This makes me think about whether or not hubski is actually as small as it used to be. Maybe it was just me, but I felt like back in the day almost anyone who posted something got a reaction from someone else.

Then again when I first started on hubski I was making all kinds of shit like art blog posts on an old fake account and the #vaguequestionsbypablo shit. Good times :)

Yea I think there's been a change in the frequency and kinds of interactions. Not bad necessarily.

I've always been shooting 30%, though. I feel like about one in three posts gets any feedback. And then one in three of those gets a rollicking discussion. There's no predicting what hubski bites.

Would you be able to explain the origin of #songsforpabs? Don't really understand the tag, like is that your playlist people add to or something?

I believe it was started by thenewgreen! I certainly took them as recommendations, especially out of respect for tng, but I think it just turned out to be one of many music tags like #vibesandjives, and #hiphophubski when there was a decent hip-hop head community here. Not to mention all the tags that I rarely took part in that involved hubski coming together to make original music! Lots of neat history in tags now that I think about it lol

Ah-ha! When I was scrolling through there I didn't see a post by you which got me confuzzled. Agreed on the last bit. :) Still a lot to learn over time.

Yeah, nowaypablo is right, I started it. Originally, they were songs that I had hoped that hubskiers of nwp's generation would listen to. I used pabs as sort of a poster boy for all the younger, kick ass hubskiers here. You know... it could have been called songsforgalens but I went with pabs. Both would have been apropos.

A TAG I MISS is #higgsy
