Would would have thought? I kind of wrote the hub as a lark after Simon got sprayed by a skunk- and now it's my best performing hub- Go figure!!!
I guess I need to write more hubs about funny pet stories or something!
(I think I hit the jackpot on key words on it- even though it's on second page of Google it's consistently viewed- now if only I can replicate this a few thousand more times I'll be in business...lol!!!)
One never knows what will take hold. My number one- far and away, by more than double any other hub --is "Using Garden Gnomes for Self-Defense:.
Now, maybe one of us should write about Using Garden Gnomes to Keep Skunks Away from Your Dog-- and blow away both records.
I know what you mean. I started life as a figment of another hubber's imagination. Now my hubs appear to be more popular than his! Go figure. Maybe the world is just looking for a little comedic relief.
What? You're not real? I feel so cheated....LOL
I said I STARTED life that way. To my creator's dismay, I have taken on a life of my own, and am currently plotting his demise! Shh... don't tell him that. I want to catch him off guard.
I hear all things dog are hot right now, but seriously, my best hub is one I cannot believe is doing so well.
But hey, don't fight it! The problem is, it makes you wonder why THAT hub is better than the rest. Go figure.
Humor does seem to get more traffic than researched informative stuff. Speaking of which, I'm going to go find the skunk hub.

Do others think 50 video capsules in one hub is too many? LOLI didn't start out planning to have so many but my undiagnosed OCD kinda kicked in and I just couldn't stop.I tend to think for users with an older PC with not much RAM they would have issues with my hub. Works fine with my 2 Gigs of RAM...

I thought that it might be a bit of fun if we could create a slogan for Hubpages, maybe the guys and gals at Hub HQ will use the best one on the main page (hint hint lol).I was thinking along the lines of:Hubpages, written by the best read by the rest.but that is a bit lame, I am sure that you guys...

I don't get why it is necessary. Doesn't mean they will get any more attention.

I have just had my latest hub copied onto flixya - a site which I have had to get quite a number of my hubs deleted from when they have been stolen and added there. This particular thief I won't be persuing though -they are so stupid that they left my affiliate link in the hub- I only noticed the...
