So Long, Josh - a haiku
Josh left the building
No long, sad goodbyes from him
Just “see ya later!”
Do you think Josh should return to HubPages and continue on his writing path?
A Little About Josh:
Sometimes there comes a moment in a hubber’s career at HubPages where they have to take a little breather; either by choice or by force. Maybe an emergency or a need to spend a little more time with friends and family draws them away. Life has a habit of doing that; reminding us what’s important and what we can and can’t live without. Whatever the case, it’s a good time to step back and reflect on what brings you here.
I was browsing through Josh’s collection of 78 hubs and glanced at how long he’d been writing here; about 2 months, but it feels a lot longer than that. Wow. He wrote 78 hubs in 2 months. That works out to about 1.28 hubs a day. I have a heck of a time spitting out a hub a week let alone one a day. No wonder the kid needs a break. His hands are probably permanently cramped in the typer’s claw!
A little about his accomplishments: He won the 2012 Hubbie Award for Funniest Hub with his classic “50 Rules That Would Be Included If Life Had An Instruction Manual.” He was prolific at penning limericks, among which “How To Lose A Girl (Limerick)” seemed to be his favorite. His hub on how to make a PB&J entitled “How I Won The Recipe Contest of June 2012” was an instant hit, but unfortunately did not win him the recipe contest, sorry Josh. My personal favorite was “LAW ABIDING CITIZEN: A REVIEW” because I really enjoyed the movie and he hounded me endlessly until I forced myself to sit still long enough to read his review.
If you know anything about Josh, you know he is a bundle of energy. He makes hyperactive Chihuahuas tired. No matter what time of the day or night I logged into HubPages, Josh would be there, writing away, reading fellow hubber’s hubs, leaving insightful and helpful comments, and offering help and support to any and all that needed it. Your dedication and loyalty were and are much appreciated, kid.
I hope this isn’t goodbye, but more of a much needed vacation for Josh. Even God took a day off, it’s about time you did too. Until you find your way back….happy trails, Josh!
