Yes it is I, Cagsil, a.k.a. Raymond Choiniere and I've received a request which I am going to do it.
Okay, first things first- I've been asked if I would do a 2012 Edition of my Women Writers In HubPages Community Hubs. Now, I didn't do it in 2011 and that was due to other factors.
However, I am considering taking up the task. The last time I did this, it was brought out on Valentine's Day and was a tribute to the Women who participated and supported HubPages Community. At the time, there were approximately 200 participants in the forum community and that made the hub a great success.
But, with the decreased numbers of people in the forums presently, I'm not sure it would match or live up the expectations of the previous two hubs. I'm willing to try to get enough people to participate. The previous version had originally 94 Women who took part and those Hubs are down to approximately 86 Women because some people are no longer here.
So with that said- if you would like to participate in the 2012 version, then I will need your permission and assistance.
(a) I will need an actual real picture of you. (b) I will need a profile(preferably one that doesn't match your present profile). The object of the hub is to create uniqueness, something different than what they would find on your profile. Without it, it takes the flavor away from the hub.
Now, I have an email account already setup for this to be done, so all you have to do is send the picture and written profile to the email address given: email@example.com
What I need to know from you now is whether or not you want to take part?
If so, then post to the forum letting me know and then put together what is needed. I will pull your profile link from your posting here in the forums.
Thank you for your time.
P.S. If you want to review how the other two hubs were done, then go to my profile and find hubs: Women Writers In HubPages Community and Women Writers In HubPages Community- Part Deux.
How very sweet of you to invite me to participate. I teach through the week but will write something up this weekend. I am very 'limited' with tech (as far as sending you a pic, so you 'teach' me and I will!) Now, would you also like me to make a couple other forum comments, as I do not generally make this a practice?
I need a real picture of you. If you have one, then you should be able to put it into an email. If you're not sure how to do that? Then go to your email account, you should have a command that allows you to "insert" or "attach" a picture. If you "insert" a picture into the email, it's fine. If you have a picture of yourself on your computer in a computer file, then you can locate where on your computer the is located, then click on "attach" file while in your email, when you are prompted/asked by the computer, to find the file, go directly to where it's located, click on the file itself and it should "attach" the file to the email.
If you have a picture on Facebook, then let me know and I'll pull the picture myself. And, you're welcome.
Thank you for taking part.
P.S. You only needed to make the post I am replying to because I needed a link to your profile page. If you need more help with the email, let me know.
Great idea, and I'm in. Working on some freelance work right now, and will get back to you this evening. Do you have a word limit? I tend to get carried away wordy. Thanks! Can we get the hook out and get rid of the Greek One? Unless he considers himself "one of the girls" and not the Alpha Male he insists he is. Ho-Ho-Ho.
Hey Ray, Have you ever thought of commenting briefly on each of the bios, of course doing only some wouldn't be fair, and you may only know some, but it would be interesting to have a comment to each...stating "your" thoughts??
Count me in! How fun! HubPages is just full of surprises that first year here. I am guessing by your earlier comment that I would have time to put this in a hub luv hub that I plan on putting out in 1-1/2 weeks to try to get more women's attention. Thanks for all that you do for everyone here on hubpages.
I'd love to participate...I'm always up for trying something new. Of course I have pictures but I'm not sure what you're looking for in the bio...more personal, more amusing, honest, dramatic? Give me hint.
Hi, Well,I will look for a better photo this weekend. I put my fishing photo on my profile, hoping no one who look at it, I never like to be in the spotlight. And when I joined I did not know it would be a such a great community where I actually would talk to other people online. So, I don't mind joining all these great ladies, I am proud to be associated with them in this hub. Thanks, Bobbi
It may just be a personal thing - but it gives me the creeps when men ogle photos of women and vice versa. I know, I know. but still.
and a big part of why I like the online community is becuz there is a certain anonymity and your words AREN'T judged by what you look like - and then somebody has to spoil it by attaching a REAL PICTURE of you! just sayin'
Nope, I'm not joking. What you're doing, especially since you've shown your interest in pics of beautiful women, is rather sexist. But I've stated my opinion before. Also, last time you did this I looked at the hub and found it really difficult to wade through a long list of some of the women of HubPages who happened to have seen your posts in the forums. I really don't get the value of it at all.
Hey Jean, it doesn't matter whether or not you post to the forums. There are many who didn't get to participate in the first two because it was mostly about those women who supported the community through the forums.
This one isn't about that. It's just about Women who write here. Thank you.
OK thanks, I'll try. I always hate pics of myself. I close my eyes. When I published my book, my poor son had to spend all day trying to take "sneak" pics of me when I didn't realize it and close my eyes. There must be something around.
In Cagsil's defense, if it were sexist, I doubt that many women would participate. (Yet, he's on his 3rd round.) Yes, Ray does have hubs about sexy women. However, he hasn't once asked for a "sexy" photo to use in his upcoming hub. Just sayin'...
hey there ray, would be interested in one of the women who might lock horns with you ocasionaly?..... realy,... i dont considder us so far apart n thinking as perhaps we are in aproach,.... but if the offer stands,... then i suppose i could grab a less than flattering but realstic pict and slap together 3 short paragraphs.
I'm not particularly worried about the length of the bio Habee. I mean going to 2000-3000 words is a bit much? But, most won't be more than 500-700 maximum. Besides, if it's too long and messes with the format(fluid nature) of the hub, then I'll shorten it myself.
Thank you btw. I'm very happy you decided to take part in this one too.
I'm Mrs.Ewbie, a good writer and part time plumber. My best piece got voted for a "Nearly Good" award, although it didn't win. I have three accolades and once thought I had a piece published, but when I looked it was written by someone else. I am Taurus and would like to meet an attractive man with his own car.
