    Well as some of you know by now I have started a blog where I am featuring peoples Hubs.

    Its pretty simple, I find blogs I like, give it a short review and then post it on the blog.

    Well as many of you also know I have admitted to having other accounts on here as well.  Well I have got at least 6 emails accusing me of posting my alter egos hubs on this blog.

    Well I know the blog is very young yet and gets no traffic yet.

    I do assure everyone I will never post any of my alter ego accounts hubs.

    I am planning on buying a domain name quite shortly for the blog and maintaining it by writing articles to drive outside traffic to it.

    Those who have been on the blog so far know they are not me.

    Anyways I wont take these accusations to seriously but for those who care I will not be posting hubs from my other accounts and just from other hubbers.

    Anyways I wont promote the link here but if you want to see the early blog you can find the link on my profile page.

      Dale, The way I see it, it doesn't much matter what you do. There are going to be some people out there that are going to say negative things. Just look what they did to the One that could walk on water..I say what you are doing is a great idea and you shouldn't let the unhappy few bother you.

      Good Luck and keep being you.

      People have accused me of building the blog to only promote my alter ego hubs.  That is very far from the truth.

      Each post on the blog so far is from a real hubber and none are mine from any of my other accounts.

    I checked it out, and I think it looks great.  Don't worry what people say.  It's your blog, and your business.  As long as you are crediting the hubbers, I don't see the problem.  Some people will complain about anything.

      Ah what the hell you may as well put it all on me tonight and then tommorow we will blame some one else  lol.

      Just cant figure out some people.  The thing is a couple of them have pretty good hubs that will not get featured because they will probably knock me for that as well.

      OH well

        If you've got people harassing you about something like that, you must be doing something right.  There are always going to be small people who try to tear those down who are better than them.  I'd not pay them any mind at all.

          I have loved Hubpages since the minute I started here.  I work hard to make money as an affiliate who thinks outside the box.

          I have never spammed a single link here but still there are people who think oh sure he is just tricking someone.

          Ah whatever and thank you for your support

    If you have alter egos here on HP who are writing hubs and you choose to include those on YOUR blog, why is that a problem? It only makes sense to me.
    As stated above, you own the blog and are 100% entitled to post whatever you want on it.
    Don't let the turkeys get you down!!

        I agree as well.  When it comes down to it, even if someone did that all it would be would amount to using a variety of screen names instead of just one.   I know what you mean about being accused of something (even something that isn't a big deal) wrongly, though.

        I have blogs, and I've often been uncomfortable that they don't look like "everyone else's" blog.  (I don't get to them as often as I should, they have "weird" stuff on them, and they're pretty much still in "Phase 1", the way a lot of my Hubs are.  I just had to come around to thinking, "They're mine.  They are what they are.  There's a whole lot worse garbage online than my stuff."   lol

    Hi Dale, I think you should call a board meeting of all the alter egos you represent on hubpages and sit down and have a vote. All you got to do is ask whose against say "Ay".Silent room means do what you want do as the CEO of Dale Mazurek Incorporated.

    I understand what youre saying about plagiarism, but the intent is for the greater good of the hubbber community to drive traffic here.So I'm all for your project.If you dont someone will.You just got there first.

    Hahah i dont believe people actually saying that about you. Well for a fact your blog is so dar good at the starting level cannot imagine the success it will hit once it reaches heights. I guess they are all envious that they didnot think about the idea first. Look at the title it is ourhubpages if you were so egotistic and only for your personal agenda it would be myhubpages blogspot. lol. Dale always believe that people in this world are never happy seeing others doing well.

    So dont be offended just do what feels is good according to you. You are the boss it is your blog. Enough said else i would be banned for exceeding word count limit. lol.

    Also please keep in mind it is your blog, so you are welcome to post your alter ego hubs on it.  Who on earth is accusing you of doing that anyway?  I would say they have way too much time on their hands if they care what you are doing with your blog.  Personally I have usually only blogged about hubbers I feel pretty close too, and they are the type of people who do not worry about things like that.  Do not worry Dale, but do not apologize to those rude ones either.

      There, now you can get back to your work, knowing you have paid the naysayers their proper adieu.

      Oh, and when you get a chance ... any possibility you can perform  pet psychiatry on my dog? He's still afraid of the basement, and now I think it might be because of Crazdwriter

      Sorry about blaming you earlier and all, but she did have an alibi - husband on leave and all ... but then I got to thinking ... she has been on her own for quite a few days, providing ample opportunity to spook my dog. hmmm....

      Thank you for the kind words and I truly am glad that people are seeing me for who I am.  Yes I am a marketer but I challenge anyone to show me in one single place where I have spammed, or tried to sell anything except in some of my hubs of course.  however even there I work hard to do it with real class.

      Once again thanks for the kind words from a very popular hubster

    Oh, and postscript--I made the Duchess O'Blunt's crockpot dish--the Hill Billy Casserole, and tho it isn't quite done yet, it sure smells good.

    So Dale, if you need something to smell good while you're dealing with the fortunately very few sorta pissy folk out there who will get into anyone's face about anything, fling together one of the Duchess's crockpot recipes and dine off the smell for about 7 hours.

      Thats the thing, my alter egos are really the ones that make the money and I do not associate them with myself.

      They too follow the rules and no matter who it is I still follow the same rules I have set out for myself and that is to be different than all the gurus out there that promise the world and only deliver your money to their bank accounts.
