    Can you guess who the stalker is? He's probably jealous cuz my whiskers look better than his.

    It probably wouldn't be wise to actually state the name. big_smile

    Okay, 10 followers.  I stopped stalking & joined your fan base.

      Thanks. My "newbie" account is starting to look less and less lame. Meanwhile, my "first" new hub is over half completed. There is hope for me yet. big_smile

        Be sure to let us know here on the Forum when you've published your first hub. I know you can't link to it, but can you tell us?  I don't always see things on my feed, but I can 'share' once I know it's published.

          Hark! It is done! And it didn't even get QAPped on; that's quite an accomplishment these days. I hereby renounce my slackerdom.

          The bad news... I have not a clue as to my next hub topic. Oh, well...

            Hark back at you - I just visited, left a comment & voted and tried hard to share. The share button just sat there like, forever. I even got up, left the screen, got a snack and returned.  Still no action. 

            Sigh.I tried! 

            Meanwhile - I like the hub - hadn't thought of the trends in avatars, and it makes perfect sense!

    Oh, how do I get a stalker?  I'm sure they'll drive up my views.

    I think your new account is still a referral account.  Do you know for certain that it is not?

    1. paradigm search profile image59
      paradigm searchposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      HubPages Staff has publicly stated in another thread that this paradigm search account is unreferred. I really do wish HP would just get rid of the author referral program altogether, especially since they've repeatedly mentioned the possibility over the last 8 years. If they really do want to keep disbursing that extra money to us, why not simply change the overall split for everybody to 65:35 to compensate? That would certainly make for a lot of happy campers around here. big_smile

    Thanks. The share button didn't work for me either. Such is our lot in life. Meanwhile, desperately trying to come up with a new hub topic.

      Since you're on top of trends and online publishing, what about hubs about trends in web layout, user interface, usability, visual cues, or anything related to making our online presence more inviting? Those things change & would be interesting!
