Are you shocked by the news that Simone H. Smith is leaving the Hub Pages at the end of this month?
This is Simone's message from her FaceBook page late yesterday - It's official: I am leaving HubPages at the end of this month to launch a company called Gigaverse with Malcolm Collins.
Hubbers, I'll miss you! It has been both a pleasure and a privilege to work with you. You have truly inspired me, and I hope to have the opportunity to help you reach your online career goals through Gigaverse. "We will all truly miss Simone".
Yes, I am. I don't know what we will do without her as she has been an inspiration to so many of us here. I especially appreciated her rapid responses to our questions and problems, and I hope whoever takes over her job will be as good as she has been. I just HATE that she is leaving, but I do wish her all the best.
I am awful sad about Simone leaving. She was our mentor in the Apprenticeship Program and she was always very helpful and encouraging. HubPages is losing a valuable resource and I hope there is someone capable of stepping into her shoes. She will be missed.
Well, no. I only saw her name on occasion and had no interaction with her. I hope she has great success though in her new venture.
Never interacted with Simone, I read a bunch of her comments to people. It was not just the good information but there is a way about people that really like to help people, and she has it. Her success is already guaranteed for it is in her.
Yes this was devastating news to hear about the Hub Pages. I'm not exactly sure how the loss of our Simone will play out on the Hub Pages, but I'm sure it won't help a bit. Simone will surely be miss a lot!

If You Were Granted One Wish In Relation To Hub Pages, What Would You Ask For?I think for me it would be to be able to write high quality, popular hubs in short a time as possible or for some mega publisher to discover my work and like it!! One can always dream!! Have a happy New Year!

This thread is the last before leaving the Hub Pages, I meet many lovely, intelligent, and interesting people. Yet had my fill and feeling a little off balance from all the downing of souls of other persons online. When one stands for middle ground, that middle road can get you run over by...
