    Where is the thread to introduce yourself to the HP community?  I heard a lot of good things about the people here.  I think saying "Hola" would be a good way to get started here.

    You've come to the right place..and welcome, Whimsical Chair.

    Now that you've had a couple of weeks to look around, you should give some thought to writing a few articles for us to read.

    By the way, it's not a popularity contest here, or a social network.  No one's going to 'follow' you, unless they really like what you write.  We're primarily concerned with writing interesting stuff that hopefully informs, or makes people think..or at least amuse.  The hub comments and forums are a way of connecting with other Hubbers for support and amusement.

    I think you'll find most of us here are very supportive, and quite often hilarious and irreverent (especially in the forums...see The Sandpit).

      I haven't really been looking around.  I'm already writing for two other websites, and this seems like a good place to try to make some money via Amazon.

      Calling the place The Sandpit doesn't seem like a good idea.  There's nothing pleasant about a sandpit.  What wrong with calling it a quicksand??
      How about Flaming Hot Place??

        The Sandpit is a forum thread for games and such. You'll find all sorts of different things in the Sandpit forums. It might create the HubPages addiction that many hub writers suffer from presently.

        Welcome to HubPages! I do hope you enjoy your time here. smile big_smile

          and the snadpit is exempt from hubtivity so you can write stuff there and people who see your profile cant stalk you there...

          and it makes me think of playground places. pretty fitting for a forum name if you ask me.

          welcome to HP Whimsical Chair, nice to meet you, happy hubbing!!

    Hey WC!
    This is a wonderful place, I was just commenting on how one can ask (anything) for advice and get it here!

    Welcome smile

    things will get going-and an avatar really helps-smile

      Thank you for the greeting schoolgirlforreal

      I was thinking what to put for my avatar.  I want something that I created or a photo that I shoot.  Do you have any ideas?

    WC,

    Welcome to Hub Pages, and enjoy your stay.

    Please follow the rules,,,,if you can find them.

    Forget about hub scores, no one really knows what they are or where they come from.

    Keep personal attacks to a minimum, as the banishments and the beatings will continue until moral improves.

    Oh, one other thing….. you are now obligated to read all the hubs authored by those that have responded to your forum post….starting of course, with mine.

    And again Welcome!

      Thank you readytoescape for the reading. 

      Thank you for the homework.  Now I have a lot of reading to do.  I'll give a thumbs up to each and every one of them.

        You better read some of them before hitting just hitting the thumbs up buttom. Blind approval got us all into this mess.
