That’s right, HubPages is now four years old! It is strange to think that only four years back, the site had only just launched- especially because today we’re ranked 58th on Quantcast with 1.2 million daily global visits. Not bad, eh?
The most impressive thing about the past four years, at least in my opinion, has been the amazing community of writers that has sprung up around the site. Over its short existence, HubPages has become an impromptu family, a place to sharpen writing skills, an online article-writing academy, and a vast pool of information for millions of people. Who knew that HubPages could be so many things to so many different people!
To honor this momentous milestone, the HubPages team got together yesterday to celebrate!
Paul Edmondson gave a speech, we sang in honor of HubPages and ate delicious cake…
… and Mellie wanted to try a piece too!
Celebration is taking place online as well. From a festive forum thread to well-wishers sharing kind words on our Facebook page, we’re feeling quite appreciated, and want to share the love with you too. We’ve got some really amazing surprises in store this September, October, and November already- and more is being planned every moment! Keep a sharp eye out- this past four years may have been great, but you ain’t seen nothin‘ yet!

Happy Birthday to Hubpages. And now you are four years old and can eat cake – what I am sure of is that that beautiful, thick, yummy icing is just going to get even better as it is shared out with all the hubbers who really appreciate the efforts of the dedicated hub team – a team who keeps putting into production their great ideas, their communication processes, plus the ongoing socialisation of that lone animal – the writer, and all this while keeping up to date and on top of such changelings as seo methods, keyword research and rss….cheers and thanks for your great efforts…from a fan of hubpages.

Wow, congrats guys. Stay funky!
When I had no clue how a computer worked, much less had any kind of internet savvy, there was hubpages. A community of writers who support one another and are giving of their time and expertise. Thank you guys. I remember going through all the newbie mistakes. Spamming people, getting upset when people don’t wanna do what i want to do, etc. People were very patient and helpful. Thanks guys! Oh yeah, I am planning on coming out to SF soon, don’t be surprised if I walk through the door at any time.
Happy belated birthday. You wonderful people has done an enormous job with hubpages. It almost seems as if you gave us your birthday gift.

Congratulations my dear HubPages. Just 4th year, amazing!
I long to pay a live visit to HubPages in due time. Thank you guys, you’re wonderful.
A birthday offering
Happy Birthday Hubpages
your four years old it seems
In your short life you’ve offered us
a place to post our thoughts and dreams
You’ve built for us a forum
Where we can interact
Where we state opinions and comment
on other author’s fantasies and facts
You’ve offered us a free site
so we as writers can hone our skills
And reap the benefits and knowledge
From comments of our peers
You’ve opened doors for us to enter
Of new acquaintances and friends
Where we learn to work together
By messages and comments received and sent
There may be those among us
Though few as they may be
Those who instill hurtful comments
To inflict wounds that can run deep
We find it’s usually other writers
Against whose skill they can’t compete
They feel they must destroy another
And squelch the talent they can not beat.
But awareness of these people
Is soon spread through out Hubland
So they might be ignored an soon
Their page and comments all be banned.
Now I stand with grateful heart
Offering this tripe and simple poem
That I might express along with others
Appreciation for your forums
So happy birthday and congrats
On reaching this age of four
That your site may open new paths
And of birthdays you see many many more.
Happy bday to Hubpages. You have already experienced 4 years serving people. Great job! Continue with the nice job.
