When you see someone with a large number of hubs, followers or accolades (or all of it), do you do the math? That is, do you divide their time here by your time here and then see if your followers, hubs or accolades are on track?
I know I do.. And some of 'em are hard to imagine.
The real question is are you REALLY doing the math correctly?
For example, if you are calculating my followers based on the fact I've been on the site for four years, you are doing inaccurate math. That feature didn't exist when HubPages first started. I've gotten those followers in the time after that feature was added, which is less than four years.
I’ve seen new folks who have been here 2 months and they have already racked up 300 followers; invariably these new folks are cuter than I am…
I will also look at it sometimes and think that people must not do anything else besides spend time on the computer.

Why do some people ask like 20 questions in a single day?

What milestones have you set for your hubbing?I decided to write hubs as a way to relieve tension. Just sitting down and writing something that is not class related is relaxing. Then I decided that I really like what I'm doing so I started to set goals for myself. Increasing my followers from 18 to...

While surfing hubpages I noticed that some hubbers have milestones. Such as get 1000 followers or publish 10 hubs. I wonder if I can set my own milestones and where?
