I have hub #299 written and will proof-read and release it tomorrow.. at that point, I will need to begin working on hub number 300.
I have seen this sort of milestone be the cause of some consternation. What to write?
Shrug. Whatever I feel like writing tomorrow. That is, IF I even feel like writing tomorrow, because I might not and if I don't, number 300 is just going to have to wait, isn't it?
I mean, really, where does HubPages get off putting this kind of pressure on me? Just because they send me money now and then, is that supposed to make me want to write more?
Well, ok, yes, it kind of does. Fine, you have me on that point. But can the muse of inspiration be expected to bend to the whip of commerce?
Well, yeah. Haul on that rope, Inspiration, because I have bills to pay! And we'll have none of that single $ stuff in the stats, either. Ramp up your game, o muse, or I'll be shopping for a replacement!
So, that's where we are at. If there is no 300th hub on the day after tomorrow, blame it on the muse, not me. If you see no 300th hub and you also see a homeless muse wandering around weeping piteously, well, connect the dots, if you catch my drift. I'm not here for my health, am I?
You gotta make it special you get a neat accolade for it !
But I'll get the accolade even if it's utter junk :-)
Besides, the accolade I want is the 100K icon and that's still a few months away :-(
mm i got the 100k icon and i felt an immediate letdown as soon as i saw another hubber with the 1M icon
Especially when it's someone with four hubs who just started last month.. :-)

I have recently been in hospital and I notice since I have been back my Author Score has dropped to 78. I am sorry to have to say that I have decided to leave Hubpages because I am going to concentrate on my poetry as I don't seem to have what it takes to get the hubpages traffic that others get as...

My passion for hubbing is going down each day. This may be due to the falling traffic and less earnings. So far I wrote 119 hubs and all are featured. I have nearly 400K hits too. I have been here since March 2012 and had a wonderful association and activities here as well. Can I...

I'm planning an advice hub where somehow or other people will ask advice - the advice will be wacky - I think it would be great if I could get one or two other hubbers to also contribute their advice (on the same questions) and so instead of it just being my wacky advice, it could be two or three...
