    I want to thank all the Hubbers that make HubPages a pleasure.  Today was the seven year mark since the first Hub.  We have all come a long way since then.  I'm really grateful for the world class community we have here, for the people that come in the office and work hard every day, and how we have learned so much together.  Here is to the next 7!

      Congratulations! Is the very first hub still here? If so, I'd love it if you would share it. I wish I found the site much earlier.

      You're welcome Paul, and although only having been here a short time, I can see that it is the best site for publishing Hubs of all distinctions, and it is people like yourself, with their dedication, and labour, that make this a world class development.
      Yours Sincerely,
      Romeo's Quill

      Wonderful - - Congratulations to you and the Hub community!  I've just joined Hub Pages, and so far, I think it has been a great move!  Now, if I could only think about good quality hubs to further my own addition.

      Hey! Happy Birthday HubPages -- may we have many more as we get better each year!
      There have been struggles, writers have come and gone and we lost some very good writers -- yet we still carry on.
      Thank you, Paul, for HubPages and the opportunities in this great community.

    Congrats on all the achievements and hang time...  Wow, 7 years and still... there is a whole lot more to learn!  smile 
    Perhaps the HOTD should be the original posted way back then huh? 

    Well Done Pauls and All... smile

    Happy Hub Anniversay!   I'm sure it feels great, regardless of the ups and downs!  You provide a fantastic platform and have helped so many ordinary people in so many ways.  I'm glad I stumbled upon the Facebook ad and clicked to find out more!  Sept. will mark my 4 year anniversary.  smile

    This is the one site that I can say that I check daily.  It feels like home.
    Cheers~~ Rebekah

    Congratulations Paul. It's so good to be part of the HP family here. I have learned so much here and have made so many awesome friends. I have laughed, cried and learned all at the same time. HP is truly the best place to be for me - it is where I truly found my "writers voice". Many best wishes for many years to come and here's to the next 7 years (raises the champagne glass)

    And it was a great pleasure meeting all of you at HubCamp. So nice to put a face to the writers and staff!!

    Wow! Happy 7th Birthday to HP- a fantastic website that gives writers professional and amateur alike a voice. I only wish I'd discovered it 7 years ago rather than 18 months ago. But still, these past 18 months have been the best of my life and that's largely down to HP. Many thanks to Paul and the rest of the team. Congratulations!!
