Top 3% of Hubbers? Really?

    "Hi goatfury,

    You have accomplished quite a feat; you have published 25 Featured Hubs! And guess what? You are in the top 3% of Hubbers who have achieved this milestone. Way to go!

    Thanks,
    HubPages"

      You've incorporated the talent of Ernest Hemingway with the fury of a goat.

      Make it to 50 Hubs, and you'll be in the top 1% = 585 Hubbers out of 58,597.

        Are there really less than 600 Hubbers with more than 50 hubs?  Any data to back this?

          You can see the number of published users (not necessarily those with featured Hubs) at the bottom of this page:
          http://hubpages.com/about/us

          When you publish your 50th Hub, you get the auto-response email which says you're in the top 1%.  All that means is that most people who start on this site don't do very much.

            I have way more than 100 hubs, all featured, and I never got a letter...boo hoo!

              Keep going, the letters get even stranger: this is what I got after 300 hubs:
              "Fun fact: In bowling, 300 is a perfect score - 300 published Hubs are pretty perfect too!"
              I can only imagine the kind of letters Patty Inglish got when she published her 2000th hub.

                2000 is an excellent landmark.  I'd like to make it there within a few years.  I find that one hub every day or two is working out great, so maybe 20 hubs a month, or about 250 a year, give or take.  I guess that's 7 or 8 years to 2000 hubs, but may as well hunker down for the long haul!  It's all about consistency.

      Doesn't this mean that you are in the top 3% of Hubbers who have published a minimum of 25 hubs, rather than overall? So not in the top 3% who have published 50 or 100 or 1000 hubs? Do you see what I mean?

      Even so, well done!

      I'm sure there are lots of Hubbers who have only signed up. Others with 1000s of poor quality hubs, others with hundreds of top-notch hubs, others with...ah, if only we knew!

      On the other hand, I know nothing as I have only managed 21.

      22nd to be published soon. Maybe. Watch this space but... er, don't hold ya breath!   smile

                  If you had him circa 73, you would have been... what? 10?
                  If you had him now... you'd have to share him with his grand kids... he's 64.
                  I think you are star-crossed... unless you really just needed a drummer?

                    I was not yet 10 in 1973.

                    I certainly don't need a drummer as much as I need Tom Hardy.

              Baby goats are simply adorable, possibly even hubworthy.

                I'm pretty sure I read about a miniature goat dairy farm, maybe in Washington state somewhere?

                    Neat...I'd read that! I was just in Virginia, but I saw no goats.  I did bring home a car, though, and saw deer, coyote, antelope, bison, domestic sheep---maybe some domestic goats in South Dakota?  But I haven't written those hubs yet.  And we got stopped for a cattle drive when we got back to Montana.  I did do a starter hub before hand...is it spam to post it?  I like little winding chains of connections/coincidences like this, so I'm doing it (please tell me if it's tacky)

                    http://rockymountainmom.hubpages.com/hu … Road-Ahead

                    I'm a sucker for little coincidences, so I like it that being in the top 3% led to goats which led to Virginia.  I'm a bit loopy, though, from back to school colds brought home by my kids.  I think climbing baby goats pushed me over the edge.

    Congratulations goatfury, I checked out some of your hubs, very fascinating topics you're writing about, I'm quite envious.  I just published my 27th hub, and wasn't aware that I was in the top 3%.  it's motivating, as juvenile as that sounds.

    Thanks for breaking it down for us newbies WF, 50 hubs before the year is out!

      goatfuryposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      I know what you mean.  It's goofy, but if it motivates you, it's totally worth paying attention to!  I also plan to have 50 Hubs before the year is out (not counting the Squidoo lenses transferring to another account).

    The good thing about Hubpages is , the older your hubs become to more passive views those are going to receive . So, just keep up the good work wink
