I am definately learning that there are a lot of helpful people here whether it be hands on or up front.
The thing is I do have a vision and I know it won't come over night and I think that gives me an advantage over some who think they will make big money in little time. Heck I havent even had an adsense click and truthfully my Uncle told me to only check my adsense once a week or I will drive myself crazy.
I completely agree with you that here you can learn a lot. I personaly do it everyday, because now, when it's summer holidays, I devote all my time (apart from time to job that I do at home - translations) to HubPages. I've made some conclusions and try to apply them in life. I also not a native speaker of English and it's a good way to improve my knowledge.
