Comments to Hubbers Like You

Updated on February 8, 2015
Source

In the old days when a new store owner earned their first dollar,

they would place it on the wall or under glass and give a holler.

Now things have changed, so when you check on your daily Hubber’s pay,

you get excited but can’t touch that buck to put on display.

You begin to count the photos you used and find something’s amiss.

So, you ponder — I’ve spent five to make one— but still this is bliss.

I’ve made friends, written hubs, and made comments to those who follow.

I’ve tried to be supportive and not hot under the collar.

Nevertheless, I’m proud to be a hubber and respect all around,

cause when I set-up for Hubbing, I know that I’m homeward bound.

And though I ‘m now poorer from a monetary point of view,

I feel richer, wiser and fortunate with hubbers like you.

      Insightful. It sounds like the view of many of the hubbers. Very cleverly written.

      Earning has so many different connotations to it. Earning friends is the one I like.

      This is wonderful! You've really captured well the excitement that most of us feel once we've earned that first dollar... and then that first five! And ten! (I'm still making my way up to the first $50 for my first payout... almost there! Haha)

      Hey D!

      Man, you're making your mark alright! You stated quite gracefully what so many of us have come to know. This is a pretty cool community of people. Often we are here just to express our gratitude for living the unique craft of hubbing!

      I personally am really glad history worked out the way it did. You got the experience and we got you!

      Very well done!

      Voted very up!

      Hello DFiduccia, I found a comment by you on teaches12345 hub and decided to come take a peek at your work.

      It is amazing to think we earn a buck for doing something we love. Though we wait a bit, that first check is exhilarating.

      Using your lyrical poetry to express your appreciation to your followers worked well. Hubpages is home to me too and I have met so many wonderful people here. Look forward to reading more from you.

      Voted up and Awesome!

      I don't care about the money side of H/P's and that's not because I have enough, I', like everyone else who got laid off of work. I like the comments because they help make my day.

      Vote up useful and interesting.

      This is very catchy and likable too. Yeah never give up focus on the money as it can be done, but most of all it’s the journey and the friendships along the way that will really make you richer and happier come that rainy day.

      I love Hubpages and you’re a true hubber all the way :)

      DF:

      I realize that you are currently taking a sabbatical from hubpages for awhile. But couldn't help coming across this real sweet poem of yours. So when you check back in on a future date, I hope you find my comment and Thumbs up vote, worth more than a thousand words and that first buck you ever made! Thanks again for sharing a great read through a fine piece of poetry. Best wishes from a fellow hubber and writer.

      Jlbowden
