So, I started a list of lensmasters from Squidoo I couldn't find over here. I wanna keep in touch, you know. Many migrants to these green pastures had to change their user names for one reason or another. So tell us, just who were you over on Squidoo? I was Arachnea. Big change there.
I'm sure the HP guys wouldn't do anything to you. It's usually for spammers. Just thought I'd let you know about the rule It's gonna be hard for me to differentiate your accounts now lol. I'm used to your "original" Hubpages account.
As far as I understand it, you can use both your accounts in the forum, but not on the same post. That's what was told me by an experienced Hubber on another page. That way people aren't having "discussions" with theirselves.
Don't bother about it. It was bound to happen with so many people being forced to open a second account. As I've already mentioned, it's a rule because of spammers and probably supporting your statements via other accounts (that you own). Pick one and stick to it on the forums.
Thanks for that. I know I've accidentally made the multiple account mistake already on the forums and had no idea of this rule. Sigh. So much to try to learn so quickly, hope the HP admins will give us some time to adjust (I've been trying to use Firefox for this account, and Chrome for my original HP account, just because I'm lazy about switching back and forth, logging in and out for editing purposes. But I need to sticky-note myself to be careful about which one I use in the forums!)
You're right. So much to learn and get a handle on. The admins for HP are giving us a generous 4 months to get the lenses up to speed once they come over. I feel certain they'll understand our newbie-type mistakes as well. You're braver than I am. I would pull all my hair out trying to manage two accts on one site.
I'd be much happier if I didn't have to have two here! I wish there had been a way we could have had our Squidoo lenses imported into an already established HP account, but since that's not meant to be I guess a bunch of us are now stuck with multiple personalities
I was DrBilltellsexciting stories... glad to be done with that one! Those lenses (hopefully) will transfer to me here as DrBillSmithWriter. I also write here as both Homeplace Series and as DrBill-WmL-Smith. Actual author name is my full name William Leverne Smith for my complete "The Homeplace Saga" stories. Great idea it get a list. I was on Squidoo several years... many I've seen transferring I never saw there... small world, filled with many people, it seems... ;-)
I was holisticwriter on Squidoo and now I am using my real name, Terri Carr, per Hubpages recommendation.
I haven't figured out much of anything with HubPages yet. I have so many things I want to do and I guess I am waffling about whether or not any rev share site is worth it.
It does seem that HubPages gets more google traffic than Squidoo was getting though. So that makes me think I should stay active. However, I was not able to activate the ad program for my account. Can anyone direct me to the most straightforward help route?
I HATE, HATE, HATE figuring out tech issues. I know, I know, hating gets you no where. :-)
Thanks all for listening. I am glad there are so many friends on HubPages!!! That is one HUGE plus. I should think of that more often.
I was poetvix on Squidoo and on HP. With the move, I'm now Rhonda Lytle on HP too. I'm not happy at all about that by the way. While I'm not saying it's anyone's problem but mine, it bothers me to be forced to change a name I've used for over four years online just so my stuff can come over here when I already had over 70 articles here.
Susan52 on Squidoo is now SusanDeppner on hubpages. I have an old Susan52 account here, too, which I've done little to nothing with over several years, but it's still earned a bit of money along the way.
"Amalgamating accounts," Brenda and others, is a great idea. I'm with you on that. Time will tell.
I was also Desertdarlene at Squidoo. However, my Squidoo account will be transferring to Shorebirdie on HubPages. I have 1 hub on this account and may put my HubPages created content under Desertdarlene, but keep the Squidoo stuff under Shorebirdie.
I was dwelburn on Squidoo -same as here. But I only had 6 lenses and I already have similar articles on here, so I just deleted them all. Shame really. There is one I intend to put on here though in a couple of weeks when it has completely disappeared and won't come up as duplicate content.
I was balanceby design at Squidoo, now balancebydesign4u her at Hubpages. I forgot I had an old account here on hubpages as balancebydesign, so it wouldn't let me have that name. I don't think I ever wrote anything on Hubpages. I'm so sad about Squidoo but hoping I can make the transfer and start writing again.
I was and still am, ArtByLinda. I also have lhoxie here that I had opened before the news of the big move. What a good idea, nice to keep in touch with those we have known for so many years. Thank you.
Sorry, I will try again. My name on HubPages is MariannesWhims. I transferred from Squidoo where it was 1angelsbestkeptsecrets. My cat was rubbing against my screen and stepped across the keyboard a minute ago. That's why the above post was abruptly ended.
Hi All,Just wanted to give a heads up that I carefully prepared and edited 10 of my hubs, as per the instructions then applied for Adsense and I was soundly rejected the next day. I don't pretend to be the greatest...
Is is ok to change to a pen name on your account? I have articles on niche, not sure if it changes anything as far as that goes. Just making sure it does not throw the proverbial "wrench in the works'' Hope...
OK, so it's probably too soon to tell, but along with getting a higher percentage of my views from Google searches, it looks a bit like my Amazon sales have increased both in number and amount since we switched from...
According to Paul Deeds' forum post, transfers of articles on Squidoo are beginning today. Has anyone had their account transferred yet? If so, how did it go?http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/123836? …...
Big news today, Hubbers! Over the next several weeks, HubPages will be acquiring key content from Squidoo. Please be sure to read Paul Edmondson's blog post and our recently published FAQ (or Squidoo's blog post and...
I'm very timid when it comes to change if the change is not one of my own choosing, even if it is good change. Moving to HubPages was an upsetting experience for me, mainly because I felt the place we moved from...
