    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?

      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!

    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!

    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 ...  : )   
    Faith Reaper

    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.

    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

      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.

      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?
    ~christinemariezzz
    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

      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.

    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.

    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 wink I can't save you all

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:)
