What Hubwriters do you admire and why?

    This is a little different than 'what hubbers do you have a crush on' and not so "putting you on the spot"lol

    I will go later. I'm new smile

      admire? 'k, that is different than like or have a crush on, so in that case i would say:

      Darkside because he is a fount (font?) of knowledge and doesn't horde it but shares it freely, which says a lot about him personally.

      i admire Sunforged for his meticulous research and sharing of information. he is very technical and knowledgable and i guess i could be that way too someday if i put the effort into it, which i don't, so i admire him for his obvious hard work and effort in that regard.


      i also admire Marisa Wright because she is successful and considered a 'power hubber' and is well respected by the community but doesn't expect people to curtsey to her.

      i admire Oli because he is also very successful but doesn't go around bragging about his success or feeling like he is better than others for it.

      i admire Sufidreamer for his positivity and sweet nature.

      i admire Winsome's formidable writing skill set.

      i admire rebekeahELLE for following her own path and having confidence in her self and her writing.

      and that wild and crazy guy, Adsense Strategies, who also gets my 'like' and 'crush' votes as well smilewink

      I hang out in the Religious forum and I have come across many highly evolved souls there .
      I like the way many write and I am bound to leave out a few names.
      Jerami
      Sandra
      SparklingJewel
      ceciliabeltran
      crmhaske
      Twenty One Days
      this is to name just a few good writers
      Why because I have learned something from each and every one of them.
      They have knowledge to share.

      The biggest idiots who insist on writing rubbish

        Mark Knowles for his sense of humor
        earnesthub- have had good debates with him
        and paraglider for his sens of humour.
        And off course my friend paarsurrey who gets carried away at times.smile

      I am guilty of trying to write too often at the moment and not seeing what and who else is out there doing all the wonderful stuff.  It must be lovely to be admired in the community - respect from people who write so well is a great prize.

      Thank you, this series of answers to your original question is really interesting.

    Good heavens, this could be a very long list indeed but I'll try to keep it simple-

    Carolina Muscle has some of the funniest hubs!

    Pcunix keeps me entertained through his wit!

    KPartin writes amazing hubs on very important topics.

    Habee has a fantastic personality that shows in all her hubs.

    Mega1 writes in such an engaging way that it's impossible to simply scan through any of her work.

    GraceFaith writes beautifully about wonderful topics I love to read.

    MightyMom, Pachua213, Isabella Snow, FrankiesGirl6, and others all feel the same pain I have and have found ways of transferring that to well written hubs that convey strength and survival.

    Cagsil, Misha, Neil Sperling, Dave Mathews, RGNestle, Kangaroo Jase, Greek One, springboard, daniel carter, RedElf, Ghost23, and countless others give me plenty to ponder, laugh about, and enjoy.

    I know that I'm not listing everybody but I have a deep respect for so many writers here!

    Mine is Sufidreamer.  Because he is so kind, and always stays true to himself.  He doesn't lash out, I've never seen him lose control, he is an excellent hub writer, and an overall well-rounded HubPages.com member and friend. 

    Great hubber. http://hubpages.com/profile/Sufidreamer.

    Thanks IE and Cosette - you made me blush.

    They are both hubbers worth reading - IE has a fascinating way of looking at religion and spirituality, and Cosette takes you on a wonderful trip through American pop culture.

    There are many talented wordsmiths on Hubpages - Paraglider, Blondepoet and Shades have been mentioned. I would add

    CJ Stone - A professional journalist and travel writer
    Teresa McGurk - She can make you laugh and cry in a single sentence.
    James Watkins - I love his writing voice
    Aya Katz - Her work with Bow is a must read
    D.A.L. - He is from my part of the world and always makes me feel a little homesick!
    Ghost32 - Love his hubs about building his own home from sandbags
    Hal Licino - I disagree with his political views, but I like the guy and he is a very engaging writer
    Cris A - A good writer and creative with Photoshop, too.
    LondonGirl - She is getting her own site up and running and is sadly missed, but writes wonderful Hubs about English history

    There are many more, but these fine, entertaining writers are a great start smile

    eh, there's too many to name to be honest, as im afraid i might leave a few out by accident.  i'll just say that the hubbers i admire are all the people that follow me, and all the hubbers i follow.  they know who they are, so that's all that matters. 

    although i will say, i do tend to model my style of critiquing films after Roger Ebert and Peter Travers a lot, as i incorporate different aspects of their style into my own.  Like I love Roger Ebert's bluntness about ANY movie, and how he's not afraid to tell you if something sucks and he'll tell it like it is.  Then there's Peter Travers that always seems to give a full analytical review and seems to do a lot of research on the movies he reviews.  like if it's based off a novel or comic book (for instance), it always seems like he'll know exactly if the movie is true to the source or not.  which leads me to believe he does a lot of research.  hence, i try to incorporate that along with Ebert's bluntness into my style.  of course, im no where near as good as they are.  as i consider myself nothing more than a piss ant to them, but i do admire them though.  lol.  sorry, i didn't mean to hijack this forum.  lol

    thanks cosette and kyriana, honored to be admired by such wonderful writers.

    I really admire everyone I follow, and I follow people from everywhere, for that reason.. I think it's fascinating to read hubs written by people from different countries, continents, cultures. I've cried, laughed, felt comfort and sheer joy, just about every emotion while reading hubs and I do read many. I don't always comment, but I travel through Hubville finding treasures everywhere. this morning I actually went on an adventure with CJ Stone birdwatching along the Danube Delta into Romania. it is pure pleasure. :]

    but I admire many more than I follow. someone will pop up on my newsfeed or in the forum, and I admire their voice.

    I admire Hubber: Art 4 Life.

    Her tales of living on the mountain in a completely different culture are outstanding. She writes from personal experience & is blunt, as well as to the point.  Her generosity is real.  for what she's been through, & is going through now, she's risen above it all by allowing herself to have compassion on those who persecute her & using humor to deal with it.

    Hats off to 'Art 4 Life'!!

      Thanks for including me in your list myownworld - I have also always enjoyed reading your hubs.

      There are so many great hubbers but:

      I think that Arthur Windermere has one of the most original outlooks on life on HubPages.

      Hello, hello writes lots of interesting hubs and is great at writing comments on other Hubber's hubs.

      Also Nell Rose, 2patricias and SandySpider

      And for selling hubs, the best hubber has to be Nelle Hoxie, who is also so generous in sharing her knowledge

    Dozens more, I hate doing these really, seeing as I miss people out.... I tend to lean towards the SEO and Affiliate marketers, or the people who use their talents in a highly commercial sense, rather than in a purely creative sense. I respect all types of hubbers however, but SEO and marketing has become my primary interest - particularly as my flair for writing is somewhat limited. I like to think that I have a half decent business head however.

    Sufidreamer is the odd one out on that list, in that he has a great deal of talent but monetises in a different way - bidding for tenders.

    I don't read too much if I am honest, not as much as I should, I couldn't name a single hubpage of many of the people that I enjoy talking to in the forum....

    Justine76 - who isn't here anymore.  I admire Justine's style and her willingness to share her life with us - if it weren't for Justine I probably wouldn't have shared so much of my life.

    Qwark - his writing intrigues me, although I often don't agree with him.

    Cagsil - he's always there and willing to help.

    lmmartin - she willingly shares her knowledge on life and writing.

    Shazwellyn - her gentle persuasion will never convince me, but I admire her spirit for trying.

    Aficionada - her forum posts always sound well thought out and kind.


    I admire every hubber who participates regularly in the forums - for sharing their knowledge, showing the rest of us how to have fun, being there to support another hubber as needed, and, for those who aren't easily offended - anyone who is patient enough to put up with me and my lack of understanding in the social department.  smile big_smile

          I'm not sure if it is a joke or not? I suspect that I may be on the list for stating that I don't like her friend Cagsil.. although ironically I have grown to like him. I would find it most unusual if she held a grudge against that many people at once, that is a hefty list.

          I can quite literally count on one finger the number of people that I genuinely dislike on this site, and that person had to send me threats of physical violence to achieve that classification.

          Sure, there are a few that get right on my nerves. A few that I disagree with 95% of the time, a few with massively inflated egos, but it takes a lot for me to genuinely dislike somebody. However, it could be a joke hmm

          In fact I am pretty certain that it IS a joke, as Cagsil is on her list... a few days ago they still seemed to very much get on like a house on fire? Joke it is...
