I always have visited the forums since becoming a member some five years ago. I have read the forums daily for more than six months this year both topical and HP orientated. I just would like to share even though at times there is controversy, I have learned a lot. Too much probably said with a smile while not enough too . . . perhaps one can never stop learning. Some special mentions are . . .
Those who have taken the time with those who have posted a Hub in distress or wishing an assessment. Those posts have taught me a lot. It has also allowed me to look upon my present Hubs for editing.
Those who share their blogging experiences with both lack and success. At times it is a wiser investment to gain those perspectives leading toward creating one. One that gains success more swiftly. I have hope of that journey of adventures sometime in the future . . . how far I dun'no.
Those who point out and discuss the nature of HP with the history of changes and those results. One may ponder how to develop a dynamic strategy with organization and ease of managing one's profile and articles especially with maintaining a featured status.
The timely (In my view) announcements by HP of change as it occurs. And, those who contribute with constructive criticism and speculations of success. Especially those who have much more knowledge and experience and the skill sets needed to ride out the change both positive and negative.
Enough said . . . thank you
I found your post rather pointed, well-written, and educational. And I agree with you on your points of reading, posting on HP forums. Just remember and old saying that just popped into my wandering mind: "a tool, no matter how sharp, is only as good as its master."
That is a nice one to end on.
And with a it is always double edges even if as a saber with a dull edge. The forums itself or themselves is an open door(s) leading first to a hall then a room or choice of rooms. Each with a new door.
tsmog and paradigsearch, you are both very talented writers as well as being fine souls. I can tell this by the tone of your hubs. And I am not being a clown, but very serious. Your comments made me feel good and that I had not embarrassed myself with my comment.
Happy New Year, you two, and ALL on HP!
You are a situation. And that is not a compliment.
paradigsearch . . . "I" am a situation? I'm sorry.
Why retract if it is not meant in a harmful way? I am not offended. Just a bit confused. I appreciate your candor.
Thank you. Now if I can only get off my duff and start writing again Thanks for the encouragement!!
I have always been proud to share my brilliant insights here.
Should have made that a meme.
