of Hubpages? I tried to persuade my brother to join Hubs, but fell through. He said it wasn't gonna happen.
I am wondering how hubbers' families relate to Hubpages...
my kids know nothing about it. my husband HATES it...and thats all the familly I have that speaks to me...
I've gotten visits from my family members, who have been supportive but have not joined. I take the visits with great joy and move on.
My mom is my biggest fan. Still working on her to join...
I send links sometimes to my mom, who appreciates my work. But there is one other family member that I won't be "sharing" my hubs with, simply because of the negative comments she made. She really doesn't know anything about HubPages either.
I think I can work on my friends to join HP, rather than family members.
My sister, brother, some cousins and some friends joined HubPages to vote for my hub for HubNuggets a while back. Many of them say they are reading my hubs, but only my sister leaves comments on my hubs from time to time.
my oldest son signed up and started writing about a month after me, but he's not active in the forums at all. he saw the set up and liked it and writes mostly 'how to' articles. he also helps me understand some of the technical stuff and search engine traffic.
I email my articles to family members living elsewhere. they love to read my hubs and encourage me to keep writing wherever I can.
Finally I got my brother Tom to join. He is a very knowledgable person who will make a great contribution to HubPages. Why not give him a warm welcome and check out his hubs?

I haven't got any family members involved excep for my daughter aged 8, she likes helping me taking photos for the hubs. Once, to make her happy I did published her "travel article" and photos of her trip to Paris and another time she wrote a review of her favourite little princess's films which I also published here.
how adorable, that's really very sweet, those teachable moments!
I would love to read them, can you post the links, or give us the titles? (please)
"Films for little princesses" was her first one. Her second one was: "Paris seen by a 7 year old".
All the photos in the Paris hub were taken by her. I only corrected a few mistakes in her writing and translated a few sentences that she had written in French rather than Engish.
....and those are both nice hubs... I remember reading them when they were first published.
Princessa, how is the little sprout? (growing, growing no doubt) Love the new avatar.
Hope you and the gang are all well.
greetings to you all from Canada
We are all ok Zsuzsy, thanks for asking. The little Princess is growing into a fine little lady we are preparing a hub on bee keeping her new hobby. Meantime the little hooligan is going wilder by the day!!
All the best to you, and lots of love from France
Hi Princessa! I think it's great that your daughter is a published writer! At a young age too and that she takes this kind of interest. I found great satisfaction in having my hubs being read and hope she does too.
Thank you so much for sharing these with us. I loved reading them and it's so much fun to see Paris from a little princess' view!! Her pics are perfect. She did a great job of writing.
thanks for sharing, my first hub I read this morning!! a delight.
I have only showed or told my girlfriend. She was very excited to read my hubs. It made me feel good. I will tell my sister sometime soon, my other sister I don't think will to too interested.
Well, yeah. Sometimes people say they are interested in what you write.
My kids read my hubs, articles etc when they come hot off the press. Of the three not even one of them is interested in joining hubpages. They keep nagging me that instead I should work on my books. But I love it here so I stubbornly keep hubbing.
My wife is my biggest supporter. In fact she even has an account here but she uses it a lot less than me.
She does love hub pages but she is not a big fan of being on the internet.
From time to time she does check in but the funny thing is she will sit with me quite a bit and help me with my hubs.
My husband knows about HubPages and supports me on this. But he's not really much in writing so he's content with just reading what I show him or listening to me when I tell him what hubs I read.
None of my other family members are involved one way or another in HubPages. I've given them the link but I guess they're too busy to bother right now .
My son and boyfriend are very supportive, I am very lucky.
I am the "writer" in the family. I really haven't gotten anyone involved in hubpages. I look at it as one my hobbies and purely for me.
My family and friends think of writing as what I do (for work, for fun), but I don't think they think in terms of involving themselves in "whatever it is" I do. I'm among very "technical-centered" people who only have time to read what's related to their work. Then there are the people who "aren't all that into" the Internet for personal purposes and only use it to shop and e.mail. My grown kids do their own thing and write too, so I'm not sure they'll never join HubPages.
They all know where my writing is, and I know some have checked it out to some extent; but if they do more than just look take a quick look they haven't said so. I suspect they think I'll feel they were "horning in" on my personal business. They're kind of right. I like my writing to be "my thing" (not a particularly secret thing, but my thing nonetheless).
Then, just look at your writing as your thing. You have your own thing that's separate from your family.
And maybe when your kids are a little bit bigger they will be more interested.
Oh, I DO think of it as my own thing. Its why I am still here, despite the..."problems"..it may cause. My kids are just too little to read all that I write.They dont need htat type of information... They love to make books and stories and I encourage them to write whenever they want. Each one has a persoanal journal that I have never, and will never, read. They dont know about hubpages, cuz they are little sitll, is all.
You know, no writing I can remember has ever made me so sad as your hubs. But I sense there is hope and a yearning that things would return to happy on both sides. Does he ever read your hubs?
please dont be sad
no. he doesnt
it a long story.
This looks like your only outlet. It is important to lean on us. It will help get you through. You might feel you are in a dark place at the moment, but it won't always be like this. I don't know your situation, but some escapism is a good thing when life is hard.
There will be a time when circumstance will offer an opportunity for change. Just look for the signs, feel the inner strength and a smoother path will prevail.
Maybe I shouldn't add this, but my kids are all grown. I do suspect they've done a little reading but not mentioned it out of not wanting to "pry". Either way, though, one reason I write some things is that I imagine one day years from now my future grandchildren (or my own children) will get to know what their grandmother was like or what life was like "back in the late 1900's/early 2000's. (I'm going to leave instructions with my boxes of discs and printed stuff, "If you find this in the attic years after I'm not around any more, don't throw it out just because you don't want to read it. Please give it to one of the relatives who may be interested, or save it for your own grandchildren, who actually may be interested."
One of my sisters, my mom and my dad are fans of mine. My sister has written several hubs, but if focusing more on a book she is writing. My mom said she longs to write several hubs, but is also focused on a book. My brother is thrilled with the story I wrote about him, and has sent it to many of his friends.
I was raised with the attitude that I could do anything I put my mind to. The support is there for anything ethical I do. (And just for the record, I try to avoid the unethical)
My dad is just happy that I am writing online some. He's glad that after the journalism internship I'm keeping some degree of work online.
my kids say "run -- she's gonna make us read something else " and my husband has no choice because everything I write I read aloud to him first to see if it sounds ok,
my family has pretty much accepted my "eccentric" ways, but won't participate. Just wait till the book comes out and see what they think then HUH??
My partner is great, though he doesn't use the site. One of my sons has an account, which he uses sporadically. The rest of my family are unaware.
My family is unaware.... but it will not be surprising to them I am always writing, blogging, etc. My Ex knows but hasn't read anything and I haven't shared with my friends yet because, no reason just haven't.
My family is very supportive - one sister online, one not, son and daughter very proud of Mom, plus a few online friends drop in periodically, lol.
my wife has been getting more active...cannot be a good thing
