Has HubPages Lost Writers Over The Past Year?


I searched for stats regarding how many active Hubbers there are, and I was surprised to see that someone posted 13 months ago that there were about 97,000 more Hubbers than HubPages stats list today. I have notices some Hubbers have left for various reasons, but I didn't realize so many left over the past year. Did I get something wrong?

    Writers are getting discouraged. There are plenty of other places to write.

    Thanks fort the confirmation Goody. I will check out your Hub. I wonder if HP management is having second thoughts about some of the changes they've made over the past year?
