I kinda think it is in a way. If you come here hoping to get instant results, ie instant money or instant traffic or whatever its kinda disappointing, those things don't just happen cause you are here. If you want success here you need to do things like, participate in the forums, post comments to others hubs which leads to reading other peoples hubs. The more you give to the community here the more you are likely to receive, in the form of fans er I mean followers, also in the form of traffic, tips for earning and anything else you might hope to get from hub pages.
Life is a bit like this, if you approach it from a selfish point of view and want to get a lot out of it without giving much in return life is pretty disappointing. If you engage with your community and try to both offer what you know and ask good relevant questions as well as just trying to help others out you are much more likely to receive loads from life and find it to be a pretty swell!
What do you guys think? Am I close or is this just the musings of a slightly deranged and exhausted mind?
HP is a microcosm of life as I wish it would be.
I work my butt off no matter what I happen to be doing. I've met many good folks here who are helpful and engaged with the site. In life in general, my hard work does not pay off like this.
Friendships, learning SO much, and a huge amount of participation here are making HP one of the best things I have done for myself.
((love to all)) we are all awesome.

What is the best way to get traffic on hubpages? Is it by the quality of your hubs or the frequency of your communication in the community? I've seen different articles that encouraged people to get noticed by being more social, claiming that that would increase interest and traffic; and then on...

Just kidding!I'm seeing dozens of threads from people stressing about losing traffic. Asking if this is the end of Hubpages. Asking if it's pointless writing here anymore. Asking if there is even a point to writing online.I saw my traffic drop by more than 50% in 2011 - when the original Panda...
