You know the feeling. You've just spent hours creating your new hub - but then you need to get it out into the world. The easiest method is to promote it somehow on the forums, but that's equivalent to shoving your way through Oxford Street on a Saturday afternoon just before Christmas!
It's a crush, and unless you're wearing a brightly coloured hat, you won't get noticed.
But, hey, you've spent time and effort on the venture, so are you going to just sit back and wait for all those views and favourable comments which you know you deserve?
There are methods of course to promote your hub. Apart from the forums you can bombard fellow hubbers by joining their fan clubs (some are bound to reciprocate and check you out); you can spend thirty minutes thinking about all the key words which may miraculously attract attention on search engines, Link your little gem to a blog, promote it on similar sites or other forums, or digg it, twitter it, facebook it, etc etc blah blah...
By time you've done all this and sitting down in the same chair for so long, the Hubpiles will be painful - or as the rest of us desperate Hubites call them "Huborrhoids".
Huborrhoids can be quite painful. Technically they refer to inflamed blood vessels in the rectum developed from extensive Hub activity, to the extent that anything spent in lengthy periods in a squatting positing, depending on the height of your chair, produces flatus but unsubstantial gas leading to constipation and discomfort.
Of course, there are more comfortable places to sit. Like me, at the time of writing this nonsense, I am reclined on a hammock swaying between tropical palm trees caressing my notepad (well, that's what I call it!), and lounging bitter and twisted thinking of something to write.
So don't despair dear hearts, I was going to make a hub about this, but decided to stick it here just to annoy you all.
Is there a cream for it? Whatever the application I hope it is cool and soothing.
I'll be careful of Huborrhoids, I'm already racked with stiffness in the shoulders slaving over a Hot Hub (I hope) :-)
Mine (Huborrhoids) has so swollen that i can't even sit upright

Hey,I just finished a hub on mortgage applications. It's a subject I know a bit about, but I don't have nearly as much of an online presence in the subject of finances as I do in other areas (e.g. my last hub on...
