500 Amazing and Interesting Places, Ideas and People Who Have Done Cool Things

Updated on October 6, 2010

Celebrating 500 Hubs!!

This article marks the 500th hub that I am publishing through this site. I really enjoy writing for HubPages. I've made some great connections with people through this site. There's a great community here and I've been able to find a lot of useful information from the hubs that other writers have written. All of this makes me want to celebrate the writing of Hub #500. To do that, I'd like to share links to some of the "top 10 lists" that I've written for HubPages over the past three years. Combined together, these lists offer information about 500 different people, places, things or ideas that I found to be amazing, inspiring or just plain interesting. Of all of the hubs that I have written, these were the ones that I had the most fun researching and writing. I hope that you enjoy them as well!
