Missing You - Hubbers

Updated on January 12, 2010

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

  • · connie smith
  • · dawei888
  • · emohealer

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.


Impressive Stats

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!

      A great hub and thanks for sharing.

      Take care ;

      LOL, I still can't believe my horsey idea was such a suggest. Obviously the WRITING and picture layout take more credit then the suggestion. Glad others have checked out your hubs, they are well-written and totally worth a read!

      Wow! I just looked back and your hub author score is 100. I am not surprised. You have really been putting out some good hubs. BTW, I thank you for your plug here lol. It has increased my traffic this week. Also worth mentioning, my A-B Clydesdale hub has been far and away the most read hub I have done. To all who do not know, Jen "assigned" that topic to me.

    • Jen's Solitude profile image

      Jen's Solitude 8 years ago from Delaware

      WOW! A letter and two comments . . . after all this time I feel like you've written a hub! lol It is so good to "read" you my friend. I am so sorry you have been going through so much, especially with your own health and the health of your beloved grandson. Isn't it good that life is constantly changing so that you can look forward to your life settling down in the future? Until then, you must slow down and allow your body to recover, the longer you delay it, the longer it will take, so just give in to it and do what you must to feel better. I will even sacrifice you writing a hub that is just how important your health is right now! Thanks so much for checking in both here and by e-mail it is so good to hear from you once more.

      Like Emohealer, I was quite humbled when I read this. For others who read this: Jen was my first "fan" and has been the source of so much encouragement to me. I haven't left Hubpages, I've merely needed a vacation. After having been so ill, the big move, the holidays and my 6 month old grandson ending up in ICU with respiratory problems himself left me physically and emotionally exhausted. I am almost settled into my new apartment and ready to get back to writing. I have so many topics to write about, I don't know where to start! See how you encourage me, Jen? I am one of the luckiest writers on hubpages to be able to call you friend and mentor. Thank you.

      Jen, there's no Hub, yet, on this project, although there will be at its end. Meanwhile, I did post to the forums about it, and you can find that thread here:

    • Jen's Solitude profile image

      Jen's Solitude 8 years ago from Delaware

      I am sure she will appreciate seeing your comment Sally. I anxiously await her return and am assuming and hoping she is incommunicado because of relocation issues and not health issues.

      What an interesting project you have begun. I must check out your profile page to see if you have a hub on the subject.

      Thanks for leaving a comment!

      I'm so glad I found this Hub, Jen. I've embarked on a personal project to acknowledge every fan / follower of mine here on HP. I got to Connie's name on my alphabetical list and, after looking at her hubtivity and last published Hub, I was kind of stumped about what to say. Then I found this Hub of yours and realized I was not the only one missing her good works and words. I, too, hope to see her back soon. And now I know exactly what to say..."You are missed." Thanks, Jen.

      My pleasure emievil. David's friendliness and his helpful advice was appreciated by many. Glad you saw the link to PGrundy as well.

      Dawei was my first five followers when I first signed on HubPages and I can remember telling myself how friendly and welcoming he is. Thanks for featuring him in this hub Jen's Solitude. Also, thanks for putting in the link to Pam.

      I deff recall Connie and Dawe as they were also really nice people but on Hubs people come and people go, tis a shame but such is life, deff miss them though !

      Jen's Solitude 8 years ago from Delaware

      Sue/emohealer! I have one word for your reply, "YES!" lol

      You have been missed my friend, welcome back and I hope you stay away from that place that makes you feel lost.

    • emohealer profile image

      Sioux Ramos 8 years ago from South Carolina


      How humbling indeed is this hub!!! The only appropriate response would be to indulge such a heartfelt article. I truly had no idea how inspiring my hubs may be to others, although the comments always indicated so. I have started so many, and placed stumbling blocks in front of they told me in the military the maximum effective range of an excuse is 0, so I won't waste anyones time with them.

      Thank you so much for your appreciation and your deep sincere expression of it. Thank you also for your encouragement or the "boot" to get me going again. I have been lost in a "funny" place of limbo, thank you for finding me there and bringing me back. Bless you Dar my friend, what an inspiration you truly are!!!

      Thanks Cydni, I hope they pop in soon, I am getting ready to issue APB's for all 3 of them. LOL.

      I am good, I hope you are well also!

      Very sweet hub, Jen! I'm sure these writers will appreciate your praise and be touched that you miss them.

      Hope you're well,

      Ah, the second time PGrundy has been mentioned. I happen to know she is here, for those who are not aware:

      Dolores, you are right, because a site this big will have many favorites to follow. :-)

    • Dolores Monet profile image

      Dolores Monet 8 years ago from East Coast, United States

      Well, all good things must come to an end. I have my own favorites that I sorely miss. PGrundy was one. I guess you just have to move on and locate new favorites!

      For sure ethel! Still I will be glad when one or all of them checks in. Might have to do some e-mailing if I don't hear from them soon!

      Hi Linda! David has a huge fan/follower list that grows everyday. I am hoping we hear from him soon and that he reports to us that he is well. Thanks for your post! Very cool speaking Chinese to your son! (-:

      Linda Myshrall 8 years ago

      Hey Jen! I too have missed dawei888, and for all of the same reasons... I still smile from the memory of the look on my nephew's face when I told him "I love you" in Chinese... a skill I acquired from one of dawei888's hubs. Until today, I had not yet had the pleasure of bumping into emohealer or connie smith... I'm off to do that now. Thanks for this hub- I really liked it!

      Good Morning Paradise7 and BkCreative!

      I see I am not alone in noticing the absence of favorite hubbers. Thanks for adding your missing favorites to the list, perhaps they will read this and feel appreciated.

    • BkCreative profile image

      BkCreative 8 years ago from Brooklyn, New York City

      Yes, I have quite a few favorites too, Jen - like where is Laringo? - as a matter of fact I just visited one of her hubs and told her she was missed - and well, now that you mention it - there are so many I can think of.

      More than likely they are involved in some fabulous things and are just so busy right now and will be back.

      In the meantime - well we have each other.

      Thanks for such a nice thoughtful hub!

      I understand exactly how you feel, Jen, though I'm not familiar with those particular hubbers. I miss Pam Grundy and Catherine R, too, just like you miss your favorites. I don't know where they went or why...
