      None for me Rod. I am a flower wilting on the vine at the moment.

      Checked your avatar, nice dog but what's going on with the coffee cup. Don't you have good beer in South Africa or was this an early morning photo shoot?

    Well, Vivi (my 12-lb bitch) doesn't have her own account, but she's been known to try to add her own touch to my hubs here and there.  Unfortunately, since the majority of hubbers don't speak dog, the words she types would look like gibberish to you, so I remove them before publication.

      Shame on you, deleting the fine writings of a well bred lady dog, maybe she would have a strong following out here.
      Thanks for the comment.

    My grandma is a hubber.  One of my younger cousins was doing it for awhile, but when he started leaving me spammy comments and his hubs were lame, I convinced him to stop until he wants to take it seriously.

    My Husband is on as Hubbie. He doesn't have an avatar and I haven't convinced him to write his own Hubs yet. Who would get the computer? But he is very supportive and I appreciate it.

      that's funny. I have two laptops and two desktops, and a 10 meg/sec connection so it wouldn't be an issue in my family, the irony is that since I'm a bachelor I don't have more than myself and my roomate who doesn't use the computer at all anyway, but everyone in my family are online working just in different places.

      I talk to my dad constantly- he's at home disabled- through hubpages, email, yahoo

      I talk to my mom- usually at work (sac PD transcription) usually through emails

      I talk to my little brother and older brother through emails and yahoo... we seem to be connected 24/7 when you include the "instinct" or iphone type cell phones they use (I'm just always at home working on a computer or laptop, they are the mobile ones.. In this new society its really bringing people together.. before all this I barely even talked to my family now we talk every day most of the day for one thing or another, I'm currently training my dad to write SEO charged hubs...

    I have 4 family members with accounts, but I'm the only one who really hubs, we are all also working the blog/article curcuit and SA together... It's nice to have the whole family in on something like this, in fact due to hubpages and the other projects I am in constant contact with my dad, whom I probably wouldnt other wise have talked to more than a few times a week, we do projects together, build sites, articles, blogs, make money, all that, we do it all from the internet (live in two seperate towns)...

    I think when your a writer and your wanting to earn your income from sites like Hubpages, SA, and all the rest it helps to get the rest of the family (your wife/husband, girlfriend kids) in on it so they understand how much work is involved. You can also work together to build things and not only get them done faster and with more girth, but with all the time you work on thigs together your sharing something special (creativity, time, experience) and it gives you more to talk about, to relate to, and so on, you also have time for family time more yet still make ALOT of money in the process... its a beautiful thing...

          Depends on the competativeness of the competitors, as well. It should never be more than friendly bantering, not so. But a score does need to be kept, or not?
