Curious, who is your favorite hubber, and why?
Everyone has that certain favorite hubber, talent wise, writing skills, personality and someone you look forward to reading or visiting. The answer should be one just as if the hubbers were dangling from a cliff and you are allowed to save only one.. who would that one be.. I'll start it off.. After thinking of so many that I would save.. it came down to Faith Reaper... because my pages will not be complete without Faith..
Frank, I think everyone is afraid to answer this question. Either that or they are thinking about it real hard and reviewing their list of hubbers (it's been almost 2 hours since posting). I have too many favorites still writing here but so many great hubbers I follwed who longer contribute, which is unfortunate. I just went through my list and realized that almost half have not written anything in over a year. Great question, and I can't wait to hear the responses. How many will say you?
oh, A cop out I see..LOL joking I too have a long list but truth be told one stands alone but not far off.. I'd say you're right folks won't admit it in fear of insulting others.. but I have a great list Marlene, Jodah smilealot, audrey..billybuc..
Yes, CJ, most would not touch this one ... but dear Frank, thank you again for going out on a limb or cliff for me and saying that your truth is that I stand alone : ) ... the lone Reaper LOL Shhh, I won't let the secret out that you are a sweet man
I have quite a few favorites. Billybuc, Longtimemother, fpherj48, ChristinS, and I am sure a few others. Bill, LTM, and ChristinS write about topics I really enjoy reading about and fpherj48 has an amazing writing personality! Choosing one is hard, but if I had to narrow it down to two it would be both LTM and Bill since they are the only two I talk to outside of HP website. And if like you said they were both falling off a cliff I guess I would save LTM because she is like my internet mom. Bill is tough and I know could save himself! Lol!
Have I told you lately what a sweet, smart, pretty young Mom you are?? LOL Flattery will get you in my will!! LOL
Aw shucks girl thanks Many of the ones you mention are also my favorites, you included.
I love Titen-Sxull, for real. He is an excellent writer. I love his poems and stories. But I don't agree with anything he says most of the time. Still love him, though!
Interesting ...I will check out his poems and stories.
I'll be the wise guy and say me, because I'm awesome. Humility is not my strong suit.
Have to love our moms even if their love produces delusional children. LOL Kidding ...Hugs to you fat cat
I couldn't and wouldn't answer this. A favorite hubber? Frank, how can any of us help but love MANY hubbers? I've freely admitted to Linda Sue (Suinshine625) being my "Main Squeeze" for a number of reasons. Mainly she's the very reason I'm here......I love my Downstate buddy Tillie.....My Southern Belle GF..."DJ".....MY "BRO" bill.....Somethingblue...my brainiac boy toy.....Martie, my Aries sister.....Maria....My Earth Angel.....Victoria (I call her Vee).....The Bravest of Warriors...."Sha"......Vicky Warner....sweet little peeples....Christin Sanders....Au fait.....Dr bj Breakfast pop.....Keith makes me laugh.....You see? I could go on and on and I should because I just know I've left out several hubbers who mean so much to me......Now I feel I need to aplogize to anyone I didn't mention.Please know I love you all!
BTW....I love your poetry.....but I can't get silly with you and make outrageously fabricated statements......because then I get emails from people asking if we are having an affair!!?? I never even had a REAL affair much less a virtual one!! LOL!
Frank has certainly posed a question which creates an arduous task ...for All are our favorites in their own unique way! But I am happy to know he wouldn't let me drop into the abyss LOL ...well, at the time of his posting this anyway... Hahaha
Oh my, I am blushing now I've seen my name twice - and both times by two of my faves you and peeples I feel so loved
What the Faith, my dearest virtual friend/lifesaver, Frank! I am speechless for once in my life ...well, we'll see, and thankfully I had my hour commute home to recover from such an endearing gesture on your part ...That has to be the sweetest thing I've ever read ..."my pages will not be complete without Faith" as it could very well have a double meaning ...the Faith part : ) Hey, you started your very own" Frank Hug of the Day Award" here, or "Save a Hubber Today Award" ... smiles. I saw this pop up on my phone while at work and could not respond until arriving home. Thank you for blessing my socks off this day LOL Well, I am not wearing socks (this is the South - the heat is on), so thank you for blessing my strappy sandals off and touching my heart deeply.
This is a tall order you have posed here for all. Ho appena realizzato quanto sei bella e quanto grande il vostro affetto sono per me. Okay, this is my official answer to your question: "Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends." John 15:13 So, if need be, I would give you my climbing gear as I know I am in good hands with God for He promises to keep our feet from slipping and I always claim His promises. Being love is the strongest bond in this life that when we give it away freely or accept it unconditionally, it cannot be broken easily and grows even stronger ...so, I would save you dear Frank from dropping to your death by hooking you to my climbing gear belt LOL, AND then I would ensure (with your help) that all those I follow and who follow me/you hold on to each other tightly to form one long chain or bond of friendship all the way down or up the side of the cliff ...so, in reality we are all ONE, if you think about it : ) ...Or as the song says, I get by with a little help from my friends (all of them bound together forming ONE friendship -friendship is a special kind of love).
I know I cheated here by not choosing one, but I did make us all into one big hubber LOL.
Dearest Frank, I needed this beautiful gesture tonight, so thank you for always making me smile here, there, everywhere and blessing us all with your riveting writing, which is always more exhilarating than dangling off a cliff. I am sending you lots of warm southern hugs your way.
In His Love Always ...Keep the Faith
Your virtual friend for life, until you drop me ... : )
With open hearts ...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTnWFT3DvVA I will gladly lay down my life for my friends, as I will see you again.
Hahah...you know I had to mess with you on this one. On lunch break now, but glad the "Reaper" is your FAV. Oops forgot HP doesn't like links added here, so you can delete and I will start over w/o grim Reaper LOL : )
I would have to say Feenix, He is a great writer passionate about what he writes.He handlea criticism with grace, but also stands up for himself when someone is stepping over the boundaries.
Also Dashing because She has a way with words great writer, and even if you dont agree, she is always very honest and straightforward and openminded.
i know just one but
BizWhiz to is a great writer and when he does offer criticism it is done with style and i love his point of view
There are many others but these are the ones that have made the most impact on hubpages for me
Hubpages indicates Feenix has been banned from Hubpages, is there a different Feenix to which Nichol is referring?
no i just checked i apologize must have happened recently,maybe he was a little to enthuastic about stabding up for himself.
I am sorry to see that Feenix has been banned. He was a great hubber, very funny, and not afraid to tell it like it was. Some people had a problem with that, I guess.
No, Christine there was only one feenix. feenix has been banned yesterday. Yes, he was a passionate writer.
Oh ... I do know feenix, for he just recently started following me and I him, and if he I the same one in my mind, he sure does have a powerful testimony about sobriety and Jesus healing him. Does that sound like the same person.
Who would I choose as my cliff hanger?
It's me! I am truly hanging from a cliff as a writer. I shall either fall or rise.
Allow me to explain my choice:
I use Hubpages to do a lot of productive really roughly drafted poetry. Each hub is a vignettes: a very small written episode that will fade in the background to a greater work, a novel perhaps, and then a theatrical production, or classic film. Therefore, I visit my own hubs the most, primarily the "Edit Your Profile, "click" Hubs. Or "Start A Hub"
Nobody would know thiese things on Hubppages but me: I've been writing since age 3; and my ordinary, yet very rich life of 53 1/2 years afforded me time to develop wise talents outside of writing, educate and explore the skills and talents of others, strengthen a vivacious idiosyncratic personality that is a side affect to my brilliance as a woman knowing and appreciating all fine art. I'm gold!
I keep a couple of professionally framed art pieces in my very small living space, one is an acrylic art production of a Northern MI artist, the other is a showcased tapestry I created from scratch. I also have two-legged art roaming the countryside: namely my own six children, who first started out aquatic (in me).
My rich personal history, these two, the six, and the friendly format of Hubpages to draft, rework, etc is a strong motivating factor that someday a novel/film may come, for now, I visit myself most on my spineless but productive Hub pages masked as "abstract art" " poetry miscellany"... and now my newer up and coming genre "back-pack fiction".
Conclusively, If you should visit me, I'll be in back editing most of the time, alone, not on stage. I'll let you know if that novel or film ever comes out...it's sure not to be a cliff-hanger.
If I were to reconsider my answer to this question it would be that guy in Shelton, CT. I read his hubs. They help my potential to rise higher in any writing style I may choose for a future novel. I really enjoyed his encouragement last year as a writer to join in his Writing Challenge. But mostly, when I visit his hubs, I can usually pick a sentence, expression, description, each time in his entries that tells me, he's a talented writer aiming to please his audience. I want to do that someday, for now, mine are drafts. I don't comment necessarily on each of his entries, but if anyone is backstage editing for a potential classic suspense film: He is my choice as The Cliff Hanger.
- needless to close: christinemariezzz
lol another cop out ? lol love the last section of your comment though
Remembering that I am stupid: Explian "cop out" please?
oh ur not stupid.. failing to pick one besides yourself or doing what faith says she'll do..LOL
Okay, I admit I love all I follow and who follow me, but I am really into that Shelton guy up there in Nutmeg land too, so if I could go back and change my answer I may have chosen the Nutmeg/Shelton guy. His writing gives me the chills LOL ...
First one that comes to mind is James A Watkins. A veteran Hubber, I'm yet to read a Hub of his that hasn't been absorbing.
Oh, wow, I love James A. Watkins, but haven't seen anything from him as far as hubs being published in a very long time? He is an amazing writer no doubt and his topics are always interesting.
You're right, although his activity log says he's still around. I assume his writing commitments have expanded and allowed him less time on HP.
Yes, most likely the case. Seems a lot of truly great writers have moved on from HP ...
I agree, James is number one in my book. He makes it look easy, and most times his arguments are air tight. And he's not afraid to mix it up in debate.
If I could save one person, it would be Nellieanna. She is lovable, a chic lady, always filled with compliments, and is genuine. If I could pick more than one, I would save everybody, because this site would not exist without their work. They are all good writers in their own way with a few exceptions that I don't know about right now. This site is filled with friendship, and no one should ever fall off a cliff. Can't you see a cliff with hubbers all posed at the top? Then we all hold hands and leave the precipice. What a pic.
Oh, Nellieanna is so precious and gifted! Yes, Audrey, I can see it, as that is what I have pictured in my mind too ...all as one wonderful writing community all together supporting each other. Great answer! Bless you
Hey, Frank, it's me, the one who completes your pages LOL ... I had placed an image on my answer but it disappeared. Anyway, it was of people handing of a mountain cliff together.
Hey Faith its me Frank, maybe it fell off the cliff
Yes, Frank, I believe it did, My computer is crazy tonight, must be from dangling on this cliff wire LOL I tried three times to leave a comment on your new hub and they disappear before I hit post! LOL ...Maybe in the morning that net will catch it!
I was going to pretend I hadn't read this Frank..so I didn't have to answer..it's too tough to choose out of so many. I they were falling o a cliff I'd need to through a net over to catch them all. I particularly like the work of Chris Mills, Phyllis Doyle...among others...at least I narrowed it down to one of each sex. Now I am thinking of half a dozen others that I'd like to save....damn.
In my efforts to get established in my new location, I have fallen so far behind here on Hub Pages. I just noticed this question and your response to it, John. Thanks for your kind words.
You are welcome Chris. Hope the move went well and look forward to reading more hubs from you soon.
Interesting question and interesting answers!
I am sure it must have been a difficult question to answer for everyone. I too have many favorites. I like all of them for their different style of writing. And their support is very precious to me. I am always curious to get their feedback on my hubs.
Some of my favorites do not contribute here any more. Those who encouraged me as a writer, when I joined HP. I miss them.
Thank you for asking this question!
How do you pick just one? Hopefully there would not be more than one dangling from a cliff at at time, I mean what are the odds? lol I have so many that I read and enjoy here, in no way could I pick only one.
First let me come up with some we haven't seen mentioned here yet (I don't think) Mizbejabbers who is very interesting, smart and always leaves great comments. MHiggins is very knowledgeable and friendly and has great DIY hubs - the most detailed and concise directions. DavidStone oh gosh, Kittythedreamer I love her hubs, and of course peeples and fpherj as I interact a lot with these great ladies especially on the Q & A and find them both to be strong women with great minds and very witty. DashingScorpio is always there with great, thought provoking answers as well. Oh and gmwilliams - always a lot of interesting questions to ponder. I could go on and on but I won't.
Please none of you fall off cliffs lol I can't save you all
This is a real challenge since there are so many I enjoy, but, since I have 2 hands, I will pick two: Genna East and Audrey Howitt. Both are so gifted at creating superb imagery through their mastery of words, and each has offered me so much support and kindness over the years. Thank you, ladies:)

How much time should you give before rendering the 'best answer' to a Hubber?Us Hubbers now have the option to award fellow Hubbers who are very helpful at answering questions here in the Q&A section, what do you think is a fair time to give many other potential answers you may...
by Kat 10 years ago
This has happened to me a few times. I'll leave a comment or give an answer in the Q&A section... and I will get attacked (for lack of a better word) by some other Hubber who has a different point of view or belief than I do.It hurts, I mean hurts. There I am trying to be a good...

I understand it difficult times but what good will deleting hubs do? I see some of the most prolific hubbers deleting heaps of hubs. Have we lost the hope of a hubpages bounce back?
by jill-of-all trade 13 years ago
Curious to this question? Im new here...but not new to writing or forums...My question is this....if you knew the true character of a fellow writer here and he/she writes relatively knowledgable articles.....but what if that person were not what they seemed....Would that make a difference, or is it...
