Hello Again

    Some of you might remember me. I've decided that I'd like to write at HP again.

    Yes, I did leave because I believed my product-hub style no longer belonged here. (And that was the right decision.) But I also left because I didn't have a paypal account and therefore couldn't participate in the HPads program. Well that's been resolved.

    I have been watching the changes at HP and have been itching to get back into writing here. The past year has been a hard one personally - or I would have returned sooner. I had a perforated colon in November 2011, a temporary ostomy, an operation to reverse the ostomy in July 2012, complications including several drug resistant infections, a 3-week hospital stay, and months of antibiotics and rest. I've pretty much gotten my zip back and I thought this was the perfect time to start writing here again.

    I'll be focusing on local real estate and development issues. My hubs will be much different than you're used to, but for those who remember me, I always believed in trying new things.

    Oh my name is spelled a little differently, but it's a new account - but the picture is the same!

    So that's that in a nutshell.

      Good to see you again. Hope your troubles are over. You have been through a lot, but every experience is a hub waiting to happen.  Stay well, and write!

      I really do believe that HP has a lot of good things going for it. It y has the most professional design of any of the shared writing platforms. I had truly forgotten how easy it is to write a Hub.

    Nell!  Good to see you back in the forums and writing once more.  I was always sorry to see you leave and have wondered how you were doing.

    Sorry to hear of your problems, but glad to hear you have them under control. 

    Now get to work, girl, and get some hubs out.  You were always an inspiration to me with your writing abilities and will be interested to see what "changes" you are making.

      OMG you grew up! Actually I've been checking out your stuff, because Paul E. said you were doing well - which didn't surprise me at all! Glad you're still hanging around!

      I've read all the comments from Paul E about what is working. So I'm going for long and in depth  informational hubs about stuff I know really well.

        Yep - all grown up now.  Some cruel, cruel (but well intentioned) hubbers finally convinced me that I needed to branch out a little, open a facebook page, get into G+ etc. and that my favorite picture just didn't fit my primary niche.  Or secondary, or tertiary, or any of them.  Still can't find myself on a forum page, though! smile 

        Had to run over and look at your only offering yet - yes, it's quite a change from the Nell I used to read.  Looks very good - the old Nell is indeed back.  Changed and with a new look, but back in force.
