    I'm having a terrible time figuring out what I'm doing and think I've gotten into something that is way over my head. Please help direct me to someone here at the HUB Site that can help me disconnect my HUB page. I would be greatly appreciative of any help and assistance.

    Thank you.

      We are in the same situation. If you got a time to drop by on my profile. You will know I am like a 5 years old kid that I don't know what to do. For 3 days now, I'm staying most of my time in front of my computer to read everything. Where I do found out, most of the people here are really a great writer. I am thinking is this the right place for me?

    Coffee, the following link may be helpful: http://hubpages.com/faq/

    Are you wanting to write on the site but you're confused with 'how to' etc? If you need help, all you have to do is ask - we don't bite smile

    Hi Frog,

    Thank you for the link. It is much appreciated. I am stuck between whether or not to end my account here or not.

    I have many questions and feel so computer stupid that I almmost shouldn't be using this web site.

    After viewing numerous and very wonderful Hub Pages here I'm in awe how talented so many people are talented in various ways. There are so many unique Hubs and very different types of writing styles. It is very interesting to read the many Hubs here.

    Seeing the many Hubs I'm lost trying to figure out my own. I'll post when I have time to ask questions if I decide to stay here to find more information out on how to operate the Hub page and it's functions. smile 

    Again, thank you!

    Best regards.

      It looks to me like you've written the intended content of your hub as a comment.  That's probably preventing it from being published, since we don't count the words in a comment toward the minimum length for a hub.

      What you want to do instead is, edit your hub from here, and then add or edit a "text capsule" and place what you've written in the comment into the text capsule.  If you're having trouble with that, I can do it for you for the hub that you have.

      You can also learn more about capsules and the hubtool in the HubPages Guide.  It's pretty easy to use once you get the hang of it.

      If you do decide to close your account, just contact us here and we'll take care of it for you.

      Don't leave!
      It is daunting at first, I know...its hard!
      But soon enough you realise you've cracked it and you have found your inner writer.
      Sometimes it just needs time to marinate-sink in

      Atleast make friends in the forums, that mgiht help or use frums for topical hub inspiration....Like Cags said don't run in fear....Attack! big_smile

    Don't leave. We are all new at some time. There is plenty of help here, though, so if you have a question ask in the forum, and you should get an answer.  Read the FAQ that FD gave you the link for, and read the guide.

    Just dive in and learn and when you are ready make a hub.  There is a forum (Extreme Hub Makeover) where you can post your link to your hub and ask other hubbers for help and critique.  Now get in there, coffeegirl! smile

    I'm only one piece of advice. Do not run away for fear. Attack it head on by learning everything you can. Work at your own pace and don't feel pressured to publish.

    All you need to do is publish your thoughts, ideas and feelings or knowledge. I've managed to publish many different articles, not to mention, my poem which I use to fear would be unacceptable. But, after publishing them here at HubPages, I got a warm welcome for the community and supportive help to push forward.

    Please, don't make a rash decision based on confusion or fear. It will be your fall back position for the rest of your life. smile

    Please stay and try to learn. Many of Us can help. smile

    @coffeegirl - stick with it. I found it all quite diffcult at first, honest. But it does get easier with practice. And never mind the writing styles of others - focus on your own style.

    And write about something you know about. I mean ... one of my first hubs was a right load of nonsense about a Dragon. Utter rubbish. But I still wrote and published it smile

    If you need help - ask. You never know what may come of your sticking around. And if you need a topic or two to start with, email me.

    @paul - very helpful and I'm sure that will help smile

    And see coffeegirl, hubbers are stepping up to help you!

    I wouldn't quit if i were you,.. if you stick around just for a minute you'll find hubbers to be a warm and helping community of people always willing to offer help and tips.  A lot of us that are new second guesses our writing, especially after reading others that is very good. After awhile you'll gain confidence and look on the brightside, your writing will only improve, its not like your writing can get any worse right.

    Don't delete your account, stay around, read, learn, practice and then publish when you feel ready.  It's an incredibly helpful community and quite rewarding in the long run.  You can work at it at your own pace, hours, days, months even.  You'll know when you are ready.

    Hi, Coffeegirl.

    The Frog is wise smile

    It can be a little overwhelming, at first, but you will soon pick it up.

    We have seen many nervous new writers blossom into great talents - stick with it and I am sure that you will thrive.

    If you need any help, there are plenty of folks willing to lend a hand. smile

    Do you think we all just started writing great hubs  right after we signed on for Hubpages? Noooo..we just kept writing because we enjoyed it, and then we all got addicted to Hubpages smile  The more you write the better you get.  I have seen a big difference in my writing over the past two years and it keeps improving. If you enjoy it  stick with it.. If you need help.. just ask!

        What they said - froggy and Cags have wise words for you, dragons notwithstanding wink (teasing, froggy - I love dragons too, but how far you have come since then!) We all needed help when we first started, and none of us did it on our own. Welcome to Hub Pages! I look forward to seeing your writing once you get your feet under you. big_smile
