You Can't Tell Everyone About HubPages
It's our little Secret! If "the mob" comes to HubPages to hack into computers, steal identities or hook up with hubbers, then good bloggers with something interesting or necessary to say will go unnoticed - soon falling silent altogether. We have something good here at HubPages! Let's not forget that or lose it, for that matter.
I enjoy reading good blogs on HubPages. Few blogs are already futile, uninformative, reckless and incoherent. However, most blogs impart true learning experiences. For example, I recently read a blog on a great rock 'n roll legend and my thoughts drifted so far ... I pondered the old time artists and their impact on modern-day music genres. When I came back, I felt the need to commend the blogger on a job well done. He started following my blogs in return. As he gained free advertisement, I increased my income potential. How convenient! Good reading and good people too! The relationships here are quite uncanny. I don't know him personally and he doesn't know me. Yet, somehow we're in a business relationship, theoretically. If the mob comes to HubPages for everything but blogging, then these unique moments of enjoying good content and building new relationships will be lost... forever.
Some blogs are so funny, I literally tear up from laughing so hard. I'll be bookmarking those for a rainy day! Some blogs stir up such intense emotions. For example, while religion blogs can inspire, those political blogs can really make one see red or blue or white or black or green, etc. I limit my reading time for those hubs. I enjoy reading the recipe blogs until my tummy audibly agrees. Does anyone know how to make mud pie, by the way? Travel blogs are always fun. I take so mcuh interest in reading blogs about far-away exquisite beaches, grand festivals across the globe, European tours and luxurious getaways - trips I probably couldn't take anyway. So please continue to painfully pile these blogs on. Some hubs are very informative, detailing stats, facts and quotes which I do appreciate. I tend to believe that most numbers don't lie, but who am I kidding. Other blogs make you think, "What planet is this hubber on?"
You see, blogging provides readers with a window into the mind of the writer. Readers are able to dissect the writer's personality by every word chosen for use. While certain personalities may choose to use dull wording throughout their blogs, fun-filled hubbers explore their quirky sides at times. Angrier hubbers can be somewhat overly critical. The calm and confident personalities somehow keep you interested for a while. The "white jackets", as I call them, are literally lost in direction and words. The dictionary has ample words for use to convey "crazy". The antics of the mob are indeed quite bazar.
I, personally, am not interested in dealing with the crazies. So, I repeat, if the mob comes to HubPages, how will the madness be contained? Will HubPages become the Hubward for patients suffering from Typing Insanity? Will we have to read and type phrases when we "check-in" towards assessing our "blogging state of mind"? I cringe at the thought. But how will HubPages know?
Don't get me wrong, I highly regard our freedom of speech. I believe that any information should have its just review. However, if the mob comes to HubPages, then every single blog should indeed be reviewed - thoroughly and carefully again and again, scrutinizing for the slightest hint of unordinary (or crazy) minus those submissions by overly-creative minds. Although, creative writing can still be subjective. Either way, if writing is art and art is undefined, then who am I to judge? If the mob comes to HubPages, how will anyone even know? Why should anyone care? HubPages isn't such a secret after all.
Suppose the mob did come to HubPages - spears and pitchforks and all. Can they really threaten the HubPages environment, stealing from the wealth of knowledge built on these lands by the very fingers that type these blogs - your fingers and mines? Nay, I say nay! While our hearts and minds unite, the mob's advances we must fight. Banding together in stupendous array to strengthen the mob arrival's delay. HubPages will not be defeated today.
But then again, is the mob already here?
