Hubbers Who Have Been My Support System: Installment Twelve
Can this really be the twelfth installment of this series? My goodness how time flies when you are meeting wonderful people!
I have friends and followers on every continent except Antartica and quite frankly I want to know why Antartica isn’t getting with the program? It would be one thing if all I had were followers but I have formed some incredible friendships with people I have never met in person and I think that is remarkable.
All because Bev talked me into joining this site a little over five months ago. Yes, I dragged my feet and yes, I was reluctant to get involved, all of which shows that Bev is infinitely more aware and intelligent than I am. I’m just a writer; what do I know about socializing?
Well, what I didn’t know about socializing I learned on HubPages and the ride has been a great one. I am in awe of the talent that surrounds me and I am humbled by the way I was accepted and supported by writers who stand head and shoulders above me in this craft.
So let’s turn our attention to some of those writers who also happen to be my friends.
If you are new to this site then I strongly suggest you get involved. Hop on some forums, follow other Hubbers and make meaningful comments. It will all pay dividends in the end and if you are lucky like me you will form friendships that are meaningful and heartwarming.
Shall we begin?
WHAT THE HECK IS A WEESTRO?
I will make it a point to ask Pete some day, but for now he is Weestro and he is one funny guy! Don’t believe me?
As for his other qualities, I guess two come to mind immediately: he is loyal at all times and he takes the time to leave meaningful comments. None of this “nice hub” stuff for Weestro; each and every comment shows he took the time to think about it and to make a connection with me. I really appreciate that kind of follower.
THE BLONDE DYNAMO
Okay, at the risk of hurting the feelings of others, I’m going to go ahead and make this statement: nobody leaves more detailed comments, hub after hub, than my next guest. I thought I was pretty good about leaving decent comments to show support but Amy goes way beyond anything I do here on HubPages.
I invite you to visit http://amybecherer.hubpages.com/hub/Had-to-Take-a-Fall and then try and tell me she isn’t one talented writer. I love her poems because of the cadence and the depth of emotion in each of her works. Please visit her, follow her and then get ready for some great comments when she reads your Hubs.
WHERE THE HECK IS MINNETONKA?
Well, it’s in Minnesota as a matter of fact and in Minnetonka are two twins who write for HubPages. The one I want to talk about today is called, appropriately enough, Minnetonka Twin and I am a big fan.
Check out http://minnetonkatwin.hubpages.com/hub/Sis-and-I-are-Going-to-a-Party-with-John-Mayer-the-Singer and read about an awesome trip to New York that the two twins won; if you are a fan of John Mayer you won’t want to miss this one.
Listen, if you are into intelligent and compassionate people then you really need to get to know this lady and her sister. They are a perfect example of why I’m so high on HubPages.
When I think of this next person I always think of the little coffee shops we used to frequent back in the 60’s. You know the ones…..some folksinger in the background and some very heavy conversation between friends about how to save the world? Well, welcome to Sandrabusby! If you think I exaggerate then read http://sandrabusby.hubpages.com/hub/The-Twelve-Archetypes-A-Road-Map-for-Life.
Sandra leaves thought-provoking comments that will give you food for thought for the rest of the afternoon. I’m kind of humbled by the fact that someone that smart reads my stuff. If you get lucky maybe she will read yours as well.
ROSE MAY WHAT?????
Silly play on words for this next Hubber, Rosemay50 by name. She hails from New Zealand and she is a genuinely nice person. Read http://rosemay50.hubpages.com/hub/Attracting-Hummingbirds-and-Butterflies if you are into butterflies but heck, read anything by her if you are into meeting a very warm human being.
I don’t know how we met; she just showed up one day and has loyally followed me since that day. I’m pretty big on loyalty and I hope she knows how much I appreciate her ray of sunshine every time she visits me.
EXCUSE ME….WHAT IS A B.MALIN?
Well, I happen to know the B stands for Barbara and I’ll tell you what: if you want your humor served up with a “slice and dice” sampling of wit and sarcasm, then this lady is for you. She might even introduce you to her lover if you are really nice.
In fact, go read http://b-malin.hubpages.com/hub/HOME-IS-NOT-ALWAYS-WHERE-THE-HEART-ISby-b-Malin and you can get your daily dose of laughter in one reading.
Why am I appreciative of Barbara? Simply because she is kind and loyal, generous in her comments and as honest as the day is long. Give her a well-deserved visit and you can find out for yourself.
THERE IS A SPY IN OUR MIDST
I am very high on this next Hubber. To my shock I just discovered she has been on HubPages for four years; I guess since I recently discovered her I figured she was new but that is not the case.
I have found this young lady to have some serious depth and wisdom in her work. Pay her a visit at http://unknownspy.hubpages.com/hub/Emptiness-wish-you-were-here and see if you agree with me.
Spy is always so grateful when I visit her site. I find that amazing after four years on HubPages and it speaks loudly of her humility and character. She really does deserve your follow.
A SHOUT OUT TO CONNIE
Her name is Connie Smith and has been with us for three years but I fear not that many people know of her. Let’s change that right now! Visit http://conniesmith.hubpages.com/hub/Mother-Earth----Our-Only-Hope-For-The-Future where she will tell you about Mother Earth.
I have found Connie to have eclectic tastes in her writing; I’m not sure I could describe her range of interests in a brief sentence. However, I can describe her as a follower in one sentence….are you ready….Connie is supportive, uplifting and extremely loyal.
How is that? If you want to become a part of the Connie Show then go visit her now.
THAT’S ALL FOR THIS WEEK
But I promise I’ll return with more great Hubbers who deserve a wide-following.
I am blessed! I don’t know of any other way to describe my experience on HubPages. I should be the poster boy for satisfied customers on this site. I look forward every morning to logging on and finding out what my friends have been up to. I wish I was better at following everyone but I do my best and that’s all I can do. I am fully aware of the time required to follow Hubbers and that’s why I’m so appreciative of these Hubbers who see my name pop up and immediately pay me a visit.
I, too, am loyal, so this Hub is for all of you who have gone out of your way to make me feel appreciated and wanted on HubPages. Bless all of you and may you all find satisfaction on this site as I have.
