Ode to HubPages Writers

Updated on July 23, 2010

I Always Try to Fine Tune My Writing Skills

There are so many excellent hubbers out there. I love seeing new writers coming in and publishing their first Hub, and I enjoy getting to know the veteran hubbers who plug away and create amazing collections of seriously thoughtful, useful, humorous, and sometimes tragic hubs. With this in mind, I thought I would celebrate writing my 100th hub by celebrating the friends I continue to make along the way.

I’m sure I won’t fit everyone in, but here are some of my favorites:


I adore all of her writing. She’s unafraid to “go there” with very personal topics. She also has an imagination to die for and I’m thrilled with each hub she writes. Take some time and read some of her latest pieces such as “Life Vs. Death”, “Space Circus Comedy”, and” The Flower and The Butterfly”. Then make sure and follow her, you won’t want to miss out on any of her other great hubs.


This lady has class! Whether she’s helping you make some extra money, or writing about serious issues such as eating disorders, she has an engaging style that makes it a pure joy to savor every word. Read some of her hubs such as “How to Make a Plan to Achieve Your Goals”, “Being Fat is Not a Crime”, or “What Lies Behind a Smile?” You’ll be sure to want to become a loyal fan of this lady as well.


A ray of sunshine wrapped up in words here! I love Prasetio30’s positive writing style and he brings beauty and happiness with every hub he writes. Stop in and visit him by reading “The Beautiful Cities beside the River”, “Good Personality for You”, or “How to be a Wise Host”. You’ll understand quite quickly how charming and affecting this hub writer is.


TattoGuy is my favorite “bad boy”. His hubs are hilarious, educational, and inspiring. I can never be quite sure what he is joking about or what he is serious about. I imagine him purveying the local pubs with throngs of women clamoring for his attention at every turn though. Check out a few of his hubs such as “Soccer Tattoos”, “How to Dump Your Girlfriend”, or 3D Tattoo Designs”. Becoming his fan will be quite an adventure!

Don Simkovich

Here is a true guru that writes very helpful and educational hubs about business and success. His hubs have helped me in so many ways, and he writes in an easy to understand way that is easily understanding, yet still entertaining and that’s quite an accomplishment! Learn from the best by reading some of his hubs such as “Cash Flow Tips and Management”, “Web Sites: Building Low Cost and No Cost Sites”, or “Credit Card Industry: They Want You in Debt”. You’ll feel your IQ growing as you continue on as his fan!


Words like innovative, eclectic, and fascinating are good words to describe Richib799’s writing. He brings a great variety of topics to the table. You’ll see what I mean when you stop over and read some of his hubs like “How to Make a Basic Website in Adobe Dreamweaver”, “25 of My Favorite Musician Quotes”, and “Interesting Mayan Facts”.


If HubPages had a Miss Popularity contest, or Miss Congeniality award, Anamika would be sure to win! Her hubs are inspiring for me as we share many of the same interests. Make sure and visit a few of Anamika’s hubpages such as “Wearing Gemstone Jewelry the Right Way”, “Why We Should Buy or Give Gifts”, or “How to be a Good Wife to Your Husband”. I know you’ll love her as much as I do!

Here are a few of my newer friends that deserve some special mention also:

Sweet Chococarrie





Hope Alexander

Patti Ann


This list has so much talent, it’s really incredible. I hope you'll stop by and visit all of them. Tell them HappyHer sent you!

What’s more incredible is that there is so much more talent on HubPages. Perhaps I haven’t met you yet, or perhaps I’ve left you out this time. I’m sorry, I’ll try to catch you at the 200th Hub Mark! In the meantime, I’m looking forward to a great time of staying up to date on the latest hubs.

One of my Favorite Writer's Jokes:

A writer died and was given the option of going to heaven or hell.

She decided to check out each place first. As the writer descended into the fiery pits, she saw row upon row of writers chained to their desks in a steaming sweatshop. As they worked, they were repeatedly whipped with thorny lashes.

“Oh my,” said the writer. “Let me see heaven now.”

A few moments later, as she ascended into heaven, she saw rows of writers, chained to their desks in a steaming sweatshop. As they worked, they, too, were whipped with thorny lashes.

“Wait a minute,” said the writer. “This is just as bad as hell!”

“Oh no, it’s not,” replied an unseen voice. “Here, your work gets published.”

      Hi there, HappyHer . . . this Hub is a testimony to the supportive community here on Hubpages. Thanks so much for taking time to write this for the sake of promoting other writers. That's truly unselfish. Yes, we all should write about our favorite Hubbers at least once a year. Again, thanks and this is an encouragement to help me continue striving to write quality Hubs.

      Thanks for including me in the list of your favorite writes! I should say that I am pleased and flattered by your compliments too though I do not consider myself being any where near to being Miss Popularity. You are a wonderful writer and we share several common interests and that is why your writings always have fascinated me too.

      Many Congratulations for achieving the milestone and I hope to see you achieve many more here. Once again thank you for linking to me. If Elena would not have told I would not have noticed this Hub. So... Thanks a ton to you too Elena!
