Hi, to My Valued Followers:
I have something personal to say to ALL OF YOU, MY VALUED FOLLOWERS. I know that it's been some time since I did this, but bad or good, here goes . . ."I aplogize to all of you for my hubs NOT being of Top Notch Quality in the past few weeks.
For this, I have no excuse. But I do have this for you: I give you MY WORD that I will do better, for you deserve a lot better than I am turning-out on HubPages.
"Thank YOU for all of your support, following and Friendship.
I do VALUE you all more than you can fathom.
What ever is going on with you. I send you prayers and strength! Sometimes our lives smack into life situations and *life happens*. I am sure you will find your way back. If you need, grab our hand and hold on tight. Know that we care about you and everything will turn out right!
Shalom, my friend.
Thanks, Jo_ a lot of physical-related things are going on with me. These include the fibromyalgia and neurothopy getting worse and that prevents me from turning out a more-quality hub. I cant focus and fight pain at the same time. This was just my way of teling all of my followers that I AM trying to do better.
I know what you mean. I have the same thing because of all the writing and crocheting I did last year. I sold 50 blankets. So, if I could sit long enough, I would like to do this again. The typing doesn't seem to affect the shoulder much. Now, it is a matter of the carpel tunnel, I am waiting for the doctor to tell me I am getting. My spine looks like a pretzel. Heating pad helps! I have used green tea and occasionally a half a glass of white wine. I drink it slowly. I spread it out over three hours, just enjoy and meditate.
My biggest relief is to stretch as tolerated with deep breathing and meditation while stretching, “my personal version of yoga”. : )
I hope these ideas help. Shalom
Middle age stinks!
Jo, yes, your ideas are fantastic. I am just fighting with my body most of the time, and since fall has arrived, the nip in the air touches my bones and nerves to the point that they ache all of the time. I guess, like you and all hubbers, I am seeking "THE HUB," the ONE hub that all of my followers will love and even the non-followers on Hubs will like. Thanks again for your concern.
I am one of your followers. We should chat. No hurry.
paradigmsearch: I hear that. And I will be GLAD to chat with you. Just let me know. Right now. Oct. 5, at 10:13 a.m., cdst, I am going to my hometown and pay some bills. Then this afternoon be at a chiropractor's office to rid my lower back of this merciless pain. Pray for me. Thanks.
WOW! What if 100,000 hubbers did this? Just curious... What made all your hubs suddenly descend into the pit of mediocrity?
Hi Kenneth. Your apology is accepted, no question. But, it is not required at all! I have enjoyed your many interesting and witty hubs. I found some of them quite extraordinary. And some of them make me laugh out loud! You are very effective in bringing out humor, sadness and frustration. Your writing is such that I know when seeing a hub with your name on it, I will really enjoy it. Don't ever give up. Write your way through it.
Your fan and hubber friend, Marilyn (Maralexa)
Marilyn, thank you, dear friend, for your encouraging words. I needed them right now. I am going to a local chiropractor this afternoon and get rid of this stabbing pain in my lower back. I think that with my fibromyalgia and neurothpy already attacking me that back trouble would be a cake walk. NOT. Its tough. Keep me in your thoughts.
YOUR fan and Friend, KENNETH
Hi Kenneth, no need to apologize. As writers, we are pressured to work around personal life and other obligations that keep us from doing our best at times. I have at times posted hubs, although striving to do the best, feel they were not up to my high personal standards. I am sure that you can relate to this. I have not noticed anything out of place in your corner of the world, Kenneth. Just keep writing, stay focused and continue on.
Has anyone told you that you’re not Top Notch Quality in the past few weeks? I have never told you so as your follower. In fact this hub, “Easy Ways to Deal With "Bad Situations" was superb. You do not have to apologize till you get a feedback from followers of not being top Notch quality.
Kenneth no matter what no apologies needed ever. I have enjoyed your hubs really. If you seem to think something is as it shouldn't be think about what is missing. That missing link may be just something that is bothering you and you can't quite put your finger on it. Anyway you are doing just fine. I always worry myself when it's time to push that publish button but I figure that I have put my all in a certain hub if it falls short of expectations I'll just keep on trying. It's the most any of us can do. Hugs from this side of the world.
This is completely in the wrong forum.
Messages to followers are best placed on your feed, not on a forum, and especially not an an official Hubpages help forum.
Most hubbers do not use the forums.
Yes, it's a personal message to followers, not an official announcement of any sort. I will request it's moved to another forum topic.
No pressure KA take your time and work at your own pace. I don't seek, expect nor strive for perfection in myself or others. No need to apologize. Hope you feel better soon.

I am still new to Hubpages and have been enjoying a rather successful start. Thank you to those who have voted my articles up and those few of you who have begun to follow me. But I have noticed one thing of late and maybe it is the way it goes but I think it is disrespectful. I have commented on a...

On New Year's Day I acquired my 500th follower. In addition to this, I hope to reach another milestone within the next two weeks - the 500,000th visit to my hubs in 4 years. As far as page visits is concerned my goal now is to double this and reach a million views in the next 2 years. But although...

I am thinking of giving myself a challenge that in the next 365 days starting from today I will in average write 365 hubs. I am not quite sure yet if my mission is an impossible one or whether I will fall behind or stop writing in between. I am a very new hubber and reading everyday a lot on the...

I was wondering if anyone had any advice on writing better articles. I like my articles but want to make them better.
