    On a Seeking Alpha article I wrote, I was quoted by John Carney, lead editor of CNBC.com. I could not have progressed to the point of writing the article without my articles written at Hubpages.

    That's pretty cool!  I recently got contacted by a network, requesting to interview me, but I declined.

      Lol, Anna. So many of us writers are just introverts. It is the extroverted writer who becomes famous. Lol. Thanks for the kudo.

        Wel, you do not know her reasons. I am not even close to shy, but I would refuse anyone from Faux News instantly.

          True I don't know her reasons. That is usually the reason.

          Fox Business News has some programming that is not as stupid as Fox political channel. Some. smile

          Actually, if it had been Fox News, I would probably have said yes.  It would be a definite no if it had been MSNBC.  It was neither, and I said no for a variety of reasons, partly because I am indeed introverted, but also because it was a matter of a personal nature.  I just didn't feel comfortable being plastered all over tv for mere ratings.

            Yeah, but think of the visits to your website! Actually, I write about things that are quite technical when it comes to banking. I don't know if I could do justice to an interview. Perhaps if I were more personally involved in Wall Street scams I would feel more confident. smile

              I write about all sorts of things, but the reason I was contacted was for the hub I did on military spouses, and cheating in the military.  There are a lot of personal, and painful memories associated with that, and other people I mention (under false names), that would not want the attention from such an interview.  If I had been contacted about one of my other hubs, say the one on drinking and driving, I would have said yes to an interview.

                Wow, cheating in the military. That is a pretty heavy hub. I put that right up there with terminal cancer. Are you a happy hubber? I am not, seeing that mainstreet is being clocked by the central banks, Basel 3 and ponzi loans.

                  Yeah, a pretty heavy hub.  I have a couple that are.  Though, quite a few that are just silly nonsense, too.  Am I happy hubbing? Of course.  Am I happy with a lot of the stuff I see in the news today?  Not at all.
