    Do you remember the hubber that gave you your first comment?  ... or became your first fan.

    I hit my one year mark on Hubpages a few weeks ago and it made me think about when I started out and why, and that reminded me of my first comment and how excited/grateful I was, and what a nice comment it was. This person's name came up in a thread I was just reading which again reminded me that I wanted to start this thread.

    Anyway, my first comment on my first hub (which I recently had to remove) was Sufidreamer!

      Woah, I hardly even remember the name of the first one. I think it was this hubber who was into solar heating and that sort of thing, and his name was Irwin or something. He's not really active on HP anymore.

      Misha was one of the first that joined my fan club after that.

    I've only been around a couple of months but it was Kimberleylyrics and I was so pleased because I felt like I was on my way.

    I was so nervous because I had no fans and kept to myself for about 2 months [lyricsingray] last year]

    and I was blown away by this guy who wrote hubs on helping hubbers and our how our system works.

    I nervously left a comment on a hub and bless him if he didn't fan me.

    I will never forget that


    Thank you

    The person to comment on my first hub and become my fan was Benson Yeung.  It was nice to be accepted.

    Blondepoet was my first fan, i was so happy to see her, i read every word of every one of her hubs at the time.  I was knew to computers, as well as hub pages.  It was a whole new world  openin up to me.

    Having only been here 5 weeks, that's easy enough.   Madeline Oscar noted that she was my first fan in the fan mail she left, so that makes it even easier.

    Though I do not know why she followed me.  She writes about computer gaming and that sort of thing, which is something I have zero interest in.  Of course she probably has other interests :-)

    I think the second and third might have been some of those fake people who come and go.

    first time I signed up, my first fan was Misha. I don't remember my first comment but I am pretty sure it was Bad Co. This time my first fan was Enlydia Listener, and my first comment was from

    It is so easy to forget - but every comment is like the first for me! I must be very, very blond, or very, very old but I appreciate all the folks who bother to read and then write! It's a thrill every time. Especially if they come back - I'm really stoked then!!

    I feel honored to have been mentioned smile

    Truthfully, I have a strong kinship with all hubbers here. Though I have been away a bit, it's not for lack of hospitality here. I was just working hard to build a little site of my own ... and ... um ... it sort of went from hobby to realtime and blossomed.

    And this brings me to something I would like to say to all hubbers here. Never think less of yourself for what you write or how you write it. Consider writing a gift you can share with others and do so without being selfish and keeping it all to yourself.

    Open up your thoughts and let the whole world in. What happens next just might surprise you! smile

    I've only been here for a couple of months too. It was Immartin who commented first, I was thrilled. And she fanned me as well I was so pleased I follow her consistantly. She is a great hubber.

      Me, too!  I'm shocked that I remembered that far back - I actually had to go look at my first hub and verify and, sure enough, it was earnestshub!  Where's he been, anyway?  Haven't seen him around in a while...

    I remember Justine mentioning she fanned me first and when I went to return the favor I couldn't remember who had just fanned me!  So, I fanned myownworld.  (wow!  my memory has improved sooo much over the past 5 months!! lol)

    I can’t remember who might have left the first comment,
    but I do know for sure Breakfastpop

    Wow, it's been slightly over a year for me!  Before joining, I had decided to read a few hubs, and it was Frogdroppings series on Kevin that had me rolling with laughter that prompted me to join.  I love her hubs.  One of the most memorable things after joining and publishing my first hub was Froggy was my first fan.  How cool is that!  lol  She's laying low in her pond these days....but miss her humor! 

    FROGGY WHERE ARE YOU?!?  (You told me to shout if I needed anything) lol

    my first comment was from a girl in texas, no longer on the site. she wasn't very active, but I didn't know and was thrilled with my first comment and fan.

    second was from europewalker!! those first few comments and fans make such an impression.

    I think that Tricia and I have deleted some of our earliest hubs. This thread is so interesting that I had a look for our 'oldest' comment, and it was from kia31.

    We are still excited and delighted by every comment that we receive.

    Not sure my first comment, but I definitely recall my first fan.  It was BadCompany99 (or one of his BC incarnations).  We continue to leave each other hub comments from time to time.  He'll always hold a special place with me.
