    Whoever's face shows up the most below this post is a mystery. Why do I see the same people? I follow very few and none of which are those who I see the most. Why has HP chosen whoever you are to appear on my feed as often as you do?

      I really think that this site used to be used as a blog site - like a social network, but using more words and images. Heck, most of my earliest efforts were really no better than blogger blogs.

      Nowadays the standards here for things are astronomically higher than they used to be, and so, there are not that many persons around any more. There are still a bazillion accounts, but not that many active writers or publishers.

      Some persons are just forum junkies. I try to not be one of those, as I use Facebook for random internet socializing, and do not, as others do, post things like 'hey newbies, listen to maw maw tell you how to do pictures.'

          If I had any sense at all, I would go all in on writing 'how to' things about residential HVAC stuff.I'm more a dreamer than a person who makes any sense though.  I've never had a pool, but I admire your work here. I hope to stick around and get my act together.

            I'm tired, don't feel like writing much here, what I;m thinking is really better for a different forum topic anyways. All I'll say for now is that If you're considering writing "how to" articles about HVAC, you're on the right track.

        #Wesman: For trying not to be a forum junkie I see your face showing up quite a lot lately and not always in a nice manner. How can it be wrong when more experienced writers show newbies how to do things the right way?

        That's okay. I'll take note of your viewpoint and your wisdom, Wesman. I won't bother helping the newbies any more.

        You and your little man-baby pals have made the forum not a particularly pleasant place to be lately.

          I thought it was absolutely hilarious that day when you were complaining about the nice lady who likes to post the quotes. The irony was thick enough for ice skating.

            Are you talking about Kenna? She's sweet as pie.

    Hi, it may be a mystery why my face shows up on this forum thread because I very rarely visit the forums anymore at all. However, here I am. I write mainly poetry, short fiction and creative writing. I doubt you even see my name in your feed....as to where many of our followers and followed have gone that is another question.

      Hey, John, I like to visit the forum pages because I can keep up with what others have to say, and also I find it brings me new followers when I comment. Sometimes the followers stick with me and read my hubs and sometimes they don't. I don't write a lot of hubs because even after I retired, I've been busy ghost writing and editing a book for someone else. Hopefully, I'll get some money out of that. HP has never been very lucrative for me.

        Good points MizB. Good luck with the ghostwriting the book. I have been doing a lot of that lately but all children's picture books. It is not the most lucrative work but in demand so the dollars do add up. I see the last couple of months my HP income has been slowly increasing so that's good.

    Hi Jessie. I don't think it's that mysterious, nor that deep. I show up in your forum posts because you post heady issues that interest me and require observation or introspection. I like to share my take or answer your questions, and read other responses.

      Yes, but how did I pop up on YOUR feed? haha. I don't see any of your posts on my feed.

        Maybe it has to do with who follows whom? Not sure. Anyway, I usually go straight to the forums to see what's shaking.

    Allow me to clarify my OP. From the perspective of looking at the news feed, seeing THIS post, whoever is below that on the rest of my feed is the mystery! I made a post a while back observing that much of what I see on the feed are fundamentalist Christians. That's weird all by itself because I don't subscribe to those forums or pages.
