    Does this guy move you to do better?

    I am just saying that I tune into guy. I learn one/won hell of a lot from that guy. He keeps on giving like that bunny for EverReady. I do not know but writing is addictive. He is my drug of choice.

        He, as an individual is inspiring... he encourages a great many ppl by the words he leaves at the end of hubs as well as the ones he writes.

      And yet, with all the kudos, Billy does not make very much money here.  He certainly deserves a good income, but I read one of his articles awhile back that pointed to the fact that with over 400 articles he barely makes $1 a day.  That is horrible!

    Billybuc is without a doubt an inspiration to all.  No pretense, no BS, just the truth about writing.  His stories are interesting and his advice inspiring.  He has given out so much interesting and educational information he is defintely the sensei of HP.
    Can't imagine where I'd be without him!  (Good choice Eric.)

    He is all about the words.
    Very talented man with a very likeable writing persona;  coupled with a great  kick ass  can do attitude. He makes this a much better and more productive place.

    He is THE most consistently supportive hubber on HP, always taking the time to commnet on your hubs. Writing a hub a day, helping others on his writing site, and taking time to make the world a better place, you wonder how he finds the time to encourage us as he continues to read our hubs. Thanks for starting this positive thread, Eric. smile

      I agree with Janshares.  Billy is extremely supportive, talented, and never is too busy to answer everyone (either on his posts or visiting others to leave comments).  He never lets anything get in his way of his goal.  I admire that.  Kudos Eric!

      He is an example to all of us and a credit to HubPages  - I reckon we should vote for every one of his hubs for Editors Choice and give HubPages staff some reading to do.

    This man is a great inspiration for all writers.  I have often asked him:  how come you have more hours in your day than I do???   I don't know how the man does everything he does!!!

    He is and has always been a great inspiration to me and at times when I have read his hubs he's also been a great help in my writing I think it was an absolutely marvelous thing which Bill did with starting and continuing HOW I am glad to call him a friend
