Hubpages and Facebook made me cool!

Progress Towards Coolness? Perhaps-But Probably Not...

Never in my life...


Never in my life have I been considered cool. Never in my life have I had people that are interested in what I say, think or how I view the world. Most people would look at me, but see over me to someone else. For much of my life I was nobody worth remembering, seeing, knowing or listening too. Over my years as being a socially unequipped human being, I was often cursed with saying the wrong thing at the wrong moment. The irony of this is; I am a writer. Not just on Hub Pages, although what I write here on Hub Pages is what I find the most enjoyment writing, I do have a daytime job.


I am a Writer...


I am a writer who specializes in creating website content to be Search Engine friendly, creates and brands companies and businesses through their websites, blogs and Social Media resources. I love what I do, and love that I am able to help businesses build their company profiles to benefit them both on and offline.


The most ironic thing about being a person that never has, and still often does not say the right thing, I am a girl that can almost always write the right thing to get any simple or complex thought and idea across.


I am a Photographer...


Along with writing websites, marketing materials and getting people and businesses known online, I am a Photographer. Most of the photography that I publish within my hubs is photography that I have taken. Hubpages and Facebook fave me a platform to begin re-acquainting myself with my long lost love of picture taken.

Truth is, before I started to write here, I had set down my camera. I am not sure if I was lost to any kind of creativity or just gave up on my dreams before HubPages. When I began to publish poems and other writings, I found that when I published a new hub, I had just as many people comment on my photography as I did on the hubs, thus inspiring me to create Picture Pagez.

Now Picture Pagez was originally Picture Pages, but when purchasing a domain, picturepages.com was taken- and picturepagez.com was available... The name Picture Pagez took my writing ( Hub PAGES ) and love of PICTURE taking and combined them into PICTURE PAGEZ. Although Picture Pagez is still new and growing, it is only here today due to the success and encouragement I found mostly on Hub Pages and supporters I learned I have through sharing my work on Facebook.

Picture Pagez may not be my ticket to coolness, but it sure makes me feel better knowing that I am able to make my dreams come true, doing exactly what it is I love to do... Write- take Photos and Create!


Truth is... I have never been cool.


I often ask myself, and sometimes question myself, am I really any good? How is it possible that more than a baker’s dozen actually care what it is I have said? Truth is, I’ve never been cool, never been popular, and never even been the first pick at a dork match? How can a verbally retarded gal such as myself matter to anyone?


The answer is Technology…Technology has made me cool. That is right, technology has given me a voice and I suppose made me more interesting to listen to and hear, or shall I say the internet and Wi-Fi have made me cool. On Facebook I have over 400 friends and on Hub Pages I have around 1,500 Followers (Fans), and have been read almost 200,000 times. My Facebook Business Page, which promotes Picture Pagez (where I have joined together my writing and love for photography) is gaining Likes, and I am liking every minute of it! Although these numbers are not as impressive when compared to others on both sites, I am amazed that these kinds of numbers are associated with me as an individual and/or as a writer and/or a photographer.


Simply Me... For Me...That's All...

Is the world as crazy as I am?

Am I really cool or is the world just as crazy as I am? How is it possible that almost 2000 living, breathing people care to know what I am thinking, feeling, what I have experienced in life and how I have survived life for 30 years? I am almost amazed that I have had enough to say that has appealed to so many people.

I owe my new found coolness and awesomeness to Hub Pages and to Facebook….

Because without Hub Pages and Facebook, I can almost guarantee that still, no one would know or have a reason to remember my name. This is not a joke, for I know for a fact that my name has been forgotten for many years by acquaintances, by employers, and by school officials. I am also fairly sure that my parents have forgotten it once or twice, but that is beside the point.

I know I am forgettable due to some very unforgettable moments. In high school, I was not known by name by the school officials…I was simply known as the little girl with the saggy pants and flannel shirt (hey…it was the 90’s and grunge was in-I think?). In middle school, well in middle school I was definitely not cool. I still wore rhinestones on clothing then, and by rhinestones I mean, the rhinestones were a part of my ensemble and often included to compliment the puffy paint designs on my clothing. I don’t care who you are, puffy paint and rhinestones are not cool, and I had elementary school kids making fun of me.

There is a light... and I am in it.

here is the down low on my life...

If you are not one of my regular readers, let me fill you in on my life in a nut shell. I am a mother of two children (they are both 4 years old). I have experienced some not so fun situations in life, many of them self-created. For 12 years I was a walking and talking example of depression, addiction and hanging onto life by a single thread. I fed my pain in an effort to numb it with; drugs, alcohol and never following through with a single thing.

My kids saved my life and refocused me after years of walking in a haze. I have experienced abusive relationships, mental-physical-emotional, and I have survived them all. I am in the process of rebuilding relationships with my parents, which both they and I have done our best to destroy.

Two and a half years ago, I was not a happy girl. I was lonely, sad and still felt lost. I found Hub Pages-because of Hub Pages, I began to sort through my emotions, fears, regrets, pain and memories through my writing. Because of Hub Pages, I was able to obtain a Romance Column and later a Parenting Column for an online local News Source. Which then gave me experience and grounds to land a copy-writing position?

I started by professional writing career with a San Antonio Web Design Company, where I learned about websites, SEO, and business. I worked in this position for 2 years, when I then left and began working within the Social Media aspect of online marketing for another San Antonio company. I decided that I am more equipped to work as a contract writer and consultant, due to living an hour away from the closest town worth working in. I have learned more about an industry and more about myself in the past 2 and a half years, than I could have ever imaged. I have now started Picture Pagez which is a compilation between my photography (which I have 13 years experience), and my abilities as an online writer.

Today I am a much happier and focused girl. I don’t only see light at the end of a tunnel, but I am walking in it. I use my life as an example, not for a round of applause, not for sympathy, but as hope for others who have been or are in the place I spend years surviving. I am proof that things can and do change and that you never know what tomorrow may bring until you live it.

Survival is temporary; it is what we all must do until we begin living. So regardless of who you are or what you have been through things can change, look at me- I am cool (when I could have never imaged that being cool was ever a possibility for me).


and here I am today...
and here I am today... | Source

What has lead me to coolness

Taking each of my uncool situations, and there are hundreds of them I could give as an examples, along with suppressing my emotions for over 20 years is, I suppose what has lead me to coolness now.

After almost three years on HubPages, I have time and time again been able to earn and maintain a writer’s score of 100. I have over 185 hubs that reflect me as a person and my life as it has been experienced. I am proud to say that I finally feel Cool, not because of my 1500 followers on HubPages or 400 plus friends on Facebook, or noticing that a Pod Cast done by Hub Pages on May 20th 2011 was focused around a Hub which I wrote (which makes me feel, oh so special), I feel cool because of who I have become since publishing here. I have sorted through pain, fears and self doubt to uncover someone I thought was lost many years ago. I have met people and developed friendships through Hubpages, that I lean on and confide in when times get tough and days are dark. Life is still not perfect, and I still have a bad day now and again, but I enjoy living, and I enjoy writing, and I am glad that I am able to do it here.

Now back to my cool factor... If it wasn't for a broken toe- I would totally be jumping up and down in a not so cool manner, so as a token of appreciation for Hub Pages and for Facebook, I dedicate this hub- and I appreciate the awesomeness each has given me!

THANK YOU HUBPAGES AND THANK YOU FACEBOOK-FOR MAKING ME APPEAR TO BE COOL AND AWESOME! WHO KNEW IT WOULD EVER BE POSSIBLE?

Bravo to you! And I agree, HubPages is a fantastic place to find your voice and your confidence. Congratulations on the success you've made of your writing, so far...

Lady Wordsmith- isn't that amazing? we all change and become cool in our own little way... I think the difference ends up being how comfortable we are in our own skin. Thanks for the comment :)


Lady Wordsmith profile image

Lady Wordsmith 5 years ago from Lancaster, UK

I agree, that's what it's all about, the whole of life and everything! Finding happiness in so many small ways leads to fulfillment, and being comfortable in our own skin, as you say - and when we have that, I think that we just appear to be more cool, even if we haven't actually changed in appearance.


H.C Porter profile image

H.C Porter 5 years ago from Lone Star State Author

Lady Wordsmith- When I see someone I havent seen since High School (13years), and they comment on my appearance (which has changed slightly) I reply with, I am still the same ol' me, corky-dorky and how they use to put it- lame :) I am just happy with my attributes these days. Change is what we wish it to be-nothing more/nor less...thanks for returning to the hub :)

Hey H.C. I hope you are well and it sounds like you are. Your new profile pic is great. I agree with you about technology, although it can backfire too...yesterday I saw an old friend/acquaintance who is a real fun person in a band, dj etc. but I couldn't remember her name! In virtual world I have become a great commenter and "friend" to many more than in the real world but it's a lot to keep up with and sometimes I blunder through it.

Good on you with your content writing gig sounds like a blast. Keep up the good work HC.

Yes sir, I am doing well...working hard :) I know what you mean...The virtual world gives freedom of expression without the backlash of reality of when we are not liked...it is a ngreat thing for some of us "not so cool people", but can also hold us back from connecting in the real world. I hope that new baby is doing well (i guess new is no longer the word-since it has been almost a year, right?) nice to hear from you sir, thanks so much for your comment

Ha, sir, that's a good one, although I fear I maybe old enough to be your dad ;) My son is almost a year you are correct, and my daughter is well too. I have trouble believing someone as pretty and smart as yourself was ever uncool but perhaps perhaps. Hope you are enjoying your Tejas sol!

Ben, lol... Perhaps I will one day post up some pictures of my past and you can see how Uncool I actually was...lol, but thank you for the comment. As for old enough to be my father, lol, not quite... I am unfortunately beyond the 20 something crowd...but that is okay- it takes time to have intelligence blossom :) Glad to hear your family is doing well...and I am sure your daughter has taken to being a big sister rather well :) Thanks Ben, for the comment and for the smiles... :)

michael ely 5 years ago from Scotland

Wow H.C, It just goes to show that things aren't always as they seem. When i first started reading your hubs i thought you were particularly cool, even when judged against other really cool people on here. Your writing, your photographs even how you interacted with people in your comments showed somebody who really was so cool and had everything seemingly under control. As you say a lot of that comes with being able to write rather than speak certain things and also through the years people's confidence tends to grow. Glad i found this hub by you. Another interesting and revealing piece of writing by you. And you know what. I probably think you're even cooler now than when i started reading this.

Anyway keep growing, getting more cool and more confident as you go on your journey.

All the best. Michael.

Like they said, your already cool but you don't know it..

Yeah i know that thinking, when you choose what to think...or what you choose to be, then that will be the person you created..

And hey lady, your writing is so cool . I Actually like the flow of it. I stumbled upon this when i was hopping somewhere.

what you need is self-appreciation and trust within yourself. I am that, and everybody seems attached with me...

Anyway, your okay! Just stay away from your stinking thinking...pretty lady..

Voted up and beautiful!!

Oh and awesome too.

You are as real as it gets and I will follow you anywhere. If you aren't cool then I'm hopeless, but still we have found this place where we are accepted for who we are. That, for me at least, is a miracle. I never expected to be accepted here; I never expected to find a place where people would reach out to me.

You exemplify everything I love about HubPages and I thank you so much for your friendship.
