The Twelve Days of Hubbing

I joined HubPages seven months ago with the hopes that it would motivate me to start writing again and also to make a little extra money on the side. It has accomplished one of the two goals, it got me writing again but I am finding that making money takes a lot of learning, patience and hard work. Which is fine because what I did not realize was that HubPages would be such a great online community. I have met some wonderful people through this site and I will be forever grateful for their online presence.

Besides being a wonderful community of writers I have also learned so much about marketing my hubs and my blog. I have included some of the links I have gotten this sort of information from.

All of this has prompted me to write the following which can be sung to the tune of The Twelve Days of Christmas.

My Groups

Some of the groups I have my hubs organized into include:

Books and Movies, Special Needs Children, North Dakota, Politics and Social Issues, Medical, and Christianity.

I loved this hub! Very clever and my feelings about hubpages are the same. I've found the money not to be the motivator to write since it is sparce but I love the people. I've learned so much also. Merry Christmas to you.
