Back Among Friends.


But stuck in a dilemma.........

I am back among friends

reading all my old hubs

and the comments you left

soothe me but here's the rub.

I have so many new poems

and songs I could post,

but Hub pages demands

to be my only host.

I write songs that I send

to producers each week,

and poems for newspapers

for the income I seek.

My main media's online

it's the tool of my trade

but that use is forbidden

if I post a hub page.

I would have to shut down

many sites used for years

watching hundreds of freinds

and followers disappear.

If I write something stellar

posting it on Hub pages,

then it's stuck here forever

to languish for ages.

I write 3 poems a day

and four songs as well,

I can't deposit them just

in one place they won't sell

I've never made money

on my many works here,

I can't figure out Amazon

and the rest isn't too clear.

I'm a bit of a dinosaur

when it comes to things tech,

trying to set up accounts

makes me a nervous wreck.

So I guess I will have too

write additional poems

and songs between trying

to make my work known.

then post just those here,

back among my old friends

while hundreds of works

hold precious words I can't lend.

to the hub pages postings

which is really quite sad,

but I'll try to send you folks

some of the best that I have.

Consigning each one

to one place where they'll be

appreciated immensely

you've all been good to me.

But producers won't come here

they built sites for my songs,

they won't scroll through the hundreds,

the competion is strong.

And my poetry editors

just don't have the time

to go hunting down work

posted one place online.

All the readers who follow

my writing elsewhere

might chase down one link

they enjoy what I share.

I have links where all hubbers

could click on and find

the bulk of my musings

but would they have time??

And would it be right

to pull the focus away,

from these wondrous hub pages

what more can I say

It's a major dilemma,

for a writer like me,

I'm still working on answers

that I have yet to see.

But I thank all the faithful

here.... who've read what I've written,

your support is immense

and I am truly smitten.

I enjoyed coming and meeting you here

I am glad that you chose on to publish my dear

perhaps I can help find a solution for you

and think of something that you can do

better than keep it away from us all

perhaps you can remove the post from your wall

then send it in for the money you will make

and the best of both worlds will be yours to take...

:) hehe - that was fun - thanks...

Hey Mom's secret, HattieMattieMae and Always exploring. Thanks for the read, Just feeling the blues last night. I do like Mom's secret, Perhaps I can post a work for 30 days and then remove it and post it at the other 30 or sites. Not a bad idea, and it just might solve my problem.Thanks eversomuch~~~MFB III

Dear friend, I wish I had your problem. Your artistry with words is exquisite! They pour out of you with such eloquence and beauty.

My thoughts and words do not pour out so quickly as yours. Your creativeness is endless and I see that you must keep up with them or they will be lost.

May you always share your gift because you are unique and write like no one else I know.

God Bless you MFB!
