My 5th anniversary with hp

    Just got the message from Admin that I have reached my 5th year anniversary with HP.  If not for the Google Panda change, I would have reached my 2 million page views as well.  Now the elusive 2 million is 39,000 away which will take another month.  I am not satisfied with my total hubs which stands at 206.  If not for the stringent "word count" control of Hp, I would have written much more. 

    You know, if your article has less than 1000 words, the chances are that it will not be featured. And I don't want my account to have any unfeatured hub.  All my hubs are featured.  I simply delete hubs that are not featured.  Articles with less than 1000 words may not necessarily mean substandard, but Hp insisted. 

    Be that as it may, I am very happy to be with Hp all these years.  A major part of my life revolves around Hp, as I am retired.

    CHEERS!

      congrats on your 5 years anniversary, i had been here 5.5 years already and i only delete those unpublished hubs, i have a lot of hubs less than 1000words but still featured, i guess it is the title and traffic

        I have a number of featured hubs with less than 1000 words.  They are the earlier hubs.  Lately, I found that whenever my hubs were less than 1000 words, they would be rejected until I increased them to more than 1000 words.   I shall try and test again.

    Happy Fifth HP Anniversary.  HP has been a big part of my online-writing life as well - not because I've been retired, but because I've kind of seen it (and some of the other online writing) as a wise investment in time that I might be glad I made when/if I ever do go into "retirement mode". In the meantime (and besides that) , it's never a bad idea for a person/writer  to keep up with "Internet doings".

      Hi Emily,
      It's both  fun and challenging.  Fun because I can see my effort being read 24/7 globally, and pocket money for me too.  Challenging because I need to find topics to write, and to ensure I write interesting hubs that can be featured.
      Thanks for your encouragement..

        Congratulations, five years is a fantastic achievement.  Keeping that number of hubs up to-date is no mean feat.  It can be a challenge to keep even a small number of hubs fresh and up to-date all the time. May you go from strength to strength.

    Cheers to you, Good Guy. Congratulations on your 5th Anniversary with HP. You've done quite well as you have reached this very special milestone. And that approaching 2 million views (wow!) will be here in no time. I like how you have maintained your focus and good attitude on a journey that is often frustrating as you mentioned. You are a great hubber role model.

      Hi Janis,
      Very nice to hear from you again.  It's Hubbers like you that make writing in Hp fun and educational.  Thanks again Janis.  You have a nice day.
