HubPages has made a great difference in my life and I would to know whether this community has made a great difference to anyone else's life as well.
It made me realize that you don't need to write something like "Lord of the Rings" to be an author, you just need to write something that people enjoy reading.
Most definitely, Hubpages has had a positive affect on my life. It is a place of learning and inspiration. I get super excited when I come face to face with raw talent, and am inspired by that talent. I find that here on Hubpages. I have found courage here, encouragement and positive feedback that has helped with confidence levels that involve all of life, not just writing. My thinking has reached new levels, expanding and imagining beyond my established limits...so Hubpages has helped me grow, and challenged me on many levels!
I am forever grateful!
It is a space where I think and expand my thoughts. In many ways it has helped me be a more reflective person. And I am thrilled and humbled when someone across the globe takes the time to comment on my hubs. I feel very priveleged. Thanks all.
Helped with my self confidence.
I still find it mind blowing to think someone half way across the world is reading something I wrote.
Hub pages gave me a chance..which I squandered...c'est la vie
It's been the best thing that I have found in a long time. I love having the opportunity to write and get feedback from readers
From an online marketeers point of view, shattered completely my understanding and beliefs of how this stuff operates (SEO, keyword research and use, copyright, styles of writing for your market, etc). But now I am bettered educated and have some experience and still learning what works well for me.
Also the fact that this place is international and everyone has so much to learn from and offer and also that those that made this place continue to make it so easy a site to use (and work towards continued improvements).
Agree with you Jase, I never knew that any of this SEO/keywords/backlinking stuff existed before I joined HubPages. I naively thought that if I wrote they would come!
So have learned a whole load of stuff and realise that there is far more still to learn
Fortunately, it is fairly addictive and I have a list of topics 27 pages long that I want to write hubs on!
27 pages of topics........... thats a heck of a list !
Addictive is the right word. You know you're a "hubaholic" when a friend mentions something, and the first thought that pops into your head is: "That would make an excellent hub!"
Yes I know what you mean leahlefler !!! Ha!
There is so much to learn and I'm glad that I am not the only one seeing as my computer knowledge was pretty near to Zero when I first came on here.
As for being addictive, yes I can definitly second that one.
Author Felicia Hinton , very helpful in many areas with building over a period of time, to my needs. Very helpful.
I haven't been here long enough to know how it can affect my life, but so far it looks great!
For me, the greatest reward from hubpages is the network of friends I have made. Some people are just like family to me. Helping people that have suffered greatly by just a kind word and being there for them in support is rewarding. People have helped me through hard times and supported me as well. In a way, hubpages is good therapy. Writing something that others can identify with or will touch their heart and have them appreciate it is a feeling that I have only experienced here. Like anything else, I have had some bad times with some, as well as treasured times. It has all been a healing and learning experience. I hope to have many more good times at hubpages and meet more friends.
Yes you are so right and it is definitly a two way process here on HP.
We all benefit so much from being members of this warm and caring community.
I have given, received, learnt and my confidence has grown since I joined everyone on here and I am so grateful !!!
Yes, I agree. We are a warm and loving, supportive community. I have grown to care deeply for the people here. You being one of them. A few of our friends need our support more than ever. Froggy213 had lost his 2 year old grandson to murder and then recently his wife passed away. He is a wonderful human being and is going through hell. Vocalcoach lost her son to cancer and he left 4 children behind that he was raising alone. She is grieving terribly. You know first hand her pain. Let's keep them all in our thoughts and prayers. Thank you.
Hi Lisa thanks for replying, life is so cruel isn't it!! I would not have believed a year ago just how caring a community this is and how close we have become to one another. I think that so many of us are on the same wavelength.
I think that many of us have had to endure hardship at one time or another and this is what makes us so compassionate and sincere.
I am also glad that I have found you as a friend too Lisa and the miles apart don't matter because we are only a few clicks away from each other.
Yes I will keep thinking about and praying for everyone who is suffering on here.
Take care Lisa my friend,
Yes, being part of the community is great.
As far as actually writing is concerned, all of the creative writing books tell you that, if you want to be a writer, you must write. And this site gets you doing just that!

I'm curious to know how you approach your hubwriting especially if you're doing well monetary wise.For example: I see many hubs about 'the best coffee in San Fransicso' or the 'recent findings of the neanderthal man'why...

Let's say you were trying to describe and tell all what Hubpages is about to someone that only new that it was an internet site..., but you could only use one word. What word would you use? I would use share.jacob

So many of you jumped in with good advice to help me after my hubs crashed and burned last week that I was overwhelmed. I love this community! I know, too, that many of you have been reading my work to help...
