    Let's be real: Even though all of us aren't grammarians and students of the craft of writing and its many styles, HubPages provides us the opportunity to express ourselves, our point of view, and share in a community of those who enjoy doing so. And I don't think we'd take the time to return here as religiously as we do (you know you love being read!) if we didn't enjoy being heard. Well up until now what do you think you've said well and why? Whether for the writing or the point itself...which (one) hub?

      By far the one hub where it appears I've 'said it well' is one of my first, "The Rare INFJ Personality Type - a Profile". Why? The high traffic it attracts and the questions it inspires for comments on it are the measure I think tells me that the information it provides is said well. That is only part, though. The other part, maybe even more so, is the content is fairly unique for what can be found on the net. The content keeps drawing traffic, I think, more than my writing talent.

      Well I have quite a few successful hubs, but the one that probably means most to me is my Hub on Lupus - my wife has it and not enough people know about it - the more I can get the word out the better!

      I wrote a hub in the very beginning on making your girlfriend feel special. To this day it my best performing hub and my favorite to go back and look at!

      It's my question but it's still tough! I'd say my "finest" is one called "Waste of a Generation: How the Hip Hop Movement is Failing Society". It's one of those articles in your head for a long time, stewing with emotion. I think I expressed myself articulately and forcefully.

      And I think that everyone who has revealed their favorite and/or best trafficked hub in this thread is MAD!!

      We are in the middle of getting our work stolen right, left and centre and you make it so easy for the thieves!

      I have just spent the last 3 hours filing DMCA's, and I only checked out 2 hubs!

        I'm not telling anyone my high traffic hubs LOL the hub I mentioned barely gets any traffic - heck I'd love it if it was copied as it means the message about Lupus is getting around!

        IzzyM, at first you made me pause and wonder if I had been naive in asking this question. But I'm not sure I agree with you now. The question concerns a hub one has enjoyed the most, whether for the writing or content. I agree that revealing a highly trafficked article might not be wise. My point is, a thief is going to do what he does--period. That's to say, whether I reveal the hub I've enjoyed writing the most and it is stolen or one never reveals that hub and it's STILL stolen, it makes no difference to the thief! He has his own purposes with my material...every time I submit on HubPages.

          Yes I'm sorry, I know you did ask a normal straightforward question and you didn't mention high-trafficked hubs, but my experience here has taught me that people will confuse the hubs that gave them the most satisfaction with the hub they most enjoyed writing.

          And the hubs that gets the most traffic/brings in the most money is usually the one that gets mentioned.

          Sadly, among Hubpages forum members are many content thieves too.

          Not in the same way as those outside Hubpages, but if I were to write that I'd been getting loads of views on a hub about tortoises, for example, then loads of people would think to themselves "Oh, I didn't know that would a popular topic, I will write a hub about tortoises too"!

          Of course, everyone on HP has the same powerful platform, so they very quickly become direct competition to the original author.

          It is always better to keep quiet about those things, and this is just a reminder.

          Sorry again to spoil your thread. It was a nice idea smile

            Oh, not a problem. I understand your point: loud and clear might I add. You really did sober me up. I can appreciate a person like you who has been here longer than I and have more experience in areas that I don't. So thanks--but you're right: people will associate "finest" with most-trafficked...and the one that I've enjoyed most is definitely not my most trafficked!

      Hmmm...well, maybe you two didn't, but one or two did and it is best nipped in the bud now.

      Hi Ithabise,
      I consider my phlebotomy hub-sites to be the best hubs, because I get more views with them. I have about 4 phlebotomy hub-sites, these hubs are considered to be in the healthcare category. And many medical professional are so interested in knowing basics about; The Order of Draw, Mobile Phlebotomist, Venipuncture Steps, and Phlebotomy State License/Certification. I didn't know I would as many views as I do for these 4 hub-sites. I'm happy that I made article sites that will be very useful and informative.

      With tongue in cheek I will say this one -

      "Phantom Raspberry Blower of Old London Town' - who made this famous ?"

      Some days you just need something silly to make you laugh, and if anyone could make this one a money maker, well then, they are definitely better at SEO than I am.

      Neither of my two faves is a high traffic hub. One is the hub about Gullah cuisine that won me $1,000, and the other is "Sins of the Father," a short story.

      The one I wrote for a joke has the most amazing amount of views !  One I wrote and wasn't going to publish for a while is popular & one I wrote for a laugh gets hits from google everyday as it is on the front page for searching !

      My hub on notable people who died of cancer in 2010.  The list was so long, I was not able to finish it, but published it anyway as a work in progress.  It was a HubMob topic.  I didn't finish it on purpose, as a reminder that that list only included a handful of people who had died of cancer that year (more than 1,500 people die of cancer a day in America alone).  I can't really say if this hub is my finest, but it is the only hub that took me several days to research, and several more days to put together.  It is the one that touches me the most.
