My 200 hubs ... An experience

Updated on March 2, 2013

I just published my 200th hub,.... Wow.

To many this would be an accomplishment, to some it is just a small thing.

I just want to relate that I have only been on the hubs writing for about a year now and in fact, I was notified by paypal that I had accumulated $52.45 in funds for all my writing on these hubpages.

Although I am a published writer and poet, I have felt more pride by recieving written words from my friends here on Hubpages than any monetary compensation from any where else.

I do not write for the money that I recieve from hubpages but for the words that I recieve from my peers here. I do not follow the rules on Hubpages trying to keep my hub score up and trying to publish at least two hubs a day or any of the other myriad of rules they try to impose but I write because I am passionate about my work and the comments about my work.. mean more to me than any monetary rewards I could recieve.

I know that I have lost a few friends since I started writing because of my passion to express myself and because I do stay true to my myself and the passion I write with. I apologize to any who feel that I have hurt your feelings or your stance on any issues that you feel passionate about .

That being said, I just want to thank all the followers I have and tell them to keep writing and posting the beautiful and imaginary and passionate words that come from their hearts and memories , your words have help-ed to inspire my own work.. Again Thank You all.

      Michael, way to be true to yourself. I respect that more than anything else. During my walk this morning, I came across a sign that read: The opposite of courage isn't cowardice. It's conformity.

      I like thinking and doing things outside the box, and you're a man cut from similar cloth.

      Congratulations on your 200, and best wishes for continued success with the next pair of centuries!

      Aloha, my friend!

      Hello Michael... Congratulations my friend it is all down to you and a great talent. I appreciate a person with passion and would sooner be upset by the content of your work rather than get you to change a single word. Be true to yourself my friend it is the only way and I would hope that any true friend could see this and agree with it. As for goolgle well done to get anything out of these guys I have been waiting to become active for almost 2 years. LOL...

      Hope to see another 200 hubs in the future..... Well done Mate..... Chris

      @prairieprincess, thank you for the comment.

      @ deborah , thank you for the visit ..

      I was sent an e mail by paypal to notify me that they had accumulated this money from hubpages. and they offered me several options as to how to get my money but i just choose a check. as far as i understand you must accumulate at least 50.00 dollars before they will pay you.

      thanks for the visit .

      tricia , thank you for comment, you have reached a milestone yourself and it is very hard to write as you know, but to be a writer is a lonely thing we writers take on as our own heart tries to express the feeling s we have inside. Keep writing my friend.. if not for anyone in particular but for yourself and always stay true to your own voice.

      Congratulations with this accomplishment. I still have a long way to go to even reach the 100 hubs milestone. I also received my first Hubpages payment this month which was great. For many people this is just a small amount of money, but to me it is an acknowledgement of my writing here.
