    Do you think that any of the hubs you have written are memorable?

    In other words, do you believe that once someone has read any of your hubs, does anyone remember any of your work?  We read so many hubs daily (for the most part), and do we even remember them after we move on to read another hub . . . so, I was just wondering if anyone believes that any of their hubs or even just one of your hubs is memorable once someone has read it . . . i.e., made an impact on someone's life or just stuck with them for some reason.  Thanks for answering.

    Hi Faith Reaper. Great question. Based on the wonderfully generous comments I get, I hope I have some that have made an impression. I hope that some of my better hubs define who I am as a writer and keep readers coming back.

    Ther are a few of your hubs off the top of my head that I can recall that made an impact on me. I can't remember titles but one was about the emotional impact of a traumatic childhood with pictures of your father. Another was about a poisonous flower. And another was about how you've survived cancer that stumped the doctors, glory be to God.

    You see there, we do create memorable hubs.

      Hi janshares, wow, thanks so much for taking the time to answer and for leaving a really great answer here!  I really appreciate that you mementioned that you had actually remembered some of my hubs too, that means a lot as a writer no doubt.

    Wow! I sure would like to think so...Maybe some of the essays about my life ..however there are so many hubs and many fine ones.  Good thought though!

      Hi Carol,  thanks for answering.  Yes, I think that when we write from our personal experiences, people tend to remember those writings, and plus it is the real deal!

    I think my childhood ones are (whistle blow) and they are my favorites, based on what really happened to me. Although friends followed them all they came to an end and I don't really know how to give them new birth without writing more and as much as I would love to, there seems to be no time. So....lol...but to answer impact, maybe small; but many did say they really loved reading them and it reminded them of their childhood and they want to read more...so I think that is a good thing. A teacher once said she wanted her students to read them all but at that time I meant to remove them and told her so...but now, how I would love to have school children read them. sad
    My mom was such a story teller and I her biggest fan and the last thing I ever dreamed to do was write, (until about 3 years ago) so maybe the biggest impact really is on me!

      Hi Jackie, oh, I just love your "whistle blow" hubs, as they are your personal stories, and I think that seems to be the consensus here.  Thanks for sharing about your mother, teacher and yourself, which I will remember!  How interesting, wow!

    That, Dear Faith, is certianly a tough question.  I had to go back and look at my hubs before answering.  I have some really good hubs but I don't think any of them are truly memorable.  I'm still trying to find that one!

      Thanks Mary (Till), I know, I had to really think on this one myself!  You have written countless great hubs.  One that really sticks with me, and is telling, is "How to Cope With The In-Laws" LOL and "New Babies- A Beginners Manual" and more.

      Thank YOU Faith Reaper...definitely a question that makes you think about your hubs!

      Thanks Mary (Till), and I wanted to add your Academy series too, as they are really great, but I ran out of room to further comment in my initial comment.

    That is a great question in that it has to make one step back and examine what they have produced. It's akin to knowing that you read a certain novel, but a few years later are unable to remember what it was about! Obviously it was not a memorable book.
    I would like to think that some of my pieces would stand out in the minds of my readers...there are a few that I can think of off the top of my head. The interesting thing to do would be to ask someone who you know has read your work to relay to you what they remember!
    My most popular hub in terms of traffic is actually a piece I did about, 'a memorable event' and the fact that the event has been largely forgotten: The New London Texas School Explosion.

      Hi wayne, thanks so much for answering!  Yes, you have made some valid points here to consider.  Since I just started reading you, your latest, "hot buttered buns" has left a lasting impression on my mind!  LOL Very cleverly written and funny.
