Missing You - Hubbers
Here on Hubpages, I have found a little of everything I appreciate most about writing and writers.
Unfortunately, I have been painfully aware of the absence of 3 inspirational writers and so would like to acknowledge them and let them know they are missed.
In all honesty, I wouldn’t mind it in the least, if this hub gave them a little nudge as far as writing something - anything – is concerned. I would enjoy not feeling as if I am going through withdrawal because it has been so long since they have published here.
It would be better still if I wasn’t the only one who missed their creativity and writing, so hopefully an added comment or two from others, will help them to come back more quickly.
Where Are They Now?
Do you remember

Of course you do! I remember them too. I have missed each of them for different reasons.
The three of them have two things in common
First, I met all 3 of them here on Hubpages and second, all 3 have moved since I initially met them. Quite a coincidence I grant you.
I totally get how hectic life becomes when you are in transition and then resettling, working, etc. etc. So I have been trying to do something I have never been very good at, patiently wait for them to return.
Well my patience has been exhausted, I miss them and I’m ready to make it very clear in the most public way I can think of.
I will be the first to admit that I do not read nearly as much as I would like. Finding both the time and energy is more difficult than I ever imagined. So I am very picky as to what I read, when I read it, and how long I spend reading.
My first priority has always been to reading that which rejuvenates me- body and spirit. My spiritual life and my spiritual hope is what keeps my positive attitude flowing. It is priority number one for me and I will give it my attention when I haven’t the energy for any other type of reading. I can describe myself as dedicated, in that regard.
After I have satisfied my spiritual appetite, I spend what eye strength and cognitive awareness that remains in reading about other areas of interest. I am not overly curious about generalized areas. Some subjects I have a personal objection to and so would not read about- no matter who wrote about it. Other times I love being absorbed in the dissection process that keeps me totally enthralled when I find a writer who hits me where I live. Others help me to develop specific areas of my writing, so I follow their example in writing interesting character descriptions or narratives. Then there are the poets, who always hold a special place in my heart as I strive to learn from them.
My list of three meet my areas of interests as well as appeal to me because of their writing styles and intelligence. I enjoy learning something new from each one of them, and have truly missed their presence on Hubpages.

In All Fairness
Of course it would be wrong to imply they have been totally gone from the community, as that is not the case. Two of the three have graciously and faithfully commented on my hubs. Which I so appreciated, especially since they have written no new hubs for me to read.(Ahem)
One hubber has promised she’d be writing soon. I’m still waiting, thus this not too subtle reminder.
One has been interviewed and in turn interviewed a fellow hubber, both of which I totally enjoyed reading and I suppose they come close to a hub, though not really.
The only male I have mentioned has been busy learning new things, which I totally get, yet still miss his presence here educating us in his no- strings attached way.
A look at their profile pages reveals I am not alone in “following” these three amazing folks. Although their combined time on Hubpages comes to just 2 years and 7 months their contribution to this community has been noticeably appreciated.
- Combined, they have no less than 933 followers between them.
- They have managed to keep their author score in the 90’s even though they haven’t published an actual hub in some time.
- They have produced a total of 135 hubs all combined.
Do you remember being helped in some way by connie, dawei888 or emohealer?
I can say they each helped me with either timely advice and/or technical know-how and with support, compassion and friendship. Their humor, sensitivity, common sense, and willingness to share, is what I miss the most about them.
So won’t you come back my friends . . . soon?
I’m glad the last time I checked you were all doing well, I just hope you feel appreciated and missed, maybe even enough to write us a little something to hold us over.
To all my other favorites, who have not disappeared from HP, know that I appreciate you too. Sometimes it’s the squeaky wheel that must get the grease, or in this case 3 such wheels, but that doesn’t mean I am not mindful of your contribution to my well-being and enjoyment of this site. Therefore I thank you most sincerely!
