    I'm in my 12th year with HubPages and just reached a significant milestone. Today my stats report went over the 3,000,000 mark and I'm doing my happy dance. smile

      Happy for you Glenn. You've worked hard to achieve great numbers... plus you're a fount of knowledge and good advice for those of us who get lost in the HP maze occasionally.

      Dancing eh? A Scottish reel, an Irish jig, jiving, twisting, boogie-wooging?

      Thank you Maria. It takes time too, but it's time well-spent. Not many other types of work continue to pay reciduals for work done once. Writing software and writing educational articles are two I can think of.

    2. Miebakagh57 profile image69
      Miebakagh57posted 10 months agoin reply to this

      MPG. Narrative, I agree with you. One should be determine, not loss heart, not give up, and remember the spider story trying to get home, and told by the old king.                                                 And before one would say Jack, the spider was home before the very eyes of the King.                                              This 'foolish thing' that nearly 'kill itself' made it?                                    And, the King had cause to change his mind and change the story! 'Bravo, bravo', he cry. 'Honour to all those who try'. Glenn, deserves the honour. Let it be continous with his 'happy dance'.

    I just want to share with everyone that more remarkable achievements are possible with HubPages. Some people have reached enough views for the next accolade after one million, which is TEN MILLION.

    For example, the following have over ten million views and they deserve tremendous credit for that milestone.

    • Barbara Fitzgerald (Solaras)
    • Dan Harmon (wilderness) 
    • Andrew Spacey (chef-de-jour)
    • Paul Goodman
    • Eugene Brennan (eugbug)

        Four years sure went by fast, Barbara. I remember chatting with you on the last day, after Maven's final conference meeting. Congratulations on approaching 12 Million. I agree that they need more accolades. They're spread too far apart. smile

  32. revmjm profile image87
    revmjmposted 10 months ago

    There was a fellow writer on HubPages who used to criticize me for writing "Christian" instead of writing "disciple of Christ." We went back and force about the terms for a long time. Since he was one of my dedicated followers, I gave in and began writing "disciples of Christ" instead of "Christian."

    After that, we became good friends even though we never met in person. He no longer writes for HubPages because he became very ill and died.  He emailed me and told me the doctors said he was too old to get more surgeries. Now, every time I am tempted to write "Christian" I remember his argument, and I write "disciple of Christ" instead.  I smile as I think about him and how convincing he was.
