The Amazing Inspiration of Hubs

Updated on December 8, 2009

Initial Excitement

I am still fairly new to Hubpages.  Finding a site where anyone could write was an exciting find. Initially,  I read a few hubs, but mainly I wanted to write. Ideas were bustling in my head, and I published my first three hubs shortly.

About a week later, I paused to read. And, when I did, I was amazed at what I found within the confines of this site. Soon, I found that I enjoyed reading the works of talented Hubbers as much, or more then I enjoyed writing.

There are hubs on this site that are totally inspiring.

The Sun may set, but God is always with us.
The Sun may set, but God is always with us.

Prayers and Memories

There are Hubs that capture every emotion. I was brought to tears by a hub about a mother's memories of her now deceased son. The hub is entitled "A Split Second Tribute to My Son, Kevin", and is by "KCC Big Country."

Another amazing read is a heart felt account of the Payne Stewart plane crash. The hub is called "Payne Stewart Plane Crash", and is by James A. Watkins. Reading this hub transports you back to that fateful day, and makes you feel as if you were there.

Being a Christian, I was excited to find so many great hubs about Christianity. One of the first I read was "Does God Hate Religion" by Ken R. Abell. This is an uplifting hub about God's desire to have a personal relationship with each of us.

Then recently I read another great hub about becoming a Christian called "God Incidents". This hub also tells a story of profound loss, but also of hope. It is by Loriamoore.

According to Wikipedia, inspiration refers to an "unconscious burst of creativity." Because of this, true inspiration can not be faked, or manufactured. What makes these and many other hubs so inspiring is that they are written based on real life experiences, and knowledge. It is like being friends with someone who has an amazing story.

These hubbers, and others have many more exceptional hubs to be discovered. And, you can put away the kleenex, there are also just as many fun, and light hearted hubs, that are also very good reads.





Lighter Reads, and Informative Reads

Does anyone really like to go to the dentist? I for one don't, and for a child it is worse. I think everyone would enjoy "Laughing Gas and The Dentist: A Horror Story" by wannabwestern.

I am a mother, so I also enjoyed "Being Mom," by Duchess OBlunt. It is about the joys and rewards that come from motherhood.

Since I had recently redone my own kitchen, I loved reading "My Affordable DIY Kitchen Remodel", by Robertbloggert.

Kazeemjames01 recently wrote an informative article about "socks". These were not the warm fuzzy kind, these are internet socks. The title is "The Use of Socks for Internet Configuration."

And I can't forget my sister's cat Treysome who is now writing from a cat's perspective. Trey wrote, "Perspective- It's a Hard Life" Trey is a huge cat, who is constantly making a New's Years resolution to lose weight.

Keep Up the Great Work!

We all have different tastes, and ideals.  I find that I am drawn to hubs that are written with a Christian perspective, but also fun to read hubs, and informative hubs.

I'm still not sure that I agree with the "Thirty Hubs in Thirty Days Idea."  I think the emphasis should be on quality, not quantity.  The best hubs will always be based on what we know well, believe in, and have spent time to write well.

Thank you fellow hubbers for all your great articles.  I could not mention them all here.  I am still in the process of reading.

Keep up the great work!

      Most people don't realize that writing like this is a lot more fun than the social networking sites. That's my opinion anyways.

      Susan, I had the same experience with Hubpages.

      At first I wrote one or two, but didn't stop to read....and now I can hardly get down to any writing 'cos I spend the time I have reading the great articles that are to be found. The links to other writers, hubs, forums, questions etc. are endless and I just can't keep focused.

      It's crazy! I'm becoming addicted to HUBLAND!

      Aunt Mama, you write great Hubpages! My Mama looks forward to seeing you on Tuesday. Keep up the totally amazing, inspirational writing! Thanks for getting me started with Hubpages. I love and miss you and Uncle Mike. With love, your nephew-son, Trey. P.S. I could use some better tasting food than the cat food my mama gives me!

      Thank you for the mention Susan! My tribute hub is one of those things you do that you never realize the impact of until much later. It was simply me being grateful for the time I had with a son I wasn't prepared to lose.

      Inspiration is everywhere if only we look for it. There is tons of it at HubPages.

      Good job, Susan. Thank you for the mention. You are right about so much inspirational & informative stuff here. I read KCC Big Country's tribute to her son & was very moved also. I can't remember if I left a comment - probably should check.
