      Welcome to the club! My only advice to you is to find your own niche and to write from the  heart. Best of luck to you. I'm glad you found us. Hubpages is truly the Terra Nova of content farms.

      Welcome to all new Hubbers! This is a great community, you can learn a lot every day! When I first joined, not so long ago, I spent hours reading up the material at the Learning Center, it is really good, also the FAQ goes into a lot of details. This effort on my part has really helped me achieve better results!  This is good advice for you!

      Welcome to HubPages Paul. My best advice, after 9 months and 97 hubs is this. Review the Learning Center, especially as it relates to creating good hubs. It will save you time and aggravation of publishing stuff that you will then want to change. Most important - use google keyword tool to find good searchable words for your titles. Also - using photo and video capsules. Also - Break up your text into capsules, not one long text  box. Best of luck!

      Welcome to HubPages! The first thing I did when I arrived at HubPaes was to visit the Learning Center every day until I read through all of the training material. Once you understand the ins and outs of HubPages you will come to truly appreciate and enjoy your time here. And, in my opinion, if you stay out of the intensely spirited religious and political forums you will enjoy your time even more.

    Welcome!  My suggestion/advice or whatever you want to call it is write,write and write some more.  Be true to yourself - read everything -answer alot.  Think harder!  Write again.  Edit.  Rewrite.  Practice.  Learn your strengths and weaknesses in writing.  Enjoy HubPages.  If you are open to other's views, perspectives, criticisms, negativity you'll be fine.  If not learn to accept people for who they are and their thoughts and move on.

    Welcome! I'm a bit new, too. It's scary at first 'cause there are a lot of rude people on the internet but, for some reason, not here. People are really helpful and honest, especially to newbies.

    I would say don't lose yourself in what you think other people may want. Just be you and let the words go straight from your heart onto "paper". smile

    Hi Paul,

    I'm newish--I started a year and a half ago, then lapsed, then returned.  Here's what I learned in my absence. 

    I wish I had never went away! 

    Having written for four online sites now, hubpages is, for me, not only the one I get the best results from, but it is also the one that is the most user friendly.  It's easy to navigate and my fellow hubbers are genuinely warm and helpful.  I am sure there are some disgruntled folks somewhere, but then again, the disgruntled are always everywhere.  But the majority here have been welcoming, helpful, and respectful.  I found other sites a bit cold, having already established their cliques and "in" crowds.  They weren't mean, but they weren't driving the welcome wagon around either.  Writers seem a little more self-confident here which, IMHO, allows for more kindness and generosity toward others.

    Two, I would say that patience is the main key here--that and doing as someone already said and finding your niche and passion.  When you write about what you love, it really comes through in your hubs. 

    Three, asking for help is always a great idea.  I don't know how much help I can be personally since I'm just returning, but if I can help, I will.  If you already have a niche, you might want to check out others writing in that section, introduce yourself and follow them.  They might be able to help you out.

    Welcome, welcome, welcome!

    Hi, Paul, welcome!

    I'm still a relative newbie myself, but I agree with checking out the Learning Center for lots of great tips on how to use the various capsules and services available. Also, don't be afraid to spread your writing through various social networking sites like twitter, facebook and tumblr.

    Good luck, and enjoy yourself!

    Welcome to the hubbing community!

    Some tips?  Write original content, keep it simple, engage in the forums, keep a positive attitude, leave comments, answer comments, contribute to questions/answers, become active writing in the Weekly Topic Inspiration, don't focus on your hubber score, don't focus on your earnings (they will come in time), don't get discouraged (this takes time), study SEO for better traffic rankings and

    ENJOY yourself here. 

    Again, welcome!  smile

    A big welcome to you and much luck in your travels throughout Hub Community.  Just be yourself, write what you love to write, relax and get comfy.  Read as often as possible...both the "learning center" and hubs, by the thousands of great writers here.  You will find everyone, friendly helpful and engaging.  Never hesitate to ask questions.  We were all "new" once and remember and understand.
    Happy to have you!!!
