I couldn't find a specific place to post a hello to everyone, so I decided to put it here. I hope it isn't in the wrong spot. I also couldn't find anything that said I shouldn't introduce myself in this manner. If I was wrong in the way I went about this, I apologize.
My name is Katrina and I just got started a few days handful of days ago. I have always liked writing but never wanted to go through the red tape associated with writing a book. Glad I found this site, I like the idea of the freedom to write whatever I want. Plus the tools to help me improve over all.
Not sure if I should add anything else, but if anyone has any questions, feel free to ask.
Welcome to HubPages, Katrina! Wish you great times ahead. You would definitely enjoy writing here. The HP community is wonderful and very supportive and each day you learn something new. I think that's the best part. And yes, what an interesting way to say 'Hello' and meet other friendly hubbers! All the best!
I felt that as well...Since then I have had pieces used by CNBC, FOXBusiness, Reuters, and several other major networks, as well as sparking the interest of some very famous investors and CEOs to the point they started tracking me through social media. I thought these were HUUUUGE accomplishments until I learned that pretty much any writer who writes about a company or product a lot tends to catch that company's interest lol. I am most likely one of thousands of writers they track...When I look at it like this I am definitely much more humble than the day my first piece was published LOL
I agree! There are many writers here who have much more skill and experience than I do. I am loving the reading and research material I have found here! More Hubbers should be in the limelight of the press!
Welcome along Katrina! There are some really great writers and talented folk here at HP; haven't visited for a while, but the community here is superb and very supportive. I certainly wish you well in your new endeavours.
Weclome, Katrina. My tip would be to remember that if you are writing under your real name (and being tracked liked Joshua), your opinion on everything will be in full view of all who choose to research you.
So if, for instance, you decide to apply for a job in the future, HP will be just one of the places they find out about you.
With that in mind, I trust you'll enjoy being on HP.
Yes this is my real name, I have no problem telling people my opinions. Truth is I don't really want to be apart of the hustle and bustle, I really want to spend my life hiking from place to place. This site gives me the chance to do that and write without all the stress involved. Thank you for the welcome and the warning.
Thank you, and to you as well. I'm really glad to have found it, kinda surprised it took me this long. Just didn't know to look for this kind of of thing. The people here have been very welcoming and supportive already, and I appreciate it.
Welcome to HubPages Katrina, you will meet many friends here. Someone has already given you the link to the Learning Center but feel free to ask questions anytime that you need information which you cannot find. Other writers, even the staff, are glad to assist.
Welcome! I think you will like what you find here. There is literally something for everyone. If I may offer a few tips that have helped me: write out ideas you have for hubs, write about what you are interested in and passionate about, and try to use as many of your own pictures as possible.
If you ever need help with anything on this site don't hesitate to ask for help. You will get the answers you are looking for, and most people are more than happy to explain how certain things work (like the whole getting paid thing). Best of luck, and have fun!
Thank you, I do already have a note book with over 3 pages of ideas written, picking which one I want to write about and also feel confident about (if I'm ready for it or if I don't feel I can do the topic justice) is what I'm working on now.
Hi I'm new to hubpages. I just wanted to say hello and how much I am enjoying being apart of Hubpages. I used to love to write stories a long time ago. Hubpages has gotten me back doing something I like. Thank you
Hi everybody,I am new to HubPages and so excited about it! I am looking forward to getting to know some hubbers here and learning a thing or two. I also can't wait to share what I know as well. Cheers...
Just want to say hello and introduce myself. I'm new and just published my first hub. I think I will recognize some of the writers here from Squidoo and Bubblews.I would love to write more, but I have a cat on my lap...
