HubCamp Event

Greetings Hubbers! I attended Hubcamp Boston 2011 on 5/15. It was a great experience and more then I expected. The event was presented as a powerpoint/discussion moving at a steady speed. There is often lots of time to ask questions and theirs lots to learn you might not know. Everything from titles, to SEO research, to what happens after is covered in this powerpoint. While lots of good information is offered at HubCamp one of the real jewels of it is getting to know fellow Hubbers and the Hubpages staff! I was surprised how easy it was to get along with the staff and others. Being an online writer most people will stay online and never take that step to meet others. I believe this is a must for all serious hubbers, if your lucky enough to have one near you attend it!

My Personal Experience with the Staff and other Hubbers

The most important thing I got out of this HubCamp personally was getting to know the staff! This HubCamp allowed me to see the staff differently. Its not just an outside view of a large commercial website, its real people just like you and me...yes Hubpages Staff do have hearts - no. there not mindless robots. So here are the staff members I meant and some of the Hubbers i got to know:

Simone Smith

How could I describe Simone Smith? When I walked into HubCamp Boston I realized who Simone was by that big black bow on her head (charming). Personally, I don't think pictures do her justice (total cutie). She is very intelligent about her marketing position at Hubpages. Always quick to answer questions before Robin (if she knew them) and happy to help. Simone really gave me an idea that the Hubpages Staff aren't just robots on the other side of the country, but nice, friendly people with engaging and exciting (if not hyper) personalities.

When I first walked into Hubcamp Boston I saw Robin Edmonson. I was thinking "you were there when Hubpages was born! Omg", and of course she was. Robin is very clear and knowledgeable when answering questions. Her presentation was done flawlessly, with allowed time for questions and conversations. Even without checking often she had excellent time management skills to move the presentation on to make sure everything got done.

J.S. Matthew and his wife attended Hubcamp Boston. He has to be one of the nicest people I have ever meant. A freelance writer out of Massachusetts, he has lots of good ideas and was even easy to talk to. Luckily, he had a camera to supply some extra photos. I plan on keeping contact with him and see how far we can go! Hes got wonderful articles about many different things, a must follow.

Carolyn2008 was a hubber who joined a long time ago. I assume she joined the same year I did, but hasn't been active with hubpages since recently. Carolyn writes detailed articles about renting properties, which she used to do! Her writing style is nice, her articles thoughtful, and I hope to see more work from her!

When its all said and done, the Hubpages Staff is just as awesome in real life as there are online. After the presentation we moved down to the bar for a bite to eat and a drink after. Down here is were we got to know about each other a little more personally. I could explain the funny stories and pictures we exchanged but thats just for us. Knowing both the staff and hubbers on a personal level is great, it really makes me feel that the community is strong and just as good as I always known it to be. So until next time Hubcamp,


All of us eating and drinking and talking about everything from Hubpages, to kids, to old teachers even! It was a great day.
