Thanks for your generous idea sunforged - I have been a couple of times to this forum and have read a number of the links put up such hubbers as gamer girl, Em, Benson & others, and have really enjoyed their writing ..... so here is one of mine that just doesn't seem to have created interest...
Good call dude. I just read Benson's and it's great. Gonna go read Gamer's, Lgali's and Trish's now too.
I think if I was gonna pimp one of mine, I'd say my Bee Hub is one that I really liked and it just didn't get read. I giggle at the pictures even though I did them myself, which I know is bad, you're not supposed to laugh at your own jokes, but, well. Ok, maybe it's just me, but bees walking around with their guts pulled out their butts is funny. /sigh Maybe I just need therapy.
" Now, I know what you're probably thinking right now; you're thinking to yourself, "I notice this author is just assuming that the Bee God is a ‘he.'" Well, to that I have only one response: Who else would create a society wherein it was almost entirely women, the women do all the work, and the role of men is simply to mate as often as they can with the most prestigious woman of the bunch?
Yeah, that's what I thought. Don't ever question me again!"
Thank you for adding this, i dont know if i would have ever found it otherwise.
It looks like you've got quite the menagerie! Tell me, are rabbits a lot of work?
We found a nest of 4 wild baby bunnies a couple of springs back - actually, my husband weedwhacked down a flower bed and found their nest. It left them completely exposed, and I couldn't bear the thought of them being picked off before their mom returned to them. So, foolishly, I loaded them into a cat carrier and took them inside. They were too little to eat solids, at first, so I went and bought kitten formula and a dropper to feed them with. Within a couple of weeks they were eating solids, were chubby, and seemed quite healthy. Then one morning when I went downstairs to feed them, two were cold and stiff. I bawled all the way to the nearby nature center where I let the other two go. It was very traumatic - I'm such a sucker.
We've got a pair of cats in addition to the dogs. Jack, our male Vizsla, just got home last night from having spent the last several months with his trainer, so our little family has been fully reunited.
My house rabbit is very little work at all, rabbits are naturally very clean and come litter trained, they will eat every electrical cord in your house though, so rabbit proofing is necessary. "Pigglefoot" has lived with me for 4 years, she comes when called (sometimes, like a cat) she dances when happy (really!) she can open doors and can jump on the bed, she will attack full grown dogs because she is territorial, but leaves my little peke/cocker mix alone (because hes little!) she also stomps like thumper during thunder storms, I plan on writing lots about my house rabbit and rabbit keeping in the future.
My rabbits are never caged and I really dont suggest getting one if that is your plan, they love and need to run around - less work and damage and smell than the average cat -similar temperament
Im sorry to hear about your kit experience, I have also had to raise a bunch by hand using a dropper and milk, for no apparent reason 2 out of the 7 died, most likely from weakened immune systems since they never had mothers milk, it was rough. But its sounds like things would have been worse off for them without your intervention as they are very susceptible to the elements and predators when little
It sounds like you did everything right, they have big litters because they are so fragile
Really!? I love my cats but, really, they're a pain in the ass. Actually, it's just the litterbox that I can't stand. I find myself cleaning it two or three times a day just because it grosses me out so much. My cats are in and out of my bed all the time, and it freaks me out to crawl into bed and find litter in the sheets.
I did a lot of reading on the 'Net about the bunnies because I was so worried about them. My husband thought it was funny that I got so worked up about some little wild animals... I had to put their cage up on a high shelf where the dogs and cats couldn't get to it, and I insisted on taking them outside to play in the grass every day. I did read that they were very fragile and that most that were handraised did not survive, but I was still heartbroken to lose the two.
Here's one of mine with miserable stats. It relates to my ever-failing quest to free women from the tyranny of purses. It will never happen, and I guess I effectively excluded most male readers from the get go.
I've got a few favorites, but one that I very much enjoyed writing that hasn't scored all that well and hasn't gotten all that many views is one I did on my favorite movie of all time (with the exception of all five dozen Bing Crosby movies.) The movie in question is "Gunga Din," and the hub is titled "Realism in Movies: Oxymoron."
This is a great idea, Josh. I have just read the first (really beautiful, Gamer girl. I'm moved) and will read all that are listed here later this evening. I suspect by then there will be quite a reading list!
This is a great idea to list our favorite hubs. I was really moved to tears reading gamergirl's hub. My favorite hub would be my recent unexpected trip to california with lots of wonderful memories. http://hubpages.com/hub/My-California-Trip
My favorite hub that I wrote is the Sexy Hot Hubbers hub. I had so much fun doing it, it was more work than any other hub I've done, and it's not a top earner by any means, but I got to know alot of the Hubbers better here, and it was SO much fun!!!
What a hard question, and thought provoking. Having gone back and looked at all the hubs I have written there are a few that I thought were my better ones that didn't get the viewings I had hoped for. They are:
thanks for sharing... i thought it was a fun read...im surprised its not a moneymaker...as it has ads for drug stores and credit reports - but i guess your problem is its actually worth reading so people wont be interested in clicking out via the ads
I happen to have one left over from my cousin Myrtle's wedding. It's tradition for us to fill our old socks with rice then go at the newlyweds like they're pinatas (spell freaking check please!). You know...flog em upside the head as the walk out of the church.
sorry i won't as it betrays my fanning principle. no i'm not grouchy, why should i? being left in the cold is fine by me any day. besides the smoke FROM the bonfire is intoxicating. An i'm having a good time. I just found out that Mary, Peter and Paul's singing friend, is a Joseph!
Pest my hats off to you that is the bomb! Now let's go look for Eric and I'm totally ditching toady for him - he's a bum therefore way coooler! whaddayasay! i have me a sprinkler and it's pink too with Hello Kitty design, cool huh?
Okay hubbers. I read and read and then I read some more to pick hubs for my blog. Some of you know about the blog I have built for Hubbers. I read a blog, do a quick review on it and then post the Hub to...
Heres the thought:If you have been writing on HubPages for a while Im sure you have a few favorite hubs of your own that just havent got the traffic you wanted, the score is never high enough, the comments poor or...
Post them in here. Please don't post them in other threads, or start multiple threads for individual hubs, as it will quickly fill up the sub-forum and make it harder for people to offer advice when help is being...
