I am sitting working on hubs and someone else's webiste, watching the snow fall outside, and listening to my husband play with the kids upstairs, and it made me want to say a big THANKYOU to all the lovley helpful and kind hubbers who gave me tips, advice, critique and encouragement. Without that level of support I would right now be stacking shelves in my local supermarket (as that was our back up plan if I couldn't earn enough online).
well i dont remember ever helping you out but still would take your thank
I used to stack shelves, clean toilets, flip burgers and pretty much any dead end job that was designed to bring you down.
Well done on your goals reached and many more to come!
Spacey, that is lovely! Not that there is anything wrong with stocking shelves, some has to do it or we cant shop! But it is nice to hear that you are able to be doing something you love, with the kids near by. Keep them hubs coming and see what happens eh?
Kirsten - I used to stack shelves in the shop and my mum still works there so I meant no offence But it would be so stressful to go back to working out the home - trying to get time off when kids are sick, or have holidays, or school plays etc etc. Where I live 'there's always FiveWays (name of shop)' is everyone's back-up plan .
pisean - you have at least always been around for a chat and that is plenty enough help
Hi Mark - I am trying to help - not really sure how helpful I am though
Spacey. A response on the forums, an answer to a question, a comment on a newbie hub - these are all things that give great encouragement to the beginner starting out.
I took no offense hun
I do think that society as a whole tends to place values on some of the most useless stuff. I like to try to remind folks when I can that the 'little' jobs are the ones we would miss the most if we didn't have folks willing to do them, while those big celebrity type things we value so highly would cause no harm if they ceased to exist. It is nice tho that you are able to enjoy a slice of family bliss today due to the internet . I guess that is one of those things of more value then celebrities
It sucks the way people in lower paid jobs are treated. Like I said I used to work in a supermarket on minimum wage and people were so rude to me - customers, and people I met socially. Then a couple of years ago I was a communications manager on about 3 times as much money and I was treated like the best thing since sliced bread - but seriously if we woke up tomorrow and there were no supermarket workers or communications managers going into work, who would you miss the most!!
Exactly! I find it disgusting how undervalued an honest days work is compared to those jobs that require very little integrity, if ya know what I mean
Kudos's on you for doing a job that is underpaid but actually contributes something to your community even if you are not in that same job now You seem a very 'salt of the earth' type of person. Remember when that was something to aspire to? Being 'salt of the earth'
I think 'salt of the earth' seems to mean 'rough' now - which is said - I'll do pretty much anything to pay the bills. Goal is to be home with the sprogs while keeping a roof over our heads, food in the cupboard and petrol in the car . I am a simple person (rather than a simpleton).
Spacey - I don't believe I provided you with any direct help, but I wanted to say that I'm happy for you that hubbing has worked out well for you and enabled you to be able to work from home rather than outside the home! I'm in the same boat!
Ohh, yeah, must feel good, congrats! I need to get 278 hubs up, so jealous.
I don't know if I've helped you or not Spacey, but thanks for the appreciation anyway
Congrats Spacey, I am sure you are serving as inspiration to others.
I don't think I have helped you in any ways, except to root for you and others here!

Hi all,I've been here a month now and have 20 hubs, but when I read some of the forum posts I am worried that my traffic is low. I have had around 680 views total for all of my 20 hubs which averages about 6 per day for most of them, on average. I know it takes time to build up traffic and I am...

Do you think, it would be very encouraging to get accolades after completing every 10,000 views?
