    Just wanted to send out a big hello to all the great friends I made while writing with Squidoo. I look forward to meeting new Hubpages writers as well! I wonder if my friends are still writing here and how it has been for them? Merci, Susan- are you out there? I am going to start writing more again now that I have some free time. God bless,

    Hi, Renee, I remember you from Squidoo. I was Mia-Mia on Squidoo. I'm still missing Squidoo the way it was before it went so crazy that last year or so. I get far less traffic here, and haven't had a single sale since transferring over to HP. My two articles that were ranked pretty high on Squidoo, and had consistent sales, are ranked very, very low on HP, and have no sales. I like the absence of all the silliness of some of the Squidoo quests, but I miss knowing who was "liking" my articles. I miss the beautiful themes and backgrounds of Squidoo, compared to so much blank white space on the screen here, I also counters of likes, and social media shares. I haven't written nearly as much since being sent here. Just don't seem to have the heart for it as I once did.

    I hate to be such a downer, but I'm just feeling very frustrated right now. I am also writing on PersonaPaper, have one article on Seekyt, and have started my own blogs on WordPress, titled "In the Garden with Maria" and "Down Hibiscus Lane". Good luck to you here on HP.

      Hello Mia-Mia! So glad you messaged me! I too miss the fun layout of Squidoo, and the community and the uplifting each other up. I didn't make a ton over there, but I had so much fun! I am sorry to hear you aren't having the best experience either sad I wish you the best of luck on all your endeavors!!!

      So far it's been a little challenging, and less motivating than the fun SQUIDOO smile But I'm enjoying writing all the same. Have a wonderful day!

    Another former squid here. It takes a little getting used to the Hubpages layouts (all that white-space), but one you become adjusted to it it's fine. I kind of like the clean look of the hubs. Goodluck on your hubs!

    I was a Giant Squid as well as a HubPages writer, so now I have 2 HubPages accounts.  I have to keep adjusting as the rules for good hubs change, but that keeps my hubs fresh.  I do miss the fun challenges and the different clubs we had on Squidoo, though.

      It must be a little difficult keeping up with two accounts, but I bet you can manage! I too miss the challenges, and trophies, and the fun atmosphere that was Squidoo! Nice to see you again, have a blessed day!
