    I have a goal of 1,000 hubs. Will I really "retire" after I complete my goal?? Prolly not - I'm an addict! lol

      Grats!  If you don't really want to retire, but you don't want to lose that pretty round 1000, you could always write some hubs for me.  I won't tell, I promise smile

            Okay, but it has to be a Rolex - I'm allergic to everything else! lol

              We have all discussed this. Rolex out of the question, you cannot retire and must stay. After 1,000 milestone we will be egging you on to hub number 2000. We'll talk about Rolex after that. lol

      that's awesome.  1000 hubs is a big deal.  I'm at 97 now I think.  Got a ways to go.  Ha ha, yeah you can write some for me too.  Get us to send ya money!  ha ha.  Yes, you don't want to retire yet, it's too much fun.  Today, I'm doing some recipe hubs.  stuffing, cheese ball, etc...  I went in two days ago and started editing my hubs, fine tuning and izzy said my keywords are all over the place.  Suddenly realized how you do the keywords.  Gaining a little bit more traffic, but still doesn't seem like a lot yet.  Probably takes time, if I have done everything right.

      Happy Thanksgiving.  Tom is going to go down my throat really well.

    You missed a zero, habee - you have to write 10,000 hubs before you can retire!

    (Just trying to keep a good hubber writing)!

    When you hit 1,000, we need to have a party - I'll bring the cupcakes!

      That sounds great! I make a tasty cheese ball, so I'll make a few of those.

        Habee, when I saw the title I was coming to cuss you off for "retiring" only to find out you were pulling our legs. You can't leave Habee.

    I didn't think the word 'retire' was in your vocab Habee?? Congrats and good luck on 1000 (we know you can do it) smile

    Next Habee hub: recipe for aforementioned cheese ball.

    Unless you have already written it. Off to look (because I love me some good cheese)!

    Wow that is an amazing number of hubs.  Can't retire, because we are all looking up to you as a role model.

    You won't retire Habee, because Hubpages is a lifestyle choice.

    Eh? Sounds good!

    Oh, I'm not planning on going anywhere. Even if I stopped writing, which I doubt I ever would, I'd still be reading hubs and chatting on the forums!

    Wow, gotta hand it to you.  You are one eager beaver. Keep chewing away and you'll be at 1000 before you know it.  You are an inspiration to all of us.

      Edwin, it's just that I have to write! If I don't, I think my head will explode. lol

    That will be a day of big celebration! But then, you will just set a new goal of 2,000! As Izzy said, it is lifestyle!
