What are your "Milestones" on Hubpages?
I personally, want to reach 25 featured hubs. Do accolades motivate you?
No. Accolades mean nothing really. Consider them being no more than giving a kindergartner a gold sticker for finishing a project.
I totally agree! Not necessary. I taught kindergarten, so I appreciate simple , truthful sensibilities of five-year-olds. I wrote about creating more accolades.... even while making a bit of fun. Since we can hide them, it's not a big deal.
A person with a large number of Hubs might lead you to a writer that you find interesting.
Persons with other accolades may have special interests.
Accolades are one way of measuring the quality of the work. They can serve a purpose.
No, those accolades don't help me at all. It's nice to see the achievements you've created but my motivation is beyond that- I would like to reach at least 50 good hubs by the end of next year.
I like seeing the accolades. It reminds me of how far I have come in Hubpages.
I'm not sure if the accolades actually inspire me but I still like having them.
I recently set up my milestone challenge for myself. On December 5, 2014, I started a 30 hubs in 30 days challenge for myself. Tomorrow I will be half way there, yay! however, I wish that Hubpages would have challenges that they sponsor where the community could get a bit more involved. when I started my challenge I looked up challenges in help because I thought they were sort of like contest but then I realize that each of us has to create our own challenge. So that's what I did.
I once worked in a place where there was a debate over the titles the personnel should have, with the guy assigning the titles saying they did not mean anything. I said,lets not have titles. He became vice president andI was Director of Public affairs Titles denote responsibility and authority.
Accolades denote achievement and contributions. I have 100 featured Hubs, but have not written any recently and I have been selected 100 times for the best answer to a question. A few times I was the only one to answer.
The accolades show your involvement in Hub Pages and shows that you are a participant and not one of those who never contribute a new idea, but love to argue with you
I was also thinking earlier that accolades don't matter. But actually directly or indirectly I found accolades influencing me in a positive way to do something better in HP.
I could reach 100 featured Hubs (and more) only because of accolades being present there.
I am now looking for one more milestone to cross in accolades. If and when I cross it, I will come and post it here!
I crossed that milestone y'day. It is answering 1000 questions. I hope with this, I can start relaxing and spend far less time in HP hereafter!
and you, my friend, have well deserved it...you have insight that is well worth taking to heart...thanks!
thanks so much for all of your responses...after reading, I have discovered that, in fact, accolades do mean something...to me...I have purposefully not published #25....(because I have taken the advice of many)...I want #25 to be correct...good content, well researched, true, and photo legitimate

A new accolade was recently introduced regarding the number of featuring of hubs. It is a wonderful concept and everyone appreciated. Now I would like request the HP people for introducing a new kind of Accolade. If more than 60% of the hubs of a hubber is Featured, he can...

I saw a dramatic traffic drop today and went to notice that over 100 of my hubs are not featured. While I can understand some of my older ones published over 4 years ago were not that great, some of them were published just months ago and are engaging, have beautiful pictures and very few links....

What milestones have you set for your hubbing?I decided to write hubs as a way to relieve tension. Just sitting down and writing something that is not class related is relaxing. Then I decided that I really like what I'm doing so I started to set goals for myself. Increasing my followers from 18 to...

I have only ever had one featured hub before but when I checked my account today I was shocked to find I have 13 in featured hubs due to low engagement. This is proof that traffic has fallen greatly. It's not just my lowest scoring hubs either..it is right across the board. Is anyone else...

Let me be honest with you, I joined Hubpages in the hope that I will be able to earn some extra income to supplement my college expenses. I know there is no such thing as easy money and I shouldn't expect to live off my earnings on hubpages. But, If I get a good number of my hubs featured, how much...

I'm thinking the answer is probably yes?If you have hubs that have been deemed "not featured", for one reason or another, will that factor into lowering your overall score/rating as a HubPages member? Example--let's say your overall rating is 75. If 10 non featured hubs become...
