Lillian Alling. She was an enigmatic Romanian or Russian or Estonian immigrant who may or may not have traveled by foot from New York to Russia via Bering Strait around 1926. I was considering writing this as a hub, but am not sure where to go with it substance-wise. The whole story is a mystery, and frankly a topic I enjoy more than enjoy writing about. I thought this could make an interesting hub for someone needing inspiration who is willing to tackle the thick fog that blankets her story. Share the hub here - cheers.
Why is this "sharing the love"? It sounds more like dodging the hard work to me. You are asking someone else to spend hours (weeks? months?) of their time researching into a topic which you admit is going to be an extremely difficult one to research.
If you're interested in a particular topic then why not continue with the research yourself and write the hub. It may not be an easy task, but you will learn a lot by doing it yourself.
Alright, Beth, cool your jets. I thought it would be an interesting topic to share. Could I not just as easily have "dodged the bullet" by ignoring this matter altogether? Thanks for the feedback, I'll make sure to avoid posting this kind of thing in the future.

I was just thinking, it might be cool to have a point/counterpoint feature in which on author might provide a counterpoint to a hub already written. If they were both good, perhaps they could somehow be featured in a juxtaposed format, so readers could objectively get both sides of an issue,...
