Do you think I am doing well?
Okay, I have been here for seven weeks now and am loving this site. So far I have 32 hubs (and am writing another right now) I have 68 followers and 8 accolades (including a HubNugget!) So do you think I am off to a good start? Is there much chance of me possibly, one day in the future, being one of those great hubbers with thousands of followers? If so how long could this be? I have also just applied for the Apprentice Program, I hope I get in... Anyone who is in it, could you give me your experience so far. Thanks guys!
I don't know anything about the apprentice program? But, I can tell you you are off to a great start. I was about where you are when I had been here a month. The most exciting thing next is getting "PAID." And I will have accomplished that this month. If things do level out and you wonder what's going, Don't worry., That's normal. Keep up the Great work!!
Thanks, I can't wait for the day when I finally start making money. Although I try to make it a low priority so that I am not constantly checking my earnings everyday, and then when I finally get a payout it will be a wonderful surprise!
Yes! You can be the Next Legend on Hubpages! Just keep Hubbing, Commenting and Enjoying! That's it! Would be happy if you share your Traffic Report!
I think you're doing great - obviously, since I'm one of your followers. I've been thinking of applying for the Apprentice Program as well. Good luck - hope you get accepted.
I think you are doing wonderfully. The real question is how well do YOU think you're doing? If you see room for improvement somewhere, do it. If you're finding something that works, keep doing it.
I'm in the Apprenticeship program, but my group just started yesterday, so I couldn't give you much of anything about it other than some of the people in my group are all kinds of awesome! I will tell you that I applied in July and got wait listed, so it may take some time for them to get back to you and to get into a group. Don't take a lack of communication from them as a bad thing, and good luck!
You obviously have a great perspective and a love of writing and together they both gel to have earned you some super accolades. The one word to describe your accomplishments to date...marvelous.
Firstly - followers having nothing to do with success or money.
And sounds like you're right on the average part of the bellcurve. The key is to keep at it, and keep learning.
If you are loving what you are doing, finding yourself a part of a community that supports creative effort, in my opinion you are rocking on down the highway. You sound like you have been bitten by the HubPages Bug.
HubPages is one of the best things that happened in my life.
Keep doing what you have been. Do not let discourging or writer-blocky times disuade you. You appear to be doing all of the right things, and by being an active member of the HubPages community; as you are, you will continue to 'blossom'.
HubPages helps with recognizing milestones in Hubbers careers. Keep bringing the original material, being involved, market yourself on the world wide web by getting backlinks of your Hubs on sites like Twitter, RedGage, Pinterest etc.
Promote other's material as well as your own.
Good Luck, and Write On!
P.S. Truly I think you are the only one who can answer this question. )
I would say you're doing great! Though I haven't been active long, I signed up over a year ago and have only 18 published hubs and 21 followers. I also have applied for the apprenticeship program so can't help you there. Keep doing what you doing. You are already a great hubber in my opinion.

I logged in to Hubpages this morning to find that whereas previously, I had two unfeatured hubs that I have been intending to get around to editing or deleting, I now have 25 UNFEATURED for "lack of engagement".Whilst I appreciate that the older hubs may well need some work or in some...

I read a Yahoo article today about Hubpages Apprenticeship Program. Is it now open and if so How do I apply? I went to "my account" and clicked on Apprenticeship but got the same response "closed at this time".

I am really upset over the whole discussion about the Apprenticeship program. Now disgruntled hubbers want to have the badge removed form our profiles.When I became an "elite", when it was known as that, I was treated really badly by some petty hubbers. When I joined the AP program I fell...

I am a great fan of social networking and Web 2.0 but simply do not understand the hype behind Twitter. I read on Digg today Twitter might get its own TV Show, yes TV SHOW. Even Twitter creator Jack Dorsey thinks it is going a little over board. Can any Twitter fanboy/fangirl explain to me what...
