Best of luck to you in your new ventures. So sad to see you go. I'll miss your bubbly full of entusiasm ways.
It is certainly a loss. We lost Ryan, Jason and now Simone, but we lost them to good endeavors. Here's hoping to gain another leader with charisma, charm, and uncanny ability.
Zsuzsy Bee - I still think of you as the Empress of North America and the delightful Judge Bee. How are the duckies and your son's grocery? It's awfully nice to see you online.
Hiya Patty how are you? My coke bottle bottoms (disguised as glasses) are finally back. We (my eyes and I) were given the okay to be moderately active on the 'puter again so naturally Hubpages was my first stop... My duckies and chicken are doing well. They helped me through the longest 15 months of my life, I can't imagine what I would have done without my barn babies. My son's store is doing really great. Thank you for asking. Everything okie-dokie with you?
Can't believe we're going to be losing Simone too. Gotta go and check out what new thing she's planning on getting off the ground.
talk to you later
Simone's business looks like a large endeavor that is going to help many business start ups and the world of online business overall. And, Simone is very entertaining. I signed up for information and such; one never knows what opportunity may lie in wait (in a positve way).
I'm fine and glad your flocks and son's grocery are as well.
Zsuzsy Bee, I second Patty inglish, MS' delight to see you again. Thank you so much for the kind words and wishes!!
Good luck Simone, and God Bless! I will miss you very much! I'm so glad I had the opportunity to participate on the Welcome Waggon, that was a privilege! See you soon!
Didn't know you were leaving. Gee - it's not going to be the same without you. You've done so much for all of us here at hubpages - always helpful with your answers to our many questions. Wishing you all the best and never forgetting you!
Very excited for you in your new venture, Simone.
Congratulations on following your dream.
You and your trademark bow will be greatly missed here at HP.
Good luck in whatever you are pursuing now. You were a great mentor.
She was the only staff member that I've interacted with apart from Ruddie, gonna miss you here on the forums and definitely the short and fun blog posts too Good luck on your new venture and whatever you pursue henceforth.
Thank you , Simone for all the help you have given to us.
Good luck and best wishes for the future! You were a great part of HubPages!
(First, Simone, forgive the bad artwork. As they say, it's the thought that's supposed count. Somehow, a few words don't seem enough when, I think, just about how anyone on this site has seen the kind of effort and graciousness and "sunny-ness" you've put into this community.) (Of course, I know that with the exception of the fine stick art of Mark Ewbie, a home-made picture is pretty juvenile; but - my goodness - I can only imagine what you (and others at HP) have been dealing with over the last couple of years.) I could have found something like a clip-art glass of champagne or clip-art cake or clip-art shamrocks (or something like that), but that goes back to that "thought-that-counts" thing.
That thought I just mentioned is, "Wishing you the sunniest of success and brightest of futures." (The thing with "See-You-Later's" is that they're best sunny and sparkly - because, after all, that's what deciding to go after our dreams is supposed to be too. Everything else aside (and I know you don't need me to say what so many others have said in other ways), the efforts and graciousness you've put in here have far from gone unnoticed or unappreciated.
OH MY GAWD SPARKLES!! Lisa HW, I am flipping out over this portrait. I LOVES IT MUCHLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!101010100001100
Thank you so much for the kind wishes and compliment!! I am truly honored.
Good luck Simone! I wish you the best of everything that you are going to do. Thanks for the great help you have given to us. We will be missing you! God bless you;-)
Simone - I wish for you the best of success; I hope you exceed even your own dreams, because everyone here knows you are capable of that, and more. Thanks for being such a friendly, funny and level-headed Camp Counselor to all of us. You've always been there (even at 6am Central Time, on the Forum).
I've already signed up for Gigaverse - can't wait to see where you and your partner take it. I'm convinced all of us who have been fortunate enough to be part of the Simone Era on HubPages will brag to others in the future that "We knew her back then!"
BTW - I'm saving a seat of honor for you at Whole Foods in Austin. Don't forget to be here for every single SXSW to come!
Good luck with your new plans, Simone! Thanks for all the help you've given us! Enjoy your Gigaverse adventure!
Thank you so much, everyone!
Your words of praise and encouragement have really moved me.
More so have I been inspired to take this leap because of the own leap you have taken as online content creators and entrepreneurs- it's really what inspired Gigaverse, the business I am leaving to start.
I can't even begin to express how much I will miss working with you, but I'll definitely be seeing you around! The internet is vast, but surprisingly intimate. I look forward to keeping in touch!
Hubpages wouldn't be the same without you Simone. I love how you always pop in to offer your advice here and there.
I'll sure miss those hats/bonnets, but I know you must follow you path. Wish you the best.
I wish you the very best of luck in what you do in the future Simone. You've done so much for this site, moreso than I can even begin to list, and I'm sure I'm not the only one to respect and appreciate all you've done. You'll be missed.
I miss you already, Simone.
Good luck, good health, God bless you
That’s all my heart can say
Good luck, good health, God bless you
And guide you on your way
No matter where you wander
As long as we’re apart
Good luck, good health, God bless you and keep you
And keep "us hubbers" still in your heart
Good luck Simone
I really enjoyed meeting you in London and hope that this is the career break that you have been waiting for. Just remember to take care of yourself- all work and no play is not good!
Best wishes Julie
Good luck Simone, this seems like a great opportunity for you.
We will miss you, Simone! Something for you.
Congrats on the big move and best to you! You're destined for the stars.
I'm certain you're going to be missed at HP HQ.
Simone: It has been great working with you. You have always been on top of what is going on at HP. You have been the "ear" of Hubbers and you will be sorely missed. That being said, I wish you the best of luck in your new venture. It sounds like it will accentuate the skills that you have gained by working at HP and you will be able to affect the futures of even more online writers. Best Regards to your Future!--Deb
Good luck Simone!
Thank you for all of your kind words, encouragement and help in the Apprenticeship program. It's really been such a great experience and I've learned so much. Your critiques and advice have done wonders to my online writing.
I know Gigaverse is going to be awesome! Best of luck in everything you do.
I didn't know Simone was leaving!
Simone, I hope your business thrives! We'll miss you.
I'm sorry to see you go but happy for you and wish you the best of luck in your new endeavors. You will be sorely missed.
Wish you the best in your new endeavor! Thanks for all your help and encouragement.
Simone, I just plugged "gigaverse" into Google. Looks like Google is already giving you a hard time... Bing and Yahoo already have you as #1. Just what is Google's problem anyway...? Hopefully by July, Google will have gotten itself straightened out. For those who haven't already visited, here is Simone's new address: http://www.gigaverse.com/ .

I just read the newsletter and learned that Simone will be leaving us soon. It is a shock and I'd love to start begging but I admire the decision and wish her the very best with her own online endeavors.For me Simone has been one of the rocks of Hubpages and I know I for one will miss her kind...

I have a very bad luck in my life.... I do believe in the existence of luck but not in my life ....Unfortunately, I hope I'm the only one because I don't want others to experience the same things that I have been/am experiencing.

Yep, that's my 2010 HubPages goal - write 1,000 hubs in 365 days - with a minimum 800 words (probably more). While I keep all my other affiliate marketing websites spinning as well. I do truly believe in the money-making power of HubPages, so I'm betting a significant proportion of my 2010 work...

I just wanted to say thank you all of you who have provided me support over the last year. After a full year of HubPages, I decided to migrate all of my content over to my own blog (and have completed the transition about a month ago).HubPages was a wonderful learning opportunity and a great...

I may just be a glutton for punishment, but I've enjoyed the four hubs I've made so far since joining last week and it's always good to set goals, so I may as well jump right in!
