Hub of the Day… Finally!

Hub of the Day

My Hub of the Day Award. YAY!!!

I, finally, got Hub of the Day (HOTD)!! WOOHOO!!!! YAY!!! Four months in the apprenticeship program has really paid off! What a reward for all my hard work. You should have heard me when I saw my hub on the side of my Hubpages Feed Page!! I squealed!!! I was so happy, I’m still riding the high!! I was beginning to get a bit depressed and losing motivation for my writing on Hubpages because of the traffic losses recently (thanks Google). But this has renewed at least my motivation.

HOTD does wonders for your traffic, although it’s a shame it isn’t coming from Google. I’m sure it will start to slow down tomorrow, although my hub will be featured on the Hubpages Homepage for 9 days. I’m hoping all the popularity might increase my rank with Google. Notice I said hoping…

I’ve been writing for Hubpages since January of this year (2012) and had yet to get HOTD until today. Even my hubby got the Rising Star Award after only authoring two hubs!! Needless to say how jealous and ticked off I was. I’d put in all this effort, even applied for and got accepted to the apprenticeship, and my husband, the one who has no grammar skills whatsoever, gets Rising Star… Really?

Don’t get me wrong, I’m really proud of him, I was more mad at myself. I kept asking myself what I did wrong. Why wasn’t my work good enough? Although I refused to give up, I was getting to the point where my heart just wasn’t in it. I found myself writing for Knoji and Textbroker more, and ended up having to scramble to finish my 8 hubs for the month of October. This HOTD was one of those hubs. Go figure!

The Versatile Blogger Award – I WON! I WON! I WON!

My Versatile Blogger Award

I Won the Versatile Blogger Award!

I was recently honored by Julie DeNeen who awarded me (and several other bloggers) the Versatile Blogger Award! Julie has been a huge inspiration to me on this crazy freelance writing journey. Although, I haven’t really had a chance to tell her how much of an influence she really has had. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been ready to throw in the towel. Inevitably, Julie would post a new hub, or blog post and it would snap me back to reality.

I’m very honored and would like to say thank you Julie!! You’re too kind!!

So, I can choose up to 15 bloggers to give this award to; however, only one blogger I follow hasn’t already been nominated (Janine and Michelle beat me to it!). So without further ado:

I am giving the Versatile Blogger award to…
