load. Way to go (UP)

      I think somebody said it, but you are most clever. :-) I'm from the suburbs of Chicago. We had Spring in March and April has felt like Fall. People in this area are fast, fast, fast--not taking much time to slow down. I want to go and live where the town shuts down on "good wave" days so everybody can go surfing. Not that I know how to surf...but it would still be nice!

      Hi Alocsin.great new idea,openning this page.

      Is there any reason to limit comments " at minimum ?"

      Seek-n-find went over " minimum" and her comment is making " game" more interesting .

      How about to challenge comments to practical experiences shared , helping others :

      a) to get started if not sure to be qualified ;

      b) let a dialog going on. Etc.

      Can cutting corners be beneficial ? Do not waste what has left.
