My Hub Score Is Dropping! Help!

Updated on December 3, 2008

Started Low And Started Building, How Exciting!-Then Nobody Came And It Started Dropping, Well That Sucks!

Hey fellow hubsters or whatever we call ourselves. I just started making hubs a couple days ago and although I came here for a totally different reason, I found out that I really love doing this! It helps keep the creative juices flowing if you know what I mean. After my first one I thought, "that was kinda cool" and started thinking of another one right away. After searching around at all of your great hubs and joining a couple fan clubs I got to thinking about one that really meant something to me. It took me a couple of days to create that one and when I finished I thought "man I hope people like this". It's the one I wrote about my wife and I being together since we were in Jr. High school named Started Dating When We Were 14 And We're Better Than Ever 30 Years Later. I was so excited after I published it and started watching as my Hub score started to rise. 85, then 87, oh my gosh it hit 90! I was really psyched. Then I noticed that nobody was even reading my stuff and I felt sad. Now my Hub score is starting to drop! Where is the humanity in all of this?! Nobody's reading and my score is dropping! This site sucks!

That's the downside to doing these hubs. You create this thing and call it your own and your proud of it, like a parent with an ugly kid. You don't know if it's good or bad but it's yours and that's all that matters. So stop making people like me sad and read our hubs too. And tell us that you love us even if you don't. What difference is it going to make to the world if you tell someone a sweet little lie? I'll tell you what it will do, it will make someone like me not feel so insecure about his work. It's not like I'm a professional writer or anything but I want to fit in. Throw the dog a bone for cryin out loud!

Okay, I'll stop wasting your time with my nonsense. I hope you all know I wasn't serious about any of this except for the parts that I was really upset about. No, but honestly, I really do enjoy doing this even if nobody cares to read them. I hope you all realize that I was only kidding about being upset. I will say that it presents a challenge to me to make a better hub and to interact more with more of you so I guess the social part of the website is working just fine. Keep on Hubbin, Hubsters.

I just realized that if I publish this with so few words, my Hub score is gonna tank. Oh Crap! Oh well I guess there are worse things that could happen. Later!

      Thank you W.M. and thanks for commenting on more than one of my Hubs.

      JamaGenee-I'm not looking for pity fans...well I guess I kinda am so thanks. :) Hope you find it easier to launch your ugly children to us in the future.

      Great hub, Jim! You said what many of us feel when we finally hit Publish and put our "ugly child" out there for all of HubLand to look at.

      Thanks Lgali. It seems like I wrote this so long ago but it's only been a couple of weeks. I had to go back and read it myself. I'm glad you liked it.

      No people, huh? Ohhhh, you might be outta luck then. Just kidding! We hubbers still know how to zing/torture/annoy/compliment people without the use of a third party. All part of our creative natures. We offer the personal touch for all those who have not yet acquired their own 'people'. It's our way of giving back, I suppose.

      Sorry rockinjoe, just havin' some fun. You know how it is.

      Shirley, you're so sweet! I really needed the tissue too. I understand it's difficult to read everything. I'm going through that too. I do have one problem though, I don't have any people for your people to get in touch with. That's why I wrote this! :) Thanks for taking the time to comment. It means a lot to me.

      Aw, poor Hubber Jim! Here's a tissue, wipe that tear. We'll be around from time to time. It's just difficult trying to read all 40 billion hubs here, sometimes we get behind in our reading. And now that Christmas is upon us, well you know what that does to everyone's schedule.

      Don't worry so much, we've pencilled you in. Our people will definitely get in touch with your people!

      We have as saying in South Africa which just about sums this up - ya, well, no, fine! Whatever that means.

      Keep hubbin and I'll join your fan club now.

      Love and peace,

      Don't make promises you're not going to keep gwendy. I don't know what I'll do if I don't see you on my fan list. Hey! I could write another Hub about how you let me down. :)

      Thanks for the comment!
