You Can't Tell Everyone About HubPages

Updated on July 26, 2014

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?

      Love love love this! Must concur, that in the past eight months I have come to love our hub pages community, and you're right about the crazies as well, and since I have enough of those in my "real" life, I definitely would hate to see them in my "hub" life. Great read! voted up, awesome, and useful! I am looking forward to reading more by you!

      ....well your hub name certainly tells it all - you have the information, the insight, the perception, the truth, the honesty and the integrity - and it's so nice to meet up with you .....

      It's true. Some other sites I have been on, now only talk about useless things and personal items. I really don't want to know what a hubber did with who, I want to read interesting and intelligent hubs. I hope hubpages remains a secret only to writers who actually want to write!

      It's been said that Earth is the insane asylum of the universe. We certainly have a diverse group down here and each with their own ideas and ideals. Some follow like lemmings and others lead. Some live to dissect the thoughts and lives of others and every now and then we have a few with an original idea or two that shakes the cages of those who've yet to have an original idea. So, who is to say one belongs in solitary confinement while another emphatically states that the work and words of the one you want to lock up is in fact cutting edge and substantiated explicitly?

      Great hub! I particularly loved the line, "blogging provides readers with a window into the mind of the writer" - very well described. I am now a big fan and eager to read more of your brilliant work. :) vocalcoach

      One reason we have hub hopping is to bring the "crazies" to the attention of the HubPages administrators. We are their extra eyes and ears. Each of us can have a part in keeping the community sane.

      Great hub and I can't agree with you more that we have a Great thing here at Hubpages. There will always be the crazies or those who don't write well but for the most part, this is a community of mostly great people and awesome writers. Thanks:)

      I just came off of a rather harsh conversation thread on FB about the whole 'birther' thing and even had a Constitutional clash with those who insist that a person's parents must be citizens in order for their US born son or daughter to become president. I suggested there might be some racism involved and they tore into me like a dagger in cheese! It's good to be back on HubPages where at least the insanity is civil. Good Hub!

      miss info what a thought! I suppose there is a bit of good in everything and a bit of bad in allot of things. I guess discernment would be good a good thing. We do reap what we sow, it always turns out that way in time. Hubpages is awesome and I believe we will hold our own. In Christ. Sending hugs. I love ya and I joined your club. Many Blessings

      Hi Miss,

      Great Hub. You're right! It is a great place to "Hub" and meet interesting people and read informative articles.

      I hope it doesn't get ruined like Christmas did for me. Too many commercials and items taking away the true meaning of the day...or as in this case, the HubPage. (:

      Good piece of writing.

      peace to you...always,

      Thanks for your comments. I really dig the Hubpages community. Unfortunately, over time many of these blog sites become contaminated spam lodges. I hope Hubpages is already working on ways to keep this site a great place to write.

      Hello Miss Info: I am glad you are round these blogs and offering a fresh and unique perspective. I would have liked to know more about why the aversion of mob-bloggers? Not that I want a laissez faire of unnecessary info or whatever, but since I spend most of my time putting together long articles(which I hope will serve the future generations), I only hope you find what I write about relevant. Thank you for increasing my paltry fan base, I will also reciprocate. I like your hub above because its a succinct precis. Somehow, I concur with your assertions. Great article, and thanks again.

      Good hub.I agree the potential for establishing relationships with fellow hubbers is endless. I had the pleasure of attending a Hub Camp a few months ago - in Dallas. I am looking forward to getting together with a couple of the wonderful people I met there. I met people there that could definately add to my network. Oh and by the way, thank you for the follow, I am always pleased when I get a new follower.

      Hello Miss Info: Thanks for the follow. I am following and enjoy your writing. I appreciate your reference to compulsive typists without content. "Somehow - we are in a business relationship" investing our time in each other. Keep writing.
