    Where have all the hubbers gone?

    Last year had a sign saying 50 million viewers, this year it was 38 million and now I can’t find the plug. I am hardly getting any new hubs in my feed. After a steady climb in total views, they have now plummeted to almost half and my new hubs no longer get as many comments. Does anybody know what is going on? Has anybody else noticed something similar?  Just curious.

    I don't really know, and I'm somewhat new here, but I would guess that people are creating their own blogs or quit because of the tighter control of affiliate sites. Thus earning less money.

      And I do enjoy your hubs when I see them pop up.

      I wish I had time to do more...unfortunately life, the universe and a recent PC crash have kept me from kicking off my new Hub year in the grand style that I'd planned on... HP needs to figure out a way for me to compose a Hub via Smartphone... Haha

    Still here also. I've been busy writing a couple of science fiction ebooks with my #2 Son (Foothold on Terra-Bravo and Crisis on Terra-Bravo available on Amazon.com, b&n.com, Smashword.com and several other online ebookstores), so I haven't written many Hubs lately. I've posted comments in quite a few Hubs though.

    I am also still here. My views are steady and I am still writing and publishing hubs. I haven't really detected a drop in activity here at HubPages except over the Christmas period.
