    This hub has all the right ingredients for a fun, light, and laugh out loud read.  It's true, it's unique, and the narrative voice is delightful.  Have fun.  smile

    Thank you for putting this link on forums.  What a hoot and something we've all experience at one time or another.  Just a great hub!

      Yeah, Stan is pretty hilarious.  I just read his last four and they're all pretty damn funny.  He just amused the crap out of me for a half hour or so.  I love being amused.  big_smile

      My pleasure.  Something that funny has to be seen, and nobody will be Googling it.

      Frankly, I'm still working on figuring out how to make a more reader friendly suggestion to HP.  HubHopping is interesting.  But there has to be some algorithm that could tabulate word count to time spent on page, then factor in comments and thumbs up... all done by hub category... to create a reading list or something so that gems like this one don't sink so quickly into the sea of marketing stuff.  I see written all the time by the big earners not to worry about hubpage views.  "It's search engines that count."

      And that's great. But, what it ignores is that there ARE hubpage readers, so if we could find a way to index the reader friendly stuff FOR people who DO come to HP to read, then we (HP) could present a more reader friendly face that not only generates HP readership, but members and, therefore hubs.  Imagine a writing site that actually values content that READERS like and not just spiders.  Just a thought.

      Not sure how it would work.  Maybe they'll hire me and put me to it.  big_smile

      THAT is cool.  I never even think of Facebook.  I have one, I just never use it, so it never occurs to me.  BUt then, I am the worst SEO person on all of HP.  [sigh]

    Thanks for the recommendation Shadesbreath! I have been a follower of Stan for awhile, but just haven't been keeping up with my reading of hubs lately.  It was a fantistic hub!  I'll have to keep up more with Stan.

      I know.  I turned off my notifications a long time ago, so I have to keep up with people manually.  I suppose it's better that way, because I read them in chunks and get sort of a "theme" going on the days I have time to read.
