    Been here 12 days.

    I've written some rubbish, and my pictures are poor.
    Hopped some Hubs, and made the odd comment (I liked what I saw)
    The occasional follow and answered some questions
    Some forum postings and what do I find?
    I'm 91 points, it fair blows my mind!

    Sorry if this seems (it is) a blatant attempt to big myself up, but I noticed people saying they had 10,000 posts and so on and thought my experience might give hope to anyone newer than me.

    Yeah OK, I'm just amazed that's all. I'm a fraud.

        Hope so!  My titles are edging towards a 'niche' area I think.

      Your stuff is really good!  Unbelievable for 12 days - you deserve your 92 - as it stands now!

      hey 91 is still something to be proud of, as there are some hubbers that have been on here longer with a much lower score.  Congratulations buddy, and welcome to hubpages!

    No, you are not.  Remember, I followed you. If you say you write rubbish, I would have to take that as a direct insult of my taste, which you would NOT want to risk, so therefore you are mistaken. 

    Do some hub hopping.  I find that to be a useful ego boosting activity and if you happen to find some real crud, flagging it helps HP staff make this a better place for all of us.

      It's thanks to people like you Mr.Unix that I have felt emboldened in my Hubpage adventure.

      Thanks friend. I was going to send you a 'joke' fan mail today, but perhaps another time wink

      And thanks to all those who have suffered my newbie bothering over the last few days.  Apologies if I can't yet remember all the names I should.

        By the way, I made use of your drawing.  Just to let you know.

      lol  I can't comment as to your taste, PC, but I happen to agree this time.  Mark's hubs that I've read were enjoyable - a good read - so I won't incur your wrath either. big_smile

      You're sure right about an ego boosting, too.  So much of what I see hub hopping (probably 9 out of 10) I either vote down or simply pass up.  I even flag a few every time I go there.

      I try to hub hop regularly also. I find the odd good hub, and flag the substandard ones as well. Helps to keep the faith when we flag bad hubs.

      I never flag a hub because I disagree with it, only if it is substandard rubbish.

        Ive just hub hopped and realised that most of it is substandard rubbish! lol.  I have suddenly realised how good my stuff is in comparison! lollol

    It kinda makes you wonder about those folks with an author score below 10 don't it? I mean I have seen an author score of 1 before!

    1. Pcunix profile image91
      Pcunixposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      You have to work very hard to get a 1.  I think only a very few have actually attained that distinction

        kirstenblogposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        I think you are right, tho I have seen it more then once and could not really work out how it happened as participating in the forums should knock them up to 2 at least! LOL

          One of my two referral signups has a 1.  I don't imagine I will make much from him(her)! big_smile

    I just want to warn you that this stuff waxes and wanes.  I have been at 100 twice recently, but I have also slipped down as low as 94.  None of it ever makes any sense - the minute you think you have a clue as to why, you find out you do not.

      Thanks.  I now need to start like writing stuff to earn money rather than messing about points grubbing.

    Congratulations, Im wanting to get to 100.... actually, I think my highest has been 97, so 98, 99 or 100 would bew good!!!

    Mark, well done for many things. You are now 93, you've been on HP 13 days and you've written 15 hubs. Keep up the good work. Oh, and as a follower like PC, I wouldn't say you've written rubbish. smile
