Why do blogs start off at the number fifty but then, shortly after they go down

    Why do blogs start off at the number fifty but then, shortly after they go down to 49?

    I was curious because I just posted a blog that after an hour went down to 49 from 50. They all seem to do that though not just mine.

    New hubs that are started but not published usually lose a point or two per day that they remain unpublished. If they are published but don't get any traffic the score might also go down. I'm not sure how voting works, but I would imagine hubs that are voted down would drop in score as well.

    Hey Mr. Happy, just to let you know HubPages are not blogs. If you are treating your hubs like that of blogs, then you are completely ruining your own experience with HubPages. Hub Pages are to be magazine size articles. Either selling something or providing information to readers. Yes, poetry is also included, but is also the exception too. Poems are the only thing that will not be flagged for substandard, unless absolutely ridiculously small poems. As for the scores changing, the hubscore will always fluctuate and it based on many different factors. The only thing you should know is to keep your authorscore/hubberscore above 75 and keep your hubs above 40.

    Mr. Cooper may be right because I had written the blog and left it as unpublished.

    I disagree with Cagsil on that Hubpages is not a site which contains blogs. It does that and more indeed because some people use it as a means for advertising.

    A blog is: "is a type of website or part of a website. Blogs are usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order. Blog can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.

    Most blogs are interactive, allowing visitors to leave comments and even message each other via widgets on the blogs and it is this interactivity that distinguishes them from other static websites.[2]

    Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject; others function as more personal online diaries." Wikipidia
