    It is hard to believe that 13 years have passed since I wrote my first post on this site.  Many things have changed over the years, and what I appreciate most are the HP friends from all around the world that I have gotten to know.  Cheers to friendships new and old!

      Many Congratulations Dear Peggy!
      That’s a huge achievement. HubPages is not the same as it was earlier. But, I completely agree with you, that the biggest strength of this site is it’s global supportive community.
      I have always enjoyed reading your articles over the years, and I cherish your friendship. I will complete 10 years shortly.
      Thank you and my best wishes for you always.

      Wow! Has it been that long? Amazing. Congratulations on sticking around through thick and thin. I think we started here about the same time. I came in 2009. It's been a crazy ride but through all the changes, like you said, it's the friendships that we've developed and enjoyed as we built our styles over the years.
      Cheers to you, Peggy. I always enjoy reading your work and seeing the fabulous photos you share on your travels.
      Hugs,
      Peg

    I have been a hubpage around the same time as yours. I wasn't active back then as I wasn't earning anything until vertical sites creation from hubpages began drawing in a considerably traffic.

    So many changes have occurred.

    Congratulations, Peggy. You started writing on HubPages a year earlier than I began. One of the reasons I see that you’ve been so successful is that you keep all your articles fresh with updated content. That’s a lot of work, especially with all the articles you’ve published, but I know it pays off well for keeping up with it. And your passion for traveling, nature, and photography surly keeps you going with endless ideas to write about. This is not only your 13th anniversary, but it’s also a tribute to your success!

    Hi chef-de-jour,

    To answer your question about a "secret formula for HP longevity with success"...it does take a while to gain traction and keep learning how best to optimize our articles.  I knew nothing in the beginning, and the information in the learning center has been so very helpful.  We also learn from one another.  There are some terrific writers on this site!
