HubPages is being noticed and that is great. I am sure that this is only the beginning. Some of my articles/photos etc have been pinned by the personal assistant (Cardinal Giuseppe) to the Pope and by Mark Phelps (famous Olympian) so it's no wonder that even celebrities are getting into the act. Way to go Peggy W !!!!!!
Neat-O. It's always nice to be noticed (and speaking as a red blooded American male, I certainly wouldn't mind being "noticed" by Jessica Alba. Haha!) A while ago, 80s rocker Don Dokken (or at least, someone **claiming** to be 80s rocker Don Dokken) left a comment on my Hub about his band, which was a nice ego boost.
Well President Obama pinned one of my hubs, and then the Queen of England flew me to her palace to read one of my hubs aloud to her family and several dignitaries. (I just felt the need to go Penelope on you all.)
I'm loving reading about people who have had their work pinned, reposted or commented on by celebs. Keep 'em coming!!
This week, my hub on "A New Study May Forever Change the Way We Train Our Dogs" was linked in famous dog trainer (think Animal Planet) Victoria Stilwell's blog. Since I'm a professional dog trainer, I found this to be really cool. I admire Stilwell's training methods, and was honored she found my hub interesting enough to link.
Congrats to those above who had "interesting" readers.
That's awesome to see a celeb pin a hub! That's an interesting hub she wrote. I've had 3 music related hubs tweeted and posted to their Facebook pages. I wondered once when I saw a lot of views coming in for my Kenny Vance hub (Doo wop fame. He formed Jay and the Americans.) He had found my hub and posted it to his page with a nice comment about the article. The Max Martin hub has also been read and shared by his copyright organization, STIM. I had to write to get permission to use a press released photo. She said they loved the article. Nick Gardner has tweeted and posted my hub interview with him on all of his social media accounts. He goes on tour this spring with Gavin DeGraw. I interviewed him before he signed with Interscope Records. We still keep in touch. I'm excited for his debut tour and album. He was discovered on Youtube by Jimmy Iovine. It's fun stuff. You never know who will find and read your hub.
