Thanks Billybuc for being true to yourself & to all of us hubbers

Ok for starters I would like to say thanks for being so insightful to leave your awesome message for me in my hub recently today. You are truly a really nice person indeed, judging by all the truthfulness you've expressed here in your hub.

I been through a great deal in life myself, and it’s definitely from that selfish pride thing, as you've expressed here in your dealings with alcoholism.

This hub you've written has truly come from the heart, and can only have been created out of pure experience in life, and it seems that you have become truly successful at finding your place in the world, which surely doesn't manifest itself in a financial means, but by the actual values of your true life acceptance and experience of truth, as they say in that great quote, "To hold these truth to be self evident" you my friends have made it to a point of maturity in life & self victory as well.

This all surely came at a high cost to you judging by what you've been through, that most people cannot bear to go through or even survive to tell it, and unfortunately many people never seem to see things as you have done today.

Sharing with others is my specialty - Living room


Why I write hubs about hubs

Well I started a 10 part hub series about other people's extraordinary hubs, that I found would be interesting to share with others. This is the main reason why I love writing hubs about hubs, but the other reason is due to the fact that paying it forward, is a very important factor in the whole networking thing on the web, and without doing so it goes to show that, that person isn't truly being fair to his or her community of fans, and those that they appear to be following.

With that said I must say that this hub I've read was truly sensational for many reasons, Billybuc is a normal guy, I just recently met him on hubpages, and I believe through the help of the Facebook Professional BS Writers group. I think I've seen him a few times in the questions & answers area, answering many questions, and probably in other locations on hubpages, but what pointed him out to me was recently when he left me a few cool hub comments in my hubs, from meeting me in the FB group I posted above.

This is my way of paying it forward for folks on hubpages, and hopefully many other new comers like myself can follow my lead, and I do know that I'm not the first or the last to do such a thing, but I simply wish more sharing in this manner can be done so that everyone can get into the true spirit of the hubpages community.

Discovering hubs is quite a cool thing, so if your new to it, then here's a cool video to learn all about it, its for true onlinewriters

      Hi Kelleyward, wow didn't expect to see you here so soon, I just released the hub. It's nice of you to come from Facebook to visit here, thanks for the support I truly appreciate it.

      Yeah Billybuc is a genuinely nice person so I gravitate more towards people like him, because it matches my personality, and who I truly am in real life.

      Plus he's been sharing with me recently in high volumes, and so this is the other reason why it is imperative to pay it forward even further & I know he's being real when he does it all for sure.

      I'm just glad people are noticing all of our cumulative activities lately, because its really awesome what all these networking capabilities have done for us all today.

      I'm loving every bit of it, from FB to G+, to Pinterest, and all the way back to hubpages, and I'm sure there's many more folks are tied into. It's Fantabulous!!!!!

      CouldExplorer--I agree with what you say about Billybuc. He is an incredible person and writer, and he has become a friend. It IS hard to get around to everyone. I'm in the BS group you mention. Perhaps I'll see you there sometime. I pop in and out....

      Hi @Victoria Lynn, its something that the hubpages community has helped me to realize.

      People here are truly kind and selfless for the most part, and its only right to give credit where credit is due, thank you for giving my hub here a chance, but without Billybuc's inspiration, it would not have been written, so all praise and credit goes to him for his honesty, and superb writing ability.

      I may have met you in the past I think on hubpages, but if not its nice to meet you, its so many people to focus on, and so I will take it all in slowly but surely, and will get to your hubs for sure as well.

      Thanks Billybuc, I try to keep it real with all of those who care to communicate with me. Its not easy to read every hub I come in contact with, nor is it easy to respond to every single comment, but some folks definitely deserve more praise for their personal efforts on hubpages, and elsewhere.

      Your efforts on Facebook has helped me to locate you here, and also your reading of a few of my hubs, and the commenting, and so I have no choice but to repay this favor, because its truly a selfless thing that was done for me. You deserved this hub and so hopefully others from my connections can see what you have achieved as well in life, maybe even learn from your experiences.

      Thanks for being such a good sport, and for being real to us all, your a pretty awesome guy Billy, talk to ya soon in many of your other hubs.

      What an incredibly nice act my friend! We barely know each other through HubPages and yet you took the time to do such a nice thing. I'm having trouble finding the words to express what this means to me.

      Here's to many more shared experiences, Michael, and a lifelong friendship! Again, thank you!
