What is your best hub(s)?

    Contrary to my expectations the hubs that my readers picked the most are not the ones that I preferred. The ones that required more researches, more analysis and critical thinking like "the not so quiet American", "the absolute monarch" and "And if..." did not score as much as I thought they would . Are you experiencing the same disappoint? With which ones?

    Impetuously, my fingers typed out "duh, the hubs bringing home the bacon are undoubtedly my best".  I apologize for their rudeness.  They often get cheeky when I'm trolling HubPages with the intention of inflating my page views and ego (probably in that order).

    I absolutely sympathize over your feelings of disappointment when a particular hub doesn't hit the proverbial home run you were certain was on deck.  I'm still distraught to find that my efforts to stave off the Formicidae horde hasn't found an audience. My definition of "best", however, likely differs from your own.   

    From your post, I presume that you consider your "best hubs" to be the polar opposite of the ones I'm guilty of dabbling with.  In other words, you value provocative thought and thorough exploration over shallow humor and popular culture.  I respect that, even though my typical writing routine glosses over the research phase more often than naught in some misguided attempt to provoke a knee-jerk reaction from the reader.

    I'm slightly easier to please, I suspect.  Since I've convinced myself that writing to seduce Google with offerings of how-tos and top-tens isn't my calling in life, my criteria for my "best" stuff boils down to this:

    1) Would I read it again without the persuasion of a blunt instrument hovering near my gluteus maximus?


    2) Do I think you, the reader, would prefer being on the receiving end of that blunt instrument over reading my hub?

    Google (and my wallet) would strongly disagree with me, of course.

    Why do Black Men Leave?
    Vote for President! if you can
    God and Lucifer and the war on Heaven

    I can't tell which is the best.  I left my heart in all of them.
