Six months ago, around 30 Hubbers embarked on an epic online writing journey, forging a path on HubPages that would shape the experience of many Hubbers to come. This team of Hubbers, which goes by the name Scribe Tribe, started out as a secret beta team and helped us refine what became the HubPages Apprenticeship Program. As the first Apprenticeship team, the Scribe Tribe taught us as much as we taught them!
Today those who made it through the rigorous Apprenticeship Program for six months in a row are graduating, and we would like to celebrate their significant achievement! Though it is already no small feat to publish a minimum of eight high quality Hubs every month (while also going through lessons and helping out fellow team members), yet many Scribe Tribe team members consistently exceeded the program’s requirements, going above and beyond with truly stellar Hubs and even themed challenges to rally the group and make the online writing process all the more creative and fun.
Allow me to present those who crossed the finish line:
- Doc Sonic
- Daisy Mariposa
- Tara McNerney
- Teresa Coppens
Bravie to this year’s first graduating class! Collectively, all Hubbers who started in the Scribe Tribe team have created over 1,150 Hubs, and the graduates alone have published over 950. Considering that these Hubs are all longer than 500 words, contain only original and legally used images, and incorporate the best practices shared in our Learning Center (and more), they shall continue to do quite well over the coming months and years, helping these Hubbers gain more readership, coverage, and yes, ad earnings. 😉
Also congratulations to the two Hubbers in this team who won Hubbie Awards:
- 2012 Hubbie for Most Informative Hub: cclitgirl
- 2012 Hubbie for Most Interesting Hub: Daisy Mariposa
