Thanks to My Fellow Hubbers

Writing on Hub-Pages, is Awesome!

There is so much to say, it is hard to know where to begin?

The start of my life on hubpages began September 2009! I had taken a computer class from a man, teaching us how to make money through blogging and forum sites. There was allot of information covered and I took lots of notes. Things sounded so exciting, I thought I'd be able to establish a residual income in a short amount of time. Well, I have to say that didn't happen. So many responsibilities, trials and challenges of life...it was all I could do to get through each day. Back to the journal I went, writing about things as I was going through them...it was very theraputic! Somehow last year, when I was searching for ways to start writing on the net...I stumbled upon hubpages?

Just before this I had typed out a few things that had been heavy on my heart, dealing with the rejections of life! These writings I felt were my voice, I wanted to speak out and connect with others. To relate to someones heart, and soothe their pain! Just by relating to an area, that was real in my life. At the time trying to figure out, how to get some healing with the hurts in my own life...as I mentioned above. I found journaling, then sketching my feelings on paper, was a good outlet for me.

You know there comes a time, a person tries to figure things out...why this happened? Why didn't my life turn out different? Looking at where you are today and how you got there? It was when I was searching for answers, life became even more difficult to understand. Writing, drawing and trying to explain my feelings to someone, just wasn't the same; unless it was someone who had been where I was at, and they too, could feel my pain. They gave me compassion, and I feel inner healing...for taking the time to be a part of my life! Some crossed my path for a brief moment in time yet...they made a difference! So I, wanted to make a difference in others, to help ease their pain, to show I too can relate:)

The words on the paper, began being transferred onto hubpages. My first hubs were I feel, not so good...as far as my writing capabilities. Like many of you when you first start, it is hard to put your feelings, experiences, trials of life for the whole world to see? So many years I wrote out my dreams, my hurts, and prayers...sketching the idea and concepts to come back to. More for me to just, be able to look back and see where I was, and where I came to now:)

My first hupages writings were:

"Should I Take The Bible Literal?" http://hubpages.com/hub/heart4theword

"Dreams Our Real To Me!" http://hubpages.com/hub/Tru-Memories

http://hubpages.com/hub/Choosing-a-Career-or-Occupation

These first 3 hubs, were the start of my voice here on hubpages, really nothing to write home about. In fact, I was used to not sharing what was written in my journal. I felt for along time the things I had pictured, wrote or experienced were for my benefit only. Realization hit me hard one day! That there are times, we need to share with others what we've been shown. What has surfaced, that you kept buried for so long. Such healing and relief came, of sharing your soul:) It did usually have to start with strangers, after-all they don't know you from Adam, even if you can relate to them:)

Writing on hubpages was no longer about money, but about having a voice! To my surprise there were actually people who wanted to listen to what I had to say...and to what was on my heart! Heavy or Light, it didn't seem to matter. So many of you, I can't begin to list...gave me such encouragement, and the comments...that you spoke to my heart! I so appreciate you all and the friendship we have developed here! Hubpages, has become a community...I just love reading what you have to say! My fellow hubbers, you fill my heart too, with your words, and for this I thank you...from the bottom of my heart:)

The next months hubpages written were:

http://hubpages.com/hub/Spiritually-Frustrated

http://hubpages.com/hub/Money-Personalities

http://hubpages.com/hub/The-Supernatural

Are You a Bag Lady, is the second most viewed hub out of this set of hubs, even though I didn't get many comments on this page. It was still a fun and catchy title, to write a hub about! http://hubpages.com/hub/Are-You-a-Bag-Lady

This next hub page, was I'd say...one of the hardest ones for me to publish! I have thought many times about changing the wording to make it more respectful to my parents...yet these were real feelings, I was dealing with when this was written. (It was a writing in my journal, prior to writing on hubpages.) I was thankful for skye2day's compassion and because of Lamme I decided maybe I should leave this writing...just how it came out! "Dreaming of a Father"

http://hubpages.com/hub/Take-Time-To-Pray-and-Rest

http://hubpages.com/hub/What-Happens-When-The-Darkness-of-Dawn-Crosses-With-The-Sunset-Of-Light

http://hubpages.com/hub/Fall-is-here-and-Winter-is-upon-us

Would you believe...that this page is the second, most viewed hubpage I have listed! It runs neck in neck with "Bumper Cars"...http://hubpages.com/hub/Holiday-Table-Decorating

New Hubbers:

I encourage you to write what's on your heart, what is the most pressing issues on your mind. For the most part this community watches what they say and how they say it...as far as I can tell. There are a few, who seem to just want to banter. In my time here on hubpages, it is those who want to argue allot of times, who get their feelings hurt, or hurt others. Then, next thing you know someone has left hubpages...by pulling off their writings. (Of course some do stay and stand their ground...because they like to argue.) This makes me sad, when people get hurt, because people are real here and have real feelings. Those who pull their writings, are missed in this community...and the friendship they built with others. I think we all have to be careful how we say things, even when we are speaking out...about something we believe.

When I first started writing, I was welcomed by Gicky Soriano! He was my hero at first on hubpages, I liked his writings and he always commented on my hubpages:) Also he had a high writing score, that I wanted to follow and hoped one day, I could accomplish? James A Watkins, he was up on his score too, so I did feel privileged, when he would respond to my hubpages. When a persons writing score gets down, it is not because they are not a good writer. It is because they haven't had time to spend on hubpages. Commenting on others sites, writing new hubpages, and modifying your own...all help your score! Thank you both for making me feel welcomed here:)

A sweet lady, christalluna 1124...talked to me allot here on hubpages, in my first days. I so appreciated her, sharing from her heart!

Feed page:I do like the feed page, sometimes I find new people to follow, and writings to read on the feed page! It gives a gist of what the hub is about, by reading peoples recent comments:) Hubpages is so great about, always changing and adding new features to make things not seem so hum drum around here:) Thank you Hub-Pages, for the freedom to write and the abilities you make so easy for us to add video, pictures, polls, etc...You are Awesome!

Again I am thankful too, for this outlet of communication, and the friends I have made here. It would take pages and pages, to write the list of people who follow my writings and comment on them...and those I read that I enjoy so much. Keep on Hubbing...you hubber fans out there:)

Heart, it was nice to read this, late though it was. I know what you mean about HP being the kind of place where you can share deep, meaningful things. It is amazing for that, and it is so cool that others on here can relate. I am so glad you found HP because I have been very blessed by some of your writings and want to look at more of them, mentioned in this hub.

Heart, I'm back! What a lovely tribute you write here for yourself, about your struggles in hubbing. It's paying off by the number of your commenters alone. Their voices speak of the truth- you're fun to read and share a voice with.

I want to get the jump on your many extradordinary hubber friends who are blessed with your writings as I am and want to welcome you to year two on the HubPages.What a wonderful journey.I want to share just a few thoughts that you have covered in great detail in your wonderful hub.You keep me writing even if I write only a few lines that make sense only to me(or so I thought)until you read and left a wonderful comment.The simple warm feeling I get from deep inside my heart that you created.Changing my views by finding what I want to say and searching for a way that I can say it the best I can.Joining other hubbers from all walks of life and sharing the same dream.To make someones life better and leaving with the satisfaction that you have all changed my life forever.Realizing each day is more precious than the one before because now we have less days left to live and find new ways to enjoy this wonderful world.Waking up down and turning it around into a smile then a grin just using my lips and my chin.When my heart beats faster just because I typed something I am so proud of.Making improvements along the way so other hubbers know I have tried my best.Trying to understand how others write by watching them and learning as we go.Most of all leaving with a happy face to return again with more enthusiasm and direction.Then ending with a Thank you when I run out of things to say.

Thank you so much for sharing this Hub. I agree that HubPages has held an important place in my life. I started four years ago and was encouraged with every comment I got. Then I started to get these messages from people that really touched me - I once got a message from a soldier in Iraq who told me that he saw my Hub about how much I love Christmas, and said that it made him feel more at home while he was overseas; it still brings tears to my eyes thinking about it.

I really liked this hub. I know exactly where you are coming from. My story is so similar, however, I do have to break away and not touch hubpages for a few days sometimes.

I am grateful for the ability to talk to people of vastly different mindsets. It helps me to appreciate and understand many things conversing with the community here.

Good hub!!

Thank for sharing your experience with HubPages. Great point about writing what is pressing on your mind! In the middle of the Hubbalicious contest I broke my refrigerator and couldn't experiment on any more recipes. So I wrote about Non-Refrigerated Lunch Ideas, and it got more traffic than any of my other food hubs!
