Hubbing : Reflections On My 100th Hub
The Beginning Until Now
Reflecting on what I was going to write about when it came to writing my 100th hub and actually it is 110 , I decided that it was time for reflection. My journey has been a long one and just like Egypt was not built in a day , my hubs have not been built that quickly either. I have shared a part of my novel and gave you a taste of what the story is about. I have written about your inner beauty which was one of my first hubs published. Beauties only skin deep is a memorable one , on the day that one was published Google crawled all over it and the numbers changed in a split second. I was ecstatic watching the numbers fly! I have written about ladies panties the hub Ooh La La La Naughty Little Panties is still ranking in Yahoo and Google. Talked about Christianity and what my beliefs are, tried to figure out where the meaning of cocktail came from in the hub entitled Pass Me A Cocktail Please, wrote about one of the Greatest Elvis Impersonators Of All Time Charlie Franks and made everyone aware of Cyberstalking which is rampant on the web and I have experienced it first hand. I have shared my feelings and emotions when I could not take it anymore in the hub I Cry and on that day I was sobbing as I wrote it and so many came to the rescue. So many have taught me to use "we instead of "I" and I am still finding that I get the word "there" and "their" mixed up. The forums have brought me closer to so many and I have given advice to new hubbers. It has been 2 years and I have seen people come and go and have learned that sometimes they leave because they cannot take the drama anymore but it certainly does not make them any lesson of a person. I have seen others be accused of things and seen hubbers take sides or try to beat a new person down forgetting that they were once new themselves. I have noticed that sometimes my writings appear professional and other times they appear basic, it really doesn't matter to me so long as I continue to write. I have not judged others for what they write as each individual as there own style, and on occasion I have found that I have judged someones article and thank God when they send me an e-mail asking for an explanation. Reflecting over the past two years I have come to realize that it is not about the money, it is about the passion that burns from within when it comes to writing. The flame that keeps moving and the fans that keep pushing me to write more. Recently I had considered quitting Hubpages due to personal reasons but when I looked at the numbers in the right hand corner of my profile I realized it could not and would not happen. Did Walt Disney stop when the pressure was on? He kept on until he had Disneyland. Did the Egyptians quit building Pyramids when they were tired? Absolutely not and what both of these have in common is that they made history, it took them time but they accomplished there goals. I have set goals and they are attainable, I have a dream and I will catch that falling star it may take me time, but it will be accomplished. So long as I continue to write, I will continue to learn so here is to another 100 hubs and striving for my goals. Thank you to Ralwus, BlondePoet, CindyVine, Mighty Mom, Brenda Scully, Cobraski, Don Simkovich,Tony0724. HawkesDream, Janetta, Candie Veach, Bad Company99, Goldentoad who is no longer with us, Pest who pops in and out, Julie Braden, Maddie for getting me through the dark times on HP, and the entire staff at HP for making me believe that this is the best place to be as well as the other 770 fans that I have gained. One day when my novel hits the silverscreen and they ask me how I started it is certain that I can say that it all began the day the door opened at hubpages and they let me in.
