Why I Hate Eric Graudins
This was the title of a webpage that stared back at me from Google when I searched for my name.
And it was on HubPages!
So I went and had a look, and cracked up.
A new hubber named NiteRiter had written about the stuff in my profile.
I had a look at a couple of his other hubs, and thought that they were great - even though he is a Canadian.
I even became his fan (he only has 6 - poor bugger)
So check out his hubs, and become a fan of this guy before he becomes famous.
And I don't think he's posted in the forums yet either.
I reckon he could be potentially another Shadesbreath, or Spryte, or Pearldiver, or Christoph Rielly, or someone pretty good like that.
Easy come... easy go...
I just searched for "Eric Graudins" on Google and NiteRiter's hub was not in the first 5 pages... maybe this was the initial "fresh content" boost and it is now in the infamous (and debatable) "sandbox"...
We shall see if it returns to its previous high rankings.
Wow Eric ... fame! Congratz! When I type my name itno google all that comes back is crap that I've written
You deserve to be flaged for Overly Promotional Content and having two seperate points of view within your post pic!
Cute. Real cute. that's the umpteenth cheap shot you've taken about my unfortunate condition.
But just to show that there are no grudges, I've added your name to the examples of great hubbers in my original post - even though you're so stupid that you didn't use the "invisible text copy" option at Hubpages, and therefore made it possible for the content of your hubs be easily stolen.
Oh I Fall at Your Feet Eric!!! (All 4 of them!)
That's only because I'm wearing a wooly jumper.
And I fear that with the 4 feet, your bad eyesight has got me confused with something else.
Oosshit Sorry... I was milking a Bumbletown cow at the time of posting... quite right, quite right
well, he doesn't sound Canadian. More like an aussie. and alter ego is written all over. Besides his writing is not as great as you say. Just average.
Well, Who do you reckon it is then?
If it is an alter ego, they've gone to a whole lot of trouble
hey read the hub. That hub for you rocks Eric. It caused me to become his fan (guess I should blame you?)
You are the master of self promotion Eric G, now that is indeed an Art
Nah - just giving a helping hand to a new hubber who writes FAR better than I do.
And you're far better at the Art of self promotion than I
health tip i so like the picture of you...... how the hell are you my friend
Doing really good my friend, really at last sorting my act out and am actually enjoying being myself. Hope all is well with yourself !
i fell at work and injured my back, have a week off work, which i am enjoying as i have been working round the clock, and getting too tired. My back will heal in time, i must look at some of your hubs....
Well enjoy your week off and put your feet up as the week just flies by as you know. Feeling tired myself with the dark mornings and dark nights creeping back, either that or I am getting old, I will blame the dark nights lol. Anyways have a good week off and look after that back !
Great little hub Eric. And all about YOU. And please put the cloth down chicken, you shine enough already
I put him straight about your greatness. He may hate you a little less now.
I became his fan too, Eric. He is very entertaining! For a very brief moment, I was concerned when I saw the subject line of this forum; thought someone was harassing you, not that you can't take care of yourself. LOL!
Glad you pointed me to that hub Eric - it gave me a good giggle this morning
How will you cope with the venom and hatred being pointed at you? You may need counselling.....
I saw that hub a few weeks ago, Eric. I just didn't tell you because I figured you really didn't need the ego boost. You might need a third head to carry around that much ego! lol
G'day BT. Thanks for the consideration mate!
Actually, now that I've had another look at Niteriter's picture, it looks a bit like Mark Knowles
But Nah. He wouldn't have the brains or the patience to pull off a stunt like this. (or the skill to write several hubs of that quality)
Yup. He looks kind of like Mark, but with less frongalous facial growth. I don't know Mark well enough to throw jabs like the ones you throw, but now that you've thrown one, we'll have to watch your score. If it tanks into single digits, then we know it really is Mark! I hear he has that kind of power around here.
I wouldn't like to be in your shoes - (it's actually frongelous facial growth, and he hates to have it spelled incorrectly).
See http://markpknowles.com/ode-to-mark-p-k … al-growth/
Anyway, he's bound to be along soon, because I believe he's got a Goggle alert set for that term.
And he doesn't have that sort of power. He's not the Messiah. Just a naughty little boy! (I can say that , because I found out the other day that he's younger than I am. You'd never guess looking at his photo though
Dammit - maybe he does have that sort of power. My score has been reduced to 30.
Sorry Mark - I take it all back.
Let that be a lesson to you Graudins. My people swung into action the moment the google alert for "frongelous facial growth" - which I own - hit.
Aand this is his latest fan. LOL According to gamergirl? priceless

How an intelligent hubber like you can say his hubs are great ? Really ? am I missing something ? I think they're average, and i'm being kind
all this makes me suspicious. Sorry!
Oh well, I read a couple of them, and thought that they were really good.
Maybe my internal metering system has been skewed from viewing so many really crappy hubs that have become the norm here.
Anyway, you don't have to agree with my assessment
Thanks for making those very kind (and wise) comments about my writing, Eric. Hey, I'm gonna give you a little support here, seeing as how you've been so nice to me and all.
Isn't it a universally accepted truth that the girls are always right? Okay well, I did a survey of all the girls (who would talk to me) and they all said they loved you more than they loved tantrum. That's 100%, buddy! And they all insited on telling me that they thought you were handsome and wise and that they take everything you say as gospel truth. Oh yeah, and they all want to be your fans for ever and ever until the end of time.
There, take THAT, tantrum! If you don't start being nicer to me I'm gonna sit here and pound out a scathingly "average" Hub about you!
like your avatar, i would like to introduce my daughter Carla she is the other head............
Very, very clever promotion by both of you!
I've got to learn something from this little tale, but for now I'm off to google "Eric Graudins" myself (and see what possibilities exist).
Damn, great promotion for you! I wish I was so loved
Must now think of creative ways to be hated or loved......
Poetlorraine, I know you secretly still love Eric; you're just trying to make tantrum feel better.
CarpetDiem, you looked in the wrong search engine. Go to www.giggle.tas and type "graudins+niteriter" into the the search engine that comes up there. You can type the same search into Google if you like, just for laughs. You're on there.
Jane@CM, I don't know that much about being loved but I can tell ya for sure, being hated takes no creativity at all.
As for you tantrum, I'll see your "can't care less" and raise you a "don't give a damn." Besides, you have ugly legs.

I took a hiatus for awhile from Hub Pages! However, in the past week or so, I have added new hubs participated in forums, asked a question or two, participated with the Hub Hopper, have read some Hubs, yet my Hubber Score is lower than it was when I was doing nothing. I don't get it!

Do you think Hubpages should take a harder stance to poorly written hubs?I hop hubs when I can, and find so many that are of poor quality. They have little to no content, or just one long text block. Don't get me started about the spelling or grammar.Should HP take more of a harder...

This was a nice experiment, but I've ultimately concluded that this site blows. The two competing interests are making money and writing quality articles. Mind you, I've written a handful of stellar hubs, yet I haven't a penny to show for it. Sure, I have about 100 or so impressions on AdSense, but...

What do you do when you read a hub that is purely promotional?The hub itself may be well-written and enjoyable, but clearly it is all about promoting a company, product, or service. Do you flag it? Do you ignor it? Do you rate it?

Did HubPages provide an explanation regarding why you can no longer easily share a Hub on Twitter using a button on the Hub? Why did they replace it with Flipboard?
