      Hey Sean,

      At least you could have provided the link to Shadesbreath's hub.

      You would have been helping yourself and Shades. wink

        Cags, I deliberately avoided being helpful because my challenge is to concentrate on the social side of hubbing. I am determined to become a master of losing friends and alienating people.My  challenge is to lose all my 38 followers in 30 days.

          Well, there is an easier way to do that.

          Just email every one of your followers can ask them to stop following you. hmm

            Far too easy a solution. To be a true master of ineptitude it has to be done in a much more contrived and roundabout fashion. I didn't get where I am today by being logical.

              Well, that's obvious. Just from your words and your actions, speaks volumes about your plight and course. lol lol

                seanorjohn,

                Your plan is backfiring. You're gaining followers.  Had to be done, I take my laughs where I can get them :p

                  You are not being true to yourself by following me. I just read your hub where you claim to be a master procrastinator. You have revealed yourself to be a devious, backstabbing charlaton. No self respecting procastinator would make such a hasty decision. I will follow to check out how else you are trying to deceive the good people of hubpages. Then I will wreak all manner of revenge to inflict maximum public humiliation on you.  You have been warned.

          I decided to fan you because of this... but discovered I am already a follower.  Yes, Shades presented his ideas very well... I am worried that people will NOT follow his advice and will start making a lot of money, and ignore all of us.
          Since reading it I have had my best earning week ever!  (only 8 bucks... but still...)

            seanorjohnposted 8 years agoin reply to this

            Only 8 bucks! There are people out there who could bring up a family of 10 for 20 years on that kind of money.

      Yes, I did too.  It's worth posting again, though for those that didn't catch it the first time around.

        Starme, I can't compete with shades on the commercial side because some misguided fool clicked and got me 1 cent.This is why I need to prove myself as the most useless social hubber.That is why I must prove myself as the best at losing friends and alienating people.

    Thanks for posting this Seanorjohn, that was a nice.  THanks to Cags for the link too.  Nice to get a little blast of traffic on it before it fades away do to lack of SEO.  tongue
